A beautiful watch with intricate detail and a stunning design. It looks even better than the picture, the see through transparent face and little amethyst jewels add the finishing touches. A perfect present for someone else or yourself.

Lovely intricate face and strap design in mint condition. The clock face is easy to read with lovely gold colour running through, the watch strap was a little stiff but the leather soon
soon relaxed. Something slightly satisfying about manually winding it as well, also means theres no battery that needs replacing.

Lovely watch, and at £160 it is well-priced.

Typically lasts about 24 hours when fully wound.

Feels like a quality timepiece with gorgeous details a few friends commented thinking it cost upwards of £300.

As it is a mechanical watch, there is an audible tick when its wound, but that doesnt bother me personally.

Definitely worth the purchase, particularly with the free next-day delivery!

Fantastic watch at a fantastic price!

I was sceptical about the colour of the gold plate and wrist strap but the picture on the website showing the man wearing it gives a very accurate portrayal. The gold is rich and compliments the brown leather scrap beautifully.

The timepiece itself is fantastic. The Roman Numerals are clear and make reading the watch very easy, and the black hands contrast nicely to the silvery outer dial where the Numerals are located. Of course the best feature of the watch is in the design around 90% of the watchs inner mechanism is viewable and the architecture is fascinating and beautifully arranged. This skeleton watch really is amazing to look at. My only personal issue is the lack of date dial and the purple coloured screw heads a bronze colour would hav been more fitting.

Finally, the manual winding mechanism on the side of the watch is beautifully put together. It does not feel at all cheap or lose, and winding the watch as it is mechanical is satisfying.

I could nto recommend this watch enough

he watch is fabulous, quite simply the most beautiful watch I have ever seen. I bought this for my partner for Christmas but the previous model had a fault. He would not hear of having an alternative and so I went to the Watch shop instead.
The movement is perfect, hypnotic, and we keep finding new aspects to exclaim about. the workings are exquisite, the whole effect is very clean and precise, and quite frankly, a beautifully shiny sparkly thing. A prefect present I congratulate myself!

I saw this watch a while ago and the design impressed straight away- something a bit different to other mens watches with lots of dials or just looking a bit plain. Definitely not disappointed on arrival. The watch looks elegant, poised and looks like it costs a whole lot more than it does. Mechanism works a treat and Im a fan of the more traditional wind up approach. Would 100% recommend.

Very pleased with this, love the inner workings on show. The watch face is a little bigger than I thought but I dont find that a problem. The leather strap has eight holes so you should be able to find one that fits, two bands on the strap to stop the excess flapping - one by the buckle and one thats free to move so you can set it where you want. The watch itself just tells the time, no more no less. Mechanical wind up so no worries about battery life. I would recommend to anyone.

Very eye-catching. Overall this watch is very good, also looks very good with the gold and dark leather strap. I would say this is more of a dress watch, however I often wear this even with jeans and a formal shirt. Only down side about this watch is that it ticks VERY loudly, especially when its fully wound up.

It is a frequent paradox that the craftsmanship and intricate function of a mechanical watch can evoke such respect and mesmerisation, but so many specimens enclose their inner workings in casings that obscure them from view, as though drawing an acousmatic screen - but not this watch.

This is a watch that sits ornately on the wrist and catches the eye without being loud, gaudy or in poor taste. For those averse to the connotations or aesthetic of the gold-plated option, a stainless steel finish is available.

This watch oozes refinement and elegance, and owes itself to all wearing applications, unlike some higher end options, which so frequently sit inside their box as opposed to on a wrist.

my son really wanted a skeleton watch. He loves being able to see the cogs working.

The watch face is quite chunky, perhaps because of the mechanism. The gold case and leather strap go well together and are of reasonable quality.

My son has enjoyed the novelty of it.

When my watch arrived, it looked even better than on the website.the decoration and workings are much more defined and give the dial a real look of quality. I normally like a bracelet strap, but agaIn the black leather strap gives the watch an understated elegance.Being a manual wind up again enhances the joy of having a watch like this.
My only negative about the watch is it can be a little difficult to see the time occasionly due to the Skelton face blending with the hands. But overall I love this watch.

My watch is the Rotary skeleton watch and I absolutely adore the item, its so enticing being able to see how all the dials inside rotate and work! I have had my watch for no longer than 2 weeks and my wrist already feels naked without it!
I love the way Rotary can make such a vintage and classy watch in the 21st century im in love!
One possible drawback to the item is the strap, I love the strap itself however only after minor use there is an area which has lost the top layer of leather, although this is a problem there is not many ways around it, leather is leather and a metal bar rubbing against it is going to cause slight damage.
I think the colour of the strap is fantastic, it looks brown from a distance but once you look close you can actually see that it is a really deep red/brown colour and it compliments the gold face of the watch perfectly.
Bearing everything in mind, if somebody gave me this watch to wear for a week and then make my mind up if I would spend £160 of my own money I would jump at the chance. I would thoroughly reccomend the product AND the customer service, I got my watch the next day after ordering it and I didnt even pay for express delivery, genuinely brilliant customer service and a straight 10/10 from a very happy customer.

I am extremely happy with my purchase, I expected something delightful, and my expectations were surpassed. It is clean, elegant and has excellent visibility of the workings.

My one criticism is not of the watch, but of the web page, as the close-up in the video shows the watch unwound. For a watch where the entire point is to see the cogs turning please could you re-shoot the video with the workings in motion, as it would make selection so much easier.

The product looks expensive and has a really nice shine. It arrived in a nice box protected within a tamper proof box which I was impressed with.
The watch strap really complements the watch face and the skeleton aspects to it. The colour is much more gold than In the photo, however once put onto skin it really stands out and looks very unique.
Im very happy with this purchase and the price it cost.

After receiving the watch I ordered very quickly, I was impressed that the watch was packaged neatly. The watch itself was in perfect condition with a protective screen over the watch face. My favourite detail of the watch if the skeleton feature, showing the cogs within the watch. Colours were perfect and as the leather strap was adjustable it fitted well on the person I bought it for. The only thing I didnt like was how the cushion the watch was on didnt fit properly in the box.

Lovely product, categorised strangely on the website as it is the same model as the silver and rose gold skeleton, just in another colour variation. Bought for Christmas fort other half and he loves it.

Be aware that I dont think it is a kinetic charge, needs to be manually charged.

Excellent service from watch shop, and so much cheaper than advertised in the shops :

I bought this watch as a Christmas gift for my boyfriend, so he has yet to see it and Im unaware of his reaction to it. But having received it really quickly I love the look of the watch, its beautiful and I think hes going to like it. I was a bit unsure of the brown strap when ordering it as I would have preferred a black one, but it is a very nice dark brown and Im very happy with it. I cant wait until Christmas to give it to him!

This is such a beautiful Watch! I bought it for my partner for a birthday present. He loved the unusual design and the fit of the watch. It is excellent quality and looks really great on. It even sounds great!! I originally looked at the black and rose gold version, but this was a bit more dressy. The brown and gold design is great for evening events but also good for the office!

Watch came the next day which was brilliant and was gift wrapped as it was a birthday present. However the catch on the buckle is too short so the watch can not be worn as it pops off. Very disappointed as it was expensive and spoiled the birthday gift as it could not be used. Have requested a bag to send it back in which is being sent to me now.

Very nice quality watch, the detail inlayed into the cogs is absolutely incredible and it is very fascinating watching the mechanical movements of the cogs. Very nice colour of gold and the watch does fit very nicely on my wrist, the quality of the leather on strap is very nice but can be deemed a little bit stiff of which is not an issue as leather always softens up over a little bit of time and this watch is made to wear alot and show off in my opinion.
Otherwise it couldnt be happier with this watch, looks nice, feels nice and is a very beautiful, have even received many compliments from friends, family and even customers at work on how nice it is, couldnt be happier with the watch. The only thing I could criticise is the instructions packed with the watch arent the most clear but the watch itself is perfect gives the appearance of an £8000 watch but for way better value for money.

This watch looks elegant, intracit yet delicate at the same time! For people with a mechanical mind you will love this watch as I could spend hours just watching the cogs and dial. And the style and colours suit practically all clothing!

Ordered this watch as a treat for myself for my 21st birthday. Very well presented watch, exactly as expected. The visible cogs and mechanism makes it very interesting to look at. The lifetime guarantee, providing it is serviced, is also a nice bonus.

I have been wearing the watch for just over a week, so although my experience with it is limited, I have no negative feedback about the watch itself.

One slightly negative comment is the strap. Although the strap looks absolutely fantastic and feels great it is real leather it has already got a couple of marks on. When I started wearing the watch, I wore it on a slightly looser setting for around 2 days, before wearing it on a tighter setting. There is now a mark where the watch was fastened previous to me adjusting it, so a little disappointing, but a brilliant watch none the less.

Overall, a lovely watch at a reasonable price RRP at 225, sold in John Lewis for 225 so Watch Shop was the cheapest place to purchase it. Perfect for a special gift or as a treat to yourself.

I bought this watch as a gift and he absolutely loved it! It looks even better than on the website, the detailing inside the watch is very intricate and gleams beautifully. The strap is a bit stiff but I expect that will lessen with wear.

I could not be happier with this watch. Having been unsure about ordering it without trying it first, the risk absolutely paid off, and the gold and dark brown complement virtually any outfit that Ive tried it with.

The beauty of the piece is unrivalled, and Ive had quite a few compliments on it. The single caveat Id have to any potential buyers is that the watch does have a tendency to a minute back or forward over the scale of 3 or 4 days. However, as I have a phone with an Internet connected clock on it at all times, this is not of bother to me, as such a small discrepancy goes mostly unnoticed and is easily rectified. As I consider the piece mostly an item of exquisite jewellery, the aesthetics of the watch trump any minor timekeeping quibbles by orders of magnitude.

I highly recommend the piece, and the exemplary service provided by The Watch Shop.

Very pleased with the product its self. A lot of complements already. The ticker is loud, but it gives the watch a very retro feel especially with the wind up mech. The strap is decent it has softened up very quickly, I feel it will need replacing after a year or so. Over all would definitely recommended.

My parents bought this watch for me for my 21st birthday and I absolutely love it. Not only does it look cool but its great to see the skeletonised movement working all day long. It says its waterproof but I dont think I would chance it in the water as it has a leather strap. The only criticism is the lack of information about it in the Rotary instruction booklet. Otherwise its perfect!!

Right, I bought this watch a few months ago, so thought Id wait a bit to write a review. Im gonna start with the only thing wrong with this watch.... Its the strap. After a month or so the top layer of the strap is coming off and it looks very worn already and looks ugly, so needs replacing at some point.

Not a big deal I suppose when you see the watch on your wrist for the first time, the quality of the watch itself is impressive, the detail is incredible, the gold edges of the watch still look very shiny and scratch free. If you like the look of this watch in the pictures then you will definitely like the look when you open the box.

One other minor point to makes. It ticks rather loudly. It doesnt bother me, but its worth a mention. So long as you are prepared to buy a new strap after a couple of months then its definitely worth a buy, its VERY eye catching and has caught the eye of a few people in the office.

I bought this watch as a gift from my Grandad after results day. This watch is an excellent watch for its price, it is obviously no A.Lange, however it is marvelous to look at, and it does infact give the impression of a very expensive watch. When purchasing a watch you should definitely find the watch that you would be proud to wear and own before looking at the price tag, which led me to viewing this watch I love wearing this watch, I feel confident as it ties together alot of various outfits, finishing off each look with the edge of smart attire and finally the price tag was hardly anything to ignore at this price I literally lept at the watch. The colouring of the gold is wonderful, not too yellow and neither too dull and compliments alot of different colours of clothing the strap I did find alittle stiff on the first wearing, but after the 3rd time it was worn it has moulded nicely into the shape of my wrist and sits comfortably with a varying amount of hole sizes I felt I could chose between 3 different holes that would fit comfortably. I couldnt stop looking at the watch once I openned it, the inner workings are amazing to watch and are definitely the main feature. The clear back glass is a different feature to most watches, allowing you to see all the way through you watch, I was wondering how much you would be able to see through the watch and whether an automatic version would be a better option but after comparing in person this clear skeleton was the prefered option without the obstruction of the automatic metal winder. I literally watched time pass for hours when I first wound up this watch, it is a great, smart/casual watch, I have recieved may compliments and questions on this watch already. It also comes in a very nice case, a soft matte black box, which includes a cushion to place the watch over when it isnt being worn, which to be honest, showcases the watch wonderfully. I was worried when purchasing a manual watch about the life of the fully wound spring, but this watches spring time is very good, I believe it lasted me around 36 hours, which is fine for those special occasions and obviously can just be rewound as it takes a few seconds and you wont want to take it off. A brilliant buy and a definite recommendation, excellent for a gift or an addition to a collection, or as for me, my first watch!

I couldnt be happier with this watch. I have been on the look out for a skeleton watch for a long time but they are all beyond my financial reach. Here however is a beautiful watch which has all the looks of a £7k skeleton watch but at a tiny fraction of the price. I was concerned that the gold plating may look a little bright but it is spot on and really looks a lot more expensive than it actually is. I have owned and worn this watch for just over a week now (still not removed protective films) and in that time its been admired by pretty much everybody I have met! Everybody wants to know what it is and where I got it from (not told anybody yet as dont want everyone to have one) and Ive caught a couple of people staring at the my wrist "fascinated" and "hypnotised" by the mechanism (their words not mine.) If Im being really picky there are two slight problems. The first is the leather strap is a bit stiff. Not a major problem as I know it will soften in time. The other problem however is the winder which lacks a little bit of grip. Ive found using a tissue or corner of a shirt gives enough purchase to wind it (which has been once every 2 days for me.) Other than that I am very pleased with this very unusual and distinctive timepiece.

A beautiful Rotary, mechanical watch. Lovely leather strap. You can see all the moving parts. Very eye catching gold colour case and good size watch face. Keeps accurate time. Needs to be wound up in the morning but so much better than battery operated watches. Most definitely old school and wonderful for it!

A gorgeous watch that attracts a lot of compliments. The internal movements are mesmeric to watch. The only downside to this watch is that you have to wind the watch manually every day or so. If you leave it longer than that, I've noticed the time begin to slip away.

A bargain at this price - it certainly looks a lot more expensive than it is! Woudl definitely recommend as a fabulous gift for someone special, or a treat for yourself.

Is a privilege to share with you my entire satisfaction of this exemplary ClassC, yet modern in time, in which gold gives a jewel wrist unusual.

The watch loks lovely and attracts a lot of attention. I particularly like the fact that both sides are see through.

The only negatives are that it needs frequent winding up and for a watch which is supposed to be waterproof, why fit it with a leather strap?
