Checking the date with no date window
This may look and sound like a ridiculous idea and I get that, but I have recently moved to a Black Bay Heritage and I do find that not having the date easily to hand can be a problem.
A problem? OK, it’s a first world problem that is not exactly life changing and I do find that checking the date on my iPhone is, for some reason, quite annoying.
Sometimes you just want to glance and get information which is one of the reasons I bought the Black Bay. The highly readable dial is perfect for quick time checking, but alas no date.
Is a calendar ring a crazy idea? It seems logical because where else can you put the date if you do not have a date window? It may look a little silly when viewed closely, but from a practice point of view at least there is some merit to the idea. Am I wrong?
