A RARE VINTAGE RARITY.
A true vintage watch is a rarity. Whether from renowned or lesser-known brands, they have become an indispensable part of today’s watch industry and are highly valued by watch collectors.
For the new model “Vintage 7”, a smaller case of 39.5 mm was chosen, just like in the 60s. The case was rounded on the sides for a more classic look. As always, the bezel and back were polished and the middle part was brushed. From both sides, front and back, the case is covered with spahir glasses. Special glass seals made of Hytrel and rubber gaskets for the bezel and back allow water resistance of 5 ATM.
The dials consist of three parts. The basic dial is made in silver color and a sunburst finish, the upper dial itself consists of two parts – above the 3-9 o’clock line and below the 3-9 o’clock line. They are made in blue color. The shape of the two upper parts is not chosen randomly. They both have round recesses in the area at 12 o’clock and 6 o’clock, as well as in the middle segment of the dial. In the outer recesses are placed important elements – the “Alexander Shorokhoff” symbol, the distinctive number 60 and the calendar. A small hour hand is placed in the middle segment.
It is this small hour hand, as well as the shape and colors of the upper parts of the dial, that make the watch so special. They convey the vintage feel in a soft and pleasant presentation.
The lower dial has two more time markers – for minutes in the outer part and for hours in the middle part. These hands are also made in the same size. For seconds, markers are made on the upper dials and for that, such large second hands are made. Two appliqués at 9 and 3 o’clock, also made in a vintage shape, complete the affiliation with the 60s.
The movement used is the Poljot caliber 2614 from the 60’s. It is completely disassembled, engraved, refined, re-oiled, assembled, adjusted and certified at Alexander Shorokhoff Manufacture. After that, you get a mechanical beauty. This can also be viewed through the sapphire crystal case back.
All models of the “Vintage 7” collection are produced in a limited edition of 30 pieces per color and are dedicated to the 30th anniversary year of the manufacture.
