Lot Essay

Konstantin Chaykin is creating Martian watchmaking art. The Martian Tourbillon Only Watch 2021 is the first tourbillon in the world to tick in sync with the rotation of Mars.

Konstantin Chaykin presents the Martian Tourbillon Only Watch 2021 Piece Unique, the first wristwatch from the Russian creator to have a tourbillon, and the world’s first Martian tourbillon, making a revolution every 61.65 seconds – the duration of one Mars minute – partially reducing the effects of Mars’ gravity.

The hand-wound Calibre K.22-0 has been developed from scratch. At its heart is a Martian tourbillon with an “alpha” carriage, as used in all of Konstantin Chaykin’s tourbillons. For this watch, Konstantin Chaykin created a unique skeletonised dial with Joker-indication, the face of the Joker-Martian, with the world’s first Martian calendar device, working based on the algorithms of Thomas Gangale’s calendar system.

The trademark smile of this new Wristmon is used as a representation of the Martian month, consisting of 28 sols, with the sol numeral markers made with symbols of the Martian numbering system that Konstantin Chaykin invented specially for this watch.
