  • Catalogue Essay

    - Introduced in 2020, the Czapek Antarctique Passage de Drake Roaring Twenties borrows its sport-chic case design from the Antarctique Terre Adélie line and combines its with an unusual trapezoid dial motif. Visually striking and named by Czapek as the "Stairway to Eternity", the unique three-dimensional stamped surface creates an interesting and captivating play of shadows across the dial. Originally released with four different dial colours: Ice White, Deep Blue, Black Ink, and a limited edition of 40 pieces labelled “Roaring Forties” grey, of which the present timepiece is an example.

    - Fitted with a 40.5mm stainless steel case, the Czapek Roaring Twenties is fitted with a brushed integrated bracelet, whose brushed links are themselves connected with highly polished links in the form of a “C” for Czapek. The bracelet further features a quick-change system to allow the wearer to interchange it with the rubber strap that is decorated with the same trapezoid pattern found on the dial.

    - Inside beats the automatic caliber SXH5, combining sophistication and high reliability, the SXH5 merges haute horlogerie angling techniques with avant-garde laser engravings.

    - Complete with its full set of accessories and in virtually unworn condition, when launched the present model immediately sold out. Currently having a waiting list, the present limited edition Czapek in Roaring Forties grey is a great opportunity to acquire a highly coveted and limited edition wristwatch.
