A unique and noble vintage watch. Alexander Shorokhoff’s Sixtythree collection, featuring cylindrical sapphire glass, is inspired by the flat watches of the sixties. This design was very popular at the time, and defines the understated look of this revolutionary decade. The Sixtythree collection carries the spirit and tradition of the past into a contemporary setting.
The polished and curved stainless steel case is topped by a domed sapphire glass to give it its retro look. Although the result appears effortless, manufacturing domed sapphire glass is a difficult and involved process, indicating this watch is a little more than meets the eye.
Like watches from the sixties, the curved dials of Alexander Shorokhoff’s Sixtythree models are available in dark blue, emerald green, bordeaux red or deep black – classic and timeless, yet subtly distinctive.
Other unnoticed details ensure the elegance and balance of models within the Sixtythree collection. The rose gold plated numerals 20, 40 and 60 are a masterstroke of precision due to the fact that they have to compensate for the curved dial without adding height that would interfere with the hands or impact the glass.
Every detail works together from a design perspective but as with all Alexander Shorokhoff watches, function underlies design and vice-versa. The fine appearance and curved glass work as a magnifier to make the watch look bigger than it actually is and facilitate legibility. A conquest for ingenious design.
