The Epitome of the Art of Watchmaking and Jewellery
An Exclusive Bespoke Art Object that Takes the Best of Both Worlds

The skull theme has been celebrated in contemporary art and fashion world for years.
Often perceived as a provocative symbol, it also has positive and thoughtful meanings such as change, courage, bravery, non-conformity and free-thinking.

“Skulls have been in fashion for years. Crazy Skull is a skull of its own, a technical prowess where every single detail makes its absolute perfection. Unique, precious, mischievous and bold, it stands as a happy face, conveying positivity and amusement. It dazzles with up to 45 carats of stones, from the skull to the tongue, some of them cut from raw stones to carve the nose and every single tooth. A limited edition, an Haute Couture timepiece that embodies the de Grisogono expertise and spirit.”
Fawaz Gruosi

Artfully designed and featuring rare and precious materials, Crazy Skull required almost a year of research and development and approximately 250 hours of intricate jewellery work in a subtle blend of know-how that lies within a close collaboration between skilled master watchmakers and top craftsmen such as gem-setters, goldsmiths, diamond-cutters and polishers.

This high-jewellery creation definitely stands out for its sumptuous, eye-catching and playful style. By displaying time in an unconventional yet no less refined way, Crazy Skull perfectly embodies de Grisogono’s epicurean creativity and identity.
