Wow, this is really pretty cool. I don't quite know why, but I am really drawn to this new timepiece from boutique German watch maker Alexander Shorokhoff
. This new watch is simply called the "Avantgarde." Use of large numerals and chronograph subdials adds a comforting cartoonish look that I quite love. It helps that everything on the dial is still well-proportioned. Plus, the detailing is quite impressive. I love the use of the contrasting colors on the dial, as well as the stylized shapes of the hands and numerals.
Details on the Avantgarde chrono are scant, as it will be officially debuted next month. It has a mechanical 30 minute chronograph with the date. I believe it is a base ETA that has been reworked and decorated by Alexander Shorokoff. Price is said to be reasonable. I will look out for more information soon.
