If the "unique" interpretation of the big date complication doesn't excite you - don't worry. A Favre & Fils has a 10.2 version of the Phoenix watch sans any date at all. The date is comprised of two large discs, and reading the date involves looking at the line that has two figures in it. In the above example the date is the 17th. If the date was the 7th, then there would be a small red arrow next to the 7.
The simple case is attractive, 41mm wide in size, and available in 18k red or white gold. The movement has a lot of decorative effort put into it. It is manually wound with 84 hours of power reserve (looks to be via two barrels), and is visible through the watch case back. A. Favre & fils calls it their Calibre DB 1334/1 Henry. According the A. Favre & fils, the design of the movement was done to enhance reliability through the use of the least possible moving parts. Sounds good to me.
