At the same height it does tend to blend in.
I'd suggest either making the date all numeric and bigger or move the P and W above the percentages.
I tried making some watches look like text written in sand/snow and it's hard -- without premium fonts.
Maybe change the date to a different font or three lines of text stacked on each other.
IE: (line 1) Day of Week
(line 2) Month
(line 3) Day
