Alexander Shorokhoff. Handcrafted obsessions.
In the middle of Alzenau, a little town in Bavaria is situated the “Alexander Shorokhoff” watch manufacturer, producing mechanical watches and distributing them all over the world.
In 1992, after attending a further training course at the Ministry of Economics in Hessen, Alexander Shorokhov, the founder of the manufactory, had first established a sales company; later, in 1994 he started his own watch brand in the middle price sector; in 2003, as a well-versed designer and watch producer, he succeeded to apply his new brand “Alexander Shorokhoff” for a patent under his own name. The two “f” at the end of the brands name underline his Russian roots and the historical background of the new watch brand what is not denied by him, but he is proud of.
His aim was to create exclusive, high valued, mechanical watches. He took on high-qualified gifted watchmakers, engravers and designers selected with deliberation, and he started to develop the design, the production and the sale of his products.
The main task for Alexander Shorokhov is the fabrication of watches. This is not easy. To produce high-quality watches is very difficult and requires a large competence.
Alexander Shorokhov. A cosmopolite with Russian roots.
Alexander was a scion of a prosperous family in Moscow with interest in art, literature and music which he had already developed in his early youth. He also had a keen interest in anything mechanical and architecture. No wonder then he enrolled at the age of 18 at Moscow University in the faculty of engineering. Immediately after his final examination, he started working for a construction company moving quickly up the ladder from a foreman to a director which he followed by a brief political career as people’s representative in Moscow which gave him the necessary experience in politics.
Due to his good performance he was one of the few to be selected by Michael Gorbatchov alongside other young and talented Russian managers to be sent to Germany in order to become acquainted with the free market – in the sense of “Glasnost” and “Perestroika”.
It was long before he found his way and established a watch sales company in order to commercialise the best Russian watch brand in Western Europe. Success was quick and sweet while his company in Germany became a world-wide trading enterprise.
Sale of representing the old and established Russian watch brands was just a beginning as in 2003, he created his own watch brand using his name which was his all time dream to be able to produce his own watches implying entirely his cultural roots as well as his passion for precision, aesthetics and exclusiveness.
The result of his efforts is watches which have no equals in rare faction and ambition. Nowadays, passionate discussion within high-class circles of watch connoisseurs is unthinkable without his watches.
