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 is going to be next minute. Chaykin has adventured creation of a new fine movement spirit that is protean, ever spectacular and provocative.
A two-disk current time display module with the Joker’s eyes as hours and minutes, and a moon phase indicator being the Joker's best smile were designed exclusively for the Joker watch. Reliable, time proven automatic ETA caliber is embedded with a friction reducing eight-stone module, while the case has a second winder 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 the Fate itself and triumph.
