Vintage 4 Karo

Alexander Shorokhoff Vintage Collection

Vintage Nr 4 Karo

 

AS.V4

Two different styles collide in Alexander Shorokhoff Vintage 4 Karo: the minimalist style with very few elements for the time display and the expressively designed style with a checked pattern for the date display. The two styles complement each other and balance each other out. They do not create confrontation, but harmonize together.
A Milanese strap is the perfect fit for the Vintage 4 Karo featuring the black dial. It creates the desired contrast and refines the watch in a unique way.
The Milanese strap is of high quality and is produced by one of the best German watchband manufacturers. It’s about 4.5mm thick, delicately crafted and sanded and polished on all sides.  Therefore it has no sharp edges and is very supple

INSPIRATION

Two different styles collide in this model: the minimalist style with very few elements for the time display and the expressively designed style with a checked pattern for the date display. The two styles complement each other and balance each other out. They do not create confrontation, but harmonize together.
The automatic winding movement of caliber 2627.Poljot was chosen. It was used for watch manufacture up until 1982. The company was able to seek out a few movements for a limited production. The movement is offered in two different versions: fully engraved and partially engraved.
In the fully engraved version, all bridges and the rotor are hand-engraved, the gears are reworked and polished and the screws are blued. In the partially engraved movement, only rotor and balance bridges are engraved. All other bridges receive a cloud pattern polish. The beauty of the movement can be admired through the sapphire glass bottom here as well. In total, there are 100 pieces each with a partially engraved movement and 35 pieces each with a fully engraved movement.
The dial is produced in two versions as well: silver and black. Due to the sunburst pattern and the transparent coat of enamel, the dial has a luminous glow
Time, day of the week and date are very easy to read. The date display can be adjusted with an additional push piece at 8 o’clock. The day of the week is adjusted using the winder crown.
The watch measures 43.5 mm in diameter and is approx. 13.6 mm tall. Despite it’s weight, it rests comfortably and elegantly on the wrist. A luxurious sapphire glass is used for the both sides. In addition, the front glass is curved and AR-coated.
Alexander Shorokhoff Vintage Karo is one of the showpieces of this manufacture. It’s a watch for people looking for something exceptional, not ordinary, on the watch market

Alexander Shorokhov wouldn’t be Alexander Shorokhov if he hadn’t created another unique model once again.
The idea was simple and original: Transferring the days of the week into images and having them appear in the day of the week window

INSPIRATION

Alexander Shorokhov wouldn’t be Alexander Shorokhov if he hadn’t created another unique model once again.
The idea was simple and original: Transferring the days of the week into images and having them appear in the day of the week window.
He created the days of the week in his own, avant-garde style – and succeeded. He also takes the display of the month and gets it printed in white on a red background.
It gives the model something very emotional, provocative and unique.
There will be only 35 specimens per dial. The watch is a unique artifact and will most certainly appreciate in value over time
