Agree on "Sometimes". As The White Duke does, I like a tasteful 6:00 placement. Unfortunately I can't read the tasteful ones.Zenith does the 4:30 date window very well with its El Primero models.
Regarding the polarizing Date/No Date debate, my preference is "Sometimes." I like a date window for watches I might be wearing to work for several days in a row, as I often forget the date. For watches I primarily wear on the weekends, I don't need to know the date and prefer the cleaner no-date look.
My wife has a very similar watch that she wears nearly every single day. She wears it for everything--riding her horse, going to the beach, etc.
Big date is most distracting and hyperbolic date.
I think it really depends on the watch. There are a few like the Lange 1 and its variations, where it just looks appropriate and it is part of the watch's DNA. But it seemed like after Lange and JLC started using it, several other brands jumped on the bandwagon making watches with this new tacked on complication, simply to be able to say... "We have one too...look at us!."
