This is the Konstantin Chaykin Clown, an extremely eerie clock that was inspired by the character known as “IT” in the novels written by Stephen King. The Stephen King watch is both strange and interesting to look at at the same time. It comes with a price tag of $9,900, which indicates that it is not exactly inexpensive either.
Chaykin is an independent watchmaker who has given the watch industry a much-needed infusion of new life because he combines excellent engineering talents with a healthy dose of playful spirit. The majority of his watches are inspired by comic book and movie characters, as well as other pop culture celebrities like musicians and actors.
The layout that he employed for the Clown was also utilized for the Joker, the Jack-O’-Lantern, and even the watch worn by the Minions. The watch can be described as having a face. Sub-dials for the hours (on the left) and minutes (on the right) are located in the eyes of the watch (right).
By observing the direction that the pupil of the eye is facing, one can determine the time. Additionally, the “smile” is a moon phase complication that enables one to keep track of the face of the moon that is illuminated by the sun when viewed from Earth. The watch is driven by a Swiss movement that has been modified by Chaykin and has a power reserve that lasts for two days.
If you wear this watch every day, there will never be a need for you to adjust the time on it because it will keep running automatically thanks to the movement of your wrist. Even though it comes with a premium price tag, the watch is selling exceptionally well on the pre-owned market even though production was only limited to 27 pieces. Because of its popularity among collectors, some individuals can sell these timepieces for as much as $20,000 or even $30,000.
In Stephen King’s novel “IT,” published in 1986, the character made their first appearance for the first time. It is a malevolent creature that is capable of shapeshifting and manipulating reality in its environment. It was originally represented on film for the first time in the 1990 television adaptation of the story. More recently, the role of IT was played by Bill Skarsgard in the 2017 film adaptation of the story as well as the 2019 sequel IT Chapter Two.
