The SNAKES winder is inspired by the ancient Greek mythology of Medusa by Perseus expressed in the famous painting by Caravaggio. The painting depicts the severed head of Medusa, a monster described as a woman, who had countless venomous snakes in place of her own hair. The legend also says Medusa had the power of turning to stone anyone who glanced at her, so will a thief who would dare stealing your beloved watch from the SNAKES winder!
Our SNAKES winder is all made by hand using the die cast moulding technique from original sketches and sculptures by Adatte Design creative team. The snakes are from the family of vipers, one of our favorite.
Original sketch idea.
Sculpture made with clay in our studio around the watch winder cubic base. This particular sculpture helped to figure out the perfect harmony in terms of position and movement of the three snakes around the cube. This study was replicated for the final piece.
