The unique design of Alexanders Shorokhoff’s colourful and bold, self-winding timepiece “Plus Minus” is impressive.
In this piece, Shorokhoff redefines colours and forms, that originated in painting during the modernist period, to striking effect. As a result of its highly aesthetic dial, Plus Minus breaks away from the appearance of typical luxury watches and appeals to the individuality of its wearer and to the freedom of choice and style.
The dial is made from a solid plate for uniformity and cohesion. With the help of specialised tools, colours are applied to the area surrounding the “2” and the “8” before the area around 9 o’clock is furnished with mother-of-pearl. The main elements are milled to create a relief frame before being covered with several layers of enamel. The design of the dial attests to Alexander Shorokhoff’s skill in perfectly balancing two seemingly incompatible aspects: the devotion of the artist to play with colour and form, and the handcrafted perfection of functionality.
The Swiss automatic winding caliber 2824 of the Plus Minus is extensively calibrated at the manufacture for optimised performance. One special feature is the avant garde-like rotor that is hand-engraved and enameled for added beauty.
