More than a timepiece

watch with hourglass on the dial

Artists have depicted clocks in legendary paintings as they tried to understand the meaning of life. Konstantin Chaykin, the Russian inventor and founder of the Konstantin Chaykin Manufacture designed a watch that is more than a timepiece – but a piece of art.  Konstantin’s watch Carpe Diem (Latin for Seize the Day) and included multiple allegoric representations of time in the mechanics and the design to create a harmonious reminder of how important the present is and how fleeting time really is for each and every one of us.
