Dedicated to the Mexican artist Frida Kahlo and paired with a great story, the automatic watch “Los Craneos” with two time zones has delighted watch lovers from all over the world from the very beginning.
What makes this model so special is the elaborately hand-painted and hand-enamelled mother-of-pearl dial. For the first time Alexander Shorokhoff uses miniature painting, which requires extraordinary precision and skillful hand guidance. To produce such a miniature painting, the painter works with a magnifying glass and needs on average 40 hours.
The regulator R02, the second edition of the highly successful regulator R01, is a fascinating watch in traditional execution. Introduced for the first time at Baselworld 2016 the watch received strong demand from the outset. To emphasise the identity of this exquisite watch, this masterpiece was limited.
Now, a chronograph is also part of the “family” of “Dostoevsky” watches. The case has the same harmonious form as the automatic winding movement models. However, the little feet are now manufactured separately and after brushing, soldered into the intended holes. Thereby, the center part of the watch can be brushed more easily. A brilliant lever construct at the push button allows them to be attached to the case vertically.
The roulette on the bottom of the case and on the dial, reminds of compulsive gambling similarly to other Dostoevsky watches. It’s a theme Dostoevsky analyzed so well in his novels and portrayed with philosophical profoundness.
