Earlier in my life I wore watches with no date feature, heck that's all they had so of course a date never entered my reality.
I have been wearing watches these days with a date. And now and then when I try to wear my Rolex Ex 1 I feel lost without the date.
I just bought a Tudor Day Date, not arrived yet, and I'm wondering if I get used to it could I go back to a simple date only watch?

So, could you go back?

Nope - I need to know the date, too. I suspect that's one of the reasons why I don't get a day/date watch like your Tudor. I'd get used to THAT too soon.

By the way...I thought the Tudor equivalent to Rolex Day-Date is called Prince Date-Day? Just checking.

Your right. Printed on the dial is; Tudor Oyster Prince Day-Date.
When I get it I can post a few photos.
The dial is bright red, maybe that's why I got it at a good price. But, I've been looking for a red dial watch for a change of pace.

I find watches without date windows less distracting when actually looking to see what time it is. And it seems like whenever I needed to know the date, the minute hand was always directly over the window. :cursing:

Nope, don't care for a watch without a date. Granted I rarely use the watch for the date, but without one on the watch, somethings just 'missing'.

now that said it's not because I got used to a Day-Date function. I couldn't stand not having a date before I ever got a day-date model. But I have no problem going between the day-date and models with just a date. Though I love the day-date complication....

Doesn't matter either way for me. I perfer smaller, dress watches (vintage Omega, Hamiltons...) without day or date. That's probably one thing I never consider when shopping for a watch. Heck, with my old eyes, can't read it without glasses most of the time anyway.

If I had a choice to buy the same watch either with or without the date, I would almost always choose the no date version. I just like the cleaner look and I don't use the date feature much anyway. The one exception is when I travel, in which case I prefer a Day Date. This is the reason my Hamilton Khaki King is my "go to" watch when I travel.

No problem at all...I can go from a day, date , year perpetual to a time only with ease...in fact I'm wearing a time only watch now...



Really...what else can I do ? What would you suggest I do with these ...
































There are too many nice watches to limit yourself by making such rules as must have a date etc.


Cheers,
Rob
