Fiona Krüger’s Colorful Celebration Skull Watch Celebrates Mexico’s Day Of The Dead Festival

Fiona Krüger Celebration Skull Watch
 

Halloween, All Souls’ Day and the Day of the Dead celebrations in Mexico are just a couple of weeks away. I guess this gives us the perfect excuse to talk about skulls, bones, and death and put a luxury spin while doing it. We are only going to look at skulls, so don’t panic. Fiona Krüger is not a familiar luxury watch brand, and many of us haven’t even heard the name – until today. And to learn that a 30-year old woman is behind the brand is even more shocking. But change is good. From the house of Krüger, we get this colorful skeletonized limited edition – the Celebration Skull Watch.

Let’s have quick look here before you jump over to Krüger web site. Each colorful piece is hand-made in Switzerland. This is not a small watch and all that real estate is crucial to housing intricate dial artwork. It comes in a hand-polished stainless steel case that measures 57.4L x 41.3W x 10.9 thick (mm). The Swiss-made skeletonized TT738 automatic movement feature PVD coated bridges, engravings, and a custom-made date wheel. Workings of the movement and decorative oscillating mass are visible from the sapphire crystal back.

Now to the fun part – the colorful 3-layer dial. It has hand-painted layers decorated with 7 specially selected colored lacquers and superluminova. The dial and movement feature art and color inspired by Mexico’s Day of the Dead festival. A wheel with date function located at 12 o’clock and superluminova décor blue steel hands are other highlights. Thanks to superluminova this sure does glow in the dark – be very afraid when that happens.

A colorful dial deserves a colorful strap, it comes with a yellow strap as standard but they also threw in a second strap as a gesture of goodwill. The Celebration Skull Watch is limited to just 24 pieces and costs CHF 28,800 (about $29,500.). If you want to go all technical visit here and to buy it visit here.
