Description

This is an automatically translated text.
Dedicated to the Mexican artist Frida Kahlo.

Mexico, early 20th century. Revolutionary times. Not only for the state, but also for art. Diego Rivera, José Clemente Orozco, David Siqueiros and Frida Kahlo revolutionized Mexican painting with its independent, avant-garde and at the time colorful character. And they became world famous.

During his trip through Mexico, Alexander Shorokhov, founder of the Alexander Shorokhoff watch manufactory, visited various museums and places where Frida Kahlo worked. He was deeply impressed by your presence and creativity, the colours, the inner strength of the artwork, which itself had a dramatic and spectacular life full of pain and passion. Alexander Shorokhov has dedicated his new watch "Los Craneos" to her in 2018.

Two elements serve as the main motif of the clock: Two skulls and the numerous metal applications with their pyramid-shaped, pointed heads on the dial. Both depict the struggle of Frida Kahlo with death. The skulls are deeply rooted in Mexican culture and symbolise the game of life or death; they became the eponym for this watch model. The rivet-like metal applications scattered across the dial are intended to symbolise the painful metal corset in which Frida Kahlo was wearing.

The watch is manufactured as a "double timer". On one time zone you find the date, on the other time zone a central second. Two automatic movements are used for this double time display. Both were hand-engraved and can be seen through the sapphire crystal back on the back of the watch. This model is limited to only 47 pieces, because that is how many years Frida Kahlo has
...enjoys her works of art.
