Fiona Krüger, known for her elegant wristwatch designs, has partnered alongside clockmaker L’Epée 1839 for a colorful clock with a skull motif. The face of the skull changes as time passes through the positions of the hands, as well as the rotation of the mainspring barrels. The jaw acts as a power reserve indicator to inform owners that it needs to be winded up to function. The name Vanitas draws influence from a genre of painting from the Netherlands and Flanders during the 16th and 17th century.

The Vanitas clocks will be available in a multicolored color-scheme inspired from sugar skulls used in the Mexican Day of The Dead; and a black PVD-coated brass with a white silkscreen design superimposed. Both are limited editions of 50 pieces and are priced at €30,000 EUR (approximately $43,700 USD).
