Konstantin Chaykin Joker watch

Konstantin Chaykin Joker

Batman watches are all the rage with the impressive looking Romain Jerome Batman watch featuring the bat signal on the dial, the awesome looking Rebellion T-1000 Gotham as well as the futuristic Romain Jerome Spacecraft Batman watch.

Now Russian watchmaker Konstantin Chaykin has come out with another unique creation: the Konstantin Chaykin Joker watch. Another highly unusual watch from the creator of such watches as the Lunokhod watch and Cinema watch to be unveiled at Baselworld 2017 .

The regulateur type dial has been cleverly designed to resemble the jokers face, and features two disks which represent the eyes with the pupils  indicating the hours and minutes, whilst  a ‘mouth’ displays a moon phase indicator, with the moon implying a tongue. As the time and moonphase changes so does the jokers expression.

Making up the overall impression are two crowns at the 9 and 3 o’clock positions which suggest ears. The crown at the 3 o’clock position is used for winding whilst the one at 9 is fixed but features a pusher used to adjust the moonphase function.

Two traditional watch-making guilloche patterns add to the whimsical appearance of the dial, the ruthenium-plated nose features a hobnail pattern and the silver-plated dial a radial motif.

The movement for the Konstantin Chaykin Joker watch  consists of a module built by Chaykin himself and made up from 61 parts it sits on the sturdy ETA 2824 base automatic movement with a 38 hour power reserve.

Housed inside a 42mm wide and 13.7mm high stainless steel case, the Konstantin Chaykin Joker watch is a limited edition of 99 pieces with a retail price of €6990 available from Konstantin Chaykin
