The “Leo Tolstoi” watch uses the 3133 movement. It originated from the Swiss watch industry and has many similarities to the popular Valjoux 7734 movement. The movement was manufactured in Russia and is completely disassembled, revised, hand-engraved, refined and re-assembled at the “Alexander Shorokhoff” watch manufacture.
No matter if skeletonizing, guilloche or engraving, these tasks on movement components require maximum precision, patience and concentration from our master watchmakers. It takes engravers several hours, sometimes several days to carve out a “soul” from the cold steel that will turn every model into an exclusive specimen in the end.
The case of the “Tolstoi watch” was designed in a classic, round and tiered shape that optically minimizes the watches’ height. The rounded, delicate push button and the relatively flat, nostalgic crown complete the timeless and elegant design of the watch.
The chronograph “Graf” opened up a new dimension of engraving and skeletonizing. One model is handcrafted with a 3-D dial and the other one with the finest skeletonization.
They went with a traditional Russian adornment pattern for the finely skeletonized model. In order to be able to work out the floral designs better and give the watch more of a “soul”, less material than usual was removed from the dial and the movement. Diamonds can be set either on the steel or on the gold bezel. This work is made under the microscope by highly professional jewellers. Only best quality diamonds are used for all Alexander Shorokhoff watches.
