Lady 7-day Manual Winding
The Quai des Bergues Ladies collection reflects elegance and the distinctive style of Czapek watches. All the models in this line feature the 7-day
Caliber SXH1 proprietary mechanical hand-wound movement and the characteristic Czapek fleur-delys hands, which come in Rose Gold, «BlackGold» or «BlueGold» finish. The subdials at 4:30 and 7:30 reveal some technical wizardry: the hands are replaced by two rotating mother-of-pearl discs, an innovative aesthetic approach with a distinctively feminine face. The casing is absolutely stunning and enhances the mechanical beauty of the manual winding movement.
The SXH1 caliber is a proprietary movement designed by Czapek. It is the first in a family
of movements developed specifically for Czapek watches, according to the strictest rules of the watchmaking art. It was conceived in cooperation with Jean-François Mojon, a designer watchmaker who heads the Le Locle based company Chronode.
This haute horlogerie mechanical calibre boasts 31 jewels. It is finely decorated and remains aesthetically and functionally true to the 1850 original. The architecture remains symmetrical, and the sandblasted finish is a modern interpretation of the ‘satiné frost’ technique used in the 19th Century – a process of gold plating using mercury evaporation.
This manually-wound movement has two barrel springs and runs at a rate of 21,600 vibrations per hour, which translates to 3 Hertz. It features a power reserve of seven days. The manual beveling finish and the sandblasted bridges create a beautiful and modern look, inspired from the past. The most striking elements remain the open ratchets, with teeth polished in ‘bevel’ and unique to Czapek SXH1. They become its mechanical signature.
The gold case was designed to be like a pocket watch perfectly fitting on a wrist. The generous and smooth round shape of the case, and the beauty of its curves, are an expression of the purity of the brand. The White Gold exists in two variations. The No.7 and No.3, both featuring a set of «Fleur de Lys» hands in «BlackGold» or in «BlueGold», with exquisite indexes with diamonds.
The collection in 5N Rose Gold features the magnificent Mother-of-Pearl dial with VVS white diamonds. The watches all feature the characteristic Czapek Fleur de Lys hands, which come in “BlackGold” or “BlueGold” finish. The sub-dials at 4:30 and 7:30 feature a bit of technical wizardry: the hands have given way to rotating mother-of-pearl discs, an innovative aesthetic approach.
Exclusive « XO » anti-corrosion Stainless Steel case featured on this beautiful timepieces Quai des Bergues No.11 is an incredible fusion between the elegant Czapek design and outstanding craftsmenship.
