Three sources and three components of Konstantin Chaykin’s watchmaking art
When starting a new project, and thinking what his latest timepiece should be, Konstantin Chaykin follows his creative principles: “When I start a new project, I am guided by my three creative principles – first, an idea is born, be it philosophical, technical or artistic, which captures all my thoughts. Then I come up with the design which will most completely and adequately express this idea. Finally, I construct a movement that brings everything to life.
“Every new watch is a huge amount of creative work. From my point of view, inspirations for new watches and projects are everywhere – in museums, books, films and even in conversations with friends. Something interesting can always come to your mind” – Konstantin Chaykin
