The decadent watch "Momento Mori" by Fiona Kruger is skull-faced and spooky. Despite of its scary pop culture-inspired theme, this timepiece is the epitome of luxury. Kruger, a recent ECAL art university graduate created the dynamically designed piece as her final thesis projects.

The complex and intricate watch combines traditional mexican imagery of death along with the precise quality associated with the traditional art of watch making. A human skull is recreated and detailed with ornate gold metalwork. The intricate layering of delicate metals and its beautifully shaped back face make this piece stunning and rich.

The watch's case is made of solid silver and hand cut glass with a gold dial. The watch is hand-engraved and laser cut with an impressive mechanical system that one can appreciate. The "Momento Mori" by Fiona Kruger luxury timepiece is a lush twist on a cult classic.
