  • Catalogue Essay

    Konstantin Chaykin is a master inventor and maker of high-end wristwatches sold under the name “Konstantin Chaykin Manufacture”. His timepieces are works of art combining technical movements with artistic expression. He has been acknowledged by the international watch community, and recognised for his proprietary calibers, and role in the luxury market with unique and masterful timepieces. Chaykin has over 80 patents for his movements and inventions and is a member of the prestigious Académie Horlogère des Créateurs Indépendants.

    Konstantin Chaykins’ innovations are known by the community for mechanical marvels with whimsical designs like the “Joker”, a two-disc time module with the “Jokers” eyes as hour and minute indicators, and moon phase aperture as a smile. In 2017, he designed a one of a kind “Joker” Pumpkin Head in stainless steel and bronze. The rounded eyes were replaced by triangular ones, while the “smile” of the “Joker” now more sinister, and with an overall feel of a Jack-o’-Lantern. In 2020, Chaykin issued a limited edition of 88 timepieces known as the “Green Halloween”, with inspiration taken from Washington Irving’s The Legend of Sleepy Hallow.

    The green guilloché dial ranges from light to dark tones, and is a symbol to ward off evil spirits, while the case is in stainless steel and bronze, which should obtain a nice patina as the years pass by.

    The present model, number 19, is in excellent condition, and complete with its original accessories. This is a rare opportunity to own one of these hardly ever seen timepieces, which sold out soon after they were offered in the market.
