The skeleton clock is characterized by having its movement plates pierced out to a minimum of essential metal in a symmetrical design which leaves all the wheel-work and escapement clearly visible. The first British skeleton clocks were made ca. 1820 mainly as curiosities and to special order, however, demand soon increased as a new generation sought its novelty.
The Museums Skeleton Watch is based on an original skeleton clock found in the collection of The British Museum, of a simple design with a timepiece movement and anchor escapement. This watch is powered by automatic movement, which means that the watch is wound automatically by the natural motion of the wearers arm. Produced in cooperation with the British Museum, London. Stainless steel, with 24K gold overlay. Brown genuine lizard band. Automatic movement. Imported. Band: 9 1/2”L. Case: 1 1/2” diam.
