For a pre-owned, ultra-thin rose gold version, you should be prepared to spend around 67,000 euros. New rose gold versions will set you back around 75,000 euros. If you want a skeletonized Royal Oak with a tourbillon, you should plan to spend 200,000 euros. This price applies to new gold and stainless steel watches. The stainless steel version is limited to a run of 100 watches, making it extremely rare and also a good investment. The Royal Oak Openworked Grande Complication is even more expensive. The intricate titanium watch costs over 650,000 euros. A new Millenary Minute Repeater is somewhat less expensive; it only costs 370,000 euros.

Skeleton Watches From Audemars Piguet

The Swiss manufacturer Audemars Piguet is a specialist when it comes to skeleton watches. Their most famous model is the Royal Oak. The stainless steel watch revolutionized the Swiss market for luxury watches in the 1970s. Up until its introduction, most brand-name Swiss watches were made exclusively of precious metals like gold. The Royal Oak's porthole design is world famous. Today, this iconic watch is also available with a solid gold case or a skeletonized movement. Audemars Piguet named their skeleton model "Openworked." Ultra-thin, skeletonized men's watches with a tourbillon or Grande Complication watches from Audemars Piguet are true highlights of haute horlogerie. Grande Complication watches have multiple complications, such as a perpetual calendar, chronograph function, and minute repeater. The Royal Oak Grande Complication is also available in an Openworked version.

The Audemars Piguet Millenary is significantly more elegant than the sporty Royal Oak. The Millenary has an elliptical case, off-centered dial, and a skeletonized movement. You have the choice between a stainless steel, pink gold, or white gold case. Some models feature a diamond-set case and bezel. The movements have beautiful, finely skeletonized bridges and you can view their balance wheels in motion. The most intricate model in this series is the version with a minute repeater.


Skeleton Watches from Patek Philippe

Aside from Audemars Piguet, Patek Philippe is one of the most famous Swiss watch manufacturers. The most elegant and intricate pocket and wristwatches are produced by this company, and it's reflected in their prices. The most famous models from this Genevan manufacturer are the dress watch Calatrava, the sports watch Nautilus, and the intricate Grandes Complications. The Grandes Complications has a skeletonized version with reference number 5304R-001. The 43-mm timepiece has a rose gold case and is powered by the caliber R 27 PS QR LU, which features a perpetual calendar with a retrograde date hand. Since the dial and case back are both made of sapphire glass, you can view the movement from both sides.

The ultra-thin model with reference number 5180/1G-010 is also skeletonized. This skeleton watch is a part of the Complications collection. Its 39-mm case is made of either 18-karat white or rose gold. It has a small-linked white gold Milanese bracelet. The caliber 240 SQU is skeletonized, hand-engraved, and automatic. Its mini-rotor is made of 22-karat gold. Thanks to its small oscillating mass, the movement is a wonderful 2.53 mm thin.


Skeleton Watches from TAG Heuer

TAG Heuer is one of the most beloved Swiss sports watch manufacturers. Models such as the Carrera or Monaco are iconic chronographs. Almost every famous race car driver wore a Heuer timepiece in the 1960s and 70s. TAG Heuer was also the first Swiss luxury watch manufacturer to introduce a smartwatch, the Connected, to the market.

If you'd like a skeleton chronograph from TAG Heuer, then the Carrera Calibre Heuer 01 is a good choice. You can view the front of the in-house caliber through the skeletonized dial. The 45-mm case is made of brushed stainless steel and a titanium carbide coating makes this automatic watch even more robust. A sapphire glass case back gives you a view of the Heuer 01 caliber from the other side.


Affordable Skeleton Watches from Tissot, Fossil, and Bulova

The Swiss manufacturer Tissot offers mechanical and quartz watches at an outstanding price/performance ratio. The Le Locle-based company also manufactures skeleton watches. The T-Complication Squelette Mechanical is one of these models. According to the manufacturer, the design was inspired by a wheel. The holes in the movement have many corners that modernize its look. The black leather strap, on the other hand, is classic, making the T-Complication Squelette a perfect meeting point of the past and present. The domed sapphire glass on the front side is anti-reflective on both sides, and the sapphire glass case back allows you a view of the other side of the manual ETA 6497 caliber.

The American company Fossil has countless skeleton watches on offer. In many models, you can only see through the dial to the balance wheel. Many others give you a full look at the movement. The Grant Sport model even has a moon phase display and calendar. A sapphire glass back gives you a perfect view of the automatic caliber. The Commuter model foregoes subdials and additional complications. The gold-colored stainless steel watch focuses on what's important: displaying the time. Therefore, you get a magnificent look at the skeletonized movement. The movement, made by the Citizen subsidiary Miyota, is also gold-colored. You can view the skeletonized winding rotor and plates through the glass case back.

The American/Swiss company Bulova also offers skeleton watches. The most famous Bulova model is the tuning fork watch Accutron. There was a version of this watch also available with a transparent dial so you could view both tuning forks and the electronic movement. The current skeleton automatic watches resemble those from Fossil. Some models have eight screws on the bezel, creating a porthole look.


What is a skeleton watch?

Skeleton watches allow you a look inside the watch. To achieve this, manufacturers reduce the dial and the movement so that there are openings. Processes like sawing, punching, and milling are used. When the skeleton watch has a glass case back, you have a view inside the watch from both sides. Traditional manufacturers such as Audemars Piguet and Patek Philippe have perfected the skeleton watch. These manufacturers hire specialists to create these pieces of watchmaking art by hand. With precise tools and incredible skill, the specialists work the caliber. When the skeletonizing is done by hand and not by machine, the watches are prime examples of haute horlogerie. Only a few manufacturers have mastered this skill.


The History of Skeleton Watches

Skeleton wristwatches have been around since the 1930s. The predecessor to these tiny pieces of art were skeleton pendulum clocks. These clocks were popular in France in the first half of the 19th century. One of the most legendary skeleton pocket watches is the Marie Antoinette from Breguet. The master watchmaker Abraham-Louis Breguet developed and skeletonized this timepiece for the French queen. The pocket watch, which took over 40 years to produce, is still considered one of the most exquisite pocket watches in the world.

Manufacturers of inexpensive skeleton watches produce them rather quickly and with comparatively less effort thanks to modern technology. Up to 50 pieces can be skeletonized simultaneously with a wire. When choosing automated skeletonizing, manufacturers refrain from further working the movement. Skeletonizing by hand is much more precise and requires incredible skill.

Skeleton Watch Highlights

  • Allow you a view of the movement
  • Calibers skeletonized by hand are pieces of watchmaking art
  • The Marie Antoinette is one of the most famous skeletonized pocket watches
