The modern Czapek that started it all - now in 40.5 mm.

On the occasion of Watch Time NYC 2023, Czapek has introduced a new, mid-sized 40.5mm variant of the Quai des Bergues, broadening the line to offer an option for those who prefer a smaller case size. 

When Czapek reemerged onto the independent watch scene only a few short years ago, it was with the Quai de Bergues - a lyrical time only watch featuring an unusual power reserve indicator: the watch is designed to be wound every Sunday with the power reserve showing the relative energy left into the movement as it relates to days of the week.

Founder of Czapek, Xavier de Roquemarel, talk about the romance of setting one's watches on the weekend - not too dissimilar from 18th century, a golden age of watchmaking - when many people would wind their clocks for the week.

While the size of the watch has changed - the SXH1 movement and the profile of the case remain the same to the larger Quai des Bergues. The Tuxedo Black dial leverages Czapek's unique "secret alloy", and features a unique guilloché pattern called "Double Soleil" inspired by 1930's Art Deco design as brought to life through Czapek's elongated indices.
