Interesting. I never even knew occlusion and/or omission was a thing. Never bothered me. I do love reading about what makes people tick though, so your post was great.Absolutely 99.9% of the time, yes, occluded dials = deal-killer. I find they have a bad super-graphics feel, even at such small scale, most of the time.
The Lange 1815 (which I think is generally gorgeous) looks innocuous at a glance, but then seeing it on the wrist the chopped 6 ultimately is irritating and insulting more than anything. I always want the seconds hand to just kick the
6entirely off the dial.
Chopped 2-4-8-10s are even more awkward on 2+ sub-dial watches. The 2 Breitlings are bad, and the PP is a complete disaster imo. By comparison I think that the G-P posted above your post is much more coherent and elegant, regarding the numbers/dials only (other aspects of the design bother me).
Removing color, finish, texture, etc., entirely, I know which dials I would choose, and which I would lose.

The 1815 u/d Walter Lange LE with the hinged case back is simply gorgeous imoI'd say this is "ok but not ideal". I feel like I prefer cut off numbers over the shrunken numbers from FPJ for example.
I'll admit though that the 1815 u/d is one of my favorite watches, and I wouldn't hesitate for a minute even though there are both cut off and omitted numbers.
To be specific I don't like cut-off numbers at all, but do not mind, in most cases, fully omitted numbers. That Lange is super.Interesting. I never even knew occlusion and/or omission was a thing. Never bothered me. I do love reading about what makes people tick though, so your post was great.
My occlusion and omission afflicted dress watches....I love them!

I see.To be specific I don't like cut-off numbers at all, but do not mind, in most cases, fully omitted numbers. That Lange is super.
The Omega is beautiful too, I used to have a similar one, but the cut 5 and 7 "bother" me a bit. The leaf hands are so elegant though I could almost overlook the cut numbers.
Not nearly as much. Some date windows are great, and to me are much more subjective as elements; it really depends on the watch.I see.
Are you against date windows as well?
I'm completely with you there, at 6, 12, and a 100!Occlusion for me is a greater crime than omission. YMMV.
The one example that really used to get on my nerves (still does to this day) because I truly like the watch quite a bit otherwise: the IWC Portugieser Chronograph.
Nope.Excellent guess by double00.
I will take a secondary stab at it and surmise it's possibly the design / length of the tail on the seconds hand?
Nothing like a good nit-picking session LOL. Nearly every watch is "flawed" in some way after all.
Both excellent guesses, but I think double00 and yourself are maybe micro-scoping a bit too much. Maybe zoom out just a little?
I'll be doing a quick PS mock-up while you think on it; I think it will be very obvious then. The hint word starts with a "b"....
