An accidental scaling up of the trapezoidal dial elements by 50 percent quickly ended the design debate within the company, and the enlarged pattern has finally made its way to its intended home. Czapek & Cie calls this stamped pattern the “Stairway to Eternity” texture, and the lofty name emphasizes the sheer verticality of this texture. The peaks of each trapezoidal scale seem to reach up out of the dial in initial images, contrasted with equally deep troughs in between. While the angular, futuristic lumed alpha hands and pointed applied indices are carried over from the first Antarctique, the other major change comes with a new applied Arabic numeral at 12 o’clock. With a slender, slightly rounded font, this contrasts heavily with the sharply angled elements throughout the rest of the dial, and will likely become a “love it or hate it” element. It certainly adds a touch of character to the dials in initial images, disrupting the pared-back futurism with a deliberate softer twist. The other dial addition is the new applied outer minutes track, which not only (https://longthanhtourist.com/serial-code/?file=2911) sits above the level of the main dial but features polished applied markers for each minute along with an eye-catching applied red triangle above 12 o’clock. Czapek & Cie offers the Antarctique Passage de Drake (straight from the source) in four cleanly reserved dial colors, including Ice White, classic Black Ink, a cool desaturated Deep Blue, and the limited edition (official statement) Roaring Forties dial. The Roaring Forties is a medium slate gray tone, forming a solid midpoint between white and black.
