Known for its two sizes, Czapek's Quai des Bruges finds a sweet spot in the middle with the latest release - the 40.5 mm Double Soleil, available in Tuxedo Black (shown here) or Deep Blue. This mid-sized version retains many of the hallmarks of its predecessors, with a few minute changes: a subtle update to the slope of the lugs, and refinement of the case-side recess to allow space for the SXH1 movement. The dial color choices has also been revisited, this time with a bold new guilloché pattern. The Guilloché Double Soleil gains its name from a solar optical illusion that causes the perception of a luminous spot on the sun, known as parhelia or "sun dogs." The design plays a trick on the eye making it difficult to assess whether the lines are radiating inwards or outwards.

Delivery expected late 2024. Please contact Jeremy at jeremy@osterjewelers.com or phone 303.572.1111 to inquire about availability. Also available in Deep Blue.

It's not just the dial and case that have been refreshed, the SXH1 calibre has also had an update thanks to its new open-worked bridges. "Like the new dial guillochage, this is very much in keeping with our desire always to display the beauty of craftsmanship - to honour the hand of man - which is the essence of haute horlogerie and reveals more than time" - Czapek CEO Xavier de Roquemaurel.
