Description

Skeleton watches always interest watch collectors, as you can see the working of the watch.

HOW DO WE DATE THIS WATCH?

The Miyota 8N24 movement in this watch is made especially for skeleton watches, and this was designed in 2010.  This watch model is no longer available, so we have selected a mid point to say this watch was made circa 2014.  Sadly we don’t have any more accurate information on this one.

CONDITION

Festina watches are very popular on continental Europe, especially in Spain.  This example, model 6744, has the majority of the dial removed to expose the balance wheel, escapement and keyless works from the front.  One the back you can see the automatic oscillating weight (itself with a large cut out to ensure you can see what is going on), and the bridges are also worked to show as much as possible.  Some manufacturers simply use a standard movement that is not designed to be seen in skeleton movements, and this looks poor.  Some skeletonise the movement so much that you can see your wrist through the watch.  This is just right.

The case construction is all stainless steel, and this does show signs of wear.  Most noticeable is a graze near 9.  the mineral crystal on the front has the Festina logo printed on it, and a scratch near 10.  The glass on the back also has the Festina logo and crest printed on.  The strap is a new rubber in blue to match the dial, but this can be changed to leather if needed.

This watch will be supplied with our Certificate of Authenticity.
