Russian master watchmaker Konstantin Chaykin dedicates his new horology art piece to women. The Diana Watch, the latest ladies wristwatch from the world famous Russian watch manufactory is equipped with a novel moon phase indicator.
Konstantin Chaykin is already famous for his unique mechanical complications, and in the Diana Watch he has created a new masterpiece exclusively for women. Gold and diamonds, beloved by women everywhere, are merely decorations for a show based on a new complicated mechanism. The central invention is an original method to keep track of the mysterious Moon.
The Diana Watch is named after the ancient Mediterranean goddess Diana, known also as Artemis. This beloved daughter of Jupiter embodied the Moon for the ancient Romans. Every evening she enters her chariot and milk white stallions drive her across the sky. And the stars, the heavenly diamonds looked after their goddess and lit her way. Diana – the lovely and virginal huntress; was nevertheless the goddess of women and fecundity. It was to Diana that women prayed during childbirth. The fierce women-warriors of the Amazon tribe worshipped Diana as the ideal they strove for.
Today’s Amazons wear business suits instead of togas. They prefer serious, complicated mechanisms in precious cases to sweet baubles. Serious exclusive watches, like the Diana Watch with its patented moon phase indicator.
The Konstantin Chaykin Manufacture places great emphasis on the design and finish of every detail in the case and the movement. The Diana Watch includes a new and unique proprietary caliber with a hand-wound movement containing carefully polished details. The plates of the movement are decorated with Côtes de Genève. Gold screws securely hold 17 ruby bearings. The wheels and gears are gilded; the drum wheel and winding drum are polished ideally. The clear sapphire glass back of the case lets one to see the heart of the Diana Watch – the balance.
