By Jove, that's got to be the third time that I see this nice (in terms of finishing, not of design), but otherwise idiotic contraption here.
Artistry's artistry, but there's literally no justification for something quite as idiotic as a key-wound watch with no dust cover to protect the movement against sweat and all sorts of filth that can get inside the case through the holes for winding and setting arbors. Judging by the level of finishing on the watch, and that the movement was designed from scratch, that guy really could do something as simple as giving the watch a hinged dust cover.
You cannot explain away a wantonly immoral act, because you think that it is connected to some higher purpose.
