The Chinese Timekeeper, Small Second Automatic has not been created to be worn by just anyone. Boasting strong contrast and aggressive lines CTK05 bestrides the crossroads of modernity and tradition, on a path from the best of the West to the very finest of the East.
This piece is proudly crafted in China. Its case structure is highly technical and has been created to perfection. The four distinctive rings of stainless steel and black PVD form a duo that we already love and immediately recalls the Chinese pagoda that is its inspiration. Four prominent structural screws — ensuring water resistance of 50m — are deliciously controversial, treading a thin line between roughness and modernity, made sleekly stunning by their protective PVD tubes.
Proudly displaying its Chinese roots, the unique small second dial features numerous traditional characteristics. Indeed its 5 o’clock position offers a twist that watch collectors and amateurs alike have been waiting for. But it is the numerals in Traditional Chinese that truly underline the uniqueness and rarity of The Chinese Timekeeper.
Again, this is not a watch for everyone — and only 28 enterprising gentlemen will be able to carry a CTK05 in the manner it deserves…
