Soon, Alexander Shorokhov realized that only selling the watches “Poljot“ is not enough for him. Quickly he set himself a new target: to produce mechanical watches under a new name and with higher standards of workmanship, quality and design.
Together with a team of specialized watch makers he opened a small manufactory in order to create his first own watch collection. The new patented brand „Poljot-International“ was born.
He produced watches for the Russian Patriarch Alexius-II, the first Russian president Michail Gorbatshov and the Russian cosmonaut Leonov. The watch model “Polar Bear“ even traveled to the North Pole with the icebreaker “Yamal“.
During this period, Alexander Shorokhov began to refine the movements of his watches. Special polishing, gold plating of bridges and the application of polished or blued screws became a trademark of Shorokhovs‘ watches. As early as 1995 he used see-through glass for the watch backs in order to make the beauty of the movements visible.
