    Something more annoying than the big date window!

    Congratulations Cartier, I thought the big date window was annoying, the type that tells you that 6 comes before 7 and after 5...
    The big month window !! I know the order the months come in !

    Triple dates are useful when the hands are covering the window, but triple months... not really necessary.

    Cracking watch, all the same.

    In this case, I don't mind too much- i'd take the one on the left.

    Maybe I am lucky and dont often need to check the date in the one or two minutes it is completely covered each hour but with the month I think that if I see -ug or Ma- I am fairly confident I know what the missing letter is.

    Agreed - I hate triple dates, and a triple month is just bonkers.
