Well maybe not the old, but Alexander Shorokhoff has certainly bucked the trend of the phrase with its latest chronograph fusing both tradition and modernity together
In doing just that with the Karo 3, the new iteration offers a modern skeleton sitting alongside a traditional design.
Shorokhoff says the number “3” in the name of the watch symbolizes the three different layers of metal from which the dial was produced and gets its skeletonized appearance: Silver-colored, yellow-gold-plated, and rose-gold-plated.
All three “checkered grids” are connected to each other and form a pattern in an interesting 3D look.
The 3 bridges on the upper movement plate, which can be seen through the checkered pattern, have a filigree hand-finished sunray engraving.
The design team described this as controversial to the pattern but vital in creating the necessary contrast to it.
Additionally, the chronograph offers a stopwatch with totalizing function, which can be activated with the upper pusher. The lower pusher returns the second hand to its original position.
Both models are available in a limited edition of only 49 pieces at a top price-performance ratio with further model variations to come.
