Richard Mille Replica

Konstantin Chaykin, a well-known independent watchmaker, has unveiled another of his unique and original timepieces. This watch is called Richard Mille Replica. It was created with a Vanitas aesthetic theme as its basic guideline. Vanitas refers to a form of art that emphasizes the temporary nature of all human possessions. The watch's striking Sterling and 18K rosegold dial features hand-performed engravings as well as painted sections.Richard Mille Replica These symbols include Chronos, an Ancient Greek god of time, a skull, and an hourglass. Vanitas art's philosophy is also responsible for the relaxed way that the time is displayed. While hours are displayed in the usual manner, minutes are shown using the mechanical representation of an hourglass with six dots that correspond with ten minute periods. Although it may not be the most accurate way to display the time, it is in line with our view of each moment. Konstantin Chaykin's latest horological wonder comes in a large 45mm housing. This is especially impressive considering that it is made from 18 K gold. It comes in a limited edition of five pieces and is priced at $70,230.

Vanitas Art – Hourglasses & Skulls as Symbols for Impermanence. Vanitas' symbolic art serves as a reminder of humankind's impending death. Its peak was in the paintings of 16th and 17th-century Dutch masters. These works of art, which include hourglasses as well as skulls and candles as motifs, serve as symbols for futility and the transitory nature of all goods on earth. This idea was once expressed in the "Carpe Diem" ("Size the Day") saying, which cautions us to make the most of our time here on earth. The Vanitas common motifs are used in the novel Konstantin Chaykin, as it has been noted. Its central figure is the beautiful silver-and-gold dial's ancient Greek deity Chronos. He is shown as an elderly, wise, white-bearded, man with wings and who was used as the representation for time in both Greco Roman tradition and the Renaissance. As it was depicted in mosaics from the ancient world, Chronos spins the Zodiac wheel. It also indicates the current Zodiac sign through an aperture at the three o clock position. This aperture is used in our photography to indicate the Taurus. His left hand is holding a harvesting knife (Chronos is a sort of an old Grim Ripper), while his right hand rests on an hoursglass that shows the minute years via the patent mechanism.
