The competitive horological world heartily welcomes the new Hijra men’s watch
- an amazing creation from the Russian watchmaker Konstantin Chaykin
A member of the prestigious Academy of Independent Watchmakers (AHCI), this master has made his name with exceptional models, equipped with various calendar systems.
They include an astronomical table clock with perpetual calendar and Orthodox Easter date indicator
as well as a table clock with retrograde indicator of the Muslim calendar dates
At Baselworld 2011, the Russian timepiece manufacture Konstantin Chaykin
was proud to unveil its new Lunokhod watch
. Meaning “Moonwalker”, when translated from Russian, it pays tribute to the Russian unmanned space programme in charge of sending up robotic lunar rovers. The latter were scheduled for landing on the Moon between 1969
The main asset of the new Konstantin Chaykin watch is an impressive interpretation of the Moon
, skillfully placed in the center of its face. The Moon is 12mm sized and boasts a relief of the lunar surface. The image of the magnificent celestial body is fitted with a silver hemispherical cover. Rotating over the surface, it acts as the Moon’s shadow and indicates moons-phases.
The time on the surface of the new Konstantin Chaykin Lunokhod watch
is told in a 24-hour format by means of one of two small hands (half-moon or sun-shaped), gliding over a 24-hour scale. Bellow the moon-phase indicator the user can see a seconds counter.
