Lol. What are those red fan blades/propellers?
My pet theory is that they are blowers to increase internal pressure when the watch is used at great depths so as to equalize it with that of the water outside. When you take the same watch to high altitude or space, the propellers reverse and suck air out of the watch to equalize pressure. This watch both sucks and blows.Lol.

Take that back about the GShock!I'm not sure you can make a case for "universally ugly," since everyone's tastes are different. I mean, the Quill & Pad article showed me a series of watches that I thought were incredibly tacky, but I wouldn't call them ugly. Okay, maybe I'd call the Kanye West one ugly.
Me personally, I find Panerai & G-Shock watches to be pretty ugly, even though both brands have legions of fans. I also find square watches, like the JLC Reverso and the Cartier Tank, to not be to my taste; yet I acknowledge that both watches are iconic designs. Hell, I'll even go so far as to call the Rolex "Hulk" Submariner ugly, even though Rolex Nation is now honorbound to call a fatwa on me for disparaging a Rolex design. But again, this is all my personal taste.
