The SD4K went out today, passing it onto a friend. This arrived only moments ago... I love it.

This would be my first choice it I am in the market for one, fits your criteria. Daily wear would be no problem.

There is also the SS version with the light grey meteorite dial, also regular and enamel dial I think, but the darker meteorite dial and the contrast with the RG is why sells me on the RG version. You can get these preowned usually in mint condition for around $10k USD if I recall correctly, which is really not that bad considering what you're getting.

The Skydweller in SS would also be a great choice, although no day display, the 2nd timezone more than makes up for it. Blue dial on brown leather is the combo I'd go with. I initially hated the design but it's growing on me, but I don't think I could choose it over that beautiful JLC or a simple DJ.
That's not an annual calendar, but a full calendar. An annual calendar will automatically adjust for months that have 30 or 31 days, and the only month you have to manually set the date would be Feb. A full calendar will have the date, day, month, and moon phase, but will have to be adjusted for every month that does not have 31 days.

Not saying it's a bad choice in a watch, as I used to own the Master Moon many years ago, but if you are really looking for an annual calendar, this isn't the watch for you.

Can anyone recommend a place where I can get a watch winder? I'm looking for three or four watches unit, decent quality and less then $200.

I use the boxy winder for my watches. I have them winding Seiko, Omega and Rolex just fine. They have different programs so it should cover almost all watches. They are also quiet.

You're right Al, somehow I always thought it had a annual calendar built in....

Anything cheaper? Less then $50 per single watch.

Dude this is cheap, especially with the features I mentioned. Trust me.

Wolf is highly regarded as a 'cheap' winder and a single winder with these features are around $300-400.

Why do you need winders?

I have two single wolfs I don’t use, 2 triple orbita’s Also I’m their box. I just hand wind them when I switch them up now.

Btw the wolf’s are almost whisper quiet.
