Good day to you!

I am in dire need for your knowledgebase, in the search of a serious watch.
After two months of reading through a multitude of Pages, Magazines and harassing friends with my questions, i have decided to register to your forum.

I would like to kindly ask you about your thoughts about timekeeper models responding to the following criteria:

Pricerange: <10.000
Clockwork: Swiss Mechanical Automatic
Style: Skeletonized
Metal(preferably): Stainless Steel
Color preference: Dark(black)
Band:(preferably) Leather
Complications(optional): alarm, date
Glass(preferably): round saphire front and back

Thank you in advance for your replies!
Please forgive my potential errors, english is not my main language.

By "color preference", are you talking about the dial, or the band? In most skeleton watches the dial color is just the natural color of the metal.

I've never seen a skeleton watch with an alarm or date complication, usually they are just simple 3-hand watches, with the occasional chronograph.

Maurice Lacroix makes a skeleton watch that matches most of your criteria.

Oris has some nice skeleton watches as well, although none that I know of with black dials.

Hello and thank you for being the first reply!

Yes indeed i was referring to the dial.
The one nicer model with alarm is the Vulcain, this one comes with alarm, but they have a model with alarm and date.
I like the direction your proposed model goes in, very nice watch, but it seems not to be an automatic watch.

Unable to post photos as replying from an iPad but these are some options. Might not cover all your criteria but worth a look. I'm a huge skeleton fan as well so it offers some research for me too

I own an Oris skeleton. The Williams one which is partially exposed but has an inner black and blue dial

What about this one ?

Not exactly skeletonized but boy, that's one interesting dial setup :p

Also , gotta love the power reserve indicator, best complication an automatic can have IMHO and also, something I've never seen before, a power reserve indicator for the alarm |> That wins me over, if only I can get my hands on the ~13.000-15.000 $ these babies cost :-d

There's lots of different versions available http://www.blancpain.com/en/taxonomy/term/244/list

I have to admit that a power reserve gauge is one neat complication, although i prefer seeing the innards of a watch to a dial. Skeletonized is not optional for me, its a must.
In fact i have fallen deeply in love with the omega de ville tourbillion, but since i am no millionnaire i can forget about that watch. But i found out that it is the appearing innerds of the mechanism that i've fallen in love to, so please no watches with full dials.

My advice would be to take $1,500 and buy the Chinese tourbillon of your choice and take the other $8,500 and buy another serious Swiss timepiece.

Im surprised no one suggested the Chronoswiss OPUS Skeleton in DLC. Beautiful Beautiful Watch. Just a little small for my tastes.
