Inspiration

Overview

The Petit Skull is produced as a limited edition of 18 pieces. The watches are hand-made in Switzerland and powered by a fully skeletonised, automatic mechanical movement with specially designed oscillating mass.

The intricate nine-piece dial is impeccably hand-finished, with each colour variant within the series showcasing a separate guilloché pattern. Starting with the first layer, a polished base plate is used, which acts as a crisp frame around the eyes, nose and mouth. The second layer comprises six individually guilloché and coloured pieces, beautifully reflecting light to reveal the elegant rhythm of the guillochage. Every guilloché pattern has been painstakingly chosen and positioned on each piece of the dial, recessing the eyes and jaw and opening the forehead and cheeks, as would a sculptor carving a portrait.

The 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 of finishing is a softly shotblasted outline, punctuated by polished black studs to mark the hours. Through the Petit Skull’s eyes, the moving balance wheel and delicate mainspring of the movement can be seen, bringing the watch to life.


Inspiration

For the exceptional Petit Skull, Fiona refers back to her Fine Art roots, using the classic guillochage technique as her chisel to sculpt her radiant skull dials, instilling each of her watches with its own distinct character.
