When someone dies many people like to keep reminders of their loved ones with them. Such was the impetus behind Ulli Kampelmann, professional artists, jewelry designer and avid Michael Jackson fan, deciding to pay tribute to the fallen icon be designing a series of hand crafted timepieces.
Calling his work Remember the Time after a track from Jackson''s 1991 album, Dangerous, Kampelmann''s work is a modern pocket watch shaped and bespectacled to resemble the late singer''s trademark rhinestone glove.
"The satisfaction of holding time in your hand rather than strapped to your wrist is remarkably appropriate with this design," says Kampelmann. "This (timepiece) is a reminder and a thank you to this amazing artist. "
Kampelmann incorporated elements of her previous design, the jeans pocket watch, adding a 22-inch chain to connect the Swarovski-studded watch to owner''s belt for easy access.
Jackson died of a heart attack earlier this year while preparing for an upcoming tour.
The timepieces are currently in production and have a planned release date of Thanksgiving 2009.
