Aesthetics are subjective, but the following five watches are drop-dead gorgeous. (Click here for Ugly Watch Parade.) Of course, you may not agree.

Standing in the middle of the growing crowd, all I could see was the first booth inside Hall 1: a metal-clad honeycomb structure illuminated by a warm orange glow.
