The Mr. Jones 'The Last Laugh Tattoo' watch is the latest edition added to Crispin Jones' already impressive series of designs. This time, the designer has added a little color instead of the standard black and white theme used in previous watches.

Although Jones designed the watch, it uses artwork by British tattoo artist Adrian Willard. The graphic features the image of a sugar skull, commonly seen in Mexico's Day of the Dead festival, in which people remember friends and family who have died. The watch is also linked to the tradition of memento mori, which is "an object designed to remind us that life is brief and we should seize the moment while we're here," according to Mr. Jones. The upper jaw displays the hours while the lower ones depict the minutes.

The Mr. Jones 'The Last Laugh Tattoo' watch is morbidly chic, and definitely a must-have this season.
