I Would Like More Info on This Item

Fiona Krüger’s joyful CELEBRATION SKULL in Black is inspired by
the themes of time, mortality and the celebration of life. The
design for this edition takes its cues from 14th and 17th Century
skull horology, the Mexican celebration of Dia de Los Muertos
and beautifully decorated skeleton movements found in today’s
luxury watches. It features a hand decorated 3 layer dial finished with hand polishing PVD coating, perlage, hand-painted lacquer and superluminova decorative details in a matte black PVD coated stainless steel case.

Ref. FKST A

Each colour used in the design of the Celebration Skull has a specific meaning pertaining to the Dia de Los Muertos celebration - the lacquers used in the hand-painting of the decoration were specially selected for this design. The white details are painted in Superluminova and glow in the dark to reveal an iconic skull symbol. T

Blue: Trust
