Four seasons on one dial.
The new “Four Seasons” model is an exceptional creation from the Alexander Shorokhoff watch manufacture, unveiled for the first time at the WatchTime fair in Düsseldorf from October 27 to October 29, 2023.
A special dial was developed for this watch, distinguishing it from all other dials in the Alexander Shorokhoff collection. The idea was to bring the dial as close as possible to the front sapphire glass. Therefore, it measures a height of 2.4 mm, instead of the usual 0.4 mm. Due to the narrow space between the dial and the front glass, there is only room for the second hand. To integrate the hour and minute hands as well, the center of the dial was lowered in the form of a round recess. This allows the blued hour and minute hands to have sufficient space to make their rounds.
The watch has a size of 36 mm x 36 mm and features a mother-of-pearl dial in four colors. The dial design is avant-garde, with each color symbolizing a season and featuring a corresponding decorative design interpreted by designer Alexander Shorokhov. The green iridescent mother-of-pearl represents spring and the awakening of nature. The lighter mother-of-pearl area with circles symbolizes summer with avant-garde depictions of flowers. The dark blue mother-of-pearl represents winter, while the orange represents autumn, symbolizing the change in nature.
To add more emotion to the dial, the hour markers are designed in various executions. For example, there are two diamonds at the 7 and 10 o’clock positions, numbers at the 4 and 11 o’clock positions, and a star at the 1 o’clock position.
The case is made of stainless steel with two sapphire glasses. The central part is brushed, and the bezel and back are polished. Additionally, a hand-engraved ring is integrated on the back. The watch is water-resistant up to 3 ATM.
Inside the watch ticks an automatic caliber 2000-1 from ETA, featuring a hand-engraved and decorated rotor, blued screws, 20 jewels, and a power reserve of approximately 40 hours.
The distinctive light green ostrich leather strap, perfectly matching the dial’s color, adds an aesthetic touch of the highest level to this model. With a limited edition of only 30 pieces and an excellent price-performance ratio, this innovative model is a must-have for every watch enthusiast.
