Fiona Krüger is a designer working on projects ranging from the intricacy and precision of watch design to more conceptual sculptural installations.
A passion for hand-made objects, tradition and craftsmanship are at the core of her work.
“Memento Mori” watch, diploma project for the MAS LUXE at ECAL , reinterprets the theme of mortality in horlogery, drawing inspiration from the 17th century skull watch of Mary Queen of Scotts, Mexican Dia de Los Muertos decoration and beautifully decorated skeleton movements found in today’s luxury watches.
The case is fashioned from solid silver and mineral hand cut glass and is engraved by hand as well, inside of the watch is a Swiss ETA 2824-2 automatic movement.
Each piece is decorated and assembled by hand resulting in a unique timepiece rich in tradition, know how and symbolism.
