The skull is laden with symbolism. It reminds us that life is precious. No wonder they have been popular as motifs on watches.
Skulls have been a part of the DNA of Speake-Marin for more than 10 years. But, this is the first time that the Swiss brand combines on a single watch a minute repeater carillon, a tourbillon and an animation of the dial. At the SIHH 2017, the brand launched two extraordinary watches to celebrate its first participation to the SIHH.
Crazy Skulls is not only a watch…it is a story. Two souls….two skulls…. linked through the death by a heart! The heart is visible in-between the two skulls. A tourbillon beats in the heart…and it also hides also a minute repeater. When the slider is activated, the minute repeater carillon begins to ring and a mechanism separates the two skulls to reveal the tourbillon!
Well, hearts have to come together eventually! The numerals of the 12 fall apart on the dial and transcribe the despair of the two lovers, but as the time is sounded by the hammers striking the 3 gongs, the heart is reunited and the roman numerals are reconstructed to their former glory!
