Catalogue Note

It is fair to say that the current lot is particularly striking. Thoroughly skeletonised, the movement, every bridge of which is intricately engraved, quite deservedly receives pride of place. Being on full view, if anything, bolsters the users relationship with the timepiece more so, it may be argued, than if the same piece were fitted with a traditional dial. What is more, for a watch that is virtually transparent, the addition of blackend steel hands makes for a surprising level of legibility. The watch has been kept in excellent overall condition.
