Well 3 of them have open date windows which makes me nauseus: if I know today's date I can extrapolate yesterday's and tomorrow's thanks!
The cream RW is quite nice aside from that - I like the blue hands...but the white date wheels look off against the dial. And the crown is too big.
The Certina is okay but I don't like overlapping subdials...

Not a fan of that bolt on the corner of the RE sub seconds, those rings around the Certina bother me too. That Hammy is a stunner though, and the blue is a great touch.
RW Silver dial or Hamilton
Hamilton : I like the date wheel, but dislike the small dial at 6 O'Clock. Love the black font + blue and silver contrast of the hands.
RW Silver dial : Not a big fan of the day feature, Date yes, day no. Also like the blue + silver contrast (although I prefer the light blue of the Hammy, could well be the pictures that give it this effect) And I also like the subdials placements on this one.
The other 2 : Certina : A little too boring and sportier than the previous 2 stated.
Yellow RW : Way too sporty, don't like yellow.
Hamilton would get my vote, but I would love to see some wrist pics of these, they can make a huge diff.

I really like that last Raymond Weil. I think the color scheme is very versatile and looks great.
I don't like when subdials overlap, so I don't like the certina.
I don't like the screw on the seconds subdials of the RWs.
I don't like day-date.
I like that the Hamilton has the 3-6-9 layout. But I don't like the huge date cutout.
Out of all those though, I would go with the Hamilton.
Out of the 3 choices the Hamilton for sure!
I own the Hamilton and love it, but it does have a few cons.
1. The face is a brushed silver/grey and changes with the light. When the face is dark, you can see all the details perfectly. However, when the face is lighter, it is harder to tell time and see the details. (This is something you need to see in person to see what I'm talking about.)
2. I hate the factory band, it is rough and really hard to break in. This is an easy fix.
That being said, I get nothing but compliments on the watch and it goes with pretty much anything and any color you want to wear.
I also really like the Freelancer, it has a classy look.
Certina for certain!
It's the sharpest and most professional looking.
I'm content with my watch collection
