Odessa Skelton

“Odessa Skeleton” is the first skeleton model from TASAKI TIMEPIECES that take their inspiration from the universe.
The full-skeleton view of the movement gives a sense of the spectacular scale of the universe, while the “perlage” pearl pattern on the bridge swirls like the milky way, portraying the flicker of innumerable stars. And the SAKURAGOLD™ plate provides a beautiful contrast of material and colour, evoking the alluring hue of the cosmos.

The production of a skeleton watch required the development of a unique new design starting from the shape of the bridge, to create the perfect harmony of functionality and aesthetic beauty. From the simple pattern on the index plate, without even any numbers, to the delicate hand-crafted “perlage”. The beauty of a skeleton structure, with its flowing sense of vigour. Using TASAKI original SAKURAGOLD™ with its soft hues of pink on white, this is the ultimate ‘Made in Japan’ piece from TASAKI, exuding the essence of this exclusive jeweller.

On sale August 18 - 23 at Tobu Department Store Ikebukuro (8F) and from August 25 at the TASAKI Ginza Flagship Store.
