Launched in November 2015, Czapek is as yet a moderately youthful independent watchmaker, which in 4 years has figured out how to become one of the top individuals from the outside the box scene, among other extraordinary names. All things considered, if the brand Czapek was as of late disclosed, the name Czapek has a long, rich and amazing history. Furthermore, there’s considerably more behind this name than simply one more watchmaker; Czapek has numerous extraordinary aspects that make it unique in relation to the remainder of the group. This is the thing that we’re going to find in this video with Xavier de Roquemaurel, CEO of Czapek.
Certainly, the top of the line watches created by Czapek have incredible visual and mechanical allure. Think “Quai des Bergues” , “Place Vendôme” Tourbillon or “Faubourg de Cracovie” Chronograph – all places connected to Czapek’s history.
The name “Czapek” alludes to Franciszek Czapek, a Pole of Czech root (brought into the world 1811). He showed up in Switzerland following a significant international occasion, the Polish November Uprising, when he was a fighter of the National Guard, in Warsaw. After his appearance in Geneva (July 1, 1832) he gallicised his name, consequently becoming François Czapek. He began to construct watches under his name however the primary defining moment in his life came later. The gathering among Czapek and Patek in 1836 was to change the existences of the two men. Antoine Norbert de Patek was welcomed by his compatriot, François Czapek to begin a vocation in watchmaking. Patek, Czapek & Cie. was dispatched on May 1, 1839, a company that kept going six years. Czapek – who had just begun an undertaking with a specific Moreau not long after showing up in Switzerland – founded Czapek & Cie. on May 1, 1845, with another accomplice, Juliusz Gruzewski. This is the set of experiences on which the “new Czapek” has been built.
Now, quick forward to 2015 and the introduction of Czapek looks as another individual from the independent watchmaking scene. What makes it extraordinary? An unprecedented pioneering approach known as “crowdfunding equity”. In addition to the fact that collectors have the likelihood to obtain a watch a piece of the company, which currently has in excess of 200 shareholders. The second particularity of Czapek is that the company professes to be a “horizontal manufacture”. While everyone discusses in-house and assembling, Czapek inclines toward another option, where the watches are made by the association of probably the best case, dial, hands and development creators, rather than attempting to fabricate everything inside – consequently profiting by the experience and abilities of these partners.
And in selectiveness for MONOCHROME, in this video, Xavier de Roquemaurel, the CEO of Czapek, will uncover a few parts of the new development to be dispatched in April 2020, which will include Czapek’s first in-house type – a programmed, miniature rotor motor roused by old Geneva-style watches, with finger bridges.
