The Joker watch, which spawned the Wristmons collection, was created by Konstantin Chaykin in 2017. The original limited edition of 99 pieces immediately sold out during the Baselworld exhibition, where the watch was presented to the public, and caused a sensation. The self-winding movement K.07-0, developed for the Joker wristwatch on the base of the Swiss-made Eta 2824-2 movement, modified by Chaykin, was fitted with an in-house complicated indication module.

The characteristic feature of the Joker watch and its calibre is its unique design, with an anthropomorphic Joker-indication with disc indicators for the hours, minutes and moon phase. The hour and minute subdials look like the character’s eyes, while the moonphase indicator resembles his smiling mouth – the lunar smile of the Joker watch.

Compared to the original stainless-steel Joker, the Joker XXX Unique Piece has an even more imposing high-contrast look thanks to the black PVD-coated case, violet leather strap, red lunar smile and, for the first time ever in a Wristmons watch – black eyes.

The Joker’s eyes look like car dashboard gauges, in high-contrast, with a matt black background and pad-printed red hands. Therefore, the unique piece created by Konstantin Chaykin combines the colour-scheme of an NFT artwork featuring the Joker’s car drifting through a late-night Gotham City, created for Ineichen Auctioneers’ April 2022 timed auction, with the Joker’s original dial design from the Wristmons collection, which has become the signature of the watchmaker.

Hi Guys. My name is Alexander Markovsky. I am a car photographer, porsche collector and restorer. I’m making an NFT art on the basis of the retro porsche 911 that I restored and tuned, and want to sell it at the auction. This is a the first project like that and is very exciting. Top press is coming to the event too! The idea: I’m working with a Swiss auction house @ineichenzurich to hold a sale of the NFT art with my porsche depicted in it – the buyer gets the NFT, the car and a unique luxury watch, all in one style! The event will happen on April 30th.

A special feature of the present example is the caseback designed with a medallion featuring the NFT-art image with the Joker’s car drifting through Gotham City engraved in relief and signed “Joker XXX”, “Unique Piece” and “Konstantin Chaykin Made in Russia Stainless Steel”. Made in stainless steel with black PVD-coating, the watch inherits the outstanding Joker design, one of the most noticeable and memorable watch designs in the world, this time in a one-of-a-kind creation.
