Passage de Drake Afterglow

The SXH5.01 automatic caliber is the first to be entirely conceived in-house by Czapek from a blank page. Every part of it has been made with care to detail and with the help of the top Swiss manufacturing partners and craftsmen, la crème de la crème, the magnificent orchestra directed by Czapek in the We Collect Rare People spirit. The microrotor, is placed off-center to allow a plunging view into the mechanism and its exceptional architecture. A free-sprung balance wheel with variable inertia provided by four gold adjustable weights enables the highest level of precision tuning. The gear train is held in place by a series of seven handsome skeletonized bridges. Their original shape is reminiscent of lace, inspired on one side by XIX century pocket watches, and by the very modern Czapek Faubourg de Cracovie chronograph’s rotor. The movement has superlative finishing on the bridges that merges Haute Horlogerie angling techniques with state-ot-the-art laser engravings.


This watch has a diameter of 40.5 mm. The proportions of a watch are always very subjective, but we recommend this version if you have a wrist circumference greater than 16.5 cm. Don't hesitate to contact us or one of our retailers for more advice or simply trying it 'in the metal'!


Thanks to a micro-rotor in recycled 950 platinum, this timepiece can be wound by the movement of your wrist (or your winder if you regularly change your watch). Why a micro-rotor? To reveal all the beauty of the gear train, of course!


This watch is water-resistant to 120 meters (12 ATM). Thanks to its screw-down crown, you can safely swim in the pool or sea with it. But this is not a diving watch! We recommend that you wash it thoroughly in clear water afterwards to remove any sand, salt or chlorine!


Thanks to this simple and useful mechanism that stops the movement when the crown is fully pulled, the time of your watch can be synchronized to a time signal with to-the-second precision.


This model is a limited edition of 100 pieces only. Once reached, it won’t be orderable nor produced anymore! 


Every Czapek timepiece goes through rigorous quality controls and extensive testing. Therefore, all our watches sold through our official retail partners or directly come with a 3-year international product warranty.
