Memento Mori, Carpe Diem: This exceptional mechanical timepiece created by Swiss watch brand STROM reminds us that we are mortals. Dressed in precious 18 carat gold case, this timepiece houses a historical mechanical hand wound movement that dates back to 1950s.
In this limited edition model, the mechanical hand-wound movement is entirely skeletonised by hand. The original bridges and wheels have been replaced by skulls and bones, all carved by hand, to form a striking composition. They are further exalted by a traditional guilloché on the dial side, produced with rose engine lathes that are over150 years old.
Their mysterious dance continues on the movement side. Nine-piece limited series for each execution, in red gold or in white gold. The hand-crafted case in 18k white gold or 18k red gold, is carved with skulls and bones.
