Bell & Ross BR 01 Burning Skull Tattoo _ PRE-Owned
Turn the watch over, and even the visible inscriptions on the case-back seem to be taken from a real tattoo, with the curved letters appearing to follow the contours of an arm. Its bold, edgy graphics recall the mythical fires of hell, and include numerous motifs symbolising destiny and mortality: a heart, a rose, a scythe and an hourglass, lurking within the decoration.
To create this effect, each line engraved into the steel is filled manually, using a stylus, with a black ink/varnish, just like a tattoo artist decorating the skin. During the process, the piece is fired several times in an oven to fix the lacquer. It is a long and painstaking job, and it takes the engraver/lacquerer several hours to finish each case. Once these stages are complete, the black lacquer underscores the Watch e™s graphic identity through the interplay of balance and contrast between light and dark tones.
The steady hand, expertise, experience and artistic mastery required for this work on the steel of the BR 01 BURNING SKULL closely match the skills of the tattoo artist.
