Alzenau, Germany based luxury watch manufacture Alexander Shorokhoff pays tribute to the Russian avant-gardist Vassily Kandinsky by presenting a new timepiece from its Avantgarde series. A successor of “Miss Avantgarde” – the best seller of the Avantgarde-line, the new watch will be unveiled at the famous jewellery and watch fair Baselworld 2018.
The philosophy of the design by Alexander Shorokhov stayed the same: to create an extraordinary, avant-garde, fresh, modern, but likewise elegant watch for everyday use which is evoking emotions and can be worn with ease. And the most important criteria of good legibility stayed unchanged, too.
At first glance, the beholder can see that in any case the slogan of “Art on the wrist“ has been completely transformed into a new design. All elements like dial, hands, case or strap have been combined with each other with a lot of care. The manifold colours and forms do not create any chaos; they are not cluttered but give the beholder the feeling that everything is on its place; on the contrary the components create a feeling of lightness and fascination. It means that the traditions of avant-garde artists as Kandinsky, Malevitch, Hundertwasser and Gaudi are masterly continued with this watch.
For the case Alexander Shorokhov decided to use an angular form, where as the dial and the case back are round. The deep red and black colours of the dial are combined with pastel light blue or orange. At the side of the case red gold and black PVD-coated wires have been introduced in three special grooves. All these parts are not in confrontation but completing each other to a harmonious ensemble – the fascinating watch “Kandy Avantgarde”.The movement is the flat and very reliable calibre 2892 ETA. The rotor is hand-engraved and refined. The functions are the most important for time measuring and easily to handle – hours, minutes, seconds and date. In this watch the focus is on the avant-garde design.
