A skull appears on this watch every time the hour and minute hand align (once every hour). The remainder of the time the image is a mix of colors and shapes. The skull comes from a Hans Holbein painting called "the Ambassadors." When (and only when) the painting is viewed from a certain angle the skull suddenly appears. The watch is a link to the tradition of the memento mori—an object designed to remind us that life is brief and we should seize it while we are here.
The watch comes in a MJW presentation box, with specially commissioned artwork by artist and illustrator Camilla Meijer.
