The Chinese Timekeeper – Chinese Double Hour Automatic, is going to set itself a warm place in the precious timepieces books.
Would it be because for the first time a watch is truly reflecting on the original Chinese way of representing the time? Or would it be because its 24 hours movement hidden under the most elegant of dials read respectfully the time from the hour of the Ox to the hour the Pig?
On a CTK15 a day starts at 11pm with for first marker our emblematic signature keeping the time for the first double hour until 1am. The Chinese character for the Ox follows. Although the watch offers a perfect legibility due to its 2 tones navy blue dial, the complexity of the reading may look, to the less acquainted wearer, like a Chinese puzzle.
However, true seekers of rare pieces will definitely find in this timepiece a terrific buy! That is if all 28 pieces have not been first purchased by Chinese culture lovers …
