Presenting in a limited edition of 100 pieces in Black Steel with Titanium components, the CVSTOS Inkvaders Jetliner Skull was designed and produced in collaboration with Christian Nguyen, multitalented artist best known for his tattoo art. Written on the rehaut is “INKVADERS” the name of the studio founded by Nguyen and where most of his work, when not travelling for temporary residences in other studios, is done.
In Christian Nguyen’s work, especially in his more personal and artistic work the skull as always been a central subject. The Skull dial hand designed and then is produced in polished steel to sublimate its complexity and details. The movement has been black plasma coated giving it a black colour and as such highlighting the dial and increasing its legibility.
Christian Nguyen has a varied and faithful group of customers turned friends from sports – Yvan Muller (4 WTCC titles), Goran Bezina (NHL and Swiss Hockey), Romain di Marchi (Freestyle Snowboarder) and music industries - Fred Durst, Wes Borland and John Otto (Limp Bizkit), Danny Boy, Everlast (House of Pain, La Coka Nostra), DJ Naughty J (Suprême NTM) as well as DJ Remady and DJ Lethal (Both turntablists and producers), among many others.
Nguyen’s celebrated work has also led to a series of invitations to design apparel, music disc covers and motorcycle personalization. “Inkvaders” in Geneva is Christian Nguyen base, the studio where his designs come to life (or ink).
