Skeleton dials are not necessarily everyone’s cup of tea, but the gearheads and engineers among us go crazy for the transparent aesthetic. They allow the wearer to see the internals of their luxury replica watches throughout the day without having to flip the watch over to take a peek. When done right, it becomes a fascinating city of gears beneath the crystal that is sure to raise intrigue with any eye it catches. This year has had some pretty neat skeleton releases, so we have compiled 2 of the best skeleton dials of 2020 for your pleasure.
BR05 Skeleton Blue
The steel case fake Bell & Ross BR05 Skeleton Blue is the second limited edition of 500 that deviates from the original limited edition model by one component: its sapphire crystal. A seemingly small change makes a world of difference, giving new colour and breadth to the BR05 skeleton line with a blue-tinted sapphire crystal. Equally as transparent but ever more vibrant, the skeleton blue stays true to B&R’s priority for legibility with raised white hands and markers that contrast very well against the blue backdrop. The Sellita movement inside has been modified to truly provide a window into the watch’s heart, a treat for all fans of horology and reliability. Price: $6900 USD
Hublot Spirit of Big Bang Meca-10 Black Magic
Hublot flexes their manufacturing might with the black rubber strap copy Hublot Spirit of Big Bang Mecca-10 Black Magic. Beneath the dial is a factory of gears, executed with a very industrial feel and tone. Considering it has a whopping 10 days of power reserve, this horological factory on the wrist definitely means business. Sure, you won’t see any Geneva stripes or perlage on the in-house caliber HUB 1223, but this watch is finished to a superior degree, though with a stealthier overall aesthetic. It is meant to be anything but conventional. Hublot, always experimenting with evolution and defying expectations, through industrial sorcery has really created a timepiece that holds true to its name: Black Magic. Price: $38,000 AUD
