Announcing WS Theme for week end of August 9th: Concourse d´Elegance!

Aug 07, 2019,06:50 AM

Hello friends! I will have the pleasure of hosting our traditional WS feature next week end.

Creativity and imagination of both our Hosts and our Members have allowed in the past editions to enjoy and have lots of fun with some Virtual sceneries: A crazy pool party, a Drive in movie season, we have been stranded in a solitary island and finally launched in a Space Mission to the Moon and beyond.

So, I thought to myself, why not to have our own Concourse d´Elegance asking once again our members a big dose of imagination to figure us in a gorgeous Italian Hotel standing by the sparkling blue waters of Lake Como to enjoy a week end full of glamour and charm?

Then, the challenge will be to ask participants to submit a picture of a classic car of their dreams (or may be one they actually own) AND of course pictures of the watch/watches you would be wearing on the wrist when driving that jewel on wheels along the Jury area.

As usual, three categories will be judged: Best static shot, best Wrist Scan and Watch of the Week.

I feel we should add a special category for “Best car of the Show”.

Please wait for my opening thread next Friday to join us for a week end full of sophistication, glamour and champagne and bring your best classic car and your favorite watches!

All the best, Abel.
