PLACE VENDÔME

DARK MATTER

Czapek & Cie unveils the Place Vendôme Tourbillon ‘Dark Matter’, the ‘rockest’ version of its most luxurious collection. Inspired by the Place Vendôme ‘Ombres’ in titanium, it features a black titanium case with ADLC coating and dark bridges with PVD treatment. A limited edition of 10 pieces.

presentation

The newly born timepiece is not only inspired by the Ombres tourbillon in titanium, but takes elements from other watches in the Czapek portfolio. The 43.5mm case, in 5-grade titanium, features a black ADLC coating as the Faubourg de Cracovie ‘Courage every second’ chronograph - the unique piece donated by Czapek to the Only Watch charity event and auctioned off by Christies for 110’000 CHF on November 9th 2019.
The fine-looking black bridges of the Dark Matter have been treated with PVD coating, ensuring the conservation of the colour over time, by the same company that crafts the blued gold Fleur-de-Lys hands in the Quai des Bergues collection.

movement

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.
