ALEXANDER SHOROKHOFF Heritage Fedor Dostoevsky Manual Black Special Edition
For this watch collection, Alexander Shorokhoff used – the hand winding calibre 3105 AS. The movement is dismantled and revised by „Alexander-Shorokhoff“watch factory. The bridges are engraved, the wheels are polished or guilloched, and the screws are blue-dyed. At last, all components are carefully re-assembled.
When developing the design, Alexander was inspired above all by the gambling passion and the unusual life of this great philosopher and writer. All models of this series feature modern yet classical cases with softly rounded off edges. Near the „12“ a flexible band connector is mounted at the upper side of the case in perfect shape, reminiscent of the 19th century style, serving to fix the croco leather strap. At this place was also arranged the winding crown, completing the harmonic and symmetric overall picture of this watch. The design of the dials is dedicated to the themes of the writer’s novels.
The hand winding model was created with a dial representing roulette with 36 figures and the green “zero” in the middle. The automatic watch features the gamble „Black Jack“ and with the four corners engraved with the symbols of the four suits – spades, diamonds, hearts and clubs while the display of power reserve shows the result of the card playing.

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.
