Alexander Shorokhoff’s Kandy collection is really eye candy for the watch lover.
In addition to the original Kandy watches with guilloched dials, Alexander Shorokhoff has created two elegant models with a more classic appeal. Everything about these watches from their gorgeous quadratic cases to their elegantly simple dials is pure artistry.
In his own words, designer Alexander Shorokhoff says: “The Kandy collection embodies good design and robust functionality, proving you can have workable art that tells you the time and brings you joy.”
Shorokhoff’s signature avantguarde design with oversized numerals and clearly visible hands is maintained in the classic Kandy collection. The pristine dials deviate little in terms of colour and shape and this is why they work so well in a day to day or formal setting.
The reverse side of the watch is no less fascinating than its face. In typical Shorokhoff style, even the underside and movement have been given an artistic treatment. Set into the back of the case are four round glass windows in red, blue and yellow which provide a glimpse to the engraved movement within. The circular window shapes are proportioned exactly to match the edges of the case, thus maintaining design balance while delivering diversity of form.
The case itself is also more than meets the eye. In fact, it is initially constructed without lugs – they are welded to the back side at a later stage. In this way it is possible to insert the silver or golden wires into the milled channels on the case side in a continuous length. Upon request it is also possible to fill the channels with coloured enamel if you require a more bespoke look.
Every element of Alexander Shorokhoff’s Kandy Classic timepiece is well-planned and perfectly executed. All elements add up to an restrained timepiece that will endure the test of time and hold its own for many years to come.
