Alexander Shorokhoff’s latest, most creative and crazy automatic watch ‘Crazy Balls’ continues the line of avant-garde watches. It is the successor of the first anniversary model ‘Crazy Eyes’, which was dedicated to Gustav Klimt, fitting for the 30th anniversary of the manufacture.
Due to unprecedented demand for the first anniversary model, ‘Crazy Eyes’ – which was limited to 30 pieces – has led to develop this new model to meet the demand of collectors.
The ‘Crazy Balls’ model includes new artistic design ideas and vibrant colours. The colourful enamelled ‘balls’ that shift from the centre of the dial to the outside play the main role and give the watch its name. They are not placed symmetrically and evenly, but randomly and freely according to colour and size, and are raised from the dial.
They transmit a sense of joy, enthusiasm and mobility, literally dancing on the scene of the pink or silver dial. Also, other balls can also be found on the dial, such as the tennis ball or a technical representation of the globe under the brand trademark, the oversized number ’60’.
The dial consists of several layers, many different applications and materials such as mother of pearl, brass and several bright colours. Overall everything works in harmony, evoking cheerful and positive emotions. In combination with the avant-garde crazy face, a matching bracelet was created: a stingray leather strap in a blue and red colour (which may vary due to nature of the product). The stainless steel case is 39 mm with 5 ATM water resistance.
The movement is the robust and very reliable Swiss automatic caliber SW200 caliber, which is hand engraved and refined in the watch Alexander Shorokhoff manufacture. It has blued screws and a power reserve of 38 hours. It is fair to say that the new art object ‘Crazy Balls’ is an innovative work of art for the wrist, which is fully aligned with the philosophy of the brand.
This time Alexander Shorokhoff has increased the limitation to 88 pieces per model.
