KONSTANTIN CHAYKIN - JOKER
Konstantin Chaykin is THE Watchmaker from Russia. Very well known amongst « the independents » (member of the AHCI) he launched The JOKER at Baselworld 2016.
Here you have a demonstration of Creativity! The hour on the left, The minutes on the right and a Moonphase at 6 o’clock. The magic thing is that the dial changes constantly like the time. To deliver a full experience, its overall aesthetic is also crucial: The dial motives, the different colours applied and balanced elements such as the crowns or the screws.
Besides the mechanical movement K07-0 requires a lot of work. An in-house module completes a solid base offering an easy time setting (thanks to the two crowns) and 38 hours of power reserve (self winding).
The purple backside of the straps makes me think that Mr. CHAYKIN was inspired by the 1989 BATMAN movie and i hope so because it’s the best one. Anyhow, it’s great to see that a long/deep reflection ends up with something Fun!
Congratulations! KONSTANTIN CHAYKIN.
The JOKER is part of my top 3 timepieces with modules.
