Alexander Shorokhoff Newport Limited Edition

Alexander Shorokhoff has created a special edition watch collection dedicated to Newport city of United States.

Newport is a seaside city in Rhode Island, United States. It was founded in 1639 and is known as New England’s summer resort and is famous for its historic mansions. It was a major 18th‐century port city and also contains a high number of surviving buildings from the Colonial era of the United States.

Alexander Shorokhov Newport watch was specially created for the brand’s American distributor Ray Grenon.

The dial with the beautiful hand‐engraved mansion plays the leading role, as the production was very complex. It is made out of silver and was blackened, in order to get the three‐dimensional optic. The lettering over the building was inspired by the art deco/Great Gatsby style, and fits perfectly into the overall picture. The back is enameled. The lady’s watch is limited to 39 pieces, while the men’s watch is limited to 16 pieces.

 

Since the first cooperation was very successful, both partners decided to create a second version. The new version of the Newport watch underlines the maritime topic of the port city. Here Alexander Shorokhoff shows a beautiful color range. The big square is coated with blue metallic and the small square, where the second hand is located, is gold‐plated. The striped hands perfectly match the theme. In order to underline its uniqueness, this version is limited to only 10 pieces.

Both models are exclusively available at Ray Grenon, in Newport, Rhode Island.
