  • Catalogue Essay

    Standing at the forefront of Russian watchmaking, Konstantin Chaykin is the first to became part of the Academy of Independent Watchmakers (AHCI) and claimed his debut Audacity award with his “Clown” creation at the Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève in 2018. Offering a completely new genre in haute horlogerie, Konstantin Chaykin’s invention dares to release the Jack-in-the-box to a whole new level. Provocative, unpredictable and extraordinary, these are certainly emotions that gets conjured for the present timepiece, the Clown II Audacity. Part of the Wristmons Monsters collection, the model pays homage to the first “Audacity” award for the Russian inventor.

    Most recognizable for its signature dancing-pupils indicating the hour and minutes, and the peculiar grin under the big red nose that displays a moon phase cleverly disguised as the tongue of the entertainer. Painted with a decoration of white guilloche spiralling out from the centre, the moonphase can be advanced with the pusher sitting adjacent to the crown. Produced in stainless steel with a 42m diameter case, the clown is dressed in a flamboyant costume in blue and red with yellow stitching as its strap. Much like the colour scheme of a circus tent, the caseback is also engraved with the house of the Clown.

    Revealing a part of the character of their owner, the model is made in 88 pieces only and captured collector’s heart. To collectors who are not afraid to be different, this is a must have statement timepiece. Presented for the first time at Phillips auction, the present timepiece is preserved in stunning overall condition and is accompanied with its full set of accessories.
