What is the most useful complication for a watch?

Post by docrwm on Thu 29 Jul 2010, 7:32 pm

Ok, we all have 3 handers and they're great but watches for me are about complications.

So, which complication do you see as the most useful on a wristwatch and why?

Hmm, well I really don't use chronos. There's nothing in my life that I need to time! LMAO! So I'm a 3-hand watch lover. The second hand for taking pulses....that's it. The rest is just "What the hell time is it?"

Hey, our first 2 page thread!

Everyone has different likes. My own preference is well know - Chronos but I am learning to love GMTs too. That's why the 757UTC is so great for me!
