    Yes, I change it to the correct date and enjoy doing so.

    If this seems like a chore I would suggest an Apple Watch or similar.

    Re: Do you bother changing the date on your analogue watches?

    One of the reasons I value a watch is because it gives me the date. I have only watches that have dates on them and multiple times a day I utilize the date. On the few occasions where I think it's the right date or I set it to the incorrect date, I inevitably write down the wrong date at some point that day.

    I don't but I know most others do. I work on a computer most of the day so I constantly am seeing the date in the corner.

    [QUOTE=Houston Grey;49120061]Yes. Prefer looking at my watch for day/date than my phone.

    +1. Me too. I don't have as many automatics as you do but the ones in my rotation are always up to date.

    Re: Do you bother changing the date on your analogue watches?

    Yes I always set it.

    I always set the date on any watch I am wearing.

    I find the date complication one of the most useful things about wearing a watch.

    When there are less than 31 days in the month I change all the mechanical ones that are running and the quartz.

    Re: Do you bother changing the date on your analogue watches?

    I never set the dates for a couple of reasons....

    I can't see most of them as I need reader glasses for close up sight.

    I always know the date as my day job puts it in my face often.

    Date complications have not dissuaded me from purchasing any watch though, and most of what I have has one.

    What you really need is a pair of progressive lenses, even if a distance correction is not needed.

    The truth is that if you can't see the date on your watch without glasses, you are also missing out on a lot of detail in other instances.

    Why fumble with readers when you can just wear progressives all the time?

    They do take some getting used to and they are relatively expensive, but in my view, they are well worth the hassle and the expense.

    The world looks a lot better in HD.

    I do have progressives, however, I'm one of the few that have perfect vision other than up close, so it's a waste to wear them all the time.

    I can see the details of a watch just fine, but some of the dates are so small, even with perfect vision, they are difficult to read.

    I always know the date, and it's been a thing for me well before my close up vision started to fail. I guess that's what happens when you have over 150 watches and swap them all the time....which is not the case now, so I guess I don't have an excuse any more.
