Why I don't like watches with pointer date indication

I very much prefer a date window to a date hand on a watch.
The reason is simple and has to do with logic. All other regular hands on a watch will point to every point: After 11 comes 12, after Thursday comes Friday and so on, so the hands' progression can be used to see what day of week it will be in three days time or how many hours it is until 12 o'clock.

This breaks down with pointer date, as just because it's the 30:th
today doesn't mean there will be a 31:st tomorrow.
Thus a date window is more logical.
