True 'skeletonization' also includes the trimming away of any non-essential metal on the bridge, plate, wheel train or any other mechanical part of the watch, leaving only a minimalist 'bare' skeleton of the movement required for functionality. Often, the remaining thinned movement is decorated with engraving. This can be with or without a dial face that allows the user to see through to the movement.
Some makers of mechanical skeleton watches and models include:
- Invicta watch
- Kenneth Cole
- Orient Watch / Orient Star Watch
- Patek Philippe & Co.
- Stührling Original
- Tao International
- Tissot Le Locle
