If you check out Ali Express you’ll see tons of them there, in every case design, every segmented dial, tourbillon, open heart, twin balances etc. Then there are brands like Corum, ostensibly Swiss but very much a China owned brand these days, with a range of skeleton dial watches.

The LVMH group are holding their own watch show in Singapore right now, so new models from TAG, Hublot and Zenith are all making waves.

The new Stuhrling Imperia skeleton comes in black or white dial choises, plus there’s a gold coloured bezel option for some extra bling.
