The world of Haute Horlogere is a calm and steady world full of rules, conventionalities and age-old traditions. European watch brands with glorious centuries behind are traditionally competing with each other in watch workmanship quality and technical complexity. In Russia, manufacture of elite watch was fully in decline for a long time. However, a hope of a dramatic change in a long-established situation has arisen. Now, the history of the Russian watch industry is written by today’s masters, who acquire by hardworking and commitment knowledge and experience in manufacturing mechanical works of art. We have neither watch-making schools nor a “Swiss Made” brand, but we have persistency, ingenuity, intuitive sense of beautiful and indomitable will to win, known to the entire world.
Among few companies representing the today’s Russian watch-making industry the absolute leader in the luxury segment is Konstantin Chaykin Manufacture. The history of the brand begins from the brand founder. 10 years ago a young master, armed with books and drawings, manufactured with his own hands the first Russian table clock with unsecured turbillon. That event marked revival of watch-making trade in Russia. Konstantin Chaykin’s enterprise was growing at a breathtaking pace. Recognized in the global watch-making community, he has become the first and so far the only Russian watchmaker admitted to a prestigious organization of independent watchmakers Academie Horlogere Des Créateurs Indépendants.
Each year, Konstantin Chaykin Manufacture shows higher rate of growth. The manufacturing process is equipped with the most advanced equipment, the model line is extending, and new inventions are patented. And, which is the most important, Russian watchmakers’ experience and mastership is growing. New knowledge and skills are acquired, which may be then transferred to descendants. Like careful builders, the pioneers of the Russian watch-making industry diligently lay a foundation for future generations of Russian watchmakers. The products of the manufacture represent a diverse nature and history of our Motherland. Collections of watch with religious themes - Orthodox, Muslim and Judaic – reflect a multi-ethnicity of the Russian state. Lunokhod watch models remind of the achievements of the Soviet cosmonautics. Transparent Levitas symbolize undiscovered secrets of the Russian soul elegized by poets. And the most topical ones are the Quartime models, helping residents of heavily populated Russian megalopolices, who are always in a hurry, to distinguish evening from night and morning from day.
Revival of the Russian watch-making industry remains the main purpose of Konstantin Chaykin, the founder of the manufacture. The master treats reverently the history of our state and has even written a book of his predecessors – great watch-makers of the Russian past. But the manufacture not only revives traditions but also creates new trends, taking the Russian watch-making art to a new level and creating watch models that may be a source of pride. “It’s Russian Time”, says a watch model to those in doubt in a language understandable by the entire world. The Russia’s time comes and it will be kept by Russian watch.
