Skull Axl Rose
LOOK YOU STRAIGHT
IN THE EYES
The Skull Axl Rose is a custom model created by Axl Rose. The artist chose a Skull base which, under his direction, was given a Damascus steel style treatment. In addition, he requested that this was given a blue treatment. For a complementary touch, Axl opted same colour for all the indexes applied around the Skull. Finally, he chose to affix two side plates to the piece (at 9 o'clock and 3 o'clock), decorated with the Clous de Paris pattern and also finished in blue PVD. The piece has a resolutely rock'n'roll feel, with a bold strap featuring blue topstitching.

On the back, HYT pays tribute to the rock icon in the form of the legendary Guns N’ Roses logo. Underneath this sits the singer's signature on the metallised sapphire case-back. The piece, which features a 51 mm DLC titanium case with microblasted finishes, will be available in December 2016 in an extremely limited edition of just 25 pieces.
