Beyond its uncommon shape (a signature of the Fiona Krüger brand), the Vanitas wall clock truly impresses with its vivid interior color profile. The result of a collaboration between namesake watchmaker Fiona Krüger and historic manufacturer L’Epée 1839, the Vanitas is an engineering feat with a movement that matches the case (with an escapement appearing as the third eye). As time passes—with the piece offering more than 35 days running time before needing to be wound—the mouth changes and the lips part. This iteration (there’s also an all-black version) is limited to 50 pieces.
