It shows craftsmanship. It doesn’t show why silly decorations are added to a watch. They add nothing.
Never DID understand the day/night feature ... stick your stupid head out the window !

You sir, have no taste, no offense, but you are like a lot of men of a certain sort.
Then you wouldn't like the Sistine Chapel ceiling on which Michelangelo crammed his art to every square inch of the plain plaster.....i.e., hundreds of male and female figures, flora and fauna of many kinds, geometric designs, angels, pillars, cherubs and crowd scenes, just to name a few of the products of his inspired brain.
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, it's true, but I find the decorations adorning the ancient watch pictured above to be not silly at all.....but as beautiful and inspired in its own way as is the magnificent art in St. Peter's.
