The skull is drawn from the Hans Holbein painting The Ambassadors. On the painting the skull appears distorted and elongated. When the painting is viewed from an acute angle the image resolves into the correct perspective. The effect is startling, with the skull appearing to float above the surface of the painting. This watch is intended as a homage to Holbein - the sudden appearance of the skull on the watch has the same sense of jolting, suprise.
The watch comes in a MJW presentation box, with specially commissioned design by artist and illustrator Camilla Meijer.
