Czapek & Cie.
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.
Six years ago, the Czapek name was purchased by a trio of entrepreneurs, and Czapek & Cie. was reborn and it presented its first watches to the world at SalonQP in 2015.
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).
Since the launch of the brand on 10 November 2015 it has produced two models and has won The Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève (GPHG) 2016 and has been selected for the final round of the Grand Prix 2017.
