Czapek & Cie Faubourg de Cracovie Secret Alloy

Take a closer look at the The Faubourg de Cracovie Secret Alloy, a steel 5 Hertz chronograph with an unconventional ‘raw’ grey engine-turned dial.

The Faubourg de Cracovie Secret Alloy is  a steel 5 Hertz chronograph with an unconventional ‘raw’ grey engine-turned dial. The timepiece owes its name “Secret Alloy” to the alloy 401, a special alloy developed for Czapek and made of gold (55%), platinum, palladium and silver. It was born from the collaboration with Metalem craftsmen that showed the ‘raw’, non-coloured dials with the Czapek ‘Resonance’ pattern after hand-engraving them. 

“The rough tint of the dial without the electroplating coating looked so incredibly beautiful that we decided to make it a watch of our collection”, explains Xavier de Roquemaurel, CEO of Czapek & Cie.

 

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.
