New versions of the Levels model by Alexander Shorokhoff

The independent watchmaker’s timepiece, which is characterized by the different levels of its dial, now comes in two more colours.

T

he first “skyscraper” by Alexander Shorokhoff is extended: the already well-known and almost sold-out automatic double time watch Levels, which is determined by different levels of the dial, now gets two more colour “siblings”.

The unusual basic colours of the dial, grey and golden brown, were not chosen randomly. Already Johann Wolfang von Goethe wrote in his colour theory that grey is one of the best colors, because all other colours appear splendid on it. And the new grey « Levels » model confirms it: the coloured stripe in an indeterminate form comes out gently but decisively, thus emphasizing the importance of the grey color.

The different heights of the levels are balanced in a rose-gold tone and complete the look. The grey-bluish genuine crocodile leather strap remains in the shadow of the watch, drawing all attention to the dial. Overall, the new colours make the model look very harmonious, bright and elegant.

For the second new version of the Levels model, a warm golden brown tone was selected. It radiates warmth and touches the soul of the viewer and wearer. This is exactly what Alexander Shorokhoff wanted to achieve.

Here also, the new combination of colours appears very harmonious, as the different levels in a cold silver tone balance the overall picture. It is freely based on the motto of Wassily Kandinsky: “Colour is a force that influences the soul.”

As with the previous model, the different levels are supplemented by a calendar window, which is positioned on the highest level. With the creatively integrated magnifying glass, the relatively small date of the refined ETA movement 2671 can be enlarged. The magnifying glass resembles a monocle and underlines the creative hand of Alexander Shorokhoff, who did not, as it is usually the case, integrate the magnifying glass directly into the sapphire crystal.

Like other unique pieces of the brand, these two models also fit the philosophy of “Art on the Wrist” and are limited to only 99 pieces per dial colour.
