It all began 10 years ago with the tourbillon clock Konstantin Chaykin built, which included a titanium cage of his own design. Today the Manufacture produces several collections of tourbillon clocks with various religious calendars and unusual time-telling methodologies. Konstantin Chaykin is also fascinated by other mechanical possibilities in watches and clocks: in 2013 he designed the Cinema Watch, which contains the first mechanical animation every built into a watch.

Konstantin is relatively young for a world famous master watchmaker – he is 37 this year. He is full of energy and endless new ideas. Like a true time keeper he manages to fit more into 24 hours than it seems a person could; organizing and managing an innovative production system, inventing new complications and movements, building prototypes, travelling to many international shows and doing continuous self-education. Moreover, Konstantin is dedicated to his family and kids and manages multiple personal hobbies including mountain climbing, motorcycle riding, painting and writing.

Konstantin Chaykin is going forward. He plans to realize as many ideas as possible, grew up successors and recover the trust to Russian watch making.
