Re: Date Options

Maybe someone should start a survey on date/no-date and then we can all argue about who is right and wrong with regard to date windows.
Since I care less about dial symmetry I guess I'm right... Let's fight... err, this is the CW forum, so let's,politely, agree to disagree. :D

Re: Date Options

It is quite fascinating to see how the humble date window, is regarded so differently, and can impact upon purchasing decisions.

Re: Date Options

I prefer that a watch has a date on it. Generally I prefer a date window but a pointer date, if it is well executed, can be a good substitute. These days I am very reluctant to buy a watch without a date on it. At this point, I think that all but one of the watches I own has a date on it.

Epic.
I particularly liked the Tissot one but it needs to add:
After a long career you will one day own a Rolex but only if you get on the wait list now
Or

Re: Mühle Glashüttte

I think that what Muhle is doing is quite impressive for the price point. As well as the in-house movements, they do more customization on standard ETA/Selitta movements than many manufacturers charging much more do to the same movements. Every movement is stripped and rebuilt in-house, including c...
