Fiona Krüger is a designer with a background in both Fine Art and Product Design. A passion for hand-made objects, tradition and craftsmanship are at the core of her work, which is why, upon completion of her Masters of Advanced Studies in Design for the Luxury Industry at ECAL in Switzerland, she decided to develop her own time-piece: the SKULL watch.
Her studies in Switzerland allowed her to experience first hand the world of Haute Horlogerie, and she was notably inspired by her visits to the Audemars Piguet Manufacture and the Patek Philippe Museum’s Antique watch collection. Fiona was captivated by the opportunity to bring together the mechanical, the hand-made and her love of Art through fine watchmaking.
Setting up Fiona Krüger Timepieces in 2013, Fiona launched an initial series of Limited Edition watches from her first collection, the Skull. She has extended the Skull collection into a number of iconic designs whilst developing new collections under her own brand. Fiona also works for other creative Haute Horlogerie brands, these collaborations have included designs for Speake-Marin, Febargé and a co-creation with Swiss clock manufacturer L’EPEE 1839.
Fiona works intuitively, responding to the materials, techniques or themes she chooses to explore. She has a keen eye for detail and collaborates with leading artisans and suppliers who share her passion for creativity. Fiona is able to draw on her fine art background, design training and international work experience to come up with a variety of creative solutions to suit each individual timepiece.
