A debut of the latest inventions of the famous Russian watchmaker Konstantin Chaykin will take place at the exhibition BaselWorld 2012 (8-15th March, Basel).

In the run-up to this significant event Konstantin Chaykin hurries to announce a creation of a new mechanical enigma watch – Mystery. The new creation of the Russian master represents a watch with a completely transparent dial and a pair of hands in the center mysteriously suspended in the empty space of the gold case. Driven by an invisible force, they duly show the current time. The miniature movement of the watch is fully hidden under the bezel of the case decorated with applied Roman numerals and a sophisticated aperture of the moon phase indicator.
It is not easy to penetrate into the mystery of the mechanical movement, but the watchmaker is ready to disclose it during the exhibition.

Welcome to the show of micromechanical magic with complete exposure! We will be happy to see you in showroom 5-1 at AHCI B01 stand.

My guess is that the inner crystal is actually a gear and rotates to move the hand gears. :wf

There is another watch with a similar concept that has the hands mounted on two flat discs of sapphire, each of which are encircled by small rubber bands that grip the disc and let the movement impart rotational control to each disc. No center point for the hands is necessary on that watch. It must be sent to the factory to be worked on because they have to do repairs in a clean room environment, to replace the rubber bands or whatever.

This watch here has a little gear in the center next to the pivot of the two hands. It's under the round cap that covers the center point of the hands. The center of the little gear is visible as a hole in the round cap. So we can know that gear turns around, but why? What do the teeth engage, another gear? Also, in the two pics you show, the little gear is oriented toward the 4 and toward the 2, respectively. So we know the gear changes its position, but also it changes its position relative to the hour hand and the minute hand, and therefore the gear is separate from whatever holds the two hands. That gear has me stumped.
