Fiona Krüger's Unusual Watches "Memento Mori"

unusual watches

Fiona Krüger, a recent graduate of ECAL/university of arts and design lausanne from the master in luxury industry and design has created unusual watches called “Memento Mori” for her thesis project. The timepiece reinterprets the theme of mortality in watch-making. The luxury watch appreciates both the mexican imagery of dia de los muertos and the 17th century watch of mary queen of scotts with a human skull detailed with decorative, gold metalwork. The watch case is literally shaped like a skull, fashioned from solid silver and mineral hand cut glass and is engraved by hand. The dial is made from gold and rhodium plated brass which has been laser cut and engraved. Blued steel hands of the clock move by a ETA 2824 mechanism over the skull watch face. “Momento Mori” is fastened to one’s wrist by a blued calf leather band with a silver buckle. Take a look!
