There is something mesmerizing by skeleton watches. They show it all, allowing its owner to dwell on all the marvelous little parts that combined formed the movement. With nothing to hide, the watchmaker has to be at its best. Not only will every flaw in the finish of the movement be painfully visible, they also need to construct the movement with a minimum of metal used for bridges and other parts that can obstruct the view. Not an easy task, yet for some watchmakers a challenge too good to pass up on.
