Men's luxury skeleton wrist watches - Pros & Cons

What exactly is a skeleton watch? Is it made up of the bones of animals? Are they only seen during the week of Halloween? Not exactly..these types of watches usually are encased in some type of transparent material that allows you to see the inner mechanisms of the watch working. Typically it is part of the face that can be seen ticking, sometimes it's the sides or back of the watch.

Pros - You get to enjoy watching the spectacular inner workings of a watch in motion.

Cons - If the skeleton watch face shows working gears behind it, it can occasionally be a little bit more difficult to tell the time. Some of the faces have extremely small numbers or are complicated to tell time. If you buy a cheap Chinese knockoff skeleton watch you should only expect it to last a few months (maybe a year or two). They typically will stop working after a short time.

The most expensive made skeleton watch is the the Skeleton Central Tourbillon from Omega according to the Watch Report. This watch is no exception from the well-known watches from Omega. The Skeleton Central has impressed with its 800 separate parts, each of them being hand-made, and with the placement of the tourbillon right in the center of the face. This watch is available for anyone being willing to pay $282,500 for it. We currently don't have any of these but are more than happy to help you sell it.

Here are some great examples of premium skeleton watches available at a discounted price for a limited time from Gray & Sons. Let us know in the comments which watches you like best and why?

Wow, I really like the effect the skeleton look gives, makes all the designer wrist watches look like old clock towers.

I'm torn between the Hautlence HLO and the Corum Perpetual as a favorite. Now I know what I want for Christmas.
