The original inspirations were rarely ever incorporated into wristwatches, so naturally, the main highlight of the Place Vendôme Complicité is its caliber. Through the openworked dial sapphire crystal exhibition caseback, the Bernhard Lederer-collaborated Caliber 8 can be observed. Located on the dial’s 4:30 and 7:30 marks are the two independent oscillators, both working in unison while beating at their own pace.
Boasting a case diameter of just under 42mm, the watch is offered in a Harmony Blue and a Stardust variation. The first comes in an 18k 5N rose gold case composition, with its Grainé main plate doused in a blue galvanic coating, complete with a matching alligator strap. Meanwhile, the Stardust comes attired in 18k white gold and black straps, with a dial that’s treated in a silver galvanic finish.
Priced at $100,000 USD, the first editions of the Place Vendôme Complicité will be released in a limited production of 50 units per colorway. To inquire about the Place Vendôme Complicité’s availability, visit Czapek’s official website for more information.
