The Horophile has reimagined the Raketa Avant-Garde in his distinctive violet hue, paying homage to the visionary Russian modern artists of the late 19th and early 20th century.
The Russian Avant-Garde movement has had an immeasurable and undeniable influence on the realm of contemporary art. Drawing inspiration from Malevich’s suprematism, Lissitzky’s constructivism, and Kandinsky’s abstraction, the Raketa Avant-Garde exemplifies the exceptional nature of the Russian avant-garde art movement and its enduring relevance.
A masterpiece in perpetual motion, the Raketa Avant-Garde mesmerizes with its interplay of geometric shapes and vibrant colors, perpetually transforming its composition with the passage of time and the interplay of light and shadow. The juxtaposition of radiant luminescent orange and metallic violet imparts an unexpected and electrifying quality to this wearable work of art.
True to its origins
As with all Raketa timepieces, the Avant-Garde is driven by an automatic movement meticulously crafted and produced at the esteemed Raketa Watch Factory in Saint Petersburg. For this special edition, the winding rotor has been adorned in a regal purple shade, while the bridges are embellished with an Avant-Garde motif reflecting the same colors as the dial.
Limited to a mere 50 pieces, the Raketa x The Horophile Avant-Garde Limited Edition comes accompanied by a black leather strap and an orange leather strap, allowing for versatile and stylish options when adorning this extraordinary timepiece.
