The watch that brought Collective and Czapek together.

In 2020, Collective reached out to Czapek to discuss the potential for a collaboration and, after spending time with the line, we decided that we wanted to use the Antarctique as the platform for what would eventually become the P.04

While that collaboration is long sold out, the Antarctique in its many variants are still in regular production today.  Each variation showcases the incredible dial work and of course, the in house SXH5 caliber, which is not only a slight 4.2mm thick, it's also finished to an extraordinarily high degree.

The Antarctique is a thin, elegant sports watch that is at home in all settings. Water resistant to 120m and featuring an integrated stainless steel bracelet, the Antarctique is one of the most recognizable modern independent sports watches available today.

The Revelation takes the Antarctique to new heights

The high art of skeletonisation allows connoisseur and neophyte alike to discover and delight in the inner workings of a watch, the interplay of the hollowed-out bridges, wheels, and hands around a filigree mainplate.

The decision to skeletonize the movement raised a number of significant challenges, the first one being to completely reverse the escapement given the complete redesign and re-orientation of the movement. Then the oscillating mass had to be engraved on both sides, for example, and the crown mechanism, now visible to the naked eye, had to be reworked entirely. On a more technical note, the seconds hand could no longer be connected by a bridge to the center, so space was made at 4:30 for a small seconds dial. The solution was to use sapphire crystal ring for the seconds. It is discreetly attached to the larger sapphire ring carrying the hours and minutes and ensuring as much transparency as possible, so the wearer can take a deep dive into the mechanism.

Gradually, what emerged was a new movement, the SXH7. As it evolved, elements from other Czapek models found their place, like the central tripod from the Antarctique Rattrapante holding together the finely cut out bridges. The position of the small seconds, too, is reminiscent of the famous day-date subdial of the Quai des Bergues.
