Prolific contemporary Japanese artist, Takashi Murakami collaborates with independent watchmaker Hajime Asaoka to bring a custom watch. Entitled “Death Takes No Bribe,” the custom watch is a result after meticulous planning and designing for over three years. It features a tourbillion movement with skull imagery in Murakami’s trademark style. In a twisted dark humor the watch observes life temporarily in the watch’s engraved face and form. The watch will make its debut in Basel, Switzerland at the 2013 Academie Horlogere des Createurs Independants’ (AHCI) watch fair.
