 By: Subexplorer : February 26th, 2021-12:37
... you capture it perfectly in your superb shot. Both the Polaris 65 Boutique Edition and the Nautilus are breathtaking pieces. Enjoy the weekend so much! Best, Abel

I think each one can be used for all three occasions.

 
 By: Bill : February 27th, 2021-10:20
Have a great weekend.

All three awesome pieces and superb shots !.. That PP Nautilus is a special treat, Bill !.. Triple Bravo for your Threesome !

Best and HAWGE ! PS: That PAM for black tie- a bit daring but soo convincing !

A very warm welcome as a WS host Doctor -- you came up with a great theme, so I'm sure we'll see lots of terrific and stylish shots in all categories this weekend! :-)

That's the right attitude!

 
 By: MTR : February 26th, 2021-10:47
Not everything and especially not real (!!) passion can be measured in money.

Hello dear Fab! I was almost sure about your choice for the formal evening event. That´s a wonderful and unique timepiece so dear to your heart. I can well understand you won´t sell it...

Three well chosen watches dear Abel ...

 
 By: Cpt Scarlet : February 26th, 2021-09:04
I have to say that your Explorer ref 1016 from 1965 is a strong choice and looks beautiful. Best regards The Captain

A DD on a strap looks also very classy.

 
 By: COUNT DE MONET : February 26th, 2021-10:22
Good evening dear Abel. I consent: your Auquatimer is a very fitting watch for water sport activities. Like it.

Hello my dear Count! Thanks a lot for your kind comments about my choice for our weekend party with our dear friend Tony.

 
 By: Subexplorer : February 26th, 2021-12:08

 By: MTR : February 27th, 2021-04:42
And have to add: the Rolex with this bracelet looks perfect. It is certainly interesting to try a leather strap as a change and alternative. But I think you should also come back to the YG bracelet from time to time. Some things / combinations are just pe...

Good afternoon, Tony.

Congratulations on getting the Omega 1894 🥂

 
 By: Cpt Scarlet : February 26th, 2021-09:08
The perfect choice for your collection and this weekend on WristScan. The Kermit is an old favourite for me. Enjoy your weekend. Best regards The Captain

You mean :"It is sooou you!" my new Omega?

 By: Subexplorer : February 26th, 2021-12:18
... it pass the opportunity of getting one home. Agree with you about business and war! A military watch like yours looks most appropriate for the occasion. And you know how much I love Submariners. The Kermit is such a joyful variant of the classic Sub. ... 

I am glad you like all three, my friend.

 
 By: COUNT DE MONET : February 26th, 2021-12:55
If Omega should make another version of the 1894, I am also in again 😀. Whishing you also a good start into your weekend!

Great idea for a wrist scan!

 
 By: Jke67245 : February 26th, 2021-09:14
Seldom dress up in a tux these days but my choice for formal wear is my favorite Voutilainen 217QRS For every day business the one I wear the most is my 1815. For the golf course and beach the 5164A is tough to beat! ...  

Superb Voutilainen 👍

Hello dear Raymond! What a trio you have chosen for the party!! The 5196P is in my view the most beautiful of Calatravas. Such a lovely dial with those Breguet numbers.

 
 By: Subexplorer : February 26th, 2021-13:03
The Submariner the best choice for a near the sea/pool event and the Lange covers the sport-casual event to perfection. Enjoy your week end so much! Cheers! Abel

It would certainly be the Doxa for the pool... Maybe the VC 1972 for formal - although I would need to change the strap for Black Tie ⚫️⚪️ And the P15 is certainly a great piece for a casual afternoon 😊 ...  

Mine hasn’t seen much wear this year, either 😊

 
 By: KMII : February 27th, 2021-07:26
So had to rectify it 😊

Well done, dear KM !.. You chose a nicely diverse Trio.. My personal Fav is the VC1972, which would make a formidable evening wear, if strap changed..

 
 By: hs111 : February 27th, 2021-04:36
IMO, its extravagant, yet very classy !.. For sure a great black tie companion with the change to a cool black strap ! Best to you & yours, hs.

Three great choices dear KM! You can´t never go wrong with the Doxa. A great diver with a classy silver-grey dial makes for an elegant diving watch.

 
 By: Subexplorer : February 27th, 2021-06:51
Your VC is a superb choice for the formal event. I´m sure you will find the straps you like best in your awesome straps collection. The P15 is fitted with some stunning straps in the first two shots. You surely know how to enhance your watches with an spe...

An excellent theme. It speaks to my exact criteria for buying watches.

 
 By: Uncle Chico : February 27th, 2021-00:51
For black tie only a black strap and black dial will do. Rolex Cellini. For business, a Breguet. And the only watch I would trust near water, a Seiko diver. ...  

Many thanks. I blame you for the Breguet! ;-)))

Agree with you that we need to keep cautious and have discipline to cope with pandemic. I wish the arrival of vaccine with allow with the pass of some months to return little by little to the normal life we knew. Thank you for your greetings and good wish... 

I’ll join in (it’s a great theme)

Formal Wear: I’d admit breaking the rules by wearing a sports watch but according to Audemars Piguet: in order to break the rules, one must master them. Of course, I’d wear patent leather shoes, a cummerband, and a black tux. This piece will hide under th...

Gotta blame the Italians

 
 By: Cookies : February 27th, 2021-05:35
They bring in so much passion into their suits, it is almost horological. I gotta get a Panerai soon. Thanks Doc Tony and it was a great theme that stimulates the mind to imagine and think.

Yes I admire them

My classmates are jealous I got the coolest GP as my mentor. He is Italian origin and drives around in a supercar. Somehow he could pull it off without the community saying he is arrogant, instead he is a role-model. You should see how the nurses greet hi... 

There’s something special

 
 By: Cookies : February 28th, 2021-05:04
About the way he does it. A boyish charm and a recognition to all he meets, which is not a simple Hello but a look in the eye. Yes I will observe more and let you know how he pulls it off. It is hard. Much like many girls wear all these luxury goods but p... 

Interesting description. I feel this is a gift he was born with...

Hello Cookies! Three great choices to enjoy the party organized by our dear friend Tony. I share with you the feeling that sometimes rules are to be broken...

... I specially think about wearing a sporty watch when I view a film of James Bond and see him wearing his Submariner or Omega SM with a tuxedo and nobody can deny how cool he looks. Of course I´m far from the looks or coolness of all actors playing Bond...

I think JB has entered my subconscious, and influenced me to think this way. Funny thing happened a few days ago. I was sitting in car (or car-rocket) of my mentor-doctor and I asked him what the best stethoscope is. After he replied, we realized the radi... 

Agree with you dear Cookies. our subconcious influences our actions. Interesting you bring JB as it has been some kind of obsession to me along so many decades of following him through...

... films and books. Also interesting what you tell about the chat around stethoscopes. Most probably the radio talking had an influence on that too. Pierce Brosnan made a very nice Bond. Not very satisfied with Dalton though, but that is a very personal ... 

Dear Tony...splendid choices and great style...

Other than small biz meetings/meals, seems like any kind of formal/black tie event will be some time away. My choices are: Breguet Tradition for formal occasions Freak for the weekend catchup with friends over a couple of beers And the Doxa for a hike alo...  

Sure thing...🍻

Hello dear friend S F!! Your La Tradition reminds me of how much I need one of these wonderful timepieces in my collection. I really love this watch.

 
 By: Subexplorer : February 27th, 2021-07:17
The Doxa is a great choice for any informal event specially if around pool, beach or sea. And the Freak a good conversation starter in a gathering of friends and an enjoyable and awesome presence on the wrist always. Enjoy the party and weekend so much my... 

Thks dear Abel..

A La Tradition is sure a nice addition to your expansive collection 😁. Have a great Sunday my friend!

The Freak is a topic-starter

 
 By: Cookies : February 27th, 2021-08:30
Esp in bars where lots of chicks hang around. You could tell them it costs $800 and they’d likely believe it. Nice Freak there. Rather uncommon to see nowadays. The Freak X is on my mind sometimes but I hadn’t the chance to view it at any ADs here yet. ... 

Lol.....the bars would need a rain check for now😂

 
 By: S F : February 27th, 2021-19:57
Hope you get a chance to drop by the AD soon. Cheers!

Amazing and special trio . Love them

I gasped when you wrote swimming and saw the Patek.

Thank you, love KV’s work!

It was difficult to narrow down, but here’s my three:

Grand Seiko for the formal event. CB for during the day business casual. Oris Diver’s 65 for pool or ocean swimming. It has performed those tasks flawlessly many times. ...  

My suggestions

Thank you

Wow which UN model is that

 
 By: Cookies : February 28th, 2021-06:05
It is different from the other UN divers. I would like to read about it and hunt for it.

I would take the 995 for the casual afternoon: I would take the 372 for the pool/beach portion of the event (clearly I completely missed the point of warmer weather on this one ) And of course I would take the up/down for the black tie evening Thanks for ...  

Ok Tony and everyone, sorry for the delay but I have been traveling this weekend and have not been home. It was a bit tough to break it down into 3 watches so I decided to break it down further by groupings...

Firstly, I would like to say that I have not worn a suit nor tux for over a year and probably less than 5 times in the past 5 years so my selection and point of view could be a bit skewed 😜😉 So off the top of my head I would go with these 6 groupings of 3...  

Always something interesting in Paris Tony 😁😜. Sadly, everyone was busy so I took a short tour by myself...

Picked up a few bespoke straps from ABP (my favorite leather atelier) and one in particular for my new Breguet which I think looks uber cool. It is a similar hide to the one I have on my JLC Duometre Chronograph but with more white tones due to the specia...

 By: aperna : February 28th, 2021-08:33

Thanks my friend. Happy with the results and not a bad turn around time, around 11 days from start to finish. Currently, it only has 1 hole punched as it was tailor made to my measurements. So once the leather relaxes and stretches a bit...

 
 By: holdemchamp1225 : February 28th, 2021-08:43
I will add 2 more holes to have a summer and winter fitting 😉. You really need to visit their atelier next time you are in Paris. They really do amazing work and the amount of options to choose from is mind-boggling 😉😁. If you do make it over, let me know...
