Memento Mori

You may or may not know, I studied Product Design at university.  Aside from my obsession with buying new make up, and various moisturisers, I love design and here comes my first design post.  If you follow me on Twitter, you may have already seen what I am about to write about.  If not, prepare yourself as I am going to expose you to something bloody gorgeous...

 

This is the Memento Mori watch designed by Fiona Krüger.  I have literally been stalking this since I saw it back in 2011, watching it go from the initial prototype and through the developmental stages; I am so excited that it is finally available to buy.  I won't kid myself, this is probably the most expensive watch I've ever laid eyes on as it's all hand decorated and assembled by hand.  (I'm literally talking around £16,000...)  If I ever win the lottery, or manage to get a bloody good job, this is going to be the first thing that I buy. 
 
What do you think of this watch?  Has it made it onto your wish list?
