Return to the classics
The brand-new Arrows of Time table clock by Konstantin Chaykin revive the old idea of a classic combination of traditional complicated devices - a perpetual calendar and a tourbillon. The development was based on the basic caliber T.01-0 of the Tourbillon 55 table clock, the prototype of which was developed by Chaykin in 2007 for his second Orthodox Easter piece, or the Ressurection Computus Clock. At that time, Konstantin Chaykin implemented the fundamental principles of all his subsequent tourbillon calibers into the Orthodox Easter clock movement, including the linear arrangement of the main gear wheels' axis, the use of ball bearings, and the original design of the alpha tourbillon cage. Since then, the trademark “alpha” cage has become a crucial feature of all tourbillons created by Konstantin Chaykin, including table tourbillons, and even the unique the Martian Tourbillon Only Watch 2021 Piece Unique.
The idea to give the new clock the name "Arrows of Time" came to Konstantin Chaykin at the very moment when he decided to provide all nine indicators on the dial with hands of one design. Although the traditions of watchmaking do not prohibit this particular choice, watchmakers rarely equip the dial with a complicated set of hands made in an identical style. In Russian, the words “watch hand” and “arrow” are of the same origin, so the master decided to emphasize this fact using his design genius: the “shaft” of each hand is made of blue-steel, the faceted tip is made of steel decorated with fine longitudinal polishing. Of course, the finishing of each hand is performed manually, as well as the finishing of all other elements. . The clock is offered in an Art Deco style case, which is decorated with panels made of the walnut tree.
