Takashi Murakami, the artist whose beautifully animated work has been the subject of infinite fine arts discussions, teamed up with independent Japanese watchmaker Hajime Asaoka for a custom watch. Entitled “Death Takes No Bribe,” the tourbillon movement timepiece is the result of over three years of meticulous planning and design. Featuring flower and skull imagery in Murakami’s trademark style, the watch is an exercise in dark humor–it observes the temporality of life in both the engraved face and the watch’s form. Asaoka will premiere the watch at the Academie Horlogere des Createurs Independants’ (AHCI) 2013 watch fair in Basel, Switzerland.
