The story of Czapek & Cie is extraordinary: One of the most famous watchmaking names in history has been revived by a small group of passionate entrepreneurial watchmakers and collectors/enthusiasts/investors. Join us as we hear from Czapek & Cie co-founder and CEO, Xavier de Roquemaurel. We discuss the origin and founding of the brand through a unique crowd-funding process resulting in a refreshingly transparent brand, crafted with great care and passion. We will discuss the various partners involved in running the company as well as the supply partners who create the artistry and bring the Czapek vision to life.

With the incredibly short history of the modern brand, the fact that they have introduced 3 distinct collections is extremely impressive. Add to this achievement the superb Tourbillon GMT and it is no wonder that serious collectors are taking note. Chatting with Xavier brings to life the inspiration, partnerships and even some of the technical secrets that go into creating the distinctive dials, cases and movements that carry the famous Czapek & Cie name. We are confident that you will most definitely enjoy this podcast. It was a great pleasure chatting with Xavier and discovering the interesting choices made by the Czapek team and discovering that, like all great art, every piece crafted holds secrets and discoveries.
