I’ll let you into a secret about my glass backed skeleton watches. There’s more to them than meets the eye. Their intricately designed faces tell the time but it’s what behind the face that tells a story. Look through the glass and see a story of quality craftsmanship, intricate engineering and horological heritage.
Like myself, these watches are not just a pretty face. There’s a lot going on beneath the surface. You’ll see that they aren’t just beautiful in their design, but the masterful engineering that has gone into bringing them to life is also wonderfully captivating too. Like any good book, when you turn over your glass-backed watch, you’ll find yourself enchanted as you stare into the inner workings as its cogs and springs whir life into your timepiece.
I’m a fan of a good story. You may have read my own story about how I became a worldly watch collector-turned-global retailer. If not, go and give it a read. You’ll see how my own backstory has shaped me into the ape I am today. Maybe it’s because my own story is so outlandish that I have been drawn to these skeleton watches, each with their own tale to tell.
Some of my favourite storytellers include names such as Abbrecci, Mirtello, and Abbrecci, Mirtello and Excelsior are all fine purveyors of mechanical and skeleton watches. Take the Abbrecci Victorian for example, with its sumptuous steampunk design and deep chocolate brown strap, or the Mirtello Night Black and Gold with its muscular gunmetal strap. Or how about the Excelsior Magnum Gold with its sophisticated gold and white face and jet black strap, complete with stainless steel buckle.
These are just a few of the glass-backed, story-telling mechanical skeleton watches we have in store. Spend some time perusing the store and immerse yourself in the stories.
