Don't mean to sound like a dick, but people are still into Panerai? I thought that was a trend that had passed given that a couple of years back they were all the rage and now I barely hear anyone talking about them.
post #21591 of 48312
150 year old trend.
post #21592 of 48312

Sounds like Stitchy needs to book a trip to Vegas (although truthfully, I'd never go this time of year...I wen't once in May and it was 108F).  Still some of the best most concentrated watch shopping you can find.  I was there in October and the Rolex Boutique had everything you can imagine on display other than SS Daytonas.  There are also boutiques for IWC, VC, Breguet, Breitling, Omega, Cartier (not sure if I left any out), and that doesn't count the AD's that sell all of the above, plus AP, PP, Lange, etc.  No good deals to be had there, but still fun to look.

Agreed, a lone date window does nothing for me. Annual calendar or sans date for me.

Fabulous place to go and look at watches.

for me it depends on the general design of the watch and the placement of the date window. sometimes i like them a lot. other times i think they look out of place.
post #21598 of 48312

What I don't like, usually, is when it's just an odd addition in the 3 o'clock position, or 6 (a German thing, I've noticed).  If there are other complications, like the El Primero chronos where it's stuck in amongst the jumble between 4 and 5, that's cool - it's eccentric and just another detail.  But when the dial is plain, it just looks so much like an afterthought.  Another exception I'd make is Rolex, where the bubble is kind of an iconic asymmetry, but again I like that more on the busier sports watches e.g. Sub, than on the DateJust,, which I'd swap for a no-date Oyster any day.

 

Give me all or give me nothing.  Oh?  Nothing it is then.  Thanks. :)

+1

 

I really don't care for a date window by itself on a dress watch.
