Inspired by Russian and European art and culture, the AvantGarde collection continues with the tradition of avant garde art and supremism of the 20th century with unique, matchless and artful designs of wristwatches.
The AvantGarde Chronograph series stands out with a classic design that is accentuated by the big numbers - 20, 40 and 60 - and the "eyes" in contrasting colours at 3 and 9 o'clock.
Incorporating elements of regulator watch into a chronograph, chronograph-regulators are high precision watches. They have large-scale and complex mechanics. That’s why they are so rare.
The chronograph hand is differentiated with another colour in order to improve the legibility while the longish pushers serve to ensure greater comfort when handling the chronograph.

About Alexander Shorokhoff
Alexander Shorokhoff was founded in 2003 in Alzenau, Germany by Alexander Shorokhov. The brand was borne out of Shorokhov’s desire to create watches with high standards of workmanship, quality and design.
Shorokhov’s designs are drawn from his Russian roots and the many countries and cultures he visits. Engravings and decorations painstakingly done by hand are signature traits of Alexander Shorokhoff, with a single master watchmaker being responsible for one watch from start to finish.
Truly, a piece of Art on the Wrist.
