'The Last Laugh' by Mr Jones Watches Kills Off Some Hands

Say your last goodbye to the hands that indicate hour and minute -- on your watch of course because Mr Jones Watches' latest timepiece named 'The Last Laugh' doesn't have any.

Instead, the watch features a skull, a tragic smile and teeth that move -- and that's how you can see time pass. 'The Last Laugh' was created by Crispin Jones (a.k.a. Mr Jones) and comedian William Andrews and thus, it's the embodiment of tragic and comedic concepts.

Firstly, it is a constant reminder to its owner that life is short -- a tragic, but motivating thought. Second, it refers to the constant state of mind of stage performers, like creator (comedian, writer and stand-up performer) William Andrews.
As he puts it "the skull references the‘tears of a clown’ concept, the widely held belief that comedians are essentially quite sad in nature and the rather pointless desire that many stand-ups have to have last laugh."

Third, 'The Last Laugh' is just a really cool watch with a unique twist.
