The time is displayed on the skull's teeth. The upper teeth show the hours, while the lower teeth show the minutes.
The unusual Last Laugh watch is a link to the tradition of the memento mori - an object designed to remind us that life is brief and we should enjoy it while we're here.
The eyes and the nose are mirrored and the overall impression is of a gleefully absurd memento mori.
The Last Laugh is powered by a 20 jewel automatic mechanical movement. This means there is no battery. The motion of wearing the watch provides the power to wind it up and keep it running.
The watch movement has a 'jump-hour' feature, so the hour flips over exactly on the 59 -> 00 minute transition.
