Along with a plethora of skeletonized models for men (see trend No.3), we also noticed a growing number of pieces for ladies.

Oris had one of the most commercial ladies skeletonized collections with additions to Artelier Skeletons, which house the Oris Cal. 560 automatic movement, based on ETA’s 2671, in a 33mm case.

The skeletonization is a talking point for people unfamiliar with mechanical watches, while the use of diamonds and hints of rose gold ensure they are opulent and feminine as well.

Michel Herbelin is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year for the Newport collection of sailing-inspired timepieces.

The milestone is being marked with new chronographs and three-hand automatics for men, but ladies are getting the best piece of the year with this skeletonized Newport in a limited edition of only 300 pieces.

The watch is powered by a Swiss-made Sellita automatic movement that will also find its way into a main collection ladies piece with a mother-of-pearl dial.
