Announcing Theme for Wrist Scan edition Friday 16th, 2020 : "Chronographs Time!"

Oct 14, 2020,13:38 PM

Hello dear friends! 

I´ll have the big pleasure of hosting next Friday edition of our classic Wrist Scan.

Since my beginnings as a watch collector I felt fascinated by chronographs. I found and still find viewing their dials with different scales and sub dials and their several hands working mesmerizing. 

Chronographs were original intended as a working tool in many areas: engineering, military, medical, sports, etc.. and they are currently replaced by other more modern or technological instruments but for present days watch aficionados it keeps being a wonderful complication which allows interacting or playing with them and bring a lot of enjoyment.

So I thought that it would be very interesting theme to have a WS devoted to this type of timepieces and call our members to share their favorite chronographs and tell us a few words about them. Please share with us their movements if it is possible, as movements are also pieces of art which give us so much joy and satisfaction.

Of course if you don´t own a chronograph in your collection you are invited to participate with the watch you´ll be wearing along the week end.

As usual we will have three categories to be judged: Best Wrist Shot, Best Static shot and Best watch of the week (to be chosen among watches submitted along the week end).

So this week end will be Chronograph Time and I kindly request to wait till my opening post next Friday morning to begin posting your shots.

Best cordial regards, Abel.
