In a complex play of light and shadow, between the hidden and the exposed, the Highlife Automatic Skeleton brings to life a modern vision of skeletonisation and mechanical watchmaking. Those who are especially curious will appreciate the open caseback, which showcases the mechanical workings of the piece.
This skeletonisation presents a technical and aesthetic challenge. Technical, as the calibre is updated through tiny openings as numerous as they are delicate and created without the use of any sharp angles. Aesthetic, as skeletonisation is a rare watchmaking practice that does not traditionally focus on the dial alone and the centre even less so.
The Highlife Automatic Skeleton is available in two limited series. The first incorporates the Highlife collection's much loved colour combination: steel case and strap with blue dial. The second variation is a first; a steel version with anthracite grey titanium PVD coating. The watches come with a second interchangeable rubber strap, accentuating their sporty look.
