And the movement is something else again!
In their own words -
For the movement a Russian caliber 3105.Poljot is used, which is derived from the Swiss Valjoux caliber 7734, but without chronograph function. The movement is completely overhauled, re-oiled, adjusted and tested at the "Alexander Shorokhoff" watch manufacture. The bridges, as always with "Alexander Shorokhoff" watches, are hand-engraved or cloud-cut, and the screws are polished and blued. This beauty can be viewed through the sapphire crystal back. These movements are no longer reproduced today. However, the "Alexander Shorokhoff" watch manufactory has secured a limited quantity and produces this series in a small limited number.

The case is available in a stainless steel as well as a blued finish -
