    What is the ugliest, high-end/expensive watch?

    As part of my subscription to Watchtime, I recently received a "complementary" issue of a watch "fashion" magazine with some pretty garish watches with 7 figure price tags. What do you think the ugliest, expensive (relatively speaking) watch is (pictures, please)? My vote is for the limited Daytonas with animal print dials.

    I don't know why people feel the need to do THAT to a watch. I can understand if you want some ice on the watch [not really my style] but a little common sense could prevent the above.

    Maybe we should start doing PSAs about over decorating your timepiece...The More You Know.

    They are both incredibly ugly,but given the price #2 is the ugliest.Also both are very dysfunctional.#2 looks like it sat on the sea bed for too long and a coral reef has begun to form on it.
