29 Sep 12 Skeleton Watches for men that you might open up too
It’s not really that hard to imagine what a skeleton watch is, it’s in the name, but they all come in different shapes and sizes. Not much else can show luxury than a skeleton watch. Whilst many watches have luxurious dials, the skeleton watch will tear part if not all that away to allow the wearer and their audience a glimpse into the watches engine and see how all the moving parts help make the second hand go tick!
Here our are picks of skeleton watches from the affordable to the expensive.
Skeleton Watches Under $500
Fossil The Commuter Automatic Movement Blue Dial Men's Watch Me3159
The Fossil Commuter Automatics watch starts us off, with a steel case and blue skeleton dial along with a mineral stone. It’s very pleasing on the eye, not too in your face, so may suit the more minimalist wearer looking for a skeleton watch.
Price From - $149
Invicta 22577 Men's Vintage Black & Silver Skeleton Dial Black Leather Strap Automatic Watch
Invicta generally make watches that are bold with striking appearances, the 22577 is no different. The open dial gives the appearance of a chronograph type face, along with a nice 50m water resistance means you’ll have no issues jumping in the pool with it on.
Price from - $80
GIV men's real Tourbillon wristwatches limited vintage 7005
This manual winding Chinese Tourbillion is rather attractive I must say. Definitely giving the appearance of a watch that could be worth $1000 upwards. The 42mm stainless steel case definitely gives your wrist a bit of umph! I think the placement of the open heart in the lower dial with the stones shows that the designer has paid attention to the aesthetics of the watch, and created a piece that would leave any buyer happy.

Skeleton Watches Under $1000
Hamilton Jazzmaster Open Heart
This may have won my heart to be fair. The Jazzmaster from Hamilton really sets the benchmark for affordability, design, and functionality. The skeleton really gives a glimpse into the quality swizz movement thats underneath.
Price From - $900
Seiko Presage SSA405J1 Cocktail Time Blue Moon with Open Heart
Seiko Presage is a excellent timepiece form their presage 2020 collection. Inspired by the Blue Moon cocktail, this really is a dress watch you want to light to catch whilst you are out having a cocktail or two. The leather strap and three-fold clasp really elevate overall look of the watch.
Price From - $400
Hamilton Khaki Field Skeleton Dial Brown Leather Men's 42mm Watch H72585535
Yes, a second Hamilton, why not? The Khaki Field mens 42mm watch is a little more gritty than the previous Jazzmaster. With a brown leather strap and the black PVD stainless steel case, it looks like a watch that is more suited to getting a little more dirty outside.

Skeleton Watches Under $5000
Oris Artix Skeleton
The Oris Artix Skeleton starts us off in the upper priced watches. The colours on this is what stands out for me, they work extremely well together, along with the way the they have designed the logo next to the 3 hour marker, and then with the face taken away, you get to appreciate the swiss quality underneath. With 26 jewels and a power reserve of 38 hours, you can see why this is starting to command a higher price tag.

Rado True Automatic Open Heart R2710016
How these watches can be picked up for as little as $1600 baffles me. The design of the ceramic case that flows into the bracelet is just phenomenal. The 40mm case means it’s not overly imposing and gives us skinny wrist guys a really nice option.
Price From - $1600
TAG Heuer Carrera Calibre Heuer 01 Automatic Skeleton Dial Men's Watch - CAR2A1Z.FT6044
The titanium TAG Heuer Carrera Skeleton can punch in higher weight classes. The great thing about TAG Heuers is that you know what you are getting when you spend your hard earned cash on them. I love how this watch allows you to see the detailing underneath a chronograph. With 100m water proof resistance, and the on the spot timing ability of a chronograph will make this watch really handy to see how fast you can drink a load of pina coladas before falling in the pool.

Skeleton Watches Over $5000
Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Double Balance Wheel Openwork 41mm Skeleton
Wanna splash some serious cash on your next skeleton watch? Why not buy a Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Double Balance Wheel Openwork 41mm Skeleton… Why not?
Damn it looks stunning though. The brushed rose gold bracelet really allows the technical aspects of the watch to stand out.
Price From - $110,000
Richard Mille 18k Rose Gold Titanium RM030 Declutchable Rotor RM30
The RM 030...

Hublot Classic Fusion Aerofusion Black Magic Automatic Black Dial Ceramic Men's Watch - 525.CM.01
Hublots Classic Fusions have really caught my eye recently. I was never a huge fan of them until a couple of months ago. The Aerofusion Black Magic is a particular favourite. The black ceramic case just gives a super mean look, then to see the inner working of the watch. With a meaty 45mm size as well, definitely one for those who have a thicker wrist, and wallet.
