WristScan for December 7 is now open: 'Mystery GTG watch'.

 By: zabreg1 Mr White : December 6th, 2018-09:09
The theme this week is supposed to make you think and make the hardest choice for us: Pick just ONE watch!!! Here is my choice, based on pure emotion and personal meaning, as it was my wedding watch: I look forward to see your choices and reasons. HAGWE, ...  

Whatyagonnado :)

 By: Ares501 - Mr Green : December 6th, 2018-09:14
Don't look at me like that ...  

i am so surprised [nt]

 By: Baron - Mr Red : December 6th, 2018-09:19

Shocked :) [nt]

 By: Ares501 - Mr Green : December 6th, 2018-09:25

if we had never met and i walked into a GTG and saw you with that.....

 By: Baron - Mr Red : December 6th, 2018-09:30
.....and we started a discussion..... and it went along to "why did you buy that"...... and then you said..."Have you watched The Sopranos yet?" .....yep...i can see that GTG

Yes I can.... absolutely

It's a given.

Agreed [nt]

 By: Ares501 - Mr Green : December 7th, 2018-06:54

My choice.....

 By: Baron - Mr Red : December 6th, 2018-09:31
I would also go with one with a personal meaning. My dad's watch. Bought in the 1960s Interesting enough horologically to discuss but not something that would shout. ...  

A perfect answer.

 By: zabreg1 Mr White : December 6th, 2018-10:13

 By: Baron - Mr Red : December 11th, 2018-10:58
Yes, he was a man with great taste. The watch reminds me of him a lot. Regrettably I only have that single photograph. I should do some more.

Please, do and share

Definitely a great conversation piece

Beautiful piece, Bill.

Have a great weekend, Watchonthewrist!

It was unforgettable my friend .

 By: Watchonthewrist : December 8th, 2018-08:47

What a stunning marvel !

 By: hs111 : December 8th, 2018-11:38

Great theme! For this 'mystery GTG' I decided I'll try to match the location to my Patek... Let's see what we have:

 By: FabR : December 6th, 2018-12:19
This 5089G if it's in Geneva... This 5131P if the GTG is at the North Pole... Finally, this 5177G if it's in my hometown of Genova... And now I ran out of Pateks with geographic dials... So if the GTG is somewhere else, let me know and I've found a great ...  

Uhhh....I count about...

And a great one at that. [nt]

It makes sense ;) [nt]

Cruising in with a '73 Pontiac

My vintage Super Compressor with Blue-Green dial is so far out of left field I think it could make for a good conversation ...  

Definitelly conversations starter!

 By: Ares501 - Mr Green : December 6th, 2018-13:36
So cool

Wow, cool! [nt]

 By: amanico : December 6th, 2018-13:51

And a great conversation starter it surely must be.

 By: zabreg1 Mr White : December 7th, 2018-01:06
The color of that dial is really cool. The case, the lugs, the hands, everything here is interesting.

Very nice! What size? [nt]

 By: blomman Mr Blue : December 7th, 2018-02:30

Thank you, its 42mm [nt]

Didn't have any actual association with the car manufacture AFAIK

Great patina 👍 [nt]

Would definitely like to see that one Great choice!

I've long felt the Flightmaster is the ultimate realization . . .

. . . of pilot design. Kinda like the 427 Shelby AC Cobra being the ultimate realization of sports car design . . . yes, there are others arguably 'better' in one way or another. The 910 got the essentials nailed, with gusto. Art

Eloquently put, Art. [nt]

Perfect. It looks very comfortable. [nt]

Thank you, it is very comfortable indeed.

One of the reasons why I gravitate towards many of the integrated bracelet models... Omega Constellation '95 and GP Laureato 8010 for example... Unfortunately, GP's been sold... stupid, stupid, stupid. Wish to acquire in future, GP again if I can find it ...  

VC especially a great watch.

Fantastic case!

Thanks for the gorgeous photos, my dear Abel.

Grand Seiko Special 6156. A number of you have seen this watch in the metal, as I have brought it to Purist GTGs and also it’s often my Redbar choice. Why? First: Well, it’s not something people see everyday (the “Special” had a shortish run, and even mor...  

Great choice and excellent reasons.
