Mr.Jones Watches has just released this special edition of their Last Laugh Watch:
The time on this watch is displayed on the skull's teeth - the upper jaw shows the hours and the lower the minutes. The watch is a link to the tradition of the memento mori - an object designed to remind us that life is brief and we should seize the moment while we're here.
This new version of The Last Laugh watch from Mr. Jones Watches features specially commissioned artwork by British Tattoo Artist Adrian Willard, “the design comes from the Mexican Day of the Dead festival. The festival focuses on gathering to remember friends and family who have died. Many gifts and offerings are handed out including sugar skulls that are given to both the living and the dead. It has become a very popular image in the tattoo world over the years and has replaced the regular skull in the mainstream tattoo trends.”
