Memento Mori: quick update

Hi everyone,

Just a quick note to let you know how things are going. I had a very constructive meeting about the piece last week, which is great, but confirms that I may have to change the way I approach the project. Not in terms of how the piece looks, but more from the business side to make sure I can deliver the right product! I’m looking to team up with a small watch company who would be able to help me not just with making the piece but also with the client service side.

This means it may take a little longer until the piece is available as it will mean more meetings (not ideal!) but the good news is it means when the piece is ready it will be of the best quality and the service will match!

As promised, I will keep posting updates as they come. A BIG thank you to everyone who has liked this facebook page and everyone who is interested in the watch. Your interest is also a key part in my getting the piece made as quickly as possible, so thank you for your support (and patience!!). Guaranteed it wil be worth the wait.

xx

Memento Mori: watch update

Memento Mori: watch update

Dear ‘Memento Mori’ watch enthusiasts,

I’ve received a lot of emails from people asking about the Memento Mori watch, when it will be available and how much it will be. I am working on the production of the piece at the moment to take it from the ‘prototype’ stage to a real product. As I only had 2 months to make the prototype there are some details which aren’t quite perfect, and I want to make sure the piece is impeccably finished before I sell it.

I’m working with a movement engineer to see if I can integrate the ‘skull’ more into the movement allowing us to see more of the movement’s mechanisms. I’m also working to re-design the case to make sure it is water and air tight (though it will look the same!). The price and number of watches which will be made will be based on how much work is involved and how expensive it is to produce, which I will find out over the coming months and let you know.

All of these things take time and a lot of fact-finding first, so it may take a few months. But I am working with some great people and guarantee it will be worth the wait!

I will post more news and updates as they come on here and link them to the Fiona Krüger facebook page, so you can keep up with what’s happening with the watch and the other projects I am working on.

Thank you again to everyone who took the time to mail me. I have’t taken this for granted and very much appreciate all the nice comments which were sent. It’s always nice to know you are doing something right!!

Cheers,
Fiona
