Thank you so much dear Captain!!

 
 By: Subexplorer : October 11th, 2021-18:09
I’m deeply in love with it and so happy I finally could get it!!
Cheers! Abel

Thank you very much for selecting my photo for entry. I am honored.

Big Congratulations to David! What a shot , what a watch, what a dial!

So many wrist shot candidates this time around . . .

 
 By: Dr No : October 10th, 2021-23:02
. . . that I'll have to categorize them.

In the aesthetic consideration category we have Doug's Zenith EP . . .




. . . (of which I'm an admirer - it's one of the most appealing recent EPs in memory),  Chronometer's wicked black Tudor . . .




. . . Watchonthewrist's Habring . . .




. . . Abel's Pepsi, foreground and back . . . 




. . . K's Ming and Seiko submissions . . .






. . . and Im6's UJ.




Then, there were the submissions that hewed to Captain's theme.  Fred's Wyler . . .




. . . alongside his better half and four cups of coffee - how better to spend Saturday morning? 

Next there's aWtchslvr's glinting Grand Seiko in the foreground with a panoramic view of a northern Spanish beach . . .




. . . in the background.  Where could one spend a more relaxing weekend?

Ajas' OP with a Carlsberg matching the strap . . .




. . . both in terms of color and placement - straight lines could be drawn from the strap to the glass without deviation.  I'd like to credit him with intentionally crafting the image so the lines would coincide. 

(And let's face it - there's nothing more relaxing than a cold beer on a weekend!)

You've gotta admire guys like Im6 . . .




. . . and David . . .




. . . who can relax while wearing watches some of us would think twice about breathing on, much less wearing.  More power to 'em!

But this week, in addition to the usual artistic masterpieces and thematic entries, there were two intriguingly quirky submissions.  Quan's Tudor . . .





. . . posed to reflect his t-shirt and mj23's mystery watch . . .




. . . were both inexplicably compelling.  Third to Quan, second to mj23, and first to Cookies . . .




. . . for crafting an image that practically screams "Weekend!"

Excellent timepieces and marvelous shots! Congrats to all winners!

Lovely collection of timepieces this week smile

Abducted by aliens million apologies results

 
 By: Jurry : October 11th, 2021-17:12

My dear friends,

First of all let me apologize for being the worst judge in the world by missing the deadline by 24 hours. Hopefully you will forgive me but I was abducted by aliens (no the joke question if I have been probed has been asked already) and in outer space I had no internet connection.

More seriously: we suffered a family emergency which now has thankfully been cleared but what made me miss the judge deadline. Sorry for that.

Despite being late I plowed there all these great entries and studied the comments per entry as well.

I knew divers where popular but not that popular. Therefore I have selected Vallura as the second runner up for entering 3 different divers (and at least 2 of them not the usual suspects) and with 3 different m,aerials for strap/bracelet. Very nice.

Runner up is NT931 for posting that beautiful Kurono. A watch I have actually never seen with my own eyes only thru pictures. That was also another reason for selecting this entry as runner up because it shows the global reach of our community.

In first place, those of you who know me a bit might guess already) is Terbaboom. I mean come on, entering not 1 but 2 of my all time favorite brands VC and Blancpain scores points. Of all entries I belief that Blancpain is absolutely number 1 for this week.

Once again apologies for the delay. Cant change it but it is what it is.









Like you Jurry, BP is a favorite of mine. His BP FF looks incredible, like a sleek spaceship floating in space! Nicely captured.

thanks, Douglas! for the kind words

Thank you for your verdict Jurry …

 
 By: Cpt Scarlet : October 11th, 2021-19:32
and congratulations to NT931 and our winner of Best Static Shot, Terbaboom.

Once again apologies captain
