The Russian Magician is turning 10! (Not really – he’s young – but he’s not that young!) October 23, 2013 marks 10 years to the day Konstanin Chaykin began work on his first clock. Now, one lucky winner can receive a personal gift from Konstantin Chaykin: a lucky horseshoe!
Konstantin Chaykin is a very, very humble person. He would NEVER boast about his skill or creativity. He’s also not the type of person to make a big fuss about celebrating 10 years in the industry. So I will do it for him!
He has stunned the watch world with creating after creation – from the Lunokhod, to the Quartime, to 2012’s Levitas each new watch has been more intricate than the last. His two latest creations have been fighting for the spot-light: The Muybridge Cinema watch stunned the watch world and seemed to grab all the attention at his booth at Baselworld! Now it’s time for the Levitas Jazz to shine!
The Levitas Jazz is dedicated to that great, musical tradition which takes seemingly dissonant sounds and turn them into a sonic conversation. The Levitas Jazz is a massive 61mm multi-toned gold creation that takes the Levitas ‘Mystery’ movement and surrounds it with a stream of musical references. The overall visual impact is not unlike jazz music itself; taken as a whole, there is a pleasing esthetic to the overall look. When you hone in on the detail and depth of the design any one separate theme or reference can capture your imagination.
The contest: During 1 week from now – until 30 October 2013 – you have to name all of the musical instruments and other musical attributes hidden in Levitas Jazz. The first person who will list all the elements will win the prize – a special horseshoe for good luck.Visit Konstantin’s Facebook page for rules and how to enter: www.facebook.com/ChaykinWatch
