Maybe hot take: Open heart watches are no less (or more) classy than watches with dial-side tourbillons

Most open heart watches I've seen are sub $1k whereas most tourbillons I've seen are $50k and up (excluding some of the Chinese tourbillons seen in a few micro brands). I think it's an unfair comparison in that regard, as the tourbillon watch will be finished to an overall higher standard. Do you have a specific open heart in mind? There's probably some out there that would be on par, just don't know of any.

I gotcha! I have no problem with them generally, they just look a bit tacky usually because I've seen them on subpar watches. If we are talking skeletons, I think Raymond Weil makes one for about $2k that's pretty cool (more dressy) and of course Zenith if we're talking sports watches!

I think open heart watches are tacky.
I also think tourbillons are tacky.
Sorry if I just offended everyone, but with apologies to Msr Breguet they are a pocket watch innovation and not a wrist watch innovation.

I do have a skeleton and I love it. I don’t see that as a gimmick because it’s far more difficult than an open heart. Skeletonizing a whole movement is a lot of work, you can’t just remove the dial and call it good. I also think it’s kind of amazing to be able to see the entirety of a movement, like a display case back on steroids.
I’m cool with people messing with me, or hating on my opinions, I don’t take it personally.
I don’t know specifics of the mako release. If you join the mailing list Elshan will give you a day or two heads up and there will be a countdown on the website.

Should I go with the clasp or buckle version? I’m leaning clasp cuz it looks better and fun to slip on.

Also, I like how the buckle is adjustable size and wouldn’t scratch my original bracelet clasp.

This would be for 16710 Coke GMT. Bonus question, where to buy a fake Pepsi bezel insert? Want a cheap ish decent one

Thanks!
