The Raketa Avant-Garde has been reimagined by The Horophile in his signature violet color, as a modern tribute to the visionary Russian modern artists of the late 19th and early 20th century.

The Russian Avant-Garde movement has had an immeasurable and irrefutable impact on the world of modern art. With influences ranging from the suprematism of Malevich, the constructivism of Lissitzky and the abstraction of Kandinsky, the Raketa Avant-Garde highlights just how singular the Russian avant-garde art movement was and how relevant it remains.

A work of art in ceaseless motion, the Raketa Avant-Garde offers a play of geometric forms and striking colors that are constantly morphing in composition with the passage of time and the shift between light and dark. The contrast of bright luminescent orange and metallic violet adds an unexpected and electric edge to this piece of wearable art.

Like all Raketa watches, the Avant-Garde is powered by an automatic movement entirely designed and produced at the Raketa Watch Factory in Saint Petersburg. For this special edition, the winding rotor has been finished in a purple color, while the bridges are printed with an Avant-Garde motif in the same colors as the dial.

Limited to 50 pieces, the Raketa x The Horophile Avant-Garde Limited Edition is delivered with a black leather strap as well as an orange leather strap.
