For sale is my lightly used Alexander Shorokhoff Equa EQ01-1 24 hours automatic watch which comes with all box and papers. The watch is in pristine condition with no noticeable scratches on the crystal and the watch case. There are some hairline scratches on the watch buckle. The ultra-soft orange calf skin leather strap is super comfortable and the 24 hours movement is quite a rarity in todays world as Alexander Shorokhoff uses a vintage Poljot movement and gave it a new zest of life. The price is a bargain at USD750 inclusive of shipping to CONUS. I am based in Malaysia and I have many positive feedbacks here in WUS and normally the shipping to CONUS will take only about 5-7 working days. Interested, please PM me or email me at [email protected]
The specs are as below:
La Mitad del Mundo is an equatorial monument in San Antonio de Pichincha in Ecuador. The monument is located about 23 kilometers north of the capital Quito and marks the location where Charles Marie de La Condamine, traveling with a French expedition in 1736, determined the exact position of the equator. Alexander Shorokhoffs colourful EQUA timepiece is an homage to this significant geographic and celestial point.
It artistically interprets the equinox at the equator, symbol of the beginning of spring and autumn, in two semi rings on the dial, each of them representing 12 hours. The vibrant orange of the upper ring symbolises the heat and fire of day, and the cool blue of the lower ring, alludes to mild equatorial nights. Just like the equator enclosing the ocean, the ring closes around the centre of the dial symbolising water with its gleaming light or dark mother-of-pearl. Colour contrasting hands and oversized numerals denote this timepeice as a member of Shorokhoffs Avantgarde collection.
