Aleaxnder Shorokhoff Crossing 2
For the company’s 25th anniversary in 2017, Alexander Shorokhoff created a special Jumping Hour collection that embodied the company’s philosophy of innovation and creativity. Through the Crossing Collection, Alexander Shorokhoff not only showcases a new design direction but also a different movement – the in-house-ennobled Jumping Hour based upon a Dubois Depraz complication.
Crossing 2, created to mark Aleaxnder Shorokhoff’s 30th Anniversary, embraces colour and form in a bold and expressive manner to deliver an elegant and fresh aesthetic. As such, the new dials have been designed with even more detail in mind. The small seconds ring and minute ring are further accentuated by clear markings making them easier to read.
The base of the dial on the steel case model shimmers a beautiful midnight blue reflected off the mother-of-pearl material while pristine sub-dials are presented in white, lined with red for clarity and functional division. The jumping hour is displayed in a generous window at the 12 o’clock position. The hands are colour-matched to each section in an harmonious manner: flame-blued minute hand and red small second hand. Other elements such as the distinctive numerals 20 and 40 have been retained to reflect the unmistakable Alexander Shorokhoff style that makes the Crossing Collection so attractive.
The gold-plated rotor is beautifully hand-engraved and can be viewed via the generous sapphire crystal, exhibition case back. The case is made of polished stainless steel, the bezel and the back are highly polished, the middle part, which takes the most wear, is finely brushed.
Crossing 2 represents a bold, modern interpretation of a classic horological complication – the jumping hour. The fresh blue, white and red colour combination is enhanced by a stunning leather band. This is a timepiece for an individual who marches to their own beat.
