  • Skeleton watch


    Bréguet Claude Meylan Skeleton A skeleton watch is a mechanical watch, 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. Some makers of mechanical skeleton watches and models include but are not limited to: Golleti Ingersoll Chopard L.U.C XP SKELETEC Basse Broye Invicta watch Patek Philippe Skeleton Stauer 1779 and 1901 Skeleton Festina Fossil Twist Swatch DEPA Skeleton movements Orkina Skeleton Breguet Akribos Chenevard Stührling Original Corum Kudoke Jochen Benzinger Kenneth Cole Tissot Le Locle Armitron Orion Skeleton Sacom Eterna Boetti IK Colouring Oris Seiko Rougois Sea-Gull Tao International Rotary Skeleton Yves Camani Claude Meylan, Vallée de Joux HMT, Skeleton in steel & gold Piaget Altiplano Skeleton

  • Chinese standard movement


    A typical lower-quality skeletonized variant of the Chinese Standard Movement, frequently found today in cheap mechanical watches mass-produced and marketed by a large number of brand names. Note the rough finishing of the movement. The white plastic spacer ring designed to hold and stabilize the movement in its case is clearly visible around the movement. (photo 2008) The Chinese Standard Movement, also commonly known as the "Tongji" (Chinese: 统机, "unified") movement, is a mechanical watch movement that was developed in the People's Republic of China during its fourth Five-Year Plan in the 1970s. It was designed by engineers from several early Chinese watch factories as part of a Ministry of Light Industry initiative to consolidate the industry, and with a few exceptions it became mandatory for all factories to discontinue the production of their own movements and to mass-produce the standard movement. Because of this, the production of the standard movement defines an entire era in the history of Chinese watchmaking.
