The “Fedor Dostoevsky“ watch series will be continued by watch manufacturer “Alexander Shorokhoff“ and presented at the “Baselworld“ 2010 watch fair in Basel, Switzerland. One new member of the family of hand-winding and automatic watches is the chronograph “Casino by Day and by Night“.
The watch is going to retain its contours but show some constructional improvements. The case lugs are going to be manufactured separately and then attached by screws to the inside of the case. The facilitates brushing of the middle case parts. A complicate lever construction allows for the pushers to be arranged in a vertical position on the case. However, the spotlight is taken – as in all other “Alexander Shorokhoff”-watches – by the movement. Through a sapphire glass back the hand-engraved bridges, blue-dyed screws and all the finely polished levers present their special appeal.
The roulette ring on the case back and the dial are meant to remind – as do the other Dostoevsky watch designs – of the vile human craving for gamble, which Dostoevsky has portrayed wonderfully and treated in a profound philosophical manner in his novels. The price for this new creation is going to be 4500,- EUR.
