All things said and done, the watch that put Chaykin on the world map, has been without any doubt the Joker watch. A fun, handbuilt watch with a personality matched by no other watch out there. With seemingly no equals in the watch world and no competitors in this segment, Chaykin decided to challenge himself and treat us to a new twist on the Joker. World, meet Santa!
At first glance, a mere cosmetic update. But not quite. “Whereas in the standard movement (caliber K.07-0) the convex discs of the hour and minute indicators were installed above the moonphase indicator disc, in the new caliber K.07-2 all three discs are in one line. Konstantin used shorter axles for the hour and minute indicators while also increasing the radius of the sphere (these discs always having a spherical surface)”.
The Wristmons’ eyes have slightly decreased in size, visually compensated for by the sapphire lenses, as has the diameter of the lunar disc. As q result the face-like dial had to be redesigned.
Excellent detail has been the updated Santa strap. No longer the business casual Tie strap paired with the Joker, but rather a full blown Santa inspired creation.
