Gentlemen, press your shutters, July 16-18 WristScan is underway

Jul 16, 2021,10:51 AM

We are looking for images of a watch where the time is shown using BOTH digital and analog displays, on one or more dials; movements can be mechanical, quartz or a combination. See the preceeding posts here for examples of these analog (hands) and digital (jumping/changing numerals).

We have some new Judges this week, enthusiastically waiting for your entries!

Alfaleh= WRIST (watches shown on an real live arm)

Eklektic= STATIC (watches with props, no wrist)

and Echi= WATCH OF THE WEEK (wild card pick, chosen from them all)

Let's have some fun with this!

Here go a couple of hybrid dive watches, with great stories to tell from a great friend of mine who's both an amazing diver and naturalist. While the watches aren't, the photographs are mine. Hope you'll like them. Really interesting theme, thanks Cazalea...  

Wow! I'm speechless

Both are Aqualand models from different ages but the first one is THE Aqualand, a mith!

A legend!

Cool Citizen diver ! ...

I had one of these years ago. Excellent watch, very reliable.

Always good to see a well used watch 😉👍

Been used as a tool as intended - really adds to the character of a watch. Cheers JML

Good choice...

The X33 is a seriously capable watch.

Very cool!

Due a service - the jumping hour takes its toll over time. ...  

Retro hand mechanisms are fragile too

At least I felt that way on my Gerber watch — I was never quite sure that it would make that return journey.

Very nice

Powerful looking watch ...

Good wrist shot.

Thanks Captain!

My contribution, i really like these ana-digi!

Here you go, two very different yet similar watches. Best, E. Ps: thanks a lot to Mike, it is a huge honor to contribute, being a humble member here! ...  

Two good choices for the WristScan theme ...

Your Breitling looks good with the black finish.

Hello dear Mike! Nice to have you hosting this weekend and…

 By: Subexplorer : July 16th, 2021-21:32
… with an interesting Theme which I feel we never explored before. Though I’m not very fond of digital watches because I usually forget the instructions to set the many features (complications) they usually offer I got two which I love so much. My Citizen...  

Diving adventures ...

 By: Cpt Scarlet : July 17th, 2021-08:45
The Citizen Aqualand takes me back just looking at one. I also had one and it was a superb watch for diving. Many happy memories ! The X-33 Skywalker with its titanium case and bracelet is my favourite “technical” watch. Have a great weekend !

Thank you so much for your comments dear Captain!

 By: Subexplorer : July 17th, 2021-12:57
I join you in the feelings about the Aqualand. Guess it already is a classic among diving watches. I expect to give much wrist time to my X33 soon! Have a nice weekend too my friend! Thank you for your good wishes! Cheers! Abel

Best regards to you...

 By: Cpt Scarlet : July 17th, 2021-13:06

Two amazing and beautiful watches 👌🏻

Definitely a cool 80’s watch ...

I particularly like the second photo, very interesting. Have a great weekend Hans !

One quartz, one mechanical

The CasiOak has analog hands, and can also be set to display time digitally concurrently, or date. (Modded here to a Rainbow CasiOak!) I'm sure several more Gentas will make their appearance, but this salmon guilloche model remains a firm favourite of min...  

Salmon guilloche ! ...

Beautiful watch from Genta. Well played NT !

Very nice — I’ve always wanted a Genta jump hour

 By: cazalea : July 17th, 2021-13:08
Came close once with this Day/Night But somehow the jumper was pushed aside by other, more urgent, watch “needs”. ...  

Analog and digital mix ...

Hi Mike and friends... I hope everyone is enjoying the weekend. The X-33 Skywalker maybe from a different time and place to the car in this shot, but it’s excellent when you need to time a car lapping a race circuit. The titanium bracelet is very cool but...  

Great choices dear Captain! The Casi Oak is a joyful timepiece. Very practical and food looking. The X-33 you know I love it. Look forward to give it much wrist time soon.

 By: Subexplorer : July 17th, 2021-14:24
Nice shots you share showing the X-33, specially love the first shot. Keeps me wondering about the car... Have a nice weekend my dear friend. Abel

This watch looks great ! Hope you are having an enjoyable weekend.

I think we get the message, loudly and clearly

 By: cazalea : July 18th, 2021-10:56
this great watch has a C8 Corvette horsepower digital display with a go-cart sized analog power reserve and seconds.

Sad to say I've none in my collection that meets this week's theme, but . . .

 By: Dr No : July 18th, 2021-15:43
. . . there is one on my hard drive . . . . . . taken many years ago at an alphabet soup gang g-t-g that I can't explain. I think, but not sure, that the 'fan' over the dial is actually the rotor. So the view of the dial is variable. Does this one count, ...  

I thought about that one too, and decided no; it's the (in)famous Sung Kang Limited Edition PuristsPro Perrelet offset dial driver's watch
