Tissot Sculpture Line Skeleton Watch

By Doug Sinclair on September 7, 2011

In this digital age it’s strangely refreshing to find someone still making something completely analog. Actually not just analog, but proudly and transparently displaying its analog-ness as the primary focus of its design.

Such is the Sculpture Line Skeleton Watch by Tissot. It’s a good old fashioned gears-and springs manual-wind (yes, you have to wind it!) timepiece, with little windows cut into the front and an entirely transparent back so you can watch the intricate little Swiss precision gears working in tandem, doing their tick-tocky thing. It’s mesmerizing in a way that staring at the microchips in a digital watch can probably never be.

On the outside, the case is 18k gold and very stylish with roman numerals on the face, and the strap is crocodile. But it’s the visible inner workings that give it that nostalgic flair.
