After Black, Blue and Silver editions of her PETIT SKULL Series watch collection, Fiona Krüger has created a new version, the Petit Skull Green/Black, a made to order edition featuring a mate black case framing a vibrant green dial.
The watches are hand-made in Switzerland and powered by a fully skeletonised, automatic, Swiss mechanical movement with specially designed oscillating mass. This unique design is only produced to order, carefully crafted by the best manufacturers in Switzerland, especially for Fiona’s clients.
Each of the PETIT SKULL’s intricate 9-piece dials are impeccably hand finished; starting with the first layer, a polished base plate with black finishing, which acts as a crisp frame around the eyes, nose and mouth. Te second layer comprises of 6 individually guilloché and coloured pieces, beautifully reflecting light to reveal the elegant rhythm of the guillochage.
Every guilloche patern was painstakingly chosen and positioned on each piece of the dial, recessing the eyes and jaw and opening up the forehead and cheeks, as would a sculptor carving a portrait. Te teeth are finished with perlage and rhodium plating to echo the bridges of the skeletonised movement, which can be seen through the eyes and nose of the Skull. The final layer is a softly shot-blasted outline with black finishing, punctuated by vivid green studs to mark the hours.
Through the PETIT SKULLS’ eyes, the moving balance wheel and delicate mainspring of the movement can be seen, which, when wound up, bring the watches to life.
