The Chinese Timekeeper, Small Second Automatic is striking to say the least! Boasting strong contrast with black & white lines, the CTK08 is at the crossway of modernity and tradition.
Its case structure is highly technical and has been created to perfection. The 4 distinctive rings of polished stainless steel and black PVD form a duo that we already love and that illustrate perfectly its Chinese pagoda inspiration. The four structural screws insuring a water resistance of 50m are deliciously controversial, a thin line from roughness and modernity made stunning by the protective tubes in polished stainless steel.
Proud of its Chinese roots, and for the amateurs of Oriental culture, the hands have a never seen before Chinese pattern! Again, this is a remarkable way to differentiate a CTK timepiece from its peer.
The CTK08 is an imposing watch with a strong character due to the sharpness of his features. However this piece still does not lose touch with its intrinsic elegance and simplicity.
