A commission requested by the lead singer of Guns N' Roses' Axl Rose, the present Skull Axl Rose carries the rocky yet charismatic personality of the legendary vocalist. Its centrepiece features a skull icon tributing to the Guns N' Roses emblem, coated in blue and stylized with a touch of Damascus steel. In true HYT fashion, a fluid capillary runs around the border of the skull, indicating time with the use of a coloured liquid. Its sapphire crystal case back is imprinted with the Guns N' Roses logo and the signature of Axl Rose, with the DLC titanium sheen completing its rock and roll aesthetic. As advertised by HYT indeed, "Welcome to the Skull Jungle''.
