Still digesting the new Lange, in the meantime a distraction.

Not a watch I wear often, perhaps less than 10 days in over a year since I took delivery / ownership.  

That said, each time I do see it (in the safe while swapping out others or as in this case on the wrist) I just can’t help but smile.  Not simply because of the “face” staring back at me but also because I think the combination of the crisp white dial and the red accents just really pop and work well together.  

It is also a real star in terms of playing with the light; it’s one of those dials that catches a glimpse of light and really shines.

It’s a great watch...

Out of interest why don’t you use it more often ?

It’s just not an everyday watch, it does catch a lot of attention.

So, Monday to Friday it’s usually not the choice for me because of that.

Awesome. I want one. [nt]

Nice shot!

I hesitated between the joker and the clown and ultimately chose the joker, but the clown is great too (though I think my favorite so far might be the dracula - but that’s 13 pcs and all sold out). I assume you ordered this direct through KC - how were th... 

Hey! You need to engage more here.

 By: Jay (Eire) : October 24th, 2019-13:08
Yes, direct from KC. I’d met him in 2017, tried on his Joker and was satisfied the size was OK. Talked about doing something slightly customized with the Joker but then settled on the Clown. Communication was a little less than smooth, explained by langua... 

It.... is awesome ;)

Pun intended. In all seriousness, love the watch and the work that Konstantin has done. Congrats

Great pic and very cool Clown 🤡

Like you said about your clown the same feeling i get with my Joker . When i see it next to my other watches in the safe it gives me a huge smile on me face . Thats why its def a keeper

Yep, and the thing we search for in many higher brow or more technical pieces is also that same smile.

In the end it’s the same reaction / feeling / emotion we are seeking. The beauty of this hobby is that this can be found in a $100 Seiko and $10,000 Rolex or a $100,000 Patek. The difference in those basic feelings between those three examples is in my mi... 

Way cool!

Best shot I've seen of this piece.

I must admit...

 By: mrds : October 25th, 2019-03:05
...that the first time I saw it, I just thought "what a cheap, loud joke". The in-your-face dial led me to ignore the quality and craftmanship behind it. Now that I know more about it, I really appreciate the quality of it and, most of all, the guts of Ch... 

I will say the it was the opposite for me, I was immediately sold on it.

 By: Jay (Eire) : October 26th, 2019-05:26
My hesitation on the first run was the size of the case, I thought it might be a little too big. Not until I had the chance to put one on the wrist was I happy with the size. By that time the original Joker run was long sold out. A watch like this, for a ... 

You definitely

 By: serg70 : November 7th, 2019-01:22
should try other watches from Konstantin. I love Cinema, but unfortunately it is to big for my small wrist... As well as Lunokhod )) WBR Serge

I have had the Cinema on the wrist too.

 By: Jay (Eire) : November 8th, 2019-05:55
Before I ordered the Clown I was lucky enough to be in the same place as Konstantin (and his watches). I like the Lunokhod Prime a lot. Nothing else like it out there.

I am with you all the way.

Although there are many modern temptations as well, we need these classic beauties!
