Mars Conqueror Mk3 Fighter
The first Martian aviator watch in history
Spaceships capable to deliver humankind to Mars are still being developed, but the watches invented by Konstantin Chaykin for the conquerors of Mars are already ticking. He decided to make new “Mars Conqueror Mk3 Fighter” watch from titanium, traditionally perceived as an aircraft and space material. The hands of the dial provide a synchronized indication of Martian and terrestrial time. Konstantin Chaykin proposes that as a symbol of unity and a nostalgic affection to the home planet, the feelings mankind will maintain of the future, after the conquest of Mars, other planets and star systems.
Konstantin Chaykin had developed for “Mars Conqueror Mk3 Fighter” watch special module with a synchronized indication of the current time both on Mars and on Earth, including the indication of second time zone. The design and finish of the module were produced according to strict rules of High Watchmaking, despite it is hidden under the dial. Konstantin Chaykin provides meticulous finishing of every part of the module using classic techniques of traditional watchmaking: perlage, fine linear finish, circular graining, sandblasting, contour grinding, hand chamfering and polishing, engraving, polishing of screw heads and countersinks, spherical polishing of pivots, rhodium coating. The module has 8 jewels to reduce friction.

Aviator type with double vertical crown (invented by Konstantin Chaykin, Patent RU2518300); functional (winding) crown for winding and setting the time, crown switches between one of three modes of the functional crown – manual winding of the movement, setting the UTC time zone indicator (with a clockwise rotation) or setting MTC (with an anticlockwise rotation), and setting local Earth time.|
All development stages have been successfully completed, and Konstantin Chaykin is proud to present the first model of his “Mars Conqueror” collection available for orders. That is the first-ever Martian aviator watch. The “Mars Conqueror Mk3 Fighter” watch looks to the future, which is why one can find in its design the futuristic forms of the Martian space fleet as imagined and designed by Konstantin Chaykin. In the brutal yet at the same time ergonomic case of a dynamic, trapezoidal design, which is dominated by triangular edges, there is a bezel fixed to the case by 24 functional screws, resembling the mooring lock of a spacecraft docking system.
