Mars Conqueror Mk3 Fighter

Konstantin Chaykin 2020

Men's

In 2017 Konstantin Chaykin embarked on his very own "Mars Time" programme. This led to the Mars Conqueror Mk1 prototype whose nine complications included a number of astronomical functions based on the Martian time and calendar. Chaykin has now unveiled the Mars Conqueror Mk3 Fighter, a blend of military and futuristic design made with the prospect of human colonisation of Mars in mind. All functions - manual winding of the movement, setting of local (Earth) time, and setting the second time zone indication (UTC) and the Martian time indication (MCT) - are controlled by the two vertically mounted crowns, with a function indicator for ease of use. Hours, minutes and seconds on Earth are shown by central hands. At 12 o'Clock, a subdial indicates the second time zone over 24 hours. In the subdial at 6 o'clock, a patented module, developed by Konstantin Chaykin and comprising 125 parts, indicates hours and minutes of Martian time.
