Were it not there, would you be asking if we really need that "calendar page?" I feel the two rather "balance" one another out. What say you to that?

So many ways to look at these elements. Of course I understand your wish for greater simplicity. But on spring drive models I'd posit that since there is nothing going tick tock inside, one may be lulled into a false sense of security—as if the movement were quartz (though obviously the seconds hand makes it supremely clear that it isn't). Just an idea. I've really no clue but for that glimmer of an answer. Hey, have a great day, IWC. I always enjoy your participation here! Fred

Do you mean the date window? I don't like those either but this one is not objectionable. Aside from the PR indicator being a sore detail, it's also pointless on an automatic watch. I think they are more appropriate on manual wind watches. Anyway, it is what it is...
