Re-launched in 2015, the legendary Swiss watch brand Czapek & Cie presents its new line of haute-horlogerie collection this year as a tribute to Place Vendôme, the famous square in Paris where François Czapek, spiritus rector of the brand, opened a high end luxury watch boutique in the mid-nineteenth century.
