Czapek & Cie Faubourg de Cracovie for Only Watch

For the second time, Czapek & Cie. will support the Only Watch charity auction with a unique piece, the Faubourg de Cracovie Only Watch – a black onyx dial version of its chronograph, featuring chalcedony counters in reference to the official colour of Only Watch 8th edition. Striped chalcedony adds to the piece an extraordinary feel. “The rarity of this semi precious stone and its natural stripes convey a sense of immortal beauty ”, says Xavier de Roquemaurel, CEO of Czapek & Cie.

The onyx dial of the Faubourg de Cracovie Only Watch hosts the inscription “Courage every second” between 12 and 2 o’clock, the same emblematic sentence that was “secretly” engraved on the white grand-feu enamel dial of the unique piece created for Only Watch 2017. “Courage every second is now becoming Czapek signature to support Only Watch and the battle against this disease. It is a reminder of the purpose of our own life, of our passage on earth, and as well a way to let our heart beat in harmony with the kids and their family ”, adds Xavier.

The timepiece is encased in 41.5 mm titanium case with black ADLC® coating fitted with a sapphire crystal glass-box on the dial side. It is powered by the SXH3 caliber, visible through the sapphire glass caseback. This integrated column-wheel automatic chronograph movement was built by Vaucher Manufacture Fleurier in a bespoke execution for Czapek. It delivers 65h power reserve from a single barrel that drives the balance wheel at 36,000 vph. Its linear hammer reduces wear and tear on parts and resets all the associated dials in one easy movement, while the vertical clutch ensures a perfect start for the chronograph hand.

“Doing well by doing good has always been part of our mission and vision as we revived the brand” declares Xavier de Roquemaurel. “All together we have won many battles: the battle of altruism and empathy; the battle of beauty and research of excellence; the battle of awareness for research on Duchenne muscular dystrophy. Now, let’s continue pushing hard, and win the battle to cure this disease”, adds Luc Pettavino, Founder and Organizer of Only Watch.

The brand

Czapek & Cie. harks back to the origins of one of the watch industry’s most prestigious names, which was born from the watchmaking skills of two Polish émigrés who sought refuge in Switzerland after Poland’s November uprising.
