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 their 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 greatly impressed by her presence and creativity, the colors, 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 appliqués with their pyramid-shaped, pointed heads on the dial. Both depict Frida Kahlo's struggle with death. The skulls are deeply rooted in Mexican culture and symbolize the game of life or death; they became the namesake for this watch model. The rivet-like metal appliqués scattered across the dial are meant to symbolize the painful metal corset Frida Kahlo was in.

The watch is manufactured as a "doubletimer". On one time zone you will find the date, on the other time zone a central second. Two automatic movements are used for this dual time display. Both were hand engraved and can be seen through the sapphire crystal case back on the back of the watch. This model is limited to only 47 pieces, because that's how many years Frida Kahlo delighted the world with her artwork.
