Part of a line of memento mori-inspired watches, the Bell & Ross BR 01 Laughing Skull is an unusual timepiece with a beautifully detailed construction.

The case is a 46 mm piece made of micro-blasted steel with “Clou de Paris” design and a minimalist dial (displays hours and minutes, no markings) that highlights applique metal skull and skeletonized Superluminova-filled hour and minute hands. Underneath the anti-reflective sapphire crystal ticks a BR-CAL.206 automaton mechanical movement that, when hand-wound, makes the skull move its jaw up and down as if it’s laughing. Water-resistance is 100 meters and each watch comes with a brown alligator and black rubber strap.
