The men's watch has a loose rotor plate, which should be easy enough to fix, and maybe I can do something about the women's watch's issue, too.

Both look like they're sterile. Maybe production samples or trade show displays? There seems to be some sort of logo on the men's watch (which looks like it has a women's movement?)

Can any specialists identify the movements? The women's one looks like a standard, but I'm not sure. It doesn't quite look like the skeletonized standard in my Shanghai. And I have no clue about the men's.

I dig the panny-style case, and that there's something funktacular going on on the dial. Looks like both are intended to be their own watches, not replcas (though I'm fairly sure the case on the men's watch comes from a replica manufacturer).

I don't know. $24.01 seemed like a fair price for a watchsmithing experiment and something cool and unique (I think). And a second watch I can either try to flip or keep in reserves as a last minute "Oops I forgot your birthday/anniversary/bridal shower/Christmas" gift.

Yes the woman's watch is a Standard skeleton. As Gigfy investigations revealed, there are several subtly different skeleton cuts anlthough attempts to identify each one to a particular factory has so far eluded me.

The man's watch is a bit of a mystery to me. It could possibly be a Standard auto with a unidirectional winding module :-s Such a variant has certainly been made but I don't have a reference photo. o|

But there's a date wheel and an extra subdial for seconds (that uselessly mimics the big seconds hand). Were those available add-ons for the standard movement? I'll take better pictures once they arrive. Maybe even one of the movement sans-rotor (it's apparently loose anyway).
