My Pet Peeves
Rolex deliver almost every watch on a bracelet.
Rolex never heard of a sapphire crystal case back.
AP thinks a Royal Oak is enough.
PP is afraid to come with modern watches.
Brand neutral Pet Peeves:
Complex strap attach systems, you can only chose what the brand delivers for the watch, you can not give a leather custom strap craftsman the order to make a nice unique strap for your watch.
Waiting when Montblanc comes with a fully branded Minerva.
The colored stone on a crown of a Cartier.
The fear IWC have to loose some water resistance when using a sapphire crystal case back on a Aquatimer.
Omega doesn’t fear it, even a Planet Ocean have a nice view on the movement.
Copycat behavior. Every brand comes with a sport steel watch.
Not a Pet Peeve for me, but many dislike this phenomenon,
Limited Editions for the sake of Limited Editions.

Like what Lankysudanese said....
Date window at 4:30pm is a no-go for me...which is why I can't get any sought after APs P Brands that makes models that I cannot tell them apart, like Panerai. I also do not like imbalanced dial, a small seconds window on the side...like the FPJ CBs and e...

As weems said, a pet peeve for many, and certainly for me. I'm especially disappointed to see GS going down the limited edition route. If you're the type of person who heavily analyzes your options before a purchase, it makes that analysis impossible. By ...
What I find really annoying
Is the lack of available product... it drives me crazy not to be able to walk into a store and just order a piece that I like. Waiting 1 year or so would be perfectly acceptable but having to buy less interesting pieces in order to have the honour to be o...
Great thread, Douglas!
My personal pet peeves: * cost-saving measures with simultaneous profiteering, especially: • lovelessly produced movements without precision work in the high price (haute horlogerie) segment or • movements that are too small in cases that are too large or...
I do not like cathedral hands. Non quick set dates. Manual wind watches that are not comfortable to wind (Speedy pro) Brand names that remind me of feces (Shinola) Watch shapes that look like toilets (Towson Watch Company) Too many contrasting fonts on a ...
How about odd lug sizes
19 - 21 -23 just are not necessary. Surely an extra millimeter will not ruin the golden proportions of the watch; and open up the options for the next strap.
