Pre-Basel 2015 – Fiona Krüger Celebration Skull19 March 2015
Celebration Skull is Fiona Krüger’s third timepiece, a poetic design inspired by the themes of time, mortality and the celebration of life.
The design for this edition takes its cues from the Mexican celebration of “Dia de Los Muertos”, the day of the dead.
Celebration Skull’s decorative 3-layer dial and case are hand-painted with coloured lacquer and superluminova.
Each colour used in the design of the watch has a specific meaning pertaining to the Dia de Los Muertos celebration, whilst the superluminova details glow in the dark to reveal an iconic skull symbol.
Celebration Skull is powered by a Swiss mechanical automatic movement with skeletonised black bridges and customised oscillating mass.
