    A modern skeleton watch?

    Skeleton watches fascinates me, seeing all the cogs in action. However most skeleton watches are way too "dressy" for my taste. Gold, silver, lots of engravings and most often very delicate hands that can hardly be seen against the background.

    I think Franc Villa hit the spot with http://professionalwatches.com/2008/...aire_skel.html - a modern skeleton without all the "curly engravings" and it's actually easy to read the time.. Unfortunately it's a limited edition and way, way out of my price range..

    So I'm seeking your suggestions on modern, "clean" skeletons. An "engineers skeleton" designed to show engineering beauty rather than the elaborate workings of a jeweler..

    Thats a nice looking watch, simple and clean. I just wish the hands were slightly "chunkier" and in a contrast colour, they are kinda hard to spot at a glance.. The hour hand is almost "invisible" on the picture.

    Imagine something like this Sinn https://forums.watchuseek.com/showthread.php?p=1468581 as a skeleton with the hands in orange instead of white, I think it would look awesome, even if wide hands are rare on a skeleton.

    Understeer is when you hit the wall with your front end. Oversteer is when you hit the wall with your rear end. Horsepower is how hard you hit the wall. Torque is how far you move the wall.
