Czapek & Cie, a Swiss watch brand launched in 2011, introduces new versions of its Quai des Bergues Guilloché. The unique haute horlogerie men’s model, distinguished by its engine-turned dial pattern, was introduced last year in two colors - Aqua Blue and Sea Salt Grey. The distinctive “ricochet” design shows off the details of the engine turning and the unique angle of the depth of the grooves that can only be achieved by hand turning on a rose engine.

“It took us a year to find the engine turning pattern that we wanted and to stand out from the tens, if not hundreds, of existing historical motifs. Nevertheless, we think that there are still many new possibilities that we can look into to develop this even further. The same is true for the dial colors, for which we believe few other brands offer such a bold selection of colors.” Xavier de Roquemaurel, Czapek & Cie CEO

IN 2018, the classically elegant Quai des Bergues Guilloché returns with new dial colors. First of all, there is the “Black Prince” model, available in 15 pieces worldwide, which combines a black ADLC titanium case with a galvanized black engine-turned dial. Thanks to the SuperLuminova accents on hours markers and hands, this is the sportiest watch in the range. The new “Havana brown” model is crafted from rose gold and issued in a limited edition of 15 pieces.

The “Slate Grey” model is made from steel, and it comes in a 10-piece edition. The bold colors of these three new dials are enhanced with a galvanic coating that interacts with light so that the tone of the dial changes with different light conditions.

The legendary nineteenth century Swiss watchmaking company - Czapek & Cie - has been revived and is launching today with the 2016 collection featuring Quai des Bergues timepiece.
