Watch mechanism: discovering the transparent case back


Also called “skeleton watches”, the watch mechanism of this type has the particularity to be seen through the dial. They will let you constantly see the wheels that make the hands turn. Very fashionable at the moment, these watches are a mark of elegance and character.


The mechanism shows apparent: why?

These watches have been around for a very long time. The first one was created in 1760 by André-Charles Caron, a master watchmaker, who wanted his customers to be able to admire the wonderful movement of the mechanism of his watches.

In doing so, he realized that he could create thinner, lighter watches, thus getting rid of components superfluous to the functioning of the watch.

These watches then disappeared for nearly 175 years before Audemars Piguet reinvented them in 1934.

This time, they were wristwatches, which offered much less room to remove components. Nevertheless, he succeeded and his company’s watches are both functional and beautiful, with the incredible movement they display.

Skeleton watches are now a hallmark of precision and technical talent. They are extremely popular with customers for the fascinating beauty of their mechanical movement as well as for their unparalleled elegance.
