I feel as though the trend may be a result of the lack of attention the designers and engineers receive. Considering on most older watches, and most high end watches don't show the inner intricacies, many people who buy them dont realize the level of detail that goes into a them. The thousands of pieces are covered by a face that hides all or most of the interior workings. Skeletal watches seem to resist this as they expose all of the inner workings and therefore they may be a result of justifying all of the work for the designers. Though they are damn hard to read sometimes.
Its like people who buy 6 figure cars but never stop to spend the time to look at the engine, so Ferrari and Lamborghini put windows on top of the engine block which showcased the beautiful engines. Its form and function working together to create an aesthetically pleasing piece both in cars and in watches.
The opus does a wonderful job showcasing the intricacies of the device while also using a more modern and sophisticated style of movement. It is much easier to read than other skeletal watches, though the price and the weight are most likely an issue for me.
