Alexander Shorokhoff Vintage Lucky 8 Rose Gold
Get Lucky with the Lucky 8
Alexander Shorokhoff's Vintage line has been extended with the new edition of the Lucky 8.
The new model is even more sophisticated with its filigree features and buoyant engravings. The cutout in the dial allows an inside view of the refined watch movement. Engravings can also be found at the date changing wheel. The three fixing screws are blued by hand in order to complete the appearance.
A standout feature for the Lucky 8 is its date display. A special date disk in silver with yellow marks is fixed to the movement. The dial has 31 small windows so you can see the current date at the yellow mark appearing in one of the windows and read it on the outer scale. The stamped and silver plated date figures sparkle in renewed splendour.
In order to reach a balance with the date indication, the hands have been coloured yellow. The hour and minute hands are kept in typical Alexander Shorokhoff design, with updated small black decor lines. For better legibility, the second hand has been made half in black and half in yellow colour. The yellow seam of the genuine ostrich leather strap perfectly completes this beautiful watch.
Powering the Lucky 8 is the Poljot 2416 movement - a precise instrument which was used in the earlier rendition of Lucky 8. Sadly, the production of this movement was stopped about 20 years ago. Nowadays, it belongs to the Vintage rarities.
At the Alexander Shorokhoff manufactory, the movement is completely re-worked, lubricated, hand engraved and adjusted. Its beauty can be admired through the sapphire glass back.
Each version of the Lucky 8 is limited to only 50 pieces. This is the exact number of Vintage movements the manufactory could track down.
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.
