Absolutely agree the date function disrupts the aesthetics, but I haven't bought the Pitzmann II because it's a no date, still deciding.
I usually know what time it is, as there are clocks everywhere, walls, fridges, my stove, TV, computer, car. Thing I look for on my watch more than anything is the date. Cause it's the one thing I don't have to do anything extra but look and clearly see the date. Phone I have take out of pocket, and unlock for example.
Anyway, love the looks of these no dates
