This registered and unique design, where intersecting circular lines form a pattern of bas-relief squares, goes back to François Czapek himself and was developed by Czapek together with its Swiss partner for engine-turned dials Metalem. The profound blue hue is manufactured using a special ALD coating developed by another Czapek partner, Positive Coating, based in La-Chauxde- Fonds.

Named after the location of François Czapek’s third boutique in Warsaw, Poland, the Faubourg de Cracovie is a refined and muscular integrated chronograph. Until now it was only available in steel and titanium.

The Czapek SXH3 Caliber is a COSC-certified, 5-Hertz bespoke automatic movement delivering 65 hours of power reserve from a single barrel. It incorporates a column-wheel, a one piece linear reset hammer, and a vertical clutch. It is finely finished, with diamond-blasted anthracite bridges visible through the transparent case back.

Named “Océan d’Or” – “golden ocean” in French – the new model comes in a limited edition of 8 pieces for the 5N rose gold version and only two pieces for the 2N yellow gold edition.
