Order watches

Always elegant and fast, in a short tunic, with an invariable quiver of arrows, Diana was revered in ancient Rome as the goddess of hunting and the patroness of animals. And if her twin brother Apollo personified the Sun for the Romans, then the beautiful hunter was revered as the goddess of the Moon.

This division is deeply symbolic: according to the beliefs of ancient peoples, it was the Moon associated with femininity, and the Sun – with masculinity. The night luminary with its mysterious light and the ability to influence the ebb and flow of human life has fascinated people for a long time and caused curiosity in many nations. Therefore, the oldest of the calendars – lunar – was used by ancient Sumerians, Egyptians and Chinese as the basis for their chronology. And only 500 years ago the lunar calendar was superseded by the sunny – the Gregorian day we know today.

However, masters of watchmaking willingly equip women’s watches with the moon phases indicators nowadays, knowing that this is the most poetic and feminine complication in the watch!

Konstantin Chaykin looked at the watch with the lunar calendar in a different way – in the model “Diana” there is neither a starry sky nor the “chariot of the night” itself. Diana is an elegant allegory on the eternal theme, the solution of which lies at the intersection of the silver guilloche dial and the hand with the ring instead of the tip.
