NORTH SHORE – PASSION FOR INTENSITY
FUSION OF ELEMENTS – BOLD – INTENSE – SOPHISTICATED
The founders of SCALFARO – brothers Alexander and Dominik Kuhnle – have devoted their skills to creating timepieces that reflect their ideas of “Contemporary Luxury”: timepieces that unite dynamism, freshness and masculinity with elegance, refinement and savoir vivre.
True to this guideline they present their latest development: NORTH SHORE – a dashing line of timekeepers combining the rough beauty of the giant waves hitting Hawaii’s northern coastline with the refined elegance of the lavish estates on Long Island – a symbiosis of aggressiveness, elegance and culture.
This line represents a tribute to the inspiring diversity, energy and beauty of nature.
NORTH SHORE, OAHU (HAWAII)
The NORTH SHORE of Oahu (Hawaii) is famous for its large surf including waves with faces over 15m (50ft) high. These giant waves attract the world’s most daring big wave surfers. The overwhelming mixture of beauty and energy created by the force of the elements in this part of the world hasn’t failed to intrigue the brothers behind SCALFARO. There is no other place on earth where waves with a comparable size and consistency can be found. Also, there is no other surf culture that can match the surfing community of Hawaii when it comes to tradition, courage and aggressiveness. The image of a surfer riding the tube of a giant wave is synonymous with the NORTH SHORE of Oahu.
NORTH SHORE, LONG ISLAND (NEW YORK)
For many years, Alexander and Dominik Kuhnle have been fascinated by the history and charming atmosphere of the NORTH SHORE of Long Island, also known as the Gold Coast of America. This famed stretch of land close to New York is home to some of the most elegant and opulent estates from the beginning of the 20th century. The Roaring Twenties roared no louder anywhere else than here and inspired F. Scott Fitzgerald’s “The great Gatsby”. Some legendary American personalities like William K. Vanderbilt, Harry P. Whitney, Otto Kahn and J.P. Morgan have not only left their mark on the NORTH SHORE, but have also influenced the whole of American society. Today, their grand estates – spectacularly integrated into the coastal environment of the NORTH SHORE – stand as proud reminders of the glory and extravaganza of the halcyon days before the Depression of the early 1930’s.
NORTH SHORE is a unique line of timepieces inspired by two worlds: Long Island and Hawaii. Merging the fabulous and the functional, it radiates not only with elegance and beauty, but also with aggressiveness and boldness.
TECHNICAL PERFECTION & CLEAR DESIGN
The NORTH SHORE’s highly complex and luxuriously finished watch cases demonstrate the independent character of these timepieces in an impressive way. Manufactured with the help of high-tech machinery, controlled and ultimately polished by hand, the numerous single components of each case are finally put together to result in a masterpiece of modern engineering.
Unique shape, sophisticated facets, refined finishing, important weight and complexity of construction result in the characteristic, high-profile appearance of a SCALFARO timepiece.
The NORTH SHORE’s clear and purist design is complemented by a solid rotating bezel with six markers that are individually screwed-on via the exclusive ScalfaScrews.
The perfect polishing of the various surfaces and the resulting interplay of matt and shiny surfaces in combination with the numerous facets of the case create a spectacular effect similar to the sparkle of a diamond.
The dials are decorated with a circular Guilloché pattern and hand-set luminous hour markers. The face of a NORTH SHORE unites clear readability and sophisticated manufacturing techniques.
Also, the “red element“ – typical of each SCALFARO timepiece and symbolizing the brand’s active and young spirit – can be found on the dial, bezel and leather strap.
The technique and aesthetics of mechanical timekeeping have been a constant fascination for SCALFARO’s founders. To allow other watch lovers to enjoy the beauty of SCALFARO’s finely decorated Swiss mechanical movements, they chose to equip their timepieces with solid see-through case backs including a sapphire crystal.
NORTH SHORE not only demonstrates its sporty, and at the same time sophisticated character in design, construction and quality, but also in its flawless technical features: multi-level case architecture, anti-reflective sapphire crystal, meticulously finished Swiss mechanical movement, screw-down crown, fluorescent hands, Guilloché dial with hand-applied hour markers, transparent sapphire crystal case back, ScalfaScrews, water-resistance to 300m/1000ft (chronographs 100m/330ft), case diameter 43.5mm (1.7in), unidirectional rotating bezel with 6 screwed-on markers, facet-oriented design with interplay of matt and shiny surfaces…
NORTH SHORE – BOLD, INTENSE AND SOPHISTICATED
When asked for what kind of person they created the NORTHSHORE, Alexander and Dominik Kuhnle explain: “We created this timepiece for a person leading an intense and active life; someone who is unwilling to sacrifice aesthetics and quality for the sake of pure functionality. This could be an active city person, an adventurous globetrotter or even a big wave surfer – all those who seek the intense feeling of life. NORTH SHORE is bold and individualistic, in short: A MAN’S WATCH!”
