The “Lucky 8” is a tribute to the lucky number 8 from the Chinese culture many people attribute meaning to.
A central feature of this watch design is a special emphasis on the date. The date numeral appears in the window highlighted in yellow, across from the respective day of the month. These markers are located on a specially provided inner ring underneath the dial.
Three days of the month were deliberately accentuated on the display: The 8, 21 and 31. The 21 represents luck, particularly when thinking of Black Jack and actually refers to the number 8. It emphasizes double luck in China. That is why the watch’s name is “Lucky 8”. The 31st calendar day occurs exactly 7 times a year. That’s why its spot is marked with a question mark on the outer dial. Bearing that in mind will help you reset the date as needed.
The large 60 on the dial and the hand-engraved movement are symbols of nearly every “Alexander Shorokhoff” watch. When you turn the watch around, the sapphire glass bottom gives you a beautiful view of the play of the interlocking refined gears, levers, bridges and blued screws. It is the vintage movement 2614.Poljot, whose production was discontinued in 1999. This model was manufactured with a limitation of 100 pieces.
