Czapek & Cie Antarctique Emerald Iceberg Limited Edition

Like the Orion Nebula and Abyss models launched in 2020, the Emerald Iceberg features a hand-varnished dial. It is created using a proprietary technique developed by Czapek’s partner Metalem, in Le Locle. The dial is first varnished, hand painted with a brush, lacquered and finally polished. All the steps are done by hand, so that each dial is unique.
