TR Paradive Date vs No Date

Hi readers, I have been lucky to be able to buy the Paradive from TR - what do people think? Date vs No date??
I like functionality of date but the non-date version looks better.
Keen to hear others thoughts.

As many of you know, I consider a Date window to be the SINGLE ultimate way to ruin an otherwise beautiful dive watch dial face - PERIOD! First off, as a diver, I can't remember a SINGLE incident when I needed to know the date while I was 110' feet down. I have a simple "trick" that I've used since I was a teenager to remember the date. Every morning when I wake up I say out loud: "Today is (fill in the M-S day, month, and date)..." Saying it out loud allows you to THINK it, then SAY it, and then HEAR it, the result being FAR better than a Date window which you absent mindedly glance at ~152 times/day and then summarily FORGET. Try it - you'll like it!

Great idea, but you aren’t almost 79 years old!! I rely on the date function many times a day. I agree 100% aesthetically the date window is obtrusive. Probably the least obtrusive is the date @ 4-5, date wheel the same color as the dial and thin white numbers. Not perfect, but it doesn’t jump out at you like a [email protected]

I don't care if you're 179 years old - try my method and see if it doesn't work for you; I'll bet you a cookie it does!
