    I nearly bought this watch in the silver dial version. Nobody does a big date better, IMO.

    Well, apart from Lange...[​IMG]

    It's lovely though, and I dig blue. Really.

    I much prefer the GO seamless single window big date to Lange's split-window.

    the advantage of the split window, imo, is that it covers up the fact that the 2 digits are not on the same plane. unless, GO has a big date where the dials are on even ground. i have not seen one in a while, so i dont know.

    i never thought about it...but i agree. i had a breitling split window date that i liked, but GO really looks fantastic with the curvatures.

    Yes - GO has them on the same plane - a very innovative accomplishment. They don't need the split window because they have 'nothing to hide'.

    Me too - so close to pulling the trigger. I love the aesthetics , and its size at 42mm - perfect for me.

    Maybe someday I'll scratch that itch

    I can't + this enough. By far my favorite big date windows.

    I love the color of the dial and its a great watch. However, I don't like the big date on it. I find it a distraction on an otherwise perfect and beautiful dial. In addition, I find big dates have become one of the most tiresome and over used features on watches. I don't mind it on a Lange since they were the ones originally using it on their watches, or on JLCs since they developed it for Lange...but I don't care for it on other brands. I'd rather have a regular date window or no date on Cartiers, Breitlings, GOs, and all the others that have added big dates to their watches. Just my 2 cents.

    I love mine, and I probably get more compliments on it than any other watch. I got mine used for a little over $4K, complete with box and papers. Check around online and you can find it a lot cheaper than new.

    ah yes, i though that was the case, but was not sure, so i didnt want to say so. i remember reading about that too in watch time mag. iirc, they had an "exploded view" of the date wheels shoeing how they did that. required a lot of really neat innovation to get that done. totally forgot. now i feel like an idiot.

    but yeah, they do the big date the best imo in that it is even.
