richard mille nadal Fiona Krüger Timepieces is an Independent watch brand, differentiated by an artistic approach to haute horlogerie through the integration of art with Swiss made craftsmanship and technology. The brand was established by Fiona Krüger in 2013.
Fiona Krüger is a designer with a background in fine art and product design. Krüger grew up in a multicultural environment, having lived in France, Mexico, Brazil and Scotland. Following her university studies in Scotland she lived in South Africa, where she began her creative career, before moving to Switzerland in 2010 to further her education.The synonymous themes of “time” and “mortality”, which have played an important role in watchmaking since the 1400’s, inspired Fiona to develop her iconic SKULL collection, launched in 2013.
Te skull itself is an internationally recognised symbol, engrained in the history of watchmaking. Drawing inspiration from the 17th century skull watch of Mary Queen of Scots, the Mexican celebration of Dia de Los Muertos and beautifully decorated skeleton movements found in today’s luxury watches. Fiona’s artistic re-interpretation of the skull symbol has resulted in a unique timepiece collection which transcends cultural divides, inspired by the rich heritage of horological history and the Arts.
Collaboration is key to Fiona’s work. She has a passion for craftsmanship and believes finding the right people to produce her watches is as important as the design itself. Fiona partners with suppliers and artisans who are looking for a distinctive, personal and poetic approach to watch design, each one a leader in their specific discipline and keen to push the boundaries of this traditional industry. All of Fiona’s production partners are based in Switzerland – the heart of the watchmaking industry. urwerk replica
Launched in June 2018, Fiona Krüger’s second collection of timepieces is inspired by the laws of physics which dictate that, as time passes, things always move from a state of order towards a state of disorder or chaos, and never the reverse.
Entropy I watch is named after the concept of entropy used in physics to explain the second law of Thermodynamics, and subsequently the passing of time. The second law of thermodynamics says that entropy always increases with time. Everyone has an intuitive understanding that time moves forward, that broken glass will not un-shatter, spilled milk will not un-spill. The scientific explanation of this is a concept called entropy, which explains that things always go from a state of order towards a state of disorder or chaos, but never the reverse.The heart of Fiona Krüger’s Chaos collection is her Chaos movement, developed with Geneva based movement manufacturer Agenhor exclusively for her brand. Developing her own movement allowed Fiona the opportunity to create a dynamic mechanical drawing, fully integrating the aesthetic and mechanical aspects of her designs. The mechanism has been designed mid-explosion, as a snapshot of time passing. This intricate manual wind movement has a 50 hour power reserve.
A passion for hand-made objects, tradition and craftsmanship are at the core of her work, coupled with her broad-minded view of the world thanks to her international upbringing. This combination informs Krüger’s design practice, ultimately leading her to design her first watch, the Skull, as part of her Masters in 2010 (Masters of advanced studies in design for the luxury industry at ECAL in Switzerland). breitling replica
hublot replica The watches are hand-made in Switzerland and powered by a fully skeletonised, automatic, Swiss mechanical movement with specially designed oscillating mass. This unique design is only produced to order, carefully crafted by the best manufacturers in Switzerland, especially for Fiona’s clients.Each of the PETIT SKULL’s intricate 9-piece dials are impeccably hand finished; starting with the first layer, a polished base plate with black finishing, which acts as a crisp frame around the eyes, nose and mouth. Te second layer comprises of 6 individually guilloché and coloured pieces, beautifully reflecting light to reveal the elegant rhythm of the guillochage.
The Skull is the ultimate symbol of life, death and human experience – as such it has played a key role in both Horological History and Art History. Through Fiona Krüger’s artistic approach to Haute Horlogerie and L’Epée’s know-how, the Skull has been re-interpreted into a mechanical Vanitas painting for the 21st Century.
A Vanitas is a still life artwork which includes various symbolic objects to remind the viewer of the transience of life. This was an important and popular genre of painting in the 1600’s and includes symbols like skulls and extinguished candles.
Engineered and crafted by L’Epée 1839, the Vanitas clock reminds you to celebrate life. The hours and minutes are shown by the clock’s hands, and a power reserve indicator is integrated into the mouth of the skull. As Vanitas loses power it starts to yawn, indicating it needs to be wound up. Though with a 35-day power-reserve, this monthly ritual will give you a moment to stop and take stock of the time you have.“Eternity” and “Enigma” – the new vibrant offerings from Fiona Krüger‘s Petit Skull series- combine intricate design, beautiful colours, and history, in delicately hand-crafted Swiss watches. audemars piguet replica
Every guilloche patern was painstakingly chosen and positioned on each piece of the dial, recessing the eyes and jaw and opening up the forehead and cheeks, as would a sculptor carving a portrait. Te teeth are finished with perlage and rhodium plating to echo the bridges of the skeletonised movement, which can be seen through the eyes and nose of the Skull. The final layer is a softly shot-blasted outline with black finishing, punctuated by vivid green studs to mark the hours.
BLACK SKULL is Fiona Krüger’s second time piece, a graphic re-design of her iconic SKULL watch. The design is inspired by the 17th century skull watch of Mary Queen of Scots, the Mexican celebration of Dia de Los Muertos and beautifully decorated skeleton movements found in today’s luxury watches.This watch is produced as a limited edition of 12 pieces; each piece is hand-made in Switzerland and powered by a Swiss mechanical manual-wind movement with a 5-day power-reserve and custom black bridges.BLACK SKULL’s hand-decorated 3-layer dial mirrors the aesthetics of the movement underneath, highlighting the mechanical aspect of the watch. Te decorative details are hand-painted in superluminova and are found on each layer of the dial and the skeletonised hands, bringing the BLACK SKULL to life in the dark.Encased in a hand-polished stainless steel skull shaped case with black PVD coating, the watch is complimented by a premium hand-made leather wrist-band. popular tag heuer replica watches
Most mechanical watch movements are conceived to be as compact as possible, often resulting in a round shape. Krüger wanted to stretch out her movement, as though it was exploding, and in doing so reveal as many of the beautiful components as she could. The gear train stretches out the length of the mechanism, displaying each wheel on the path towards the erupting balance wheel. The shattered hour and minute wheels have been pushed off-centre and the bursting barrel of the main-spring is visible through the exploding main plate and bridges in the top right of the movement. As you wind up your watch the barrel turns, animating the eruption. Each distinctive section of the beautifully finished movement is delicately framed by various size explosions, building up in layers from the movement’s bridges to the main-plate. watchgetluxury.com
