Alexander Shorokoff is sticking close to nature for Baselworld 2018, launching two new animal-inspired pieces.
Both square 36mm pieces house the manual winding caliber 2009 Zarja, of which has been skeletonized in the central position of the dial, with one engraved with a peacock and one with a squirrel.
The dial has the skeletonized window which also shows the hours, minutes and seconds hands, while the movement also sports 38 hours of autonomy.
The dials of both variants have used guilloche and come with a rhodium-plated finish, with the nature motifs applied on top of the dial by hand.
The Squirrel boasts branches and leaves in enamel, along with two gold-plated squirrels, also with enamel details. The Peacock similarly uses enamel in various colors for its design.
Clocking in at only 25 pieces per edition, the steel watches also come with either a brown leather strap or a blue leather depending on the chosen edition. The pre-Basel pieces go for €4,995.
