WristScan December 28 Starts Now - Theme: "The Best of 2018"!

 By: blomman Mr Blue : December 27th, 2018-06:55
Let's start our last WristScan of this year! Please come and share your "The Best of 2018"! "The Best" is of course open for interpretation, as long as it's watch related. I will start with my "best catch of 2018" - Rolex 14060M LGF! A great modern beater...  

Very cool shot, Blomman!

 By: KMII : December 27th, 2018-07:02
Now let’s see what to contribute... Decided on the P15. While not a new addition, it’s gotten a good share of wrist time, it’s versatile, a community watch and boasts a historically significant, fast beat movement. 😊 ...  

Great reasoning and watch, KM! :) [nt]

 By: blomman Mr Blue : December 27th, 2018-07:32

The P15. Been a while. [nt]

 By: zabreg1 Mr White : December 28th, 2018-07:22

Still like it a lot 😊

 By: KMII : December 28th, 2018-07:24
Even if it’s far from the newest or latest 👍🏻

Hear hear. [nt]

 By: zabreg1 Mr White : December 28th, 2018-07:44

Thanks a lot for the kind words, Abel!

 By: KMII : December 27th, 2018-10:53
A great 2019 to you, too 👍🏻

Thanks, CC! [nt]

 By: KMII : December 27th, 2018-10:54

Good choice, K. [nt]

 By: amanico : December 27th, 2018-12:38

I know you like this one, Nico 😊

 By: KMII : December 27th, 2018-13:03

A lot! [nt]

The LGF and the Tony! Best Blomman

He should! ;) [nt]

 By: blomman Mr Blue : December 27th, 2018-10:20

Wonderful shots dear D! The YG DD ... I was expecting to view that! It has good reasons to stand among The Best of 2018!!

 By: Subexplorer : December 27th, 2018-08:26
I wish you and your beloved ones a wonderful New Year 2019 with much Peace and tons of Good Health! Cheers! Abel

Well it's good to be a king

I've been corrupted :)) [nt]

 By: Ares501 - Mr Green : December 28th, 2018-05:44

Superbly said and exactly what I was thinking other day...

 By: Ares501 - Mr Green : December 28th, 2018-06:09
no matter how much you look at it you can never get tired of it! Cheers D

You're insufferable.

 By: zabreg1 Mr White : December 28th, 2018-07:22
I predict Tony only, pinky ring and velour tracksuit.

You have surveillance cameras at my house!!??

 By: Ares501 - Mr Green : December 30th, 2018-15:26

Absolutely. [nt]

 By: zabreg1 Mr White : December 31st, 2018-03:46
Keep your friends close, your enemies...

Not your wrist movements? 😉

 By: KMII : December 28th, 2018-10:27
First Rolex Solar 😂 Joking aside it fits you and is certainly a great piece 👍🏻

Catches of 2018.....

 By: Baron - Mr Red : December 27th, 2018-07:16
I see three to mention, but two of them are for family rather than personal........which leaves me with the ONE. No....not the 5650G as that camein 2017. The LGF is my winner for 2018 ...  

Damn it, you have great taste. [nt]

 By: zabreg1 Mr White : December 27th, 2018-07:22

My wife tells me that too. [nt]

 By: Baron - Mr Red : December 27th, 2018-07:44

LOL!! [nt]

 By: Ares501 - Mr Green : December 28th, 2018-05:46

Should we talk about her taste, then? [nt]

 By: zabreg1 Mr White : December 28th, 2018-07:23

Correction: fur-lined camo Crocs.

 By: zabreg1 Mr White : December 28th, 2018-07:43
So, her taste is exquisite, obviously.

That is a great addition for you!

 By: blomman Mr Blue : December 27th, 2018-07:36
LGF, work for all occasions! Best Blomman

You certainly started something there...Firestarter.

 By: crown comfort : December 27th, 2018-09:37
but it had to be this one.

A Long F Roll Call? [nt]

 By: amanico : December 27th, 2018-12:40

We had it but some missed it :) [nt]

 By: Ares501 - Mr Green : December 28th, 2018-05:46

Last of the great!

 By: Ares501 - Mr Green : December 28th, 2018-05:45
Cheers D

The Best?

 By: zabreg1 Mr White : December 27th, 2018-07:25
My best and only catch in 2018 was... The might LGF, what else. HAGWE. ...  

Yes, 2018 was a very slow year for me as well...

 By: blomman Mr Blue : December 27th, 2018-07:37
But the highlight is the same! Best Blomman

LOL! Still miss the stickers...! [nt]

 By: blomman Mr Blue : December 27th, 2018-10:21


 By: Arie - Mr Orange : December 27th, 2018-10:28
So sooner or later we will find out you have bought the sticker factory inventory at a bankruptcy auction...

You can have them. [nt]

 By: zabreg1 Mr White : December 28th, 2018-07:23

Why are you giving him ideas!!?? [nt]

 By: Ares501 - Mr Green : December 28th, 2018-05:47

I took them off.

 By: zabreg1 Mr White : December 27th, 2018-10:32
Don't care about them.

True eye catcher Cheers D

Same here dear Henrik [nt]

 By: Ares501 - Mr Green : December 29th, 2018-14:17

Henrik, your photos of the Breguet are another level. Another planet.

 By: zabreg1 Mr White : December 28th, 2018-07:27
But the Blancpain is something else. I love it.

Thanks a lot, my dear friend! [nt]

Not surprising yet still great, Henrik!

All the best to you and your family in 2019! 👍🏻

Great and stunning opening shot my dear friend Blomman!

That Long F Sub is a superb catch! You were very lucky to find this rare variant!! I did deveral interesting catches this year. Will post here four which I feel are the most important among them... the Best of 2018 I feel. Have a great New Year 2019 with ...  

4 Aces, dear Abel!

 By: blomman Mr Blue : December 27th, 2018-08:14
What a great watch year you had! Wishing you a even better 2019, my friend! Best Blomman

Thanks a lot dear friend Blomman!! Yes, Four Aces! Lol! I have been in the hunt of the FF for almost two years! And several months for the Panerai. ...

 By: Subexplorer : December 27th, 2018-11:00
... I´m really satisfied with this year catches! Thank you for your good wishes! All the best, Abel.

The JLC is my favourite among your 2018 best.

 By: crown comfort : December 28th, 2018-00:53
Had the pleasure to play with HS's Universal Time and it's a great looking watch.

Thanks you dear friend CC! Yes, the JLC Universal Time is an outstanding timepiece...

 By: Subexplorer : December 28th, 2018-05:21
... the dial, the complications make for a very attractive piece! All the best for the New Year 2019 my friend! Abel

Nice catches Abel

 By: Baron - Mr Red : December 28th, 2018-02:22
Wishing you the very best for 2019

Wow, that’s a great lineup.,,

 By: Cpt Scarlet : December 28th, 2018-02:24
and I love the variety, that’s the true spirit of a watch collection.

Thank you so much my dear Captain! Yes, in variety I find a lot of fun and enjoyment.

 By: Subexplorer : December 28th, 2018-05:17
These timepieces are all in my "waiting box", you know! Cheers! Abel

Variety is the spice of life..

The Blancpain is so cool.

 By: zabreg1 Mr White : December 28th, 2018-07:28
I still regret not getting one when I could. But overall, I say 4 for 4. Not bad, my dear Abel, not bad at all.

Thanks a lot for your kind comments dear friend Zabreg!! Yes, the Blancpain FF is the Nr One of this year...

 By: Subexplorer : December 28th, 2018-08:02
... and would say one of the watches which gave me more satisfaction to catch in the last years. I really wanted that watch and I lost the opportunity of getting it several times till a few months ago when a friend made it possible to buy it at the Geneve... 

The fantastic four, Abel!

 By: KMII : December 28th, 2018-09:45
Hope 2019 turns out to be another great year for you and your family, watch- and otherwise 👍🏻

LGF on a Four Liner is too usually for me, everybody has LGF on a Four Liner, so boring ;-)).

 By: Walter2 : December 27th, 2018-08:00
I have LGF on a Two Liner 14060M (kidding modus off). ...  

LOL! Great pair Walter! :) [nt]

 By: blomman Mr Blue : December 27th, 2018-08:15

Thanks for your kind words Abel. I also wish you a healthy and happy New Year!

 By: Walter2 : December 28th, 2018-01:09
I am undecided, i like the empty dial from the Two Liner, but i am also a fan of the roman on the Four Liner, which Rolex write on the dial. Abrazo Walter

I understand you Walter!! Each has its own charm! The two liners got the heritage of earlier Submariners, is cleaner, purer. The four liner follows...

 By: Subexplorer : December 28th, 2018-05:24
... the design of the celebrated reference 5512 and with a long F you get a rarer variant. Not an easy choice!! Thank you for your kind good wishes!! Buen año 2019! Un abrazo! Abel

You are not alone my friend Walter...

 By: Subexplorer : December 28th, 2018-06:27
... I also own a plain 14060M four liner bought brand new several years ago. I took it scuba diving and in several trips abroad. A superb daily beater it is!! Cheers! Abel ...  

Yes ! But dont forget, only Two Liner 14060 "M" from 2002-3 to 2007 with the Chronometer Caliber 3130 (but no COSC). This is a rare bird too!

 By: Walter2 : December 28th, 2018-06:04
The older 14060 without "M" has the Caliber 3000 without Breguet balance spring.

I would go after Zorro

 By: Ares501 - Mr Green : December 28th, 2018-06:10
Cheers D

Now you're just showing off.

2x Best of 2018

 By: JLCman : December 27th, 2018-08:17
Without question the Purists community watch of the year - the LGF. Without you guys I wouldn‘t have examined its secret merits... And my own Find of the Year - the Vicenterra Tycho Brahe Blue version... ...  

Two very different but equally...

 By: blomman Mr Blue : December 27th, 2018-10:22
Appealing! Two great catches for 2018! Best Blomman

Little bit of green is always good

Green arrow detail is for me the best!

So...Best of 2018 for me

 By: crown comfort : December 27th, 2018-09:31
was in the end, the Rolex 14060M LGF, because... I'm not alone and the bug is spreading. And what can be better than ending the year with a mystery GTG celebrating true friendship. But hey, you know what they say" what happens in Vegas..." With all those ...  

What happens in Vegas, stays...

 By: blomman Mr Blue : December 27th, 2018-10:24
Three awesome watches, my friend! Best Blomman

Yep, shocking! :) [nt]

Welcome to the World of Rolex Arie!! Never say Never!! (I said that too many times!!) The lure of Rolex is so strong because they are superb watches!

Interesting podium and all Rolex

 By: crown comfort : December 28th, 2018-00:58
but I do remember all those Kermit shots from the summer, so that one must have been up there as well?

No, Kermy is at #10

 By: Arie - Mr Orange : December 28th, 2018-01:02
I have been using the OnMyWrist app this whole year to get stats In order to find out which watches should be flipped in order to get a collection on max. 12 watches. But it is very hard letting go. ...  

Yes, I remember that too. [nt]

Max 120 is more realistic... [nt]

I still miss shot of Kermit as one of great additions to your collection

 By: Ares501 - Mr Green : December 28th, 2018-06:00
We both had same year Cheers D

The second shot is always a winner.
