Presenting in a limited edition of 100 pieces in Black Steel with Titanium components, the CVSTOS Inkvaders Jetliner Skull was designed and produced in collaboration with Christian Nguyen, multitalented artist best known for his tattoo art. Written on the rehaut is “INKVADERS” the name of the studio founded by Nguyen and where most of his work, when not travelling for temporary residences in other studios, is done.
In Christian Nguyen’s work, especially in his more personal and artistic work the skull as always been a central subject. The Skull dial hand designed and then is produced in polished steel to sublimate its complexity and details. The movement has been black plasma coated giving it a black colour and as such highlighting the dial and increasing its legibility.

Fascinated by tattoos from an early age he began his professional career in 1992 and hasn’t stopped since.
