Looks so much better without the date! Pure and clean design.

There is no doubt that the JLC movement is more refined and appealing, but they had a history of not being particularly reliable, particularly in a tool watch. I too would go with a Mark XV over the Mark XII, but an early one with tritium dial and the sam...
