The German watchmaker is celebrating its 25th anniversary with a series exceptional watches, one of which is this new addition to the Avantgarde collection.

Alexander Shorokhoff has been in business for a quarter of a century this year. To mark the occasion, the innovative German watchmaker will be releasing a series of new models. And you can rest assured that each one will embody the brand philosophy — producing timepieces that give that feeling of wearing art on the wrist.

First up, we have the latest edition to the Avantgarde collection, with a new Crossing series model. The watch has a lot in common with others within the same collection: it has retained the same style hands and sports oversized numerals for the 20 and 40 minutes past the hour markers.

The dial layout also remains very clean, with an updated look. This time the dial is divided in two sectors - the seconds can be found in the subdial, and the minute ring takes up the superdial. Each is indicated by a single, elegant hand.

In another novelty, this watch also features jumping hours, which can be found in the big window at 12 o’clock. To make the hours jump, a new movement had to be recruited. In this case, the manufacture has relied on a calibre by Dubois Depraz, a company which brings 100+ years of experience to the equation.

To add something extra to the movement, the gold plated rotor is engraved, as we’ve come to see from Alexander Shorokhoff in previous models. Of course, the movement can be appreciated through the sapphire glass display back. It is housed within a 43.5mm stainless steel case that has been finished nicely with high-gloss polishing and fine brushing.

Now, what about that name? The “Crossing” moniker comes from the thin lines in the minutes’ ring that criss-cross each other. There is also a crossing of sorts in terms of colours, with the dial representing a cross of complementary colours of vibrant blue and soft champagne.

The new watch will be released in a limited edition of 25 pieces per dial colour, with four different colour combinations in total. Each is expected to retail for 3,995 euro, representing very good value for a watch that has been designed with functionality and elegance in mind.
