The BR 01 Laughing Skull pays tribute to them all.
They often take the form of a Jaquemart, an animated mechanised figure of a person, fitted to a church clock tower to strike the hours on a bell. The original Laughing Skull concept is therefore a kind of direct descendant of these elegant animation systems.
In the extension of the four bones, the four bridges secure the main plate to the case and come together to form a single assembly floating in the centre of the watch.
The sword-shaped hands are similar to those on the earlier Skull collections, but on this model they are skeletonised and coated in SuperLuminova.
