I vote hands down for the 5059 too. To me it seems the 5050 cannot decide whether it wants to present a simple dial or a complicated dial and gets hung up somewhere in between. The 5059 is a beautiful watch, solid and really not that thick sitting on my very tiny wrist. I have had no problems with it getting stuck on shirt sleeves. I had a chnace some years ago to buy a 5050 (before even the 5059 was out) and decided against it as it did not really appeal to me on my wrist even then. I think the rumors about the 5059 being discontinued are probably just that - rumors, but if true, that is really too bad as it is a great watch.
