    What is it called when you have the day of the week at 12

    What is the style called when you have the day of the week fully spelled out at the 12 position? For example, the Rolex Day-Date.

    To my knowledge, this is usually referred to as a Day-Date complication. Tourneau seems to agree with me.

    I'm not aware of any recognised term. Maybe full day & date will get you the best search results.

    SKX day is abbreviated, not spelled out

    ... a Rolex Presidential.

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

    You think I'm condescending...?? Do you even know what that means... ??

    Yes, but what nomenclature would you use to distinguish between these types of complications. They both are Day-Date, but this doesn't communicate the specifics of what you are talking about.

    Why do you think it's a different complication?
