    An unusual complication... a working 'sunphase' indicator...

    Maybe I'm naive but this is, for my part, a very unusual complication, if made somewhat redundant each time the sun rises in the east but there you go..
    someone had to do it...

    I think this complication can be very useful if you live above the Pole Circle. Winter time it can be very difficult to know if it is 7 in the morning or evening.... I belonged to a military unit in Swedish Arctic many years ago, and we had a problem with that. A couple of training missions failed because we were 12 hours off. But apart from that-? Ornamental!
    Btw, nice watch!

    Wouldn't 24-hour time prevent that?

    Yes, but we did not have 24 hour watches. If you mean " demolish the bridge at 16.00", we confused 16.00 with 04.00.

    Carribean wins! We have only been here 1 year, but would have moved far earlier if we knew how nice life is here.
    We lived in UK for 10 years first. A nice place to live, but this is better.
