Czapek - Quai des Bergues Rosewood : Natural-looking Beauty

Czapek Quai des Bergues Rosewood : Natural-looking Beauty

The brand launches the Quai des Bergues Rosewood S and Rosewood Diamonds, two iterations of its signature guilloché Ricochet dial in a distinctive new hue and with baguette-cut diamonds indexes.

The Dubai Watch Week is the perfect stage to present in avant-première the latest additions to Czapek Quai des Bergues collection. The two new references have in common a unique and unusual engine-turned dial in a “rosewood” colour, a demonstration of Czapek’s continuous exploration of the endless possibilities of this fine watchmaking technique in collaboration with its partner Metalem – a guilloche maker, based in Le Locle, Switzerland.

Once more, Czapek challenged the artisans at Metalem to come up with an innovative, genderless hue for the brand’s signature engine-turned dial. “The result was this deep, natural-looking colour that invokes wide-open desert spaces, with a reddish cast that changes with the sunrays…", explains Xavier de Roquemaurel, CEO of Czapek &. Cie. "Something hard to define from raspberry to carmine, a fascinating new electroplated colour, the first one with a clear red tone”.

While the Quai des Bergues Rosewood is conceived as a genderless piece, with is 38.5mm steel case, the Rosewood Diamonds in white gold winks at ladies that look for a fine watchmaking timepiece, with a sophisticated design and a discrete touch of sparkle. Nine shimmering baguette-cut diamonds have been set on the dial after an extremely complicated cutting process.

Both watches are equipped with the Quai des Bergues range’s Czapek SHX1 proprietary calibre, a 7-days hand-wound movement with two spring barrels and a power reserve of 168 hours (7 days). Developed in collaboration with Chronode, the movement is finely decorated with open ratchets, blued screws, bevelled edges and sand-blasted bridges. “Our approach to watchmaking for women is close to the one that was at the origins of watchmaking", continues Xavier de Roquemaurel. "We like to play with proportions, size and some feminine details, but we above all like to propose women ‘haute horlogerie’ mechanical products”.

The Quai des Bergues Rosewood and Rosewood Diamonds are also offered with brilliant-cut diamonds on the bezel as a customizable option.
