Well, after searching "skeleton" and getting 261 threads in this forum alone, I figured 262 wouldn't be a big deal, and besides, probably not many, if any, folks are looking for what I am. However, I figure a few hundred - or thousands - of eyes out there might be able to point me in the right direction.
My collection is small, and since funds are tight, I'm hoping to round out the collection with different looks/feels rather than one of each. I've decided that a skeleton would be a nice addition, and I'm drawn to the mechanical bits anyway. The "problem" is that all the ones I see (MZI, Stuhrling, etc) are too highly decorated for my tastes. I'm more of a CNC-machined-billet, form-follows-function kind of guy, and I'd really like to find a clean, undressed skeleton that shows off all it's mechanical goodness without a lot of frills. It's not that I don't appreciate the intricate tool work, it's just not my primary interest.
So, what have y'all seen out there that might fit this bill? Ideally, it would be in the 40-42mm range, can be round or square, and preferably hand-wind, but could be automatic. Hands that can be seen easily, but don't obscure the goods. Oh, and let's not forget affordable...
Thanks in advance,
