ALEXANDER SHOROKHOFF Vintage 5 Black Limited Edition
The second model of the fifth vintage edition is equipped with a Swiss manual winding movement called Lanco 2461, which was produced by the company Langendorf SA in the sixties. Lanco was the brand name of the watch manufacture Langendorf SA, which produced movements for other companies since 1873 and from 1887 became mostly independent of suppliers.
Towards the end of the 1880s the company was considered to be the largest clock factory in the world. In 1971 Lanco was merged into the Omega-Tissot Group, and the production of the movements ended two years later.
The Alexander Shorokhoff watch manufacture was able to secure several of the movements in order to produce two models in a limited edition of 25 pieces each. The movements are completely refurbished and elaborate hand-engraved.
The design adapts to the slim example of the 60’s. The stainless steel case holds a cylindrical sapphire glass which is very complex in the production plus a sapphire glass bottom. As well as the models from the 60’s, the new vintage V5 models are equipped with convex antique white and black dials. The dial indexes 20, 40 and 60 are produced in a complicated procedure in order to balance the convex part of the dial. This procedure gives the watch a noble appearance. The extensive dial conveys the feeling, that the watch is much bigger than it really is.

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.
