Two new Luxury Divers (if the words can be used together) one evoking the sunrise or sunset; the other moonlight. These are serious watches, approximately 45mm x 16mm. They feature Zaratsu polishing, cermet (ceramic metal) bezels, and Spring Drive movemen...

Calendar Page?

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 w... 

LOL! That's too funny
