Takashi Murakami x Hajime Asaoka's “Death Takes No Bribe” Watch!

Designed by iconic modern artist Takashi Murakami and executed as a tourbillon movement timepiece by Hajime Asaoka, the "Death Takes No Bribe" watch over three years to produce. Featuring those classic Murakami flowers and skulls upon it's face, the watch is a gorgeous and functional work of art.
Asaoka will premiere the watch at the Academie Horlogere des Createurs Independants (AHCI)'s 2013 watch fair in Basel, Switzerland. The expected price is in excess of $75,000.
