Best See Through Watches with Visible Moving Parts

Mechanical watchmakers continue to up the game when it comes to unique blends of fashion and functionality in different skeleton designs.

From manual skeleton to automatic electrically driven or self-winding watches, designers have relentlessly stood up to the challenge. The products honor both classical and contemporary design paradigms, staying true to the transparent sophistication behind the craft.

Now, the see-through watches have made an appearance.

A see-through watch is a mechanical timepiece that has its moving parts visible through the front and the back, like the battery. The dial on these watches reveals the detailed working of the watch beneath, showing the movement and precision of the mechanism for men & women.

If the technical side of things gets your adrenaline pumping, transparent watches are a perfect fit.

Today, many brands are presenting designs, and there are plenty of excellent models on offer, including the competitive Swiss equivalents.

The only potential problem with a see-through face is readability.

You'll be able to see what's happening inside a timepiece, so there will be much to admire within the detail—being able to see the time at a glance may take some effort at first.

Transparent watches aren't the most practical options for working people. That's why we'd suggest something a bit more utile in nature. It's certainly fun to have a see-through watch, but you'll want one of our beautiful timepieces as your first option.

And, with our drive to keep our prices affordable, buying both won't break the bank. You'll notice that we've got a smaller range of models. Maintaining several design lines would have meant reducing the quality. Instead, we stuck to a smaller range of flawless designs.

Our designer, Jakob Wagner, drew on the principle of Hygge for inspiration. This Scandi concept is all about focusing on moments instead of things. Our watches embody this principle by keeping perfect track of every moment and sticking to simple features.

Our timepieces are elegant, affordable, and timeless. It’s a winning combination, but we still weren’t satisfied.

We wanted our clients to have more choices. As a result, we've added several customizable options.

Dial Size

All of our watches, aside from the Pioneer, come in a range of dial sizes.

Dial Color

Who says the dial has to be plain white or silver? Certainly not us – choose between black, white, or navy.

Straps Material and Color

We offer straps made from stainless steel mesh and leather or vegan leather in various colors. We also offer rubber and nylon straps. Not sure which option to choose? Get a few – our straps are interchangeable so that you can quickly shake up your look.

Want an extra set of straps? Have a look at our Popular Bundle Options to find the perfect bundle and save up to 20%. Don't see anything you like? Put your own package together with our Bundle Selector Tool.

Case Color

Our cases are made of high-grade stainless steel. Choose between gunmetal, rose gold, gold, or silver.

More About Our Models

Here's a quick rundown of your options.

The Pioneer

The chronograph is a classic design in men’s watches. We thought it was time to make it a little more contemporary. We've added two dials inset into the face. One's a stopwatch, and the other's a second counter. We added in the date but stripped out any extraneous features.

We understand that it’s cool to have a depth gauge on your watch, but that's only useful for divers. An  automatic /mechanical timepiece with a ton of added features can become overly complicated for daily usage. It’s best to stick with something simpler. 

The Native

The Native is stylistically one of our least complex designs. This model features hour markings to ensure that the face is clear and uncomplicated.

The Philosopher

Want something a little more complex without opting for the Pioneer? Then have a look at the Philosopher. It marks off the hours, minutes, and seconds. The date is also featured on the dial.

Infinity

Finally, we get to the Infinity. This model is the only one without lugs and so is ideal for those who prefer a more streamlined look. The hours and minutes are marked, but there is no date or third hand.
