It requires eleven time zones to cover the vast area of Russia from Moscow to Kamchatka and from the Arctic Sea to the Caucuses. These time zones represent 11 Russian cities that are Moscow, Chelyabinsk, Norilsk, Yakutsk, Chersky, Samara, Kaliningrad, Novosibirsk, Irkutsk, Anadyr, and Vladivostok. The world renowned master watch maker Konstantin Chaykin, the creative head of the watch brand named after him brings all these time zones to a single wristwatch: the Russian Time.
The unique design of the Russian Time Watch is focused on showing the time in all eleven time zones in Russia. At the top of the dial, between IX and III, we listed all of the eleven cities used to identify the time zones. Each city name is connected with a line to the hour indicator located directly below the list of cities.
The Russian Time Watch is available in a limited edition and comes in a steel case 44 mm in diameter, complete with a proprietary hand wound movement with a 48 hour power reserve. The watch comes with a black leather band with a buckle closure. The movement contains a patented complication which allows all eleven Russian time zones to be shown in the indicator apertures. The glorious caliber, created to the highest watchmaking standards can be seen through clear case back.
Konstantin Chaykin was inspired to create the Russian Time Watch after a visit to the Peterhof Palace, where he saw the Ivan Yurin clock. This clock has an enormous fretwork dial encrusted with numerous small dials. Each of these has a name of a city in the Russian Empire on it and each dial tells time according to the pre-revolutionary system of time zones. This antique clock reflects a bygone era of Russian history. Many cities have new names and some are no longer part of Russia, such as Novo-Arkhangelsk in Alaska (now New Archangel). The very division into time zones has changed. In his new Russian Time Watch, Konstantin Chaykin has immortalized the Russia of today.
