The Top 10 Skeleton Watches
Blancpain Villeret Squelette 8-Day
Even if it was just a bare bones (pun intended) openworked skeleton watch, the Squelette 8-Day by Blancpain would be an object of desire. However, there’s a lot more to this member of the company’s Villeret collection, namely the fact that that hand-wound movement is gem-set and hand-engraved on the front and back, as well as the bezel of the 38mm red gold case being encircled in diamonds. Those tidbits go a long way toward explaining why it carried a $101,700 price tag when new.
