de GRISOGONO celebrates life in the most irreverent and playful way, creating Crazy Skull, an exclusive bespoke art object that takes the best of both worlds and admirably showcases de GRISOGONO’s dual expertise.
This superlative creation plays with the fleeting nature of life and perfectly embodies the de GRISOGONO spirit. 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. Above all,it invites people to live life to its fullest.
By proposing an endearing character, de GRISOGONO introduces an original and unique design. The talking piece asserts the brand’s audacity and excellence.
Once again, by challenging the fundamentals of watchmaking and jewellery, by pushing boundaries and freeing himself of any constraints, Fawaz Gruosi demonstrates his ingenious and exuberant creativity; a non-traditional approach that speaks for itself.
Artfully designed and featuring rare and precious materials, Crazy Skull required almost a year of research and development and approximately 250 hours of intricate jewelry 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 stands out for its sumptuous, eye-catching and playful style.
Bespoke art object
By displaying time in an unconventional yet no less refined way, Crazy Skull perfectly embodies de GRISOGONO’s epicurean creativity.
The Crazy Skull is snow-set in white diamonds or rubies totalling approximately 23 carats and is embellished with a nose featuring a beautiful heart-cut white diamond of approximately 1.5 carats, which has been cut from a 3-carat square-cut raw stone.
As a tribute to the kinetic art, the passing of time elapses in dual time displays appearing through two magnetic eyes on which a spiraling setting of black and white diamonds subtly evokes movement.
Thanks to an intricate bespoke mechanism entirely devised and developed by the highly skilled de GRISOGONO master jewellers, the mouth is set with 7.70 carats of sparkling invisible-set white baguette-cut diamonds and mischievously reveals a precious tongue.
When the lower jaw is triggered, the Crazy Skull sticks out its tongue set with 66 pink sapphires or rubies.
“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.”, said Fawaz Gruosi.
Once again, de GRISOGONO challenges conventions and brings its mischievous and crazy twist to the world of high jewellery watches.
