    Armin Strom has designed the unique model One Week Skeleton Water Only Watch, to reflect the brand’s forty-year skeleton watch tradition and its transition into the present era.

    The watch is powered by an ARM09 Manufacture movement with a double going barrel and reveals the beautiful mechanical movement through the dial ring. It displays skeletonised bridges and bottom plate. Through the sapphire crystal case the gear train bridge, hand-engraved with waves, can also be viewed. It’s said to be a subtle reference to Monaco as the auction venue.

    The Manufacture movement and off-centre time display of hours, minutes and seconds, together with the 8-day power reserve indicator at 9 o’clock, are housed in an 18ct white gold case. The watch is fitted with a blue alligator “horn-back” bracelet, comprising a double folding clasp and blue rubber strap. It's presented in a high-quality box with a certificate.

    Looks like a lot of meat on that skeleton.
