KONSTANTIN CHAYKIN - CINEMA
ON ONE HAND SOME POPCORN. ON THE OTHER, A "MOVIE" TIMEPIECE !
Part of the famous AHCI, KONSTANTIN CHAYKIN (Russian watchmaker) patented an amazing mechanical complication, The Cinema. Launched in 2013, the timepiece is a tribute to the American photographer & inventor Eadweard Muybridge.
The crown located on the left side of the white gold case winds the animation. Fully winded, a sequence of 20 seconds is offered. So when you push the button, a quick frame by frame animation comes to life!!! The creation shows a galloping horse and its rider. However other animations are available on demand.
The crown located on the right side, does its standard role and let you set the time quite easily. We also like the open back because the caliber KCM 01-0 is beautiful aesthetically.
With a thickness of 12,2 mm, the Cinema timepiece is quite comfortable on the wrist.
The timepiece offers Innovation, Tradition + a Russian touch/culture so do we need to say something else ?
Congratulations! KONSTANTIN CHAYKIN.
