Alexander Shorokhov always goes his own way in the field of watch design, often combining two opposites at once.
“A straight line is genius, but a curvy line is divine!”Alexander Shorokhoff
The ‘Straight & Curve’ model combines exactly these straight lines with the curved ones in a harmonious appearance. The entire dial is not obtrusive and cluttered, but playfully manages to combine the two elements. The curved line patterns meander to match the shape of the dial in the upper right area of the dial, while the straight lines find their place to the left of the ‘Alexander Shorokhoff’ brand name.
The avant-garde designed dial is complemented by two hour applications at 3 and 9 o’clock, which enhance the vintage style of the 60s/70s. Together with the gold-plated hands and the large number 60, they offer excellent legibility of the time. The 39.5 mm size was chosen for the case and complements the reference to the 60s. It is rounded on the sides, while the bezel and the case-back are polished and the middle part has a brushed look. From both sides, front and back, the case is covered with sapphire glass. Special glass seals made of Hytrel and rubber gaskets for the bezel and back allow water resistance of 5 ATM.
The movement is the Poljot caliber 2616.2H. The Poljot Caliber 2616.2H was first introduced in 1972. It has a diameter of 26 mm, with the rotor overhanging the movement by another 1.5 mm, resulting in a diameter of 27.5 mm. The movement also features a date mechanism, albeit not a simple one, but an instantaneous date change, implemented by a lever. It is completely disassembled, engraved, refined, re-oiled, assembled, adjusted and certified at the Alexander Shorokhoff Manufacture.
All ‘Straight & Curve’ models are given a classic appearance and are produced in a limited edition of 30 pieces per colour.
