If a CTK can be called classic this is this one – The CTK03 is pure, elegant and simply gorgeous. The Chinese Timekeeper, Date Automatic might only be seen in a select number of boardrooms in town, but it will definitely not go unnoticed.
The dial offers a visual impact that is strong yet subtle with the presence in shiny red of the Chinese character ‘十’. Together with the Timekeeper logo — emblem of the original Keepers of Time in the bright days of the Song Dynasty, shining on the dial at 12 o’clock — the number ten highlights the Chinese origins of this timepiece while retaining a sleek, contemporary look. The effect is even more striking since the dial is a rare, circular finished silver with not a single marking. The Chinese Timekeeper is proud of its unique inner ring bearing our eponymous etching, once again reflecting our glorious Chinese Heritage.
This Limited Edition comes in only 18 pieces that have been carefully manufactured by the finest Chinese watchmakers. The gray calf-leather straps with gray stitching might be the deciding factor for those in search of a perfect wristwatch to match their Mandarin-collar suits.
It seems that it won’t be long before the CTK03 will be called a classic in the world of contemporary timepieces.
