+1000. Dates are at best acceptable for me, if the rest of the watch is great. [nt]

It depends on the watch for me....

For a watch that is dedicated to the calendar, it works perfectly.




To a watch that is dedicated to pure measurement of time, like a chrono, its a no-go for me. If a watch has a chronograph, for me it should not have a date on the dial. There are of course some exceptions, but as a general rule.








When form follows function, as in annual . . .

. . . or perpetual . . .




. . . calendars: yes.  Otherwise, not so much . . .

Well, I said it thousand times. No date, unless it is a big date or a perpetual or annual calendar.

I would add the vintage, at a time when a date was something remarkable, a true plus. 

Best,
