The Basics

The Czapek Quai des Bergues is inspired by the reference 3430 pocket watch, created in the 1850’s by Francois Czapek. It features a power reserve indicator (doubling as a day indicator) at 4:30, and small seconds at 7:30 – courtesy of its hand-wound caliber SXH1. The Quai des Bergues N.29 bis has a white gold case with Czapek’s own ‘Queen Bee’ hallmark, symbolizing the resurrection of the brand. The dial is Grand Feu enamel and features a secret signature. Time is indicated through a set of ‘black gold’ Fleur de Lys hands. Quai des Bergues N.29 is similar but fitted with a different set of hands.
