Do you bother changing the date on your analogue watches?
I ask, because I find it a hassle to do so, as I have over 15 watches that go through a weekly wearing rotation. Which means that it takes a while for each watch to get wrist time. So when a watch that has not had wrist time for a couple of months gets to be worn, the date needs changing. This is a hassle with automatic analogue watches—even with quartz analogue ones that need the date adjusting for uneven last dates of each month.
I used to not change the dates because of this, but due to the mysterious onset of a compulsive obsessive urge in me to have a watch display the correct date, I started doing so.
Most date displays on analogue watches are so hard to see anyway due to various factors such as small date windows etc. that there really is no logical reason to want to change the date. Yet we feel the need to do so.
In this day and age, with the date displayed on phones and PCs etc. do we really need to have the correct date displayed on our watches?
Maybe the date complication on watches has outlived its historical purpose?
