    What Complications would you like/need to have?

    I don't know if this has ever been discussed, so i'll give it a shot. Please list 3 sets of complications that you would find as;
    1. Necessity
    2. Would like to have
    3. Perfect watch for you.

    For me its the following.
    1. Date.
    2. Date + Power Reserve
    3. Date, Power Reserve, Bi-retrograde Day - Date

    Re: What Complications would you like/need to have?

    The minimum feature that I'd probably need on all of my watches is an hour hand, although I'll admit that currently all of my watches also have the minute hand as well

    Beyond that, nothing else is an absolute requirement. More than likely, too many complications cluttering the dial would make me less interested in the watch. I only have one chronograph (no running seconds) and two watches with dates. Everything else is time only.

    3. Power Reserve.

    All I want is a Chronograph/GMT/Power Reserve/Moonphase. Oh and "diver" rated at 300m. I could then own one watch. What SEEMS to be the hold up?

    1) Date
    2) Power Reserve
    3) Small Date Window, GMT, Power Reserve
    Better to regret something you have done, than something you haven't done...

    Re: What Complications would you like/need to have?

    1) Date (though I usually try for Day/Date, this is the absolute minimum for complications)
    2) Chrono
    3) 24hr watch (preferably with the 24 at the bottom of the dial, not the top), chrono. At least that's what I'm dreaming of right now...

    1. None, I have several that just tell time.
    2. Day/Date/Power reserve
    3. My Citizen Cal 9000, has alarms, pointer date, minute repeater, perp cal., dual time, Eco-Drive, Low Charge Ind., AM/PM ind., if this watch had a decent water rating (only 30 Meter) it would be perfect.
