Watches & Pencils #15 - Date WindowsBeing fascinated with the perpetual discussion about date windows I decided to dedicate a chapter of Watches & Pencils into it. Relating to the lines I am going to participate to the present giving our opinion, but let's mainly target a tour around some remarkable 'windows':Within this episode we'll only concentrate on date windows, so do not expect date indicators with subdials, pointer date-indicators, etcetera.General introduction: variations and propertiesBefore we start our trip and consider some fresh Baselworld 2016 windows I would like to introduce a couple of categories and quickly summarize a few bits about date windows.Date windows and variationsRoughly, because there are much variations and possibilities that it's almost impossible to pay for all:Grande Date or Big Date: two big windows from the base because of this impressive window. Underneath houses a nifty technique formed by two, sometimes overlapping, separate discs. Together they constitute the date. The most famous ones is probably the Lange & Sohne big date.Day-Date: on this variation the date comes with your day of every week. Often two windows alongside each other (DAY - NR).Panorama date windows: An enormous stretched (curved) window providing the viewer more visibility about the date disc. Thus, it exposes a day range at the date. The specific date can often be indicated by a caret at the window.A-symmetrical date windows: date windows with increased dynamic shapes. A trapezium shaped date window for instance.Round date window. Self-explanatory.Illustration showing a 'Big Date' on the Lange & Sohne 1Character: chameleon or spotlight?Some date windows match like chameleons while others prefer to let every dial-viewer be aware that they are there. What exactly is your cup of tea? For me this will depend about the kind of watch/category and the way the contrast or blending is executed. One of the most heard irritations I hear is wrong color combinations and contrast. One example is: a creme colored dial having a virgin white-colored date window ? Some of the cause are economic arguments and out-house movements.Sinn U212 EZM 16 date window: minimalistic but legible.Position of date windowsBesides color in addition there are more methods of the watch brand to select from. If they have a choice ?Huh? Unfortunately, many of the low and mid-segment watch brands are restricted to third party movements from ETA or Soprod for example. This really is putting quite a restriction/challenge for the form of the dial, since date disc position is static and linked to the movement. Often brands must 'work around' the date window, causing oddly placed date windows and cluttered dial designs with mismatching colors and typefaces. But, a work-around is usually better then forgetting this element and create the infamous 'afterthought' looking date window. Ok, let's admit, cheap replica watches with outsourced movements it may be quite a challenge. But, you'll find often options left. The career as an example. As opposed to very well liked 3 o'clock position, 4 o'clock can on occasion develop a more balanced and viable option. More unorthodox positions like 11 o'clock can be quite original, but aren't that practical and accepted on the whole.Position with the window at 6: design choice or restriction? (new Longines Heritage 1918)SizeBy choosing an ideal contrast it is possible to trigger attention, there is however another parameter allowing the same effect: size. We've already discussed the large date. The "natural" way. Besides this watch brands may also increase the size with the magnifying aftereffect of a cyclops around the glass. You hate them or love them, yet it is methods to increase exposure and legibility from the date window.Magnifying cyclops around the new Rolex Yacht-master 40 in Everose goldReviewing date windowsThere's no comprising taste, but this foundation and much of our opinion/preferences we can easily review and analyse and review date replica rolex windows over a more solid and detailed way. Let's sum up and consider some Baselworld novelties from this past year:Variation and general dedication to the idea of the watchColorPositionSize(Numeral) typefaceSpecial additions (e. replicas omega watches g. cyclops)Baselworld 2016 reviewsAlpina Seastrong DiverThis date window fits the watch for me. Alpina did decide upon for the most frequent 3 o'clock position in the 'chameleon' setup. Since there aren't many numerals around on this dial it fit's other typographic elements and it also nicely extends the rounded hour indicator. It is a dive watch and once not diving this watch lets you know the date on the subtle way.Clerc Hydroscaph H1 ChronometerA panorama setup having a blue matching caret indicating the actual date. You will find something special about this example. In most on the instances when discussing white colored dials, brands go for a (matching) light date disc. In cases like this Clerc implemented the purest contrast / uncommon setup: a black disc with white numerals over a white dial. But could it be, together with the panorama setup, by far the most legible and fitted option? If there are options through the design process: is three o'clock the very best position because the characteristic numeral '3' needs to be stop a great deal? I think everything is bold about this watch, except for the date berhard ContografA slightly a-symmetrical date window. A few things i love about it window is the fact that Eberhard developed a eating habits study elements by giving it the same deep red color. The date window included. At 6 o'clock it complements the appearance of the dial and balance in the dial. Every element gets enough space. Also, the date window is nicely aligned an internet to create an imaginary line between your 5 and 7 o'clock indicators. The metal frame throughout the window fits ideal and offers your window an even more lavish and refined look.Glash tte Original Quintessenz SenatorGlash tte only produces and uses in-house movements. Designers get every one of the room and space to produce the most ideal dial and matching date windows. Have a look at visit a beautiful example of an enormous date. Although it is a big date it lets elements speak and blends in. Its numeral Roman typeface matches the opposite numerals (e.g. the numerals within the small seconds track) each number is perfectly aligned in the window replica second hand rolex datejust watches . The rounded recessed extra level round the date creates a border with a depth relation to a subtle and well-thought way. The date is made by to discs next to each other as opposed to overlapping setup where I spoke about previously. It exposes the technique leaving over 'separator frame' like Lange & Sohne does.Open (or closed) endLast 1st of April there have been jokes about date window masks inside watch scene. Although I don't like the thought being your own personal chef adjust "carefully" crafted designs by an added ingredient (date window mask in this case) My business is very interested in the long term. Will to start dating ? window turn into a more offered option amongst watch brands or should we need to accept choices produced by brands we love to? Do you pay a tad bit more for the watch with two dials: one with the other without date window? If we try and build a bridge with "smart" replica watches it is not unthinkable. These replica watches come with a ton of dials out of the box ?Taste can transform over time and achieving options is great. Or otherwise not?I really hope you've enjoyed reading this episode. Please told me what you believe about date windows. Have you been the one that loves stealthy 'chameleon' windows or will you prefer luxury 'spotlights' with white gold or platinum borders with an onyx black dial?
