Hamilton’s latest Jazzmaster is truly a skeleton watch, not just a dial with some cut outs. This is because the watches (yes, this is a his-n-her’s release) were designed with the intent of showing off their new H-20-S automatic movement. There’s very little in the way of you seeing the actual moving parts at work, and the movement itself has cut outs and finishing (laser-engraved) that lets you know the movement was meant to be seen.

With the Jura, Rotary has created a line of skeleton watches which are classically styled and handsome, yet don’t overreach. Lower-priced skeleton watches are often horological traps set by fashion brands to ensnare budding watch enthusiasts under the false pretense of tradition and historical significance. What Rotary has done, is to proudly display the movement sans superfluous machine decoration.
You are either going to love this brand given its cool obscure status or feel cold to it due to its remarkably unknown name. Let’s consult the United Nations of Watch Makers (a global organization I just made up) and see who Molnar Fabry is…
One of the new Devon watches for 2013 to be presented at Baselworld will be this Exoskeleton version of the Tread 1 (reviewed here). This will be Devon’s highest-end watch to date.
This is the Hublot watch for people who don’t traditionally like Hublot. It is in the Classic Fusion collection and has a skeletonized tourbillon movement. To be honest, I sort of get a sense of glee when I post a picture of an Hublot watch on my wrist, share it on Instagram (aBlogtoWatch), and people battle on whether it is wonderful or hideous in the comments.
If you are reading this article on the day of its release then it is Valentine’s Day. Lucky you (and lucky Bovet)! For me Valentine’s Day is a charming occasion when men are expected to be unpredictable, extra-thoughtful, and gift-bearing…
“Quatuor” is a name I can hardly pronounce but represents a piece of fun from Roger Dubuis that is wonderfully and most exquisitely deranged.
I wonder what you feel about the Chinese watch. When people hear “watch made in China,” what is it that comes to mind? It is likely a combination of both positive and negative things. I think most people think of either inexpensively made mass produced watches, or counterfeit luxury goods.
Based out of Los Angeles, California, the Refined Hardware Watch Makers have set out to craft functionally and mechanically beautiful pieces for the modern man. This company’s exclusive made-to-order pieces and industrial designs are anything but traditional and this month marks the release of their launch edition piece, ‘The Harbinger’.
These two watches are interesting limited edition Royal Oak watches done in honor of the 40th Anniversary of the Royal Oak collection. While not the only limited edition models for 2012, these are the two skeletonized versions and each come in platinum cases – a bit ironic to celebrate the famous high-end steel watch. Audemars […]

Italian Breil wants one of you to win this Orchestra reference TW1027 automatic watch. The very similar Breil Orchestra TW1020 was reviewed on aBlogtoRead.com here. In a 45mm wide black-toned steel case this is the cool skeletonized mechanical Orchestra model. It features an exposed automatic Japanese Miyota automatic mechanical movement that has been thoroughly skeletonized […]
More on the steampunk front! I am happy that this trend isn’t waning away. Entry-level to super high-end watch makers are still dishing out pieces that look like retro futuristic artifacts. Perhaps not in the volume we would like, but we still get some good stuff. Louis Moinet has been doing steampunk Jules Verne homage […]
A surprising new member of the Hublot watch family this year will be the new Classic Fusion Extra-Thin Skeleton. It is relatively thin (especially for a Hublot), it is relatively simple (just the time), and it has a very nice looking modern skeletonized movement and dial. Overall a winner if the look suits you. Recently […]
As a follow-up model to their Lunokhod watch, Russian Konstantin Chaykin releases the very limited edition Lunokhod New Moon. I guess they call it that because it is their new moon phase watch. The original Lunokhod was a very interesting and inspired watch that I discussed hands on here. The original Lunokhod featured the same […]
Linde Werdelin put a lot of time and effort into the release of their first chronograph model. I am pretty sure that the team spend a lot of time discussing the right movement, dial design, and other features of their new chronograph timepiece. Why so much effort? Whether you believe it or not chronograph models […]
