Remembering the date vs day

I don't know if this is common or not, but I often can't remember the date of the month, which is why all of my watches have a date function. It's common for me to glance down at my watch several times a day to get the date for whatever paperwork or online form I'm filling out that requires a date to be filled in.

I'll glance down at my watch, get the date and my mind temporarily holds the date for that brief moment it's needed, gets zapped from my memory until it's needed again later in the day. Then, I inevitably have to glance down at my watch again.

The weird thing is that it's less of a problem for me to remember the day of the week. However, this does happen too on some rare occasions.

This is why my date watches like my Seiko SRPE here on a cheapie leather strap are so clutch.

Anyway, I'm curious to know if anybody else out there has this same little mental struggle.

I’ll be the voice of dissent as I’ve stopped setting the dates on my watches that have them. My old mans quartz Seiko is always a couple days off since I rarely wear it.

I know it only take a little longer to set the date after winding them up, but it’s not a feature I personally use. That being said, I love the day/dates even if I don’t use them. I have fond memories of an an old Fortis that had the days in German.
