Czapek & Cie. is a manufacturer of fine Swiss watches founded in 1845 in Geneva. It is most noted for its bespoke timepieces manufactured for the European nobility in the 19th century. In 2011, Xavier de Roquemaurel, a luxury marketing consultant and watch lover, Harry Guhl an art expert, and Sébastien Follonier, a watchmaker, came together to revive Czapek.
The company was reestablished on October 21, 2011, by creating a first model, a design study Czapek Chronograph.
The Company was relaunched and its development funded by an unprecedented equity campaign in November 2015, raising over 2 million CHF and bringing together more than 100 watch lovers and entrepreneurs from around the world. In an effort to remain as faithful as possible to Czapek's spirit and style, they created the first model of the collection based on the design of Czapek pocket watch No 3430 dating back to the 1850s.
