Russian watchmaker Konstantin Chaykin has created a collection of watches inspired by the upcoming football World Cup, which will be held in Russia this summer.
A new addition to the collection of Konstantin Chaykin’s Wristmons, Joker Soccer is a real fan. In his round, moving eyes-indicators, a soccer ball is reflected; it also replaces the moon in the moon phase indicator.
The Joker’s football eyes rotate thanks to a patented indication module. The watch case is made of bronze. The rim of the case is decorated with the letters of the name of a new member of the Joker’s family – Soccer.
The dial of the watch is covered with colored varnish and decorated in the guilloche technique. The alligator strap has white stitching which resembles a football net.
The traditional quality of the manufactory is reflected in the high level of finishing the module’s details. The plate is polished and covered with rhodium, the bevels of plate, the wheel bridge, the levers and the lunar disk are polished, the surfaces of the parts and the bridge wheel of the disk indicators are finished with longitudinal grinding. The circular grinding is made on the disk of the moon phase indicator and the wheels.
The Konstantin Chaykin Joker Soccer watch will be released in 11 copies only, according to the number of players in the team.
