Hands-on: The Jolly Roger Skull Tonneau Watches
Skeleton is the most common element among pirates. Our inspiration for incorporating the skull into the watch comes from the skull and the hourglass, which are the two most classic elements of the Jolly Roger. In my opinion, the skeleton not only represents death, but also represents a new beginning. It can also be said that changing fate is the pursuit of a new life. On the other hand, the skeleton is also a symbol of strength, the eternity of life.
Sometimes, I envy pirates. The reason is that they can break through the shackles of the world to seek the truest selves, and obtain what they want. Although it is inevitable that there will be strong winds and waves on the ocean, and may even be life-threatening. But they still go as before, never staying. Their courage to explore and pursue freedom are very valuable. This watch fits well with our brand philosophy. Persevere in what you want to do, and hope that all the wishes in your heart can be realized.
The name of this watch comes from the French word Jolie Rouge, meaning “bright red”. It represents the most famous symbol of pirates-flags painted with skulls and skeletons that pirates raised to their masts before attacking enemy ships.Some historians believe that the skull was first used by the French pirate Emmanuel Wey on his flag in 1700. In addition to the skull, an hourglass for timing is also drawn on the flag. Skull & hourglass means to imply that the attacked person has to make a quick decision.

The Jolly Roger watch I designed comes in three colors, black, green, and gold.Black: The most iconic color among pirates. Pirates’ clothing, sails, and flags are all unified in black.
Green: According to folklore, sailing at night will encounter ghost ships emitting mysterious green flames. Interestingly, the skull in the watch dial also glows green at night.
Gold: Of course, it is the representative color of pirates favorite gold. After this gold has been toned, it has become a niche but special watch color.
The Jolly Roger watch we designed hopes that people can boldly pursue themselves, be true to themselves, enjoy the fun of life and have the courage to break through the shackles of the world. The sentence that impressed me –
“The big challenge is to become all that you have the possibility of becoming. You cannot believe what it does to the human spirit to maximize your human potential and stretch yourself to the limit.” — Jim Rohn.
