In fact, if you look at the Sapphire, the colour insert on the bezel seems to be contained in a little trench which, if I am not mistaken, ends at approximately 14.75 minutes.
You are absolutely correct Steve. That trench is a lovely, and unique(?) aspect of the design.

Have to agree, stopping at 15 looks better. Just one of those many CW design decisions that's like marmite!
I think this is true of all watch brands and we only have ourselves to blame for being so nit picky. This reminds me of cyclops vs no cyclops, date at 3 or 6, land length and whether they hit the markers, polished vs brushed, display vs solid case backs... the list goes on.
A personal bugbear of mine is the date window lining up with the crown. I cannot stand a 4 o clock crown and 3 o clock date
PS I think the 16 is the right choice personally, but I dont own one (yet)

Yes absolutely - all comes down to personal taste!
