For its second participation in the biennial fundraiser for research on Duchenne muscular dystrophy, Czapek is presenting a handsome version of its Faubourg de Cracovie chronograph fit with an onyx and chalcedony dial. The blue colour of the chalcedony counters is a reference to the colour of this 8th edition of Only Watch. The chronograph seconds hand is in the same colour. Just like the watch presented at the 2017 edition of Only Watch, the dial features the caption ‘courage every second’ (transferred in between 12 o’clock and 2 o’clock).
For the first time, the 41.5mm case is presented in ADLC grade 5 titanium. Water-resistant to 50m, it features a sapphire box crystal. The chronograph pushers are smartly integrated into the crown protectors. Inside is the automatic SXH3 calibre, a high-frequency chronograph with column-wheel and vertical clutch. Operating at 36,000 vibrations per hour, it delivers 65h of power reserve on one barrel. The elaborate workings and the superb decoration of the mechanism can be appreciated through the exhibition caseback.
The Czapek Faubourg de Cracovie for Only Watch is presented on a black alligator leather strap with blue stitching and secured with a folding buckle. For more information, please visit www.czapek.com
