Fiona Krüger Petit Skull Series

The PETIT SKULL Series is Fiona Krüger’s fourth offering from her iconic Skull collection. For these exceptional watches, Fiona refers back to her Fine Art roots, using the classic guillochage technique as her chisel to sculpt radiant skull dials, instilling each of her watches with its own distinct character.

The PETIT SKULL Series comprises of 3 unique watches, each produced as a limited edition of 18 pieces. The watches are hand-made in Switzerland and powered by a fully skeletonised, automatic, Swiss mechanical movement with specially designed oscillating mass.

Each of the PETIT SKULL’s intricate 9-piece dials are impeccably hand-finished and produced in partnership with Kari Voutilainen’s dial factory, Comblémine.

The dial’s first layer, a polished base plate, acts as a crisp frame around the eyes, nose and mouth.

The second layer comprises of 6 individually guilloche and coloured pieces, beautifully reflect light to reveal the elegant rhythm of the guillochage. Every guilloché pattern 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, punctuated by hand-polished black 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.
