In Memoriam HR Giger
HR Giger (5 February 1940 – 12 May 2014), who won an Oscar for his work on Alien, deserves to be counted amongst the greatest of all Swiss artists. This truly one-of-a-kind timepiece was the last project on which he collaborated with Daniel Strom. Its case features heads and skull parts taken from Giger’s human/machine figure Biomechanoid, while the dial forms a spectacular relief in silver that is modelled after one of the artist’s most famous works. This wristwatch wields a primeval, hypnotic power that is fully unleashed when viewed up close and has a unique feel that makes you want to grasp it and touch it again and again in new and exciting ways.
Handmade. Silver version available in a limited edition of 99 watches. Made in Switzerland.
