Official description

Collaboration, openness and creative thinking are at the heart of Czapek’s creative process. The idea of making a timepiece combining the vivid colors of the Only Watch 2021 edition – yellow, orange and red – and the latest mechanical innovation in the Antarctique line, the unique open-work dial side split-second chronograph, came to life step by step. The mechanism concept, a project initiated by Czapek, is the result of a long-term fruitful partnership with Chronode. For the first time, the ballet of cams, levers and wheels of the split-second mechanism has been positioned on the dial side, a unique feast for the eyes of watch aficionados. The timepiece’s esthetic concept, for its part, took shape after exchanging with Czapek’s manufacturing partners Positive Coating, the CVD “NanoDeCo” technology experts in La Chaux de Fonds. And then the whole design game started, with a vision: creating something crazy… and edible at the same time: the Antarctique Rattrapante “Sunrise”, a new dawn for the brand, aiming to help find a new dawn in the research on Duchenne muscular dystrophy.
