Antarctique

Terre Adélie

Subscription Only
Limited Edition

Welcome to the Subscription page of the new Antarctique Collection!

The Antarctique is the next chapter in the history of Czapek & Cie. It combines sophisticated style and look with our first fully in-house power movement.

We started with a white sheet of paper to imagine, from scratch, the automatic movement of our dreams.

We could then imagine an architecture as open as possible to reveal the gear train, with 7 bridges finely chiseled as if they were embroidered lingerie, a sort of “horological eroticism”.

Welcome to the Subscription page of the new Antarctique Collection!

The Antarctique is the next chapter in the history of Czapek & Cie. It combines sophisticated style and look with our first fully in-house power movement.

We started with a white sheet of paper to imagine, from scratch, the automatic movement of our dreams.

We could then imagine an architecture as open as possible to reveal the gear train, with 7 bridges finely chiseled as if they were embroidered lingerie, a sort of “horological eroticism”.


This architecture is inspired by the XIX century movements and at the same time is reflecting our mindset today with a striking open-work. The micro rotor is casted in 100% recycled 18k to reveal the caliber and foster our commitment with our beloved Planet. The escapement features a state-of-the-art variable inertia function. It is coupled with a strong barrel to run for more than 50 hours of power reserve and deliver enough torque to power any kind of complication in the future. The exclusive diamond-finished bridges are made of the finest and strongest ‘maillechort’ (German silver) to endure the shocks of a sporty life.


For such an exceptional engine, we needed a no less extraordinary “chassis” … And that’s how Antarctique was born!

The name was inspired by the trip to Antartica of one of the company shareholders and raises a host of associations, from intrepid explorers to the sheer breath-taking beauty of Nature. The Sixth Continent is also a symbol of the need for humans to preserve the planet and represents Czapek’s commitment to doing its part, using 100% recycled gold but also safeguarding many Swiss watchmaking artisans.


We will launch the first model on May 26th. It will be called Terre Adélie and will be available by Subscription only with deliveries starting on 10.10.2020. The different versions will be all be made at once and once only. There will be no chance for a later decision or a re-order.

On May 2nd 2020, the New York Times published an exclusive preview of a no-less exclusive Antarctique model: Orion Nebula. It is a limited edition of 10 pieces, with 10 different and unique hand-varnished ‘nebulas’ dials. This model is already available in our Special Editions section
