  • REVIEW: Czapek Antarctique

    56 hours of power reserve coming from a single barrel. Limited to 99 pieces

    The imperative to make a stainless steel sport watch has left few high-end watch companies untouched. It makes sense: This is, after all, a style that collectors seem to want. Today, we see that Czapek & Cie., the Geneva-based watchmaker perhaps known best for its hand-wound dress watches with extended power reserves, is no exception. Czapek has announced a new range of stainless steel sport models with integrated bracelets along with a new automatic movement to power them. Let's have a look.

    The Czapek & Cie. Antarctique Terre Adélie will cost $18,900 (the Orion Nebula is an even $20,000). Subscription orders for the Terre Adélie will be taken through July 15. Watches are expected to be delivered starting on October 10 of this year.

    The Czapek & Cie. Antarctique Terre Adélie. 40.5 x 10.6mm stainless steel case with integrated stainless steel bracelet (comes with either a rubber or calf strap), switching is simple thanks to Czapek exclusive Easy Release system. Screw-down crown. Water resistant to 120 meters. Hand-decorated lamé dial in one of four colors. Sapphire crystals front and back. Powered by the new Caliber SXH5 beating at 28,800 vph and running in 28 jewels with 56 hours of power reserve coming from a single barrel. Limited to 99 pieces.

    “America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.
    If destruction be our lot, we must ourselves be its author and finisher. As a nation of freemen, we must live through all time, or die by suicide".

    "Flesh could not keep its glamour, nor eyes their sheen. They would go to nothing soon. But monsters are forever"

    Love that Hubble telescope space dial. That's a Damn good looking TIMEpiece. Love the steel bracelet version too. But that price.....I'll wait for Invicta to come out with their homage version.
    Thanks for the intel Mike

      Attractive offerings, but a little outside my financial radius. Thanks Mike.
