The bodybuilding watch collection has design elements inspired by things like dumbbells and gym equipment. The rear of the case says "No Pain No Gain." From his action hero days, you'll see things that recall The Terminator, Predator, True Lies, and many more of the military or action movies that helped make Arnold Schwarzenegger the household name that he is today. One of the watches has part of a skull on the dial with a red eye which is clearly a nod to the T-800 android from The Terminator. Another model has a crown with a small pin that is meant to resemble a grenade pin as a testament to all the weapon-wielding characters he has played over the years.
There are many people who are far more educated when it comes to each and every limited edition Panerai watch out there, but I am rather sure that this watch has been produced in the recent past by Panerai already.

MadeWorn's approach is more like that of Bamford Watch Department - a company who has some parallels to what MadeWorn is doing. Bamford is a Rolex watch modifier who takes new Rolex watches and changes their textures and colors. MadeWorn, with its still very new collection of watches, takes new or vintage Rolex watches and customizes them with engravings or special bracelets. In fact, Halvorson likes the term "carvings" more than engravings, as it implies more manual labor.

There is, of course, some asymmetry on the dial in regard to the orientation of the movement, but I think it looks cool. It adds just a bit of tension to the design which is part of its aggressive stance.
