One in seven Britons might be replacing watches with new smart technology, such as Apple, Garmin and Fitbits. However, I still believe that a quality timepiece is still an essential accessory. It’s class vs pure class and with only the best watches in existence Faubourg de Cracovie, is the one to keep your eyes on. 

Named after the location Czapek and opened in 1850 in Warsaw, Poland they have differentiated themselves away from their competitors.

Whether you are influenced by tech-heavy chronograph or a classic slim-line piece, this brand is designed to compliment, suit and the Faubourg de Cracovie certainly makes a statement about style, innovation and elegance.

The new collection for it’s growing portfolio sees the Faubourg de Cracovie bring out three established new models called “Grand Feu”, “L’Heure Bleue” and “Dioné & Rhéa they combine traditional refinement with a sportive twist of chronograph function with three different dials that illustrate the outstanding quality of Swiss craftsmanship.

 Czapek & Cie CEO Xavier de Roquemaurel says, “That’s our latest model, and it’s unmistakably Czapek, traditional but with a modern flair.” Widely considered as one of the most inspirational and sophisticated pieces from the new collection.

The mythology behind these stunning watches comes two different dial crafts. One style reintroduces the fascinating guilloché “Ricochet” of the Quai des Bergues collection. To make the dial come alive they generate circular lines to form a pattern of bas-relief squares, recalling the wave interference pattern-maybe a comfortable classic for the beach-can you imagine this on a watch face-pure class. 

The second dial is coated with beautiful grand-feu white enamel, which you could say is perhaps the most unexpected in a modern chronograph, it provides a contrasting backdrop for the various functions displayed and the watches delicately.

The Faubourg de Cracovie represents another significant milestone in the company’s modern history, so if you’re looking for something dynamic, that holds its value and investment these watches will give you just that – a quality timepiece.

All three pieces will complement any outfit (which is super useful) and let’s not forget the basic rules black straps for formal wear, metal strap for casual and a material strap for the days you want to escape. 

For the pleasure of watch lovers and collectors, these worldwide renowned pieces will be available to purchase on June 30, 2018.
