The watch comes with CERTIFICATE OF AUTHENTICITY. A link to the tradition of the memento mori – an object designed to remind us that life is brief and that we should seize the moment while we are here. Since the beginning of time, the skull is been used as a symbol of mortality, victory, the ultimate Memento Mori. The skull represented the contemplation of eternity. In Elizabethan England, it was an emblem of bawds, rakes and sexual adventure. Its a symbol men, in particular, have always loved to paint, carve, cast, and wear.
