Launched in a limited edition of 13 timepieces, the MU05 Skeleton Armure is Mauron Musy’s first ever skeletonised watch. The independent Swiss brand has been known for its proprietary nO-Ring® technology that ensures their timepieces up to 300 meters water resistance without using any gaskets.
The Skeleton Armure MU05 watch boasts four successive levels of dials, formed by a bezel, a flange, and two levels of dials with different treatments: one in NAC platinum alloy, the other in titanium or gold, depending on the model.
To highlight this deep dive into the heart of the MM01-SK movement, Mauron Musy has decorated the latter with an abundance of relief engravings: the minute circle, the individual serial number, the brand’s emblem, and its own mantra: ‘Swiss Crafted’.
Each surface features its own specific finish – polished, satin, angled, sunburst, or frosted. Every single ray of light and reflection captured within the timepiece’s 44-millimetre diameter is harnessed to maximum effect.
In this special timepiece, Mauron Musy has pierced a few holes on the dial, in carefully selected locations. The aim is to reveal certain key components of the MM01-SK mechanical self-winding movement.
Being able to see the caliber and discern the beat of the escapement without losing anything in terms of readability is what gives the Skeleton MU05 such a subtle balance of technical detail and aesthetic charm. In response to requests from its collectors, Mauron Musy has unveiled just thirteen of these Skeleton Armure MU05 watches in titanium.
At the same time, on request only, Mauron Musy offers a ‘hard gold’ model featuring gold specially treated to make it more resistant to bumps and scratches.
The suggested retail price of Mauron Musy MU05 Skeleton Armure watch in Titanium is CHF 24,700 where as the Gold Edition is priced at CHF 67,000.
