Authenticity & Warranty
Service, Warranty & After-sales
One of the 3 founders of the revived Czapek, Sebastien, is a watchmaker expert in Timepieces After-Sales servicing, and we have put it as a central element of our long-term success. All Czapek Genève timepieces, sold through retail partners or directly, come with a 3 years international product warranty, one year more than the usual practice in the industry. Our watchmaker will personally take care of your After-Sales inquiries and will give you a prompt answer (10 days) regarding the servicing of your watch. On top of our own After-sales commitment, we have taken an extra commitment with Chronode, which will provide the movement after-sales components and repair service to our customers for a period of 15 years after the last order we make.
Preserving your Czapek For all mechanical timepieces, good maintenance is key to guarantee the long life of your Czapek. In order to ensure this, we recommend your Czapek be serviced every 4-5 years. In order to minimize wear of your Czapek we recommend the following:
- The Czapek Quai des Bergues and Place Vendôme collections are manually wound. Wind them until you meet significant resistance. Avoid over-winding the crown when winding. When the watch has reached maximum wind, the crown encounters severe resistance to further winding. Stop at this point. Be sure to follow the instructions of your timepiece.
- The Czapek Timepieces have a water resistance of 3 atmos (30 meters) for the gold versions and 5 atm (50 meters) for the Titanium and steel versions. Alligator straps are not water-resistant and will get torn quickly if you use your piece during aquatic activities. We recommend using our rubber strap for these activities, keeping in mind that diving activities should be done with diving watches.
- Avoid extreme temperature changes (above 50C or below -10C) as it might affect the metal components.
- Your timepiece is shock-resistant for everyday use, such as knocks and bumps. However, we strongly advise against exposing your Czapek to heavy shocks (such as might be encountered in sports).
- Avoid direct contact with chemical agents such as detergents and cosmetics, as they may negatively affect your watch or bracelet.
Contact details for Servicing your Czapek
We recommend you contact us directly, then send us your watch. Please find our contact information on the top of this page. Your watch will be serviced by our own technicians.
