Czapek & Cie introduces a new Faubourg de Cracovie chronograph model, for the first time featuring a stunning aventurine dial. Unveiled at the Watch Time New York show, this timepiece is limited to 50 pieces.
The Faubourg de Cracovie Aventurine, like all other models in the Faubourg de Cracovie line, has a 41.5- millimeter steel case with crown protectors serving as pushers.
The new Faubourg de Cracovie features three aventurine dials, as each of the chronograph counters is rapporté, i.e. fixed inside the hours and minutes dial. The choice of applied markers on the dark blue dial is aesthetic, aimed at giving the timepiece a sportier look.
The case hosts the SXH3 calibre, a best-in class COSC-certified automatic integrated chronograph movement delivering 65 hours’ power reserve from a single barrel that drives the balance wheel at 36,000 vph / 5 Hertz.
