    So this is a point I see brought up a lot in YouTube watch reviews: "I wish the date wheel was color matched, it would make the dial more symmetric" It seems like something people automatically blurt out without considering how it would actually affect the dial symmetry. I think a lot of the...

    The popular opinion is that 6 o'clock placement for the date window is more aesthetically desirable than 3 o'clock placement. The main reason being that at 6 o'clock the dial looks more symmetrical. My question is for those people who actually prefer the 3 o'clock date. What are your reasons for...

    Based on engineering of a mechanical movement? Because if you wear it left handed, you can see the date first, if you wear long sleeve clothing? Wouldn't a Grand Seiko quartz with double windows (edit: big date complication) at 6 o'clock be a sweet design :-s

    Some have probably helped me decide between another Orient and this Orient. You can see that thread here...if you want... Anyways. I received the watch last Friday, and of course since I've never had an automatic before or...

    With the watches these days getting bigger and bigger and the movements inside being the same, I find that in most watches the date window is located too close to the center. In most cases the date window seems like a design afterthought placed there just because of market requirements - a...

    All, I'm after something very thin and need a date window. $200 or less would be great but I'll keep saving for something more expensive. MUST HAVE: Needs at least date, day would be nice too. Must be under 7mm, 5-6mm would be fantastic. Might have to go just over, see Orient pic below...
