After promising myself I'd hold off on getting me watches for awhile I ended up trading for 3 different watches this week...
The 38mm case wears really well and i appreciat the sinn like look.
That looks super nice! I like Icarus as the name for something of a pilot’s watch. I think Atticus improves on Sinn with the date placement too. I love the touch of blue second hand.
it may (or may not) look better at 6 o'clock but two out of three days are double digits and almost half of them don't contain the thin "1" so the portrait oriented date at 6 o'clock looks squashed together from the 22nd onwards. Having it in landscape mode at 3 o'clock is better for proportions of the font if you ask me.
That makes total sense. As someone who doesn’t use a date complication, I’d never thought much about that. For me, I‘d rather it not be there at all, so functionality has taken a back seat to aesthetics for me. Thanks for teaching me something.
Congratulations on the Atticus. I have a couple myself, not this model. I find them to have excellent fit and finish and are some of my favorite watches that I own.
Congratulations great watch!
