    Skeleton Watches

    Is it just me, or do most skeleton watches look very busy and hard; almost impossible to read? Probably an acquired taste. Just wondered what ohers thought.

    I agree, I can't stand them. I love a simplistic tool watch look. Fancy for me is my Omega Seamaster.

    My Nivrel is easy to read and I've said it for some time, everyone should have at one skeleton in their watch closet.

    It's not that bad once you get used to it, but yeah skeletons are more a novelty than anything else. I think it's good to have one though.

    I only have one and I didn't spend a lot on it. It's a fun watch for certain times.

    I have three skeletons, but they don't get much time on my wrist. They are a little too busy to wear often.

    If you're going to have a fancy-pants decorated moveemnt it might as well be visible, so skeletons are perfect. Who cares if it is slightly harder to read? If that's your major concern get a huge digital watch. Or set the screeensaver on your phone to show the time. Obviously a skeleton is going to take a fraction of a second longer to work out than some cheap austere dial with no ornamentation whatsoever.

    If you don't like the look of them, then that is a different story. Don't buy one. Personally, I think they work best with hand-winds. Rotors are boring to look at IMO.

    Yes, they are.

    However, show one to a girl and she won't mind your watch geekery anymore. It's like hypnotizing them with little turning gears and springs
