BARE IT ALL WATCHES –
HEART-BEAT AND SKELETON WATCHES
Most of the time fine watch-making is hidden from view and only seen by another watchmakers, the new trend in mechanical skeleton watches has come with the expectation that the watch owner gets to see what he or she has just bought.
However, skeleton watches with clear faces and sometimes clear backs were first introduced in 1792 when the Queen Marie Antoinette watch was commissioned to be made by Abraham Louis Brequet in his Paris shop.
Brequet made the Marie Antoinette watch with polished rock crystal lens on the front and back of the watch to expose all the fine 18k gold wheels set in sapphires. Marie Antoinette would never live to see the watch.
Over the last few years, the attitude and offerings for watches under $12,000.00 has shifted significantly – Heart-Beat watches which have3 a small window in the dial – today tourbillon automatic mechanisms have become a decorative feature on automatic watches.
Previously, the Heart-Beat tourbillion dial watches were only available to collectors of watches who were willing to pay the $12,000.00 to $150,000.00 price of watches made by prestige brands – Patek Philippe, Jaeger-LeCoultre, Vacheron, Frederique Constantine, Ulysses Nardin – exclusive and expensive watchmakers.
The idea of “putting on a little more show” has taken root in more commercial watchmakers like Citizen, Breitling, Rolex, Android, Salas and Cartier watch brands.
