Inspiration

Overview

When three industry insiders came together to revive Czapek & Cie, they wanted to ensure a direct visual connection to the Czapek's of old: grand feu enamel, elongated Roman numerals, slim Fleur de Lys hands… And the launch-model Quai des Bergues achieved this, and then some. Which means, while the precious-metal models remain as traditional homages, space has now been freed to mix things up a bit; to switch things up a gear. 

Gone are the Roman numerals, Fleur de Lys hands, anything remotely ornate, in fact. All replaced with a streamlined, industrial treatment. The case is in an exclusie anti-corrosion steel and the two-tone dial is in anthracite grey and an anthracite grey brushed brass ring.

Inspiration

The Quai des Bergues collection was based on an old pocket watch design and so-named for where Francois Czapek had his first atelier in Geneva. This sleek evolution takes that venerable past and projects to the future.

In The Know

“The Czapek Quai des Bergues is thus an elegant, dress watch (in its gold editions) that also exists in sportier editions (in steel and titanium)”. Brice Goulard, Monochrome

“The watch sits well on the wrist and is, thanks to it lacking an automatic matrix, slim enough to truly work well as a watch worn with more formal attire”. Rob Nudds, aBlogtoWatch

“The Quai des Bergues comes across as a distinctively elegant, nostalgia accurate timepiece”. Jonathan Ho, The Millenary

“Czapek is applauded by me for their courage and final result of building or re-building a new high-end watch brand. ” Robert-Jan Broer , Fratello Watches
