The success of the first Babylonian model that was nominated for the German Design Award 2015, motivated Alexander Shorokhov to initiate a second version.

The inspiration arose from the contact with the history of the biggest and most powerful city’s of ancient times - “Babylon”. It’s not a coincidence the name of the city translates to “gate of god”.

The prosperity of the city in its heyday attracted astronomers, scientists, craftsmen and artists and turned it into a highly developed cultural center. Furthermore the stellar constellations were discovered there, the zodiac signs invented and the first horoscopes been created. This is where the cultural fascination Babylon’s is picked up. In a highly complicated procedure, the movement’s plates and the outer ring of the dial are delicately carved out by hand and decoratively designed.

The combination of the hour circle of dark blue mother-of-pearl with imprinted zodiac signs and blued hands and hour markers create a fascinating picture. On the back of the watch you can take pleasure in the masterful engravings.
The “Babylonian II” is limited to only 300 pieces.
