I value a date window very highly.. this has become almost a deal-breaker since the watch would be daily wear and one of the two functions I need it to perform..
Also.. with Moonwatch I feel that the price for new has jumped beyond where the watch was positioned previously.. so feels a bit like I’m arriving late and being fleeced. Then I go down the rabbit-hole of finding a birth-year model.. then I realise I’d be petrified of getting it wet.. which brings me back to
Pelagos.. waterproof.. date..
I have money for neither however so the decision is moot but I enjoy having the discussion with myself.
tl;dr If either a 1979 Moonwatch or a LHD Pelagos comes your way let me know
