An award for “Barbara“
The design of this watch is innovative and different to all other usual watch design. It breaks with the common views of luxury watches. By creating the dial of the “Barbara“-watch Alexander Shorokhov succeeded in perfectly combining two seeming incompatible aspects: the passion of the artist in playing with colours and forms and, on the other hand, the necessary functionality of a timekeeper proofing best craftsmanship.
Now, the watch “Barbara“ has been nominated by the German Council of Design to participate in the competition for the “German Design Award 2016“. For 60 years, the German Council of Design is emphasizing the design competence of the participants, awarding the top products’ and projects’ design and admitting to this competition only the best of them; thus, a nomination alone is already like getting an award.
