Hands-On – Czapek Genève Quai des Bergues Guilloché

by Xavier Markl "The name Czapek, once famed as a partner of what would become Patek Philippe, came back to the forefront of the scene late 2015 with the elegant and well-thought out Quai des Bergues. The watch was awarded the public prize at GPHG 2016, one of the most (if not the most) meaningful industry award ceremony, which is no small achievement. The collection reflects the Czapek ethics to propose finely crafted classics whose understated style offers a distinctive twist and a distinctive character.

This year the model is enhanced with exquisite guilloche dials, hand-made in the traditional way. This stylish timepiece is offered in three different versions: white gold with ‘sea-salt grey’ dial, steel with ‘aqua blue’ dial, and a unique piece in pink gold with an ‘emperor blue’ dial. These are manufactured with Metalem (a prominent maker of quality dials) and more precisely in one of their specialized ateliers where a handful of expert craftsmen preserve the sacrosanct art of hand-guilloché in the Val-de-Ruz. These are handcrafted to a degree of refinement which lends true uniqueness and authenticity to these works of art."
