Granted, these skeletons are not very scary, so that might make them even more perfect for your closet because they will complement a large range of outfits. Skeleton watches have always been quite a challenge to make, as you cut away what a watch so desperately needs: the stability of the main plate and bridges. That makes skeleton watches almost like a walk on the high wire for watchmakers, and so enticing for the rest of us!
Rotonde de Cartier Mysterious Hour Skeleton
This Cartier might be the ultimate watch to wear for Halloween. It does not have any skulls on the dial or case to give you the creeps, but it remains a mystery how it works. Remarkable how Cartier can show the inner workings of this watch and you have still no idea how it moves the hands. It is like the ultimate horological magic trick!
Roger Dubuis Excalibur Spider
A star-shaped bridge is seemingly all that keeps the movement of this Roger Dubuis Excalibur Spider in place. While that is a feat in itself, also take a close look at these bridges and admire their perfect finish, not surprising, as this watch carries the Geneva Seal. Also enticing is the skeletonized micro-rotor that powers the movement, which gives the watch a dynamic element together with the balance wheel placed below.
Chanel Premier Camelia Skeleton
There is no reason not to shine on Halloween, and the Chanel Premier Camelia Skeleton is the perfect watch for that. Not only because of its pave diamond setting, that even extends to the hands of this watch, but also because of its unique skeleton movement. This second manufacture movement from Chanel is different due to its round bridges, which perfectly frame the gear train.
Bulgari Octo Finissimo Tourbillon Skeleton
Not only a skeleton, fitted with a tourbillon, but also the thinnest one ever made: the Bulgari Octo Finissimo Tourbillon Skeleton is a horological treat on so many levels. Its distinct case demands attention, while its movement holds it. Just as the Chanel, is it metal and black theme not only timeless but also quite appropriate to wear on October 31st (and every other day of the year!)
