Looking like a Mexican “Day of the Dead special” (Dia de Los Muertos), this mechanical skull-shaped watch is full of personality and design talent.
Memento Mori reinterprets the theme of mortality in horlogery, drawing inspiration from the 17th century skull watch of Mary Queen of Scotts, Mexican Dia de Los Muertos decoration and beautifully decorated skeleton movements found in today’s luxury watches.
This contemporary time piece highlights the value of watchmaking by drawing our attention to the watch movement. The pieces of the movement make up the form of a skull. Each piece is decorated and assembled by hand resulting in a unique timepiece rich in tradition, know how and symbolism.
