The Mouse King

While the world of haute horlogerie is filled with unique and dramatic designs, few brands are as creative or playful as Konstantin Chaykin. Most famous for its series of pareidolia-focused watches with literal faces such as the Joker, the brand consistently maintains a lighthearted tone to its exploration of ultra-luxury boutique watchmaking. For its latest limited edition release, Konstantin Chaykin takes this train of thought even further, offering a unique timepiece with not just a face, but ears as well, and a bejeweled gold royal crown at 12 o’clock to complete the look. Inspired by the villainous character from the classic Tchaikovsky ballet “The Nutcracker,” the limited edition Konstantin Chaykin Mouse King might be an unusual release outside of the Christmas season, but the creativity and craftsmanship on display is undeniably impressive.

The Konstantin Chaykin designs are - to put it mildly - absolutely fucking horrible. This? This isn't just absolutely fucking horrible, it's that plus vomit-inducing grotesque.

That watch is clearly exceptionally well made.

I wouldn't touch it if it was $50 with a free carton of Luckys.
WatchGeeks will go down in watch forum history as the worst watch related site that existed. Trolls, threats, bannings, and owners and sponsors talking out of their collective asses to fleece people out of hard earned money. - Koimaster

Growing up I had a Dentist named Dr. Chaykin so I have a bad taste in my mouth for a watch named that.
