Alexander Shorokhoff Look Back In Time For Latest Creation

Alexander Shorokhoff Look Back In Time For Latest Creation

Alexander Shorokhoff’s latest timepiece takes inspiration from Babylonian astronomy which dates back to around 3000 BC.

The new BABYLONIAN III.2 is housed in a 43.5 mm case and is available in a new colour combination. The manual winding movement is intricately engraved and refined. The front bridge is hand skeletonised and hand-engraved. The movement is adorned from below with a specially designed hand-skeletonised and engraved brass plate. The main plate and other bridges of the movement are hand-finished with a special graver, then yellow gold plated. Additionally, the back of the movement features a plate with beautiful skeletonisation, rhodium-plated. A two-tone refinement of the movement creates contrasts and an elegant appearance.

The dial consists of two parts. The lower part showcases the zodiac signs, first etched and then hand engraved. The outer area of each zodiac sign is hand-matted and yellow gold plated. On the upper part of the dial, which comprises two mother-of-pearl rings and hour markers, there is a minute track on the outer ring and the abbreviations of the zodiac signs on the inner ring.

This exceptional model in a stainless steel case is limited to 50 pieces.
