A date complication is when the date is displayed on the watch, and it is the simplest complication that exists on a watch. Day-Date complications show the day of the week in addition to the date. The date function must be manually adjusted at the end of 30-day months as well as at the end of February to ensure the proper date is displayed.
Digital date shows the date displayed numerically through a window (also known as an aperture) on the dial. Typically the date display is located at the three o’clock position, but this isn’t always the case.
Analog date uses a center hand, with an arrow or a crescent, that points to the date on the outside of the dial. Looking for something unique? This style of date function is a great twist on the standard digital date display.
Day-Date complications show the day of the week displayed on the dial in addition to the standard date display. The most common form of a Day Date display houses the date aperture in the noon position and the date at three o’clock.
