Czapek & Cie. - Quai des Bergues N°33s

"The Quai des Bergues N°33s takes the characteristic features of the Quai des Bergues No. 33bis and show them in a new light. It’s what’s known as an “exercise in style,” employing elements that won over the public of the Grand Prix de l’Horlogerie de Genève (GPHG) last November 2016: the immaculate white of the grand feu dial, the slenderness of the full-gold fleur-de-lys hands, the two subdials in the lower section, with the power reserve connected to the weekdays by a single hand, and, finally, the proprietary manually wound caliber SXH1.

But the Quai des Bergues N°33s's novelty is an iteration in a timeless case measuring 38.5 mm in diameter. This new version still recalls the original François Czapek pocket watch dating to around 1850, but it has been adapted for finer wrists."
