Konstantin Chaykin decided that without a Wristmon dedicated to Harlequin, his comedy production of Haute Horlogerie would be incomplete, and so he announces the release of the new, limited edition, Harlequin Ventuno.

Why Ventuno? Because we are now in the twenty-first year of the twenty-first century. In Italian, ‘twenty-one’ is ‘ventuno’ – a number closely associated with gambling. Konstantin Chaykin believes he has chosen the perfect moment to release this model, since the Harlequin is characterized by precisely such qualities found in gamblers – passion, zeal and enthusiasm. Indeed, it is easy to get enthusiastic about this watch. The big-eyed face of the Harlequin Ventuno observes the world with joyful enthusiasm and a readiness to completely let loose and go for it, even if it is not encouraged in the present circumstances.

The classic stainless-steel case of the Wristmons collection is engraved on the reverse with the Harlequin’s mask and his jester’s hat on a background of diamond shapes in relief. The branded bezel is decorated with letters in relief which combine to form the name of the watch – Harlequin – while the exclusive strap is decorated with stitched red and black diamonds on a white base. The dial is also made in silver-white with red and black tones. The black mask, like the wings of a bat, partly covers the face-like dial, giving this Wristmon a unique character full of emotion. The expression on the face-like dial, with hour- and minute-indicator discs as eyes and the trademark moon smile, is constantly changing, every minute showing us a new emotion. The Harlequin Ventuno watch will be released in a limited edition of 18 pieces.
