Ditto.

Probably several watch pet peeves but my main one would be my reach exceeds my grasp as far as desired watches. An enjoyable forum and fun to read about others' pet peeves.

I have to agree with Henry. I hate date displays that show more than one date.

Oh yes, and exhibition case backs on quartz watches. I mean, who wants to see a battery and a piece of plastic. C'mon, stamp a quality solid case back for it...

As for myself, the lack of drilled lugs is a big factor in whether I would consider buying a watch. Does anyone want to risk scratching the lugs when changing straps? I don't think so. And drilled lugs minimize the risk of that happening.

It is a bit of an art I pride myself in. But you're right, drilled lugs makes it SO much easier. As do those quick release pin straps and bracelets. Not a deal breaker for me as far as buying though.
