As per Wikipedia definition, A skeleton watch is a mechanical watch (although occasionally quartz), in which all of the moving parts are visible through either the front of the watch, the back of the watch or a small cut outlining the dial.
True ‘skeletonization‘ also includes the trimming away of any non-essential metal on the bridge, plate, wheel train or any other mechanical part of the watch, leaving only a minimalist ‘bare’ skeleton of the movement required for functionality. Often, the remaining thinned movement is decorated with engraving. This can be with or without a dial face that allows the user to see through to the movement.
Now I am going to share one review from a customer name Steve who bought Stuhrling Original Men’s Automatic Skeleton Watch. I found this review very interesting so wanted to share with my followers and hope you all will get more information about the watch through this review.
I bought this watch on impulse while using the Amazon App on my Ipad. It was advertised as a “Lightning Deal” with a timer counting down to the expiration of the deal in minutes. The advert depicted a $495 price with a line through it, and a $89.99 price. At the time I am thinking that this is a fantastically awesome deal! I was not familiar with Stuhrling and the time factor made it difficult to do research, so I just went for it. Overall, I am happy, but I cannot help feeling like the deal was misrepresented. It’s a beautiful watch and so far, it is running fine.
But it is clearly not a $500 instrument. It’s more like a $150 watch. And in fact, after the Lightning Deal was over, the price went to — not $500, but to $180. Still a decent deal overall. Okay — would I buy another one? At the $90 price, I certainly would. The casework is beautiful and styling unique.
Since making the order for Stuhrling Skeleton Watch, I have had time to do some research. Interestingly, the company’s website dances around the topic of where the watch is made, with all sorts of innuendo that it is Swiss, comments the Swiss founder and about upholding Swiss tradition, etc. But it’s Chinese. That’s not a problem; I just start to become uncomfortable when the facts are getting obscured. It’s interesting if you go to Google Maps and enter Stuhrling New York address. The street view is of something that looks like a small warehouse or large garage. The image does not inspire confidence that this is a solid, legitimate company. So I am a little mixed on the whole transaction. I think that time will tell as I use this Skeleton Watch more and more, also please Check Classical Watches from Stuhrling Original as well.
