    Affordable Swiss made skeleton

    Hi everyone
    I was not into watches but recently I find myself enjoying this hobby and I decided to buy a watch. I really like skeleton watches. Also I really enjoy watches with different dial that tell the time in a unique way (for example watches with rotating discs). I saw Egard quantus V2 watch and I absolutely loved it. The design of the watch is perfect for my taste and It has everything I want except the movement. It has Chinese PTS movement that has been modified in house. I'm not so sure about the quality of these movements. Is there any alternative with swiss made movement under 500 dollars?? A skeleton watch with swiss made movement and unique way of telling time. I know I want something more than my budget but I'm new to this hobby and I wanted to make sure if there is any option out there for what I want.

    There aren't many Swiss skeleton watches available at that price point. You may be able to find some pre-owned Hamiltons if you look around the sales forum.

    There are a few Orient models in that range as well as a few custom makers like Eoniq (https://eoniq.co) that will custom cut dials to give you a skeleton look.

    Check out Hamilton Viewmatics. Not fully skeletonized, but has views of the movement front and back, and they range in price (gray market) from mid $500's to mid $700's.

    Otherwise, I think Sea Gull is a decent watch for the money. Chinese, but if you buy their watch from their dealers I think you get a little better quality (like they keep their "good" movements for themselves).
