Keeping Time Episode S3 E5
Czapek & Cie – Xavier de Roquemaurel

Joining us for a rare “in studio” episode we welcome back Xavier De Roquemaurel, the spirited CEO of Czapek & Cie,  as well as our dear friend, Michael Margolis, US Agent for Czapek. Listen in on a great conversation as we discuss all that has happened since our first podcast with Xavier including the success of the brand as well as the challenges faced in growing a newer company today. We chat with Michael about what drew him to wishing to work with a newer brand with no history in the USA. We hope you enjoy this insightful and honest conversation.

The story of Czapek & Cie is extraordinary: One of the most famous watchmaking names in history has been revived by a small group of passionate entrepreneurial watchmakers and collectors/enthusiasts/investors.

With the incredibly short history of the modern brand, the fact that they have introduced 3 distinct collections is extremely impressive. Add to this achievement the superb Tourbillon GMT and it is no wonder that serious collectors are taking note. Chatting with Xavier brings to life the inspiration, partnerships and even some of the technical secrets that go into creating the distinctive dials, cases and movements that carry the famous Czapek & Cie name. It was a great pleasure chatting with Xavier and discovering the interesting choices made by the Czapek team and discovering that, like all great art, every piece crafted holds secrets and discoveries.
