Pilo & Co, the independent Swiss watchmaking brand, present the new Automatic Skeleton Tempo, exclusively dedicated to women.
Available in several versions combining different materials and finishes, this family of Swiss Made mechanical watches with automatic winding is open to view both front and back. The new Skeleton Tempo – the ultimate touch of style.
This rare skeleton watch enables both the wearer and onlooker to revel in the magical spectacle of a micro mechanical construction in motion. Women are now looking for a beautiful mechanical watch that does not rely on a battery that runs out every couple of years. What they now seek is the enduring beauty of a mechanical marvel with its tiny beating heart, the core of this stunning automatic watch. The aesthetic charms of a watchmaking movement whose balletic display transforms it into the ultimate, essential luxury accessory. The ideal accompaniment for an outfit, the optimal colour match, the pay-off between the long hours spent perfecting the tiniest detail and the final distinctive touch that makes it stand out from the crowd.
The Pilo & Co Tempo ladies watch movement has been entirely skeletonised in house at Pilo & Co in Geneva. The movement is taken completely apart, re-engineered and hand engraved by Pilo and Co craftsman and then differentiated in rose, yellow or white PVD gold. Finally it is re-assembled by hand and tested under different conditions to assure perfect time keeping. The inside circle is made using natural mother of pearl and the watch case is water resistant to 30 metres, with a screw down crown.
The new Pilo & Co Tempo watch boasts an eye-catching design and colour scheme. Pilo & Co Geneva have designed and manufactured the new Tempo Skeleton Dame especially for women. The 38 mm diameter steel case and sparkling bezel, set with 50 natural cubic zirconia stones, exudes refinement and assertive elegance. In a play on contrasts, the watches are available in several versions. Three models come in steel with daring touches of blue, pink and white, two are PVD rose gold, combined with ivory or black mother of pearl on a finely worked dial. A splash of Luminova is also used to capture and harness the light and let it glow at night, animating these companion timepieces with a visual allusion to the passing of time.
Supplied with a leather strap secured by a deployant buckle, the Tempo Skeleton Dame packs a whole host of refined details catering to those discerning buyers looking for something unique. These contemporary luxury watches are as tantalising to the eye as they are enjoyable to wear. These rare time pieces are sure to attract and inspire many admiring glances and comments from friends and colleagues. Look out for the little touches that make these watches so special, for example the rear glass element is infused with grey which adds a lovely tonal depth to the skin colour of the women wearing the watch.

He has a deep love of aesthetic natural materials such as mother of pearl, fine leather and diamonds which he uses to great effect in their watch range. It is all the more extra-ordinary that they have succeeded in producing such high quality mechanical Swiss watches, made entirely in Geneva, at such affordable prices. In addition they have eleven ranges of watches in very different designs to suit all tastes and provide a wide selection for people to find their ideal Swiss watch.
