XOSkeleton Gen II Superlative Star Dual Dial/Movement Limited Edition Automatic

This is another one-off from the vaults of XOSkeleton! A build for the internal team that demonstrated the two tone idea on 8.5” bracelet, a concept ultimately never released to the public. This is the Gen II 52mm Superlative Star, which means the case is built of 904L steel (what Rolex uses). This piece features the same perfect created rubies used in the long sold out tourbillon, circa 2008. Numbered limited edition of 888, this piece is NOT preowned. Applied markers and luminous hands are layered in 18k gold beneath multi layer anti glare treated sapphire crystal. The movement is a Swiss quartz MOON PHASE, NOT AN AM/PM INDICATOR! And this gets better; in this deal you’ll get a SECOND DIAL (white) with a SECOND SWISS MOON PHASE MOVEMENT (change out is up to you), included! Plus you’ll be upgraded into the white lacquer luxury packaging. Finished work tested to 10 ATM water resistance. Without the second dial/movement this would have released with an msrp in the range of $1995.00. This exclusive package goes to one astute collector for just $599.99, shipping included!

XOSkeleton “Triple Zero” Superlative Star One Of A Kind Generation 2.5 Automatic

We’ve just completed a call with the current XOSkeleton owner and they’ve agreed to give our Talk About Watches collectors an opportunity at one-of-a-kind pieces. This one is a prototype from Generation 2.5. Note the perfectly lab created blue sapphires. These are the same ones that were used in the most sought after XOSkeleton tourbillon of all time. The 50mm case is made of 904L stainless steel (the “Rolex steel”). The movement is an automatic 21 jewel ST 1188 with a date display and a custom rotor. The crystal is anti-reflective treated sapphire, across a matte black dial with applied markers and decorated skeleton hands. Note the 000/400 limited edition; this was built for internal release only. We know of no other example in existence! It was slated to list for $1995.00. Talk About Watches is authorized to release the only one known to exist for $399.99  shipping included!

XOSkeleton Superlative Star “One Off”

XOSkeleton didn’t give us access to this until we’d established an audience for the rare. We’ve more than done that, which brings us to this opportunity. XOS released Gen II circa 2008. The 50mm Superlative Star, famous for the patented “O ring” as well as its use of 904L steel (the Rolex steel) of course sold out immediately and has on rare occasion been seen on the secondary market in used condition. What most collectors couldn’t know, as they were never released, is that XOS was toying with two tone variations. And we now have two example of that fresh from the XOS vault; NOT preowned. Because they couldn’t be, as these variations were never released to the public! As you can see, the respective head, one with the perfect created blue sapphire and the other the perfect created red ruby,  is presented on the alternative gold finished 9” bracelet. This offer goes even further, as they’ve agreed to include an alternate dial assembly as well! To be clear this is not a user interchangeable system and should you wish to install would likely have to be done by high end jeweler, but the fact that they’re including it at all makes this offer unique. We know of no other time historically that such an assembly has been included. Congratulations to whomever acquires this!

XOSkeleton Superlative Star (On Bracelet – Blue/Orange/Pink)

Some months back we began to feature the new XOSkeleton Superlative 42mm, which is the first time this model was done not only in that size but presented on a leather strap. While obviously well received, one of the common questions we got was, “When is the bracelet coming out?”. Well, we have good news and bad news. The good mews is we have them, but in very limited quantity! All 316L steel with the perfect lab created topaz gemstones suspended in the patented O ring design. The same high end mother of pearl dials. Swiss Ronda 775 quartz movement with sapphire coated mineral crystal and tested to 10 ATM water resistance. The huge difference is, of course, the addition of the 8” deployant bracelet! Ok, so what’s the bad news? Apparently XOS is NOT moving forward with significant production! We hope they change their mind. But, as of now, the quote we have from the owner is “no more in the world – will never be produced again”. We urge you to own one of these now! They were scheduled to retail for $995.00 but we have the few factory direct for just $229.00, shipping included! PLUS you’ll be upgraded into the high end “automaton” box! When these are gone, they are gone; please act quickly on this one.

XOSkeleton Generation II Superlative Star Limited Edition Moonphase

This is a find we’ve had on request for about a year and didn’t think we’d get. These are NEW OLD STOCK GEN II SUPERLATIVE STARS!! The original 52mm version made from 904L STEEL (the steel Rolex uses)! This is the crown jewel of the second generation builds! Swiss quartz moon phase under anti-reflective sapphire crystal. Limited edition of 888 that sold out in record time during the original release about a decade ago. It’s important to note that these are NOT preowned; they are new old stock from the XOS vault, with a shopwear rating of 9 out of 10! The black has the perfect lab rubies suspended while the goldtone has the perfect lab sapphires. The msrp on these is 1995.00 if you could find them in this condition and source, which is highly unlikely. We can offer them at 449.99, shipping included. Please act immediately; we only wish we could get more of these!
