Follow the White Rabbit...

When suddenly a White Rabbit with pink eyes ran close by her. There was nothing so very remarkable in that; nor did Alice think it so very much out of the way to hear the Rabbit say to itself, “Oh dear! Oh dear! I shall be late!..”
But when the Rabbit actually took a watch out of its waistcoat-pocket, and looked at it, and then hurried on, Alice started to her feet, for it flashed across her mind that she had never before seen a rabbit with either a waistcoat-pocket, or a watch to take out of it, and burning with curiosity, she ran across the field after it, and fortunately was just in time to see it pop down a large rabbit-hole under the hedge.


That's how Alice's adventure in Wonderland started. The text itself, one of the most well-known and cited in the world, has been inspiring artists for more than 150 years. The white rabbit became one of the symbols for crossing the line into the unexpected, of searching for new meanings and dismantling canons.

Now it's time to embody this image in watchmaking. And Konstantin Chaykin's "White Rabbit" will annihilate any stereotypical expectations about what a watch should be.

Picture

The development of the concept has already begun. Here you can see the first sketches of the upcoming watch. Join us on the journey of creating a watch, from the initial idea to the finished piece of Haute Horlogerie.

  • Double-faced TRANSFORMER WATCH

    Alice replied, rather shyly, “I – I hardly know, sir, just at present – at least I know who I was when I got up this morning, but I think I must have been changed several times since then".

    The watch will be double-faced. On the reverse side will be a perpetual calendar and other astronomical complications.

    This is the first Konstantin Chaykin watch that can be worn as a pendant, a pocket watch, or a wristwatch.

  • 4 UNIQUE PIECES

    The King and Queen of Hearts were seated on their throne when they arrived, with a great crowd assembled about them – all sorts of little birds and beasts, as well as the whole pack of cards...

    Only 4 of these watches will be made, each marked with a card suit symbol on the back side, thus making each one of them unique.

  • ASTRONOMICAL COMPLICATIONS

    Alice had been looking over his shoulder with some curiosity. “What a funny watch!” she remarked. “It tells the day of the month, and doesn’t tell what o’clock it is!”
    “Why should it?” muttered the Hatter. “Does your watch tell you what year it is?”


    The back of the watch will feature a perpetual calendar, the time of sunrise and sunset, the length of the day and night. The front dial will have the classic Joker-indication of hours and minutes, the moonphase indicator, and the rabbit's "nose" will serve as an AM/PM indicator.

  • TIME IN WONDERLAND

    “And ever since that,” the Hatter went on in a mournful tone, “he won’t do a thing I ask! It’s always six o’clock now.”
    A bright idea came into Alice’s head. “Is that the reason so many tea-things are put out here?” she asked.
    “Yes, that’s it,” said the Hatter with a sigh: “it’s always tea-time, and we’ve no time to wash the things between whiles.”


    Another function is being developed; a unique invention designed especially for this model. All watches in Carrol's story shows the "wrong", fairy-tale time. The new watch will be equipped with a special function which invite you in time of Wonderland.

THE FIRST STAGE: THE DESIGN SKETCH

You can follow the entire process of creating the first sketches for the new watch. This is not just recording ideas on paper. This is how Konstantin Chaykin invents new functions, new complications, and design elements.

CASE AND MOVEMENT SPECIFICATIONS

The watch's 42 mm case will be made of titanium.

The pendant clasp will be attached to the rabbit's "ears". The piece would be wearable as a pendant or a pocket watch. The "ears" can be removed, together with the clasp, and changed for the wrist strap with ears as a design element.

The movement will be fully designed and produced by the "Konstantin Chaykin" manufacture specifically for this model.

This is currently one of the most complicated watches created by Konstantin Chaykin. The model will be double-faced and have at least 12 functions and complications:
– joker-indication of hours and minutes,
– moonphase indicator,
– AM/PM indicator,
– perpetual calendar, day, date, month, leap year,
– time of sunrise and sunset,
– day and night length,
"Wonderland Time" – a unique function.

Other functions may be added during the design process, but these functions, the material of the case and its size would remain unchanged.

The price of the watch will be 106 000£ (or 8 480 000₽). Payment is only possible in rubles.
Time for manufacture is from 12 months. Only four pieces will be made.
Information presented on this page is the first sketch concept. As work goes on, both the design and the specifications may be adjusted.
