Swiss luxury watch brand Czapek & Cie has created a unique piece with a very special dial to pay tribute to the children and their families fighting against muscular dystrophy.
The uniqueness of the timepiece dedicated to Only Watch 2017 lies in its enamel ‘Grand Feu’ dial featuring a secret sentence: « Courage every second ». The sentence remains invisible and hence secret until its owner reveals it with a ray of light, for example when the sun is bouncing off the dial at a certain angle.
Model: Quai des Bergues N°25ter « Courage every second »
XO Steel: a secret stainless steel alloy unique to Czapek, normally used in the North Sea’s extremely corrosive conditions.
Dimensions: Ø 42.5mm – Thickness 11.8mm
Immaculate white enamel ‘Grand Feu‘ dial of 36.7mm ø with two welded sub-dials. The large size of the dial reveals a very rare bombé shape created by capillarity, and a ‘secret sentence’ created using a rare enamel making technique. It also boasts a secret signature by Francois Czapek in the small seconds sub-dial.
The SXH1 is a 3 hertz Czapek proprietary, double- barrel, 7-day, manually wound movement. It is an unusual re-interpretation of the original movement of Czapek model 3430 made in 1850. The movement’s bridges have been finely sandblasted to recall the original frosted nish of the nineteenth century movements. Angles are all nished by hand (bevelling) and ratchets are open as in the original version.
