On the dial, the trapezoidal markers are white, lume-filled, and surrounded in blue, while at 12, three, six, and nine, the markers are square-shaped. Each of the markers are concave towards the center which provides some really interesting geometric detail to an otherwise straightforward aspect of the watch. The date complication – often a point of contention – works nicely here. The surface area of the date window appears to take up effectively the same space as any one of the numerals. In doing so, the overall layout maintains symmetry and consistency. Would it have been cool for the numbers on the date wheel to have been red, or even in a roulette-style layout? Sure, but as it stands, I still think the white on white works well.
