Lot Essay

While watchmaking tends to feature a thoughtful and straight face, Chaykin proposes an unconventional approach of recreating watches as kinetic pop art pieces. The Joker watch is emotionally faced and you never know what face it is going to be in the next minute. Chaykin has adventured creation of a new fine movement spirit that is protean, ever spectacular and provocative.

A two-disk current time module displays with the Joker’s eyes as hours and minutes, and a moon phase indicator as the Joker’s best smile were designed exclusively for the Joker watch. A reliable, time proven automatic ETA caliber is embedded with a friction reducing eight-stone module, while the case has a second crown for adjusting the moon phase.

The Joker is the card capable to change the game course. It comes out to beat any other card, creates incredible combinations and provokes spectacular moves. It is a synonym for good luck, a forerunner of a dazzling adventure and a hint implying risk playing with fate itself and triumph.
