«Our native land is vast – this we know from early childhood. And immense. And filled with good and wonderful things – forests, rivers, fields, many time zones…and it is these time zones that we at the Konstantin Chaykin Manufacture put at the heart of our new watch, the Russian Time Watch, reveals Konstantin Chaykin, the well-known master watchmaker and Head of the Manufacture. Moscow, Chelyabinsk, Norilsk, Yakutsk, Chersky, Samara, Kaliningrad, Novosibirsk, Irkutsk, Anadyr, and Vladivostok. Russia’s eleven time zones are named after these cities, and so are the time zones depicted on the Russian Time Watch.

Miki Eleta’s Timeburner Uhr zu Ehren der frühen Verbrennungsmotoren

Miki Eleta’s erster kinetischer Zeitmesser für das Handgelenk, die Timeburner, wurde auf der Baselword 2015 erstmalig vorgestellt; limitiert auf 99 Stück pro Farbvariante.

Es ist eine Hommage an die ersten Verbrennungsmotoren mit all dem Lärm, Öl, und Chrom, die damit eingegangen sind. Der Aluminium Kolben ersetzt dabei den klassischen Minuten-Zeiger, um die Zeit anzuzeigen. Sie wird durch ein mechanisches Uhrwerk angetrieben und wird aufgezogen wenn der Träger die “Zündkerze”, die Krone, dreht.
