1 De Grisogono Crazy Skull Collection
The way in which the 890 rubies have been set in the multidimensional case of de Grisogono’s ladies Crazy Skul timepiece is identical to that of a human skull; with it’s emaciated cheek bones, fattened by a gem setting technique which is similar to that of the appearance of solidified lava. Staring at us inside the skull’s aghast eye sockets is a dual time display with black lacquered dials. Please click here for more…
2 HYT Skull Watch Collection
While the watch doesn’t have any, eyebrows were raised in Janurary when Vincent Perriard and his team unveiled the HYT Skull, a watch that looks like it belongs on Iron Man’s wrist. It’s the first watch in the collection that completely hides the movement on the dial side, but more importantly it does away with the minutes indication. The HYT Skull Green Eye in titanium limited to 50 pieces, and the HYT Skull Red Eye in rose gold and titanium limited to just 25 pieces.

The only watch in our list without the word ‘skull’ in its name, it hides this memento mori inside the dial. A collection for ladies, the Broderie is housed inside the iconic Big Bang case measuring 41mm.

The result is a timepiece that defies comformity and reminds us that everything in life has an end, so we might as well make the most of it. The Badass is just that, and we love it!
