Date, day or nothing on a watch face

What's your view of date on a watch face. Do you like a day and date complication. Is it okay if just a date or better if it's just a clean watch face. I generally like a clean face, but a day/date on...

commented on Tell me something interesting about your watch ·

I got a rotary chrono for my 40th birthday. It a black watch and times the football match (UK, so soccer USA) I referee.

commented on Explain the Apple Watch hate to a newbie ·

People use to be the same when we just had horses and then cars replacement over several decades. A smart watch doesn't have to bleep, make noises etc it is just a mini computer on your wrist. Alot of younger people don't have watches (or only a smart watch), the watch is likely to go the way of the horse.

I have had an apple watch and it's great how the apple eco system works, but daily charging is a pain (just like winding a watch!). I am android now and have my Garmin on all the time, only call and SMS alerts on vibrate. The Garmin is for fitness and traing. I normally wear my Garmin on my armband. I also wear one of my mechanical watches, current favourite is the San Martin BB58 hommage. I don't see the problem with smartwatches, smart Vs complications.

On a positive, I have got one of my none children interested in mechnical watches.

commented on Who sleeps with their watch on? ·

I wear my garmin to track sleep and also have amy 5:30am alarm to get me up and out for the morning run. I do also wear range of normal quartz and automatic watches, my fav is the blackbay 39.

commented on Thoughts on the PRX? ·

I like the PRX and have the blue face version. On reflection, I wish I had got the quartz version as it more in keeping with the original. The extra £300 for the powermatic just feels a bit too much, but I did buy one and I do like to wear it.

commented on This Invicta “1953” completely erased by craving for a Lorier and is holding me off from a BB58 ·

Not on the 1953, which improves the look. Very Rolex.

commented on Who hates the new digital Tissot PRX !!! ·

£40 Casio, do I need to say anymore!
