The Patek, Czapek & Cie. watch brand was born when two Polish émigrés, Antoine Patek and François Czapek, joined forces in Geneva. The partnership was to last six years, after which the two gentlemen went their separate ways, both continuing in the watch business. But while one of them grew into what is today one of the most coveted names in watchmaking, the other was largely forgotten.
On 10th November 2015 the Czapek name and brand were revived in a new company in true 21st century style, encouraging potential customers to invest directly in the brand by purchasing share packages that grant them discounts on the company’s timepieces.
The products stand out with a unique design featuring two sub-dials in the bottom half of the dial, recalling those of an original Czapek & Cie. watch No. 3430 from 1850. They are fitted with exclusive movements developed in conjunction with Chronode (Jean-François Mojon).
