Here it is: WrstScan 03.06. - 05.06.2022 "Body and Soul"

Jun 03, 2022,16:57 PM

Dear friends,

thank you all for looking into the teasers to this round of WristScan and I must say, some nearly got the theme right!

In this theme I am asking you beautiful people to show me your body watch and your soul watch.

Body watch in the sense of a piece that makes you look good, compliments your body, you receive complimets for when wearing.

Soul watch is the one that you got for yourself only, and for nobody else, a piece that makes your soul sing, that only Γ½ou seem to understand and even love!

My body watch is the Sea-Dweller 43, which I find suits my sporty, masculine appearance very well.

I know, I am praising myself a bit here but it`s o.k. ... because nobody else does it for me smile!

My soul watch is one, that was called "aquired taste" at the time I got it.

But I didn`t care and had to have it for myself, only because I love it and found it absolutely beautiful, for my soul only:

Now to you lovely peope here: let us make this weekend`s round a wonderful parade of great body and very emotional soul watches!

Thank you all for looking.

Ahh! I finally get it now!

Was wondering what the foot photo was in reference to!

This weekend...

 By: patrick_y : June 4th, 2022-21:58
For our Body and Soul theme... I give you the humble Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso. I have been coveting the Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso ever since I was a teenager. Although the first watch I ever bought for myself after a year or two of working was a Patek Phil...  

One of my early memory of a haute horology watch is also a Reverso πŸ‘.

 By: COUNT DE MONET : June 5th, 2022-10:17
That is an interesting connection, we both have here. My Reverso was a rose gold Reverso, that I still don't own yet, for a reason I don't know πŸ€”. Thank you for playing and a good Subday to you, dear friend.

What can I say! Geniuses think alike!

 By: patrick_y : June 5th, 2022-18:56
Thank you and a good Sunday to you as well!

Fantastic choice!

 By: KMII : June 5th, 2022-14:57
And nice to hear it was the Reverso that took your soul πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘ŒπŸ»

Yes! I'm still very fond of the Revereso indeed!

 By: patrick_y : June 5th, 2022-18:58
And I really enjoy my first watch too - my Patek Philippe. But I could never get the Reverso out of my mind. One day I had the opportunity to acquire one and so I finally did.

When Ken posted an article about vintage Grand Seikos several years ago . . .

 By: Dr No : June 3rd, 2022-17:43
. . . one of the photos was of a 56GAC 25 064. I was so taken by that one image I had to have one. A year or so later, Ken handed me . . . . . . the GS I've been wearing since yesterday. I like the way it looks on my wrist, too. Art ...  

A philosophical entry, dear Art.

 By: COUNT DE MONET : June 3rd, 2022-19:20
A watch that is a soul and body watch at the same time. Very masculine and yet so delicate Seko here.

One of the most enticing vintage GS I am yet to get 😁

If you ever get tired of yours, Art, you know who to get in touch with πŸ˜πŸ˜‰πŸ€žπŸ»

Body... ...and soul. ...  

Let me guess: . . .

Very interesting ...

 By: COUNT DE MONET : June 3rd, 2022-19:29
I see your body watch as my soul piece, this lovely Octo. Amd your MB&F would look spectular on my wrist too. Well played!

Another philosophical entry tonight ...

 By: COUNT DE MONET : June 3rd, 2022-20:23
first entry is actually both, body and soul. Great looking shot of harmony. Another Patek representing soul, I like that! Have a great weekend too, dear Stoikos and thank you for your kind words.

You knew . . .

 By: Dr No : June 4th, 2022-17:03
. . . this was coming. 😌

"Smooth . . .

Very well thought through πŸ‘ŒπŸ»

And two superb watches chosen!

The big reveal ! …

 By: Cpt Scarlet : June 3rd, 2022-22:48
Well played dear Count ! This has been an intriguing start to WristScan this weekend. Two interesting choices, I love both of your watches. Back soon with my choices !

No pressure πŸ˜…

The COUNT is the best.

Thank you, dear Seconds 🎩

body... 5196R that i think looks good on my wrist soul... Breguet La Tradition that presents the internal workings of the watch have a great weekend everyone! ...  

Ahhh ... a La Tradition

 By: COUNT DE MONET : June 4th, 2022-08:03
I was also thinking to pick my La Tradition, but as a body watch, as it is quite a technical looking watch, hence masculine. But you are right: a La Tradition is a superb soul watch. Your 5116R has got good wrist presence, no doubt. Nice entries, dear ter... 

thanks hs111!

 By: terbaboom : June 4th, 2022-12:55

A Great elegant pair!

 By: KMII : June 5th, 2022-15:05
I am surprised that the Breguet doesn’t get more bodily attention / compliments 😊

thanks KMII!

 By: terbaboom : June 5th, 2022-15:28
i was in a shop once wearing my Breguet La Tradition and the salesperson commented that her colleague told her that my watch was very nice

Dear Count,

 By: S F : June 4th, 2022-09:56
Lovely body and soul combo to start this week's WS πŸ₯‚ My body watch - A Pam in the right size which to me is Luminor at 44mm or a Radiomir of 45-47mm. Soul Watch - Rolex GMTM, esp in something one could just pop by a store and pick one from a display. ...  

A PAM is the archetype of body watch πŸ’ͺ

 By: COUNT DE MONET : June 4th, 2022-10:19
Very strong Luminor on your wridt there. Your lovely GMT Master is soul food to go 😍. Thank you for your top entries, dear S F πŸ₯ƒπŸ₯ƒ

Really, love your attractive PAM input, with its so attractive dial.. The GMT will merge in anywhere !

 By: hs111 : June 4th, 2022-12:22
HAGWE & Bravo !! PS: One Q be allowed: - Is this attractive dial pattern (on the PAM) a Honeycomb type or a reflection of a light effect ?

Dear hs, thks for the kind comments!

 By: S F : June 4th, 2022-12:48
This is carbon fibre dial on a PAM140. Pattern is clearer under lights


 By: Mary Anny : June 4th, 2022-17:41

Thank you Mary Anny!

 By: S F : June 5th, 2022-04:43
Move the AM to the back of Pan and we get Pan Am😁

Thks dear Abel!

 By: S F : June 5th, 2022-04:44
You have many in that category and your 5508 is not surprising for a Subexplorer 😁.

Emotional theme …

Hello dear Count and friends, I love the concept of this theme and considering the different ways that we all choose to play with it. Body…The β€œBeast” that is the Zenith … The Montre d'Aeronef Type 20, with a diameter of 57.5mm ! Titanium case and vintage...

Well, this was a contemp dream for me.. true Body watch, GADA type ( Go Anywhere, Do Anything).. Another Body type, a bit fancy - from casual to dressing up And this GMT 6542 ( from IV 1958 !) came along after a long hunt.. real Soul -type for me.. Finall...  

Stunning Breguet ! …

 By: Cpt Scarlet : June 4th, 2022-13:19
A collectors dream as is your GMT 6542. I also agree with you about the Aquanaut, a sublime watch.

That Breguet Type XX is sooo you! πŸ‘

 By: COUNT DE MONET : June 4th, 2022-14:27
Great body watches, dear HS, would to call them mine too. Outstanding specimen of a 6542, a dream soul watch for many of us here. Have a great weekend, dear HS.

Hello, dear Count !.. Thx a lot for your kind interest & the nice words; I am glad you like some of the choices - really appreciated !

 By: hs111 : June 4th, 2022-14:38
And Yes, both the GMT 6542 & specifically the Breguet XX Rattrapante, are truly near to my heart, and real keepers for me, as you well have commented. Wishing you all the Best and HAGWE, to you & yours ! hs.

Hello, dear Abel ! Thx for your kind comment, although..

Hi dear friend HS! Yes, I have seen before but they are always a joy to view. Two adorable watches which I see them "so you" and well chosen as your Soul Watches.

 By: Subexplorer : June 5th, 2022-17:24
I can feel how enjoyable they are to wear on the wrist. Thank you for you kind words and good wishes my dear friend. Same to you! Best cordial regards, Abel

Hello, dear Abel !.. How kind that you again liked my choices and the selected tic-tacs..

 By: hs111 : June 5th, 2022-17:57
.. always rewarding to know, my friend. - And also likewise to be curious, what our respective friends have under their sleeves but are willing to share.. It’s one of the nice things here at WPS, that picture - and thoughts - exchange is one of the goals ... 

Dear SF, Thx for your kind looking & the nice comment !

 By: hs111 : June 5th, 2022-11:15
Glad you like these pieces ! Cheers !!

a superb choice of a watch for your Aquanaut! πŸ‘

I'm still waiting for my AD's grace to be upon me to let the watch choose me πŸ˜…

Thx for your nice words and I am..

 By: hs111 : June 5th, 2022-11:18
wishing you luck for yours ! Can only say, it’s one of my mostly worn pieces; also a bit under the radar and really unobtrusive ! Sure, you would like it !! Cheers,

Two bodies, two souls…

Four choices that describe you really well - great choices πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»

Dear Count !.. Thx for this stimulating theme, which makes one β€œlook inside Yours Truly”.. Both your choices well picked !

 By: hs111 : June 4th, 2022-12:32
Apart from the convincing Sea Dweller ( such type of Rolex almost a β€œMust” for a collection), I liked your PP a lot, with also this casual attire a great match ! HAGWE & Best, hs

My soul watch would be . . .

. . . Black Connie. I first saw Black Connie on TimeZone when Phil C (whose log-in is Hockey) owned her. Here's his photo posted 17+ years ago. I sat staring at this image for minutes on end. Imagine my state of mind when seeing a WTB from Phil on TZ for ...  

If there is a Purist with the most special story and connection to a watch, than it has to be you dear Art.

 By: COUNT DE MONET : June 4th, 2022-17:53
Very happy for you that this perfect watch has found its way to you. Same birth year and manufacturing year and that with such a rare Omega is not coincidence but fate. Or in other words: a soul watch.

Rare black dial …

 By: Cpt Scarlet : June 4th, 2022-22:29
Superb vintage Omega !

Beautiful black Connie πŸ€©β€¦

 By: Cpt Scarlet : June 5th, 2022-10:49
Rare and beautiful vintage Omega.

Aahhh, dear Art !.. What a great Connie, what great stories.

I have always enjoyed seeing your Soul mate ! Cheers, hs

Now that’s a story to end all stories, Art!

Especially since it turned to be your birth year watch, too πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘ŒπŸ»πŸ™ŒπŸ»

Thanks for inspiring me Count,

These two have both body and soul but the second one is a bit fragile, especially the glass that often refuses to stay in place... Great theme by the way! ...  

How sweet! πŸ˜ƒ "is a bit fragile, especially the glass that often refuses to stay in place..."

 By: COUNT DE MONET : June 4th, 2022-18:02
Being so fragile it makes it even a "psyche watch", connecting body and soul! Nicely played, dear Mary Anny πŸ‘.


 By: Mary Anny : June 4th, 2022-18:36

A similar Omega in my collection . . .

 By: Dr No : June 4th, 2022-18:20
. . . has a replacement crystal . . . . . . that was cemented in place by the watchmaker that serviced it last. I'm not suggesting cementing as a fix because that would make future replacements more difficult, but it's an option for less valuable watches....  

Two interesting and very different choices …

Thats a great Rolex combo.

... expect from a typical Panerai watch. The creamy ivory dial and the two metallic bronze rings make for a very stunning dial and a charming big 47 mm watch I feel. Have a nice week ahead my friend! Abel

My AD had this reference when I bought the 721.

 By: COUNT DE MONET : June 5th, 2022-10:11
Very wise pick, dear Andy_Mac: a 36 mm AP. Using the strong design, that stays strong in any size, to emphasize your body is very smart! Another great Rolex soul watch here, too πŸ‘.

Good shots Andy …

A tuxedo Longines is a beautiful soul watch, indeed. Not to mention your latest catch VC Traditionelle and a symphony of a watch, called 1815. Rolex seems to be a firm body watch for us here πŸ˜€. Have a good Sunday, my friend.

The Seiko chrono as a pure soul is a bit of a surprise but looking cloer to it I can see your point The second Seiko us much asier for me g to get as a soul watch. Nicely played.

Great choices dear friend KM!! Every one very special in its own category. I was sure your VC would be included among your soul watches. I feel it is "so you" that classy watch!
