1810 Skull Pocket Watch | Rare Gold Watch Studded with Diamonds

The watch we’ve got to show you today is a little different than usual. The watch we have today is what’s known as a Memento Mori, loosely translated as remember you must die. It is a phrase used to describe a whole range of objects that were designed to remind their owners that life was fleeting, like the passage of time.

Dating from around 1810, the Skull Wwatch is crafted in 18K gold and studded with diamonds set eyes and teet. Designed in the shape of a miniature skull with hinges, this pocket watch tells the time when you peel back the upper dome of the cranium.

Like all rare things in life, this 1810 Skull Pocket Watch doesn’t come cheap at $18,000 but you’ve got to agree that it’s a unique piece with a rich history.

Thanks Arsa/extravaganzi for this source of inspiration.
