1 Hublot MP-12 Key Of Time Skeleton All Black
Have you ever wanted to speed up the time, perhaps during a never-ending day at work? Or slow it down on holidays? Well now you can, thanks to the Hublot MP-12 Key Of Time. The watch is the first in the world to voluntarily speed up or slow down time, making its owner the keeper of time himself. A three-position crown enables him to modulate the speed at which the hours and minutes pass. This year, Hublot revisits one of its most unique and complicated masterpieces (MP), and gives it an extremely sporty appearance with a microblasted black PVD titanium case, and a manual-winding skeleton movement with column wheel. Limited to 20 pieces, the MP-12 Key Of Time Skeleton All Black is priced at $ 288,000.
2 Roger Dubuis Excalibur Spider Skeleton Double Flying Tourbillon
Roger Dubuis is a manufacture known for their bold style. It isn’t afraid to push the boundaries of artistic flourish while exploring technical advancements. The Excalibur Spider Skeleton Double Flying Tourbillon, debuted earlier this year at SIHH, perfectly exemplifies a firm commitment to its DNA. Lots of brands produce skeletonized movements and, though many are quite beautiful, the aesthetics for the most part take a traditional path. With their skeleton pieces, Roger Dubuis blows past the historic codes into daring new territory. Instead of filing away and decorating an existing movement, the calibre is produced in skeleton form and it’s a daring composition whose design could belong in the modern art section of a museum.

3 Cartier Rotonde De Cartier Astrotourbillon Skeleton
It’s the most transparent, or skeletonized watch in the list. Unveiled at SIHH 2015, the Rotonde de Cartier watch showcases one of its most sophisticated movements. Caliber 9461 MC is a manually wound skeletonized movement powering a central chronograph, flying tourbillon, and astrorégulateur. Presented in a 47mm white gold case, it is the perfect showcase for Cartier’s original take on the tourbillon, which doubles as a center-mounted seconds hand. Limited to 100 pieces, the Astrotourbillon Skeleton will set you back £ 135,00.
4 Zenith Pilot Type 20 Skeleton
Since its founding in 1865, Zenith has had deep ties to the world of aviation, manufacturing some of the first flight instruments including altimeters, chronographs and onboard watches for pilots. Of course, the Zenith Pilot Type 20 Skeleton is no traditional pilot watch, but it honors the brand’s proud history by integrating its iconic 5011 pocket-watch caliber used in some of its earliest pilot watches. This time, the whopping 50mm movement is fully displayed inside a case crafted entirely from a 60mm sapphire. Hand-engraved from its lugs down to its crown, it showcases the – perhaps underrated – artistic expertise of Zenith’s craftsmen, who have come together in order to create a stunning blue enameled white gold bezel. http://www.hautetime.com/hands-on-the-zenith-pilot-type-20-skeleton-a-60mm-wristwatch-packed-full-of-history-and-craftsmanship/
