Czapek & Cie discovers gold in Antarctica with Mount Erebus

Czapek & Cie responds to enthusiast and collector demand by introducing its best-selling Antarctique timepiece in a gold case for the first time.

To complement the precious metal case, Czapek has revived the legendary lamé dial from the original Antarctique Terre Adélie limited edition launched in 2020.

Rooted in François Czapek's 19th-century watchmaking legacy, Czapek & Cie's haute horlogerie vision prioritizes Beauty and sharing. Xavier de Roquemaurel, CEO of Czapek & Cie, acknowledges the strong demand for an Antarctique model in gold and explores the successful collection's origins and Antarctica's geography.

Named after the southernmost active volcano on Earth, the new Antarctique 'Mount Erebus' draws inspiration from Ross Island. The lamé dial, reminiscent of the Terre Adélie edition, reflects the volcanic theme. Crafted using a special comb technique, the dial complements the rose gold case, offered in Deep Blue with a CVD technique.

The 40.5 mm gold case shares design elements with the steel version, featuring flowing curves, finely honed angles, and a balance of brushed and polished surfaces.

The rose gold model will be limited to 100 pieces, available for pre-order globally, while the yellow gold version, limited to 50 pieces, will be offered exclusively online. Deliveries commence in the second quarter of 2024.
