German watch maker Alexander Shorokhoff unveils Crazy Hands, a new watch model of the AVANTGARDE collection featuring provocative hands as the dominating element.
Clear lines, circles and stripes strike on intensive yellow and red colours standing out against the unobtrusive colour of the dial. Very rarely used in the watch industry, the yellow colour is a design element for watches of the premium class. Alexander Shorokhov, designer und founder of the manufacturer is disregarding this tradition and created this watch by quoting art-elements of Kazimir Malevich, who is regarded as icon of the Russian Avantgarde, in the early 20th century.
A massive stainless steel case with diameter of 46,5 mm and a height of 11,5 mm borders a black dial which is covered by the embossed characters of the word “AVANTGARDE“ . The figures “60“, “20“ and “40“ dominate the dial expressing a new meaning of time. A luminous outer scale makes it easy to read the time. This effect is reinforced by the luminous points near “3”, “6” and “9”. The watch still has another special feature: when looking at the case from the side, the luminous figures cannot be seen; embossed characters “AVANTGARDE” are emerging similar to a hologram instead.
The hand winding movement 2609.AS can be admired through the sapphire glass back of the case. Hand engraved bridges, the set AS-logo, blue-dyed screws and the rose gold plating are refining the movement achieving premium quality -“Avantgarde to Luxury“.
