ORIGINAL CZAPEK CALIBER FROM 1850 & CALIBER SXH1, CZAPEK PROPRIETARY MOVEMENT
This manually-wound movement has two barrel springs and runs at a rate of 21,600 vibrations per hour, which translates as 3 Hertz. It boasts a power reserve of seven days. The anglage finish and the sandblasted bridges conferes a beautiful and modern look totally drawn from the past…
It was developed by Czapek with Chronode, the Le Locle-based company of Jean-François Mojon.
This proprietary, manually wound movement beating at 21,600 vph (3 Hz) is the second movement developed by Czapek with Chronode, the Le Locle-based company of Jean-François Mojon.
The SXH2 features a one-minute suspended tourbillon and comes together with a second time zone for today’s world travelers, a day/night disk, and a classic power reserve indicator. The single barrel spring delivers a solid 60 hours of power.
Czapek’s first chronograph is driven by a bespoke automatic movement, the SXH3. This integrated column-wheel chronograph caliber was built by the outstanding craftspeople at Vaucher Manufacture Fleurier in the Jura mountains, the cradle of Swiss watchmaking.
It delivers 65h power reserve from a single barrel that drives the balance wheel at 36,000 vph. The movement makes use of some of the most advanced and effective mechanical elements, like the linear hammer, which reduces wear and tear on parts and resets all the associated dials in one easy movement. A modern solution, the vertical clutch, ensures a perfect start for the chronograph hand.
Finally, the diamond-blasted anthracite bridges give the final aesthetic twist to the movement visible through the transparent case back.
