Completely different design goals and languages.
To be honest, and I think I can speak for Doctok as well, it's not a matter of elegance. It just doesn't feel like an expensive, luxury watch becoming of it's price. For example, the 15202 and the steel Bulgari ultra thin are elegant, yet feel robust and worth the price.
