Unusual Watches “Memento Mori” by Fiona Krüger

 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.

High-Complexity Harry Winston Opus 3 Watch

15

Are you one of the 50 unlucky lucky people who pre-bought the Harry Winston Opus 3 several years ago?  If you haven’t given up on it yet, then good for you.  The high-complexity luxury timepiece with the crazy mechanical design is actually real now.

Seven years in the making, Vianney Halter’s masterpiece encountered multiple problems during the creation of the actual prototype.  The biggest stumbling block?  It required unusual amounts of power to get all of the discs (see it without the case cover below) in the assembly to move.

The Harry Winston Opus 3 is a mainspring-style watch with a main display consisting of six holes, each showing one digit.   You read it from top to bottom, with the left column reading the hours in 24-hour convention, the middle column displaying the day of the month and the rightmost column showing the minutes.  While the time-telling seems simple enough, the mechanism that enabled that is a long ways from uninvolved.
