No matter how you look at it, you can see that it is a piece of art.

Despite the fact that current technology may be used to produce movement components rapidly, efficiently, and with low rejection rates, manual skeleton work is the king of watchmaking disciplines.

Almost all Haute-Horlogerie brands keep this tradition alive. To do the filigree decorations by hand, you need a lot of dexterity and sensitivity to touch, as well as very steady hands, which are important skills for any watchmaker.

It also takes the imagination and creativity of an artist to design a way to show the whole mechanism in a way that fits the aesthetics of the watch.

The history of the skeletonized watch

The skeleton watch was first invented in 1760 by Andre-Charles Caron, a Frenchmen who would later become the resident clockmaker to King Louis XV. Homething about the watch’s nudity seemed salaciously captivating and elegantly enticing to a reserved 18th century society, maybe even involuntarily becoming a symbol for the epoch of enlightenment by breaking up entrenched structure.
