Do you dream of owning your own, customised timepiece, made to your specifications, bearing your insignia?
Then ALexander Shorokhoff’s exquisite hand-skeltonised, hand-engraved timepiece may be the answer to your dreams.
Named the “Leo Tolstoi” for its superbly crafted finish and highly individual execution, this timepiece is based upon the distinctive 3133 manual chronograph movement and is completely disassembled, revised, hand-engraved, refined and re-assembled at Alexander Shorokhoff’s manufactory in Germany. The result is a strong heart with a unique and ennobled finish.
Every element of the movement is ennobled. Some of the classical techniques adopted include: skeletonising, guilloching and engraving. Each process requires maximum precision, patience and concentration of master watchmakers at the Shorokhoff Atelier. It takes engravers many hours, sometimes several days, to carve out and bring to life a distinctive soul from the base calibre. The result of this labour of love is an exclusive timepiece of beauty and functionality.
The case of the “Tolstoi watch” is designed in a classic, round and tiered shape to optically minimise the watches’ height. The delicately rounded, pushers and the relatively flat, nostalgic crown complete the timeless design of the watch.
The creation process involves design development, material selection, specification of the level of customisation, movement ennobling, assembly and testing. As the customer you decide if you’d prefer a rhodium-plated or golden dial, how you would like the engraving to appear (traditional or modern), what elements you’d like featured in the engraving and the interplay of colours and finishes. It is an exciting and very special collaboration that aims to create your perfect watch.
Diamonds can be set onto the steel or into the gold bezel for added sparkle. This work is carried out by professional jewellers to exacting detail and only premium quality stones are used.
