    What's your easiest and hardest to read watch?

    I didn't see a post like this, apologies if I missed it.

    What watch is your easiest and hardest to read?

    Easiest for me: Boschett Cave Dweller




    or Citizen 4x4 Limited:


    They both have excellent legibility. At a quick glance there's no mistaking the time. Dark background and highly visible hands.


    Now my hardest to read at a glance. Armitron skeleton. I like the watch, but darn if I don't have to study the thing to see what time it is.





    Let's see yours!

    Easiest to read? That's going to be difficult to say as almost all of my watches are easy to read.

    Precista PRS-20 LE is probably the easiest, but the Kobold LSD, Glycine Incursore Sapphire w/cream dial are also really easy to read at a glance.

    About the only one that causes me a bit of trouble is the Glycine Half Hunter. The hour hand should have been just a bit shorter. At time's it's difficult to tell the hands apart when looking through the front cover.

    Easiest to read for me would be a toss up between my Archimede Pilot, Orange Monster and my 2254. The Seiko Samurai is a close 4th. Hardest to read is my Superocean steelfish. The combination of a glossy dial and hands that a mostly shiny (much less lume area than the 2254) means that in bright lighting the reflctions can be overwhelming and then in some lighting at odd angles the hands almost dissapear. In future I'll stick to matte dials I think.

    All of my pilot watches are easy to read. The hardest for some people would be my Movado Luno.

    Easiest to read the time:



    Fliegers were made to be easy to tell the time at a glance.


    Most difficult to read the time:



    It all blends together.
    (but who cares? this watch is my favorite vintage Omega!)


    Most fun to read the time:



    ...because I still am in lust with it - and actually sometimes I don't know what time it is even after staring at it for a few minutes.

    Easiest to read: Black Seamaster Professional...


    Hardest to read: Probably my Citizen Calibre 8700 (not terribly difficult but certainly a "busy" dial)

    Easiest to read is the one I'm wearing, hardest are the ones I'm not
