Konstantin Chaykin awarded the "Distinguished Inventor of Russia"

On November 17, 2022, Konstantin Chaykin was awarded the "Distinguished Inventor of Russian Federation" title – the official certificate, recognizing the master's long and successful career as an inventor was signed by the president Vladimir Putin.

In 2012, the president of Russia reinstated the "Distinguished Inventor of Russian Federation" award, initially established by the Presidium of the Supreme Soviet of RSFSR on April 20, 1961. The award was meant to encourage the development of the industry in the country and to modernize the economy.
Many scientists, engineers, experimenters who have contributed significantly to the development of both Russian and global science, were given this award. And now Konstantin Chaykin officially joins them.

Konstantin Chaykin has 92 registered patents, more than any other watchmaker in the world. His innovations have already earned him a WIPO Medal for Inventors, recognizing the most prolific and successful inventors in the world. Among his accomplishment are the first clock and the first watch with tourbillon made in Russia, the first Computus clock showing the dates of Orthodox Easter, in the world, a patented movement for indicating both hours and minutes with one hand, and the first watch with a Martian calendar.

And this is just a small part of Konstantin Chaykin's accomplishments. Among his recent works is the watch developed for use on the International Space Station. These new models were given, in 2021 and 2022, to cosmonauts Oleg Novitsky and Oleg Artemyev, who tested them both aboard the ISS and during spacewalks.

In October 2022 Konstantin Chaykin was inducted into the Temporis Hall of Fame, a sign of international recognition of his inventions. Now his status is also confirmed on the national level by the "Distinguished Inventor of the Russian Federation" title.
