Hi there, I am after a watch like the Skeleton type, I had an Armani Meccanico but it broke outside the warranty. Can anyone recommend one for under £200?

Thanks for looking!

How about a nice ETA powered Swatch?

These are two great examples cheers guys, I really miss seeing all the workings in action! Just seen this but not sure if its the real deal as the language used in the description of some of the watches makes me second guess!

If it is real then the Meccanico's have dropped considerably!

Yes, because they are crap in the main.

Rotary do several skeleton type watches this year for not ridiculous amounts of money!

For example: http://www.thewatchhut.co.uk/Rotary-Gents-Strap-Wa...

And just realised it's an auto too.. a bit of a billy bargain actually!

That is not a bargain, Watchhut are very expensive when you compare them with Amazon and Argos. This auto skeleton Rotary in Argos is only £75 http://www.argos.co.uk/static/Product/partNumber/2...

That's what I thought! And the comments to the Gents Meccanico that I had say it's ideal for the 'single man' - Why the fook would you say that and elliminate half your market!
