Memento Mori Death Watch

Dating back to 1810, the Memento Mori Death Watch is a particularly dark reminder—even more so than most timekeepers—of our inevitable demise. Designed in the shape of a miniature skull with hinges, this pocket watch tells the time when you peel back the upper dome of the cranium. Made from 18K gold, enamel and diamonds, the fusée skull sold for $16,000. Click images for detail.
