Alexander Shorokhoff’s Avantgarde collection is immediately recognisable by its bold dial designs and balanced case structures. Signature features such as oversized numerals and elegantly formed hands give this range its point of difference.
Avantgarde challenges us to expect the unexpected – and the elegant Crossing model series lives up to the challenge. Not only does Crossing deliver on the design front with its exciting colour ways and enchanting crisscross motives, it also presents an impressive Dubois Dupraz jumping hour complication.
To facilitate legibility, the dial of this exceptional watch is divided in two functional sectors. The upper part shows the minutes set against a striking sub dial and the lower part shows the seconds in a smaller sub dial located at 6 o’clock. A small window at 12 o’clock displays the hour which ‘jumps’ upon the 60 second mark in a definite and clear fashion.
The Dubois Dupraz base movement is very complex, consisting of many fine mechanical parts and gears which interconnect to enable the hours to jump discretely on the hour. The rotor is hand-engraved and gold-plated for added appeal and can be admired through the generous sapphire crystal exhibition case back.
Whether you see Alexander Shorokhoff’s Crossing timepiece as an excellent watch uniting function and form or as an attractive piece of art on the wrist, you won’t be let down because the seamless combination of the two it the secret to its success.
TIP: We love this piece on a French navy-coloured leather band – very Art Deco!
