Pros

Hublot’s Big Bang Meca-10 watch features an in-house caliber HUB1201 manual movement, and the brand is confident enough to highlight it. Encased in a fully-opened dial, this skeletonized timepiece shows off all the nuts and bolts that help it function. The watch boasts its 10-day power reserve with a jumping indicator that tells how many days of the watch’s energy are left. In terms of aesthetics, the brand made use of “industrial chic” to further push the item’s highly-functioning narrative—encasing it in either stainless titanium steel of a more subdued all-black ceramic.

Cons

Despite such attention to the watch’s functions, the luxury timepiece market is still all about aesthetics. Skeletonized watches may have been getting a lot of attention in recent years, but design-wise, they still pale in comparison to the more highly-stylized pieces. The average luxury watch client still wants glamour when it comes to their pieces, and this watch certainly does not have that in abundance. Furthermore, as with any other skeletonized timepieces, telling the time is made all the more difficult with such a busy and complex face.
