I have found that some people just like to hear themselves typing.

Don't be effing around... get the Patek and be done!!
You think I'm condescending...?? Do you even know what that means... ??

I have about a dozen watches and none has a date function. They are easy to set and as a bonus look better without that hole cut into the dial.
Always power mine down and then reset the time and date when I fire them back up.

I have watch winders so I don’t have to worry about this. Here comes the debate about destroying my watches by having them run.

I use a lunar calendar. I only have to drink goats blood about twice a month. Those are the only two days that are important.
I will not set the date on a watch.
I've owned a few watches with no quickset date. I just sold a Nomos Metro Gangreserve that was handwind + date, but no quickset. It was easy enough to do the vintage date set method - rotate to midnight when the date switched, then back to 9pm, then back to midnight for another switch, and repeat, to set the date.
Of course. It's no fun to have an incorrect date.
I mean, most of my watches don't have a date, but when I do wear one that does, yes, I make it correct. Why wouldn't I?

How did it get so late so soon?
1. Pull crown to time setting, move hands to 6 o'clock.
2. Push crown to date setting, and quickset to one day before the current date.
3. Pull crown to time setting when second hand reaches 12 o'clock, advance time past midnight to current date, and set time.
As you might imagine, this is quite a bit more time consuming that simply hacking the second hand and setting the time. Which is why I much prefer no date watches, both for the convenient, and the dial symmetry.

I feel compelled to adjust the date. Which is why I’ve recently decided that watches lacking a date window are more desirable :)
