Skeleton watches are mechanical watches in which all of the moving parts are visible.
The goal is to reveal as much of the watch’s interior as possible. For watch lovers who love this particular characteristic, these timepieces give them a detailed look at a watch’s inner workings. The moving parts are visible through either the front of the watch, the back of the watch or a small cut outlining the dial. A true skeletonized watch includes the trimming away of non-essential metal on any mechanical part of the watch, leaving only the ‘nude’ movement required for functionality. It allows the wearer to admire the beautiful heart of the watch.
