Gone almost beyond recognition...

...does a watch like this appeal to you, just curious

Not to me... I call it extreme water damage
Some will call it a leopard dial or smething like that

I like the bezel and crown....
the dial actually looks pretty cool.
I'd be worried about rust on movement...

I think the case and insert look nice. If it was priced right, it might make a fun watch to wear.

I like it and think it's a very cool watch. The seller is one of our members, a great one at that.

Its different, it depends on how you look at it. I think that the photos do not do it justice.

X2. But, as we have learned in the past, there is a buyer for everything - you just have to find him.

I would wear it if the price was right. Cool piece. Would also want to verify the movement is solid. Guessing current $255 won't get it??

I like it, but as others have said that it would have to be priced right and movement looked at.

I like distressed but this one is knackered! Buy it cheap & change to suit you, if possible.

Personally not for me. Looks like it sat in the sun or the oven too long.

I will say the later pics look much better then the first few. I think it would look much better in person.

I think it's great, wouldn't pay a premium for it, but I'd love to wear such a junk watch. You know it was used the way it was intended to be used

The case is amazing. The dial in some photos I love and others not so much.

If this one commanded this kind of price, don't know how that one would be:

I've got to see the movement before bidding though.
