The New Tchaikovsky alarm clock from Alexander Shorokhoff: “Swan Lake AVG”
famous ballet - Swan Lake.
This fact is not accidental, since the numbers on the colored alarm clock disc, which is placed in the center of the clock, were designed and developed in a curvy style. This style, with its curved shape, is said to be reminiscent of the world-famous ballet that had its world premiere in 1877 at the Bolshoi Theater in Moscow. Swan Lake is today part of the standard repertoire of classical ballet companies and the new alarm clock by “Alexander Shorokhoff” brings this glory back to life.
The blue colored disc in the center of the dial is used to set the alarm time and is built into a complex two-layer construction of the dial. In the area at six o’clock, there is a small plate with an arrow. If you connect the desired alarm time exactly to this small arrow, a gentle alarm signal sounds at that time. This alarm disc can be set by a separate crown, which is located in the area at 11 o’clock on the case. When turning the crown clockwise, the disc thereby turns in the opposite direction, i.e. counterclockwise.
The dials are available in different finishes and colors. The hour and minute hands were designed in the usual “Alexander Shorokhoff” style with luminous material, so that the time can be easily read even at night. The gold-plated hour appliqués emphasize the glamorous watch.
However, the special feature of this new clock is the hinged double case. This additional function
allows the owner of this alarm clock to have an unrestricted view of the time even when lying down
and enjoy the pleasant sound of the alarm tone.
The engravers of the “Alexander Shorokhoff” watch manufactory have also done a great job in refining the movement. The movement has been imaginatively engraved and valuable refined. Traditionally engraved motifs of the bridges, as well as the guilloché of the cogs create a nostalgic feeling. After engraving and polishing, all bridges are gold-plated or rhodium-plated, as well as the screws are blued to give the movement a particularly beautiful look. Little by little, a fantastic little work of art is created, which can be admired in all its beauty through a sapphire crystal case back.
With a limitation of 30 pieces per dial color, this elegant alarm clock is dedicated to the anniversary of the manufacture.
