Our July WS event “The Special One” is Open Now!!

Jul 05, 2024,12:20 PM

Hello dear friends!

I have the pleasure of being your host this weekend and as announced this is the Theme for the July edition of our Wrist Scan event.

 I’m asking our participants to share that special watch which resides in their watch boxes which inspires a deep satisfaction and pride of owning when wearing or with just viewing it.

As we feel some of our friends here own several watches which could enter in this “Special” category I am asking to limit their entries to not more than three pieces in case they can’t choose only one.

As usual participants can send entries for the Static Shot or Wrist Shot category or for both.

Our dear Art will judge an special “Classic” category for vintage watches and a “Best Watch of The Month” will be awarded among all watches submitted.

Our event will close on Sunday afternoon and Judges will post their veredicts after the closing.

I wish a very nice and relaxed weekend and a lot of enjoyment participating in our classic WS event.

Best cordial regards

Hello dear Abel and friends ! This is a great theme for WristScan and one that certainly made give thought on to how best to answer. The difficulty as a collector is that I can honestly say that I only have watches that are special to me. My first watch i...  

Hello dear Captain! I´m happy to know you like the theme for this weekend. Agree with you that to answer the theme is a big challenge for a collector as we own what we love and many times...

It’s definitely a keeper for life …

 By: Cpt Scarlet : July 5th, 2024-16:53
In my opinion it’s the Newman Daytona of the Patek world. I’ve had this watch for more than ten years.

I can well understand it´s a keeper for life! Agree with your opinion: it´s the Daytona of Pateks! Interesting to know that you have been enjoying it for more than ten years and I´m sure...

Hello dear S F! Thank you so much for your kind compliment. And thank you for your entry. The GMT 1675 is a wonderful "Special" for sure. An early example with minute track...

Thks my friend...I was late into the vintage game and I have been focusing on Rolex GMTMs ever since.

 By: markosa : July 5th, 2024-17:13
Stowa Partitio (numbered 23 which match my age at the time is a bonus!) - bought to celebrate my graduation and getting my first job. The watch itself is very versatile hence I have a couple of additional nato straps for different occasions. Happy Friday ...  

Great sentiment …

Some terrific watches and great shots here! I'll throw my hat in with three:

 By: Modernahab : July 5th, 2024-20:47
If it had to be only one: LE of 500 in 1996 (the year my daughter was conceived); part of the Reverso revival, with one of the only shaped integrated chrono movements I've heard about, and possible the first post-quartz integrated manual-wind chrono, to b...  

Indeed superb trio.

 By: hora12reborn : July 5th, 2024-20:53

Hello Modernahab! What a wonderful trio you share here! Your Reverso is to die for and the connection with your daughter makes it so Special...

 By: Subexplorer : July 5th, 2024-23:43

Many thanks!

Three beautiful choices …

 By: Cpt Scarlet : July 6th, 2024-09:30
I particularly like the Roger Dubuis from an era that I remember and enjoyed collecting watches.

👍 congrats!

 By: smironov : July 6th, 2024-23:40

Now we’re talking!

 By: KMII : July 7th, 2024-05:03
Shaped watches are not that common or popular but your trio certainly shows the pinnacle of the art 🙌🏻👌🏻👏🏻

I definitely like all of your Threesome, the JLC Reverso Chrono being really special !

 By: hs111 : July 7th, 2024-09:23
But I understand as well your other two choices – again, a great Trio of fine watches, Not more, no less ! Cheers & Best, 😊😊

Hello hora12! ... I know, I know... It´s not easy to choose. The theme this weekend is very challenging. Not easy to choose only one among these three beauties. Fortunately...

Thanks for your kind words.

All very elegant and I can definitely see why you would choose these 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻


 By: hora12reborn : July 8th, 2024-11:39

Dear Abel, i really love your theme this month but i must admit it is also really hard to only pick 3. That being said it is also a great way to reflect on our collection !

 By: Chronometer (aka yacomino) : July 5th, 2024-23:36
I am sure some of my selection will not be a surprise to many! The Maritime AE chrono for me is the ultimate chic weekend watch, the AE XPS is my ultimate office versatile watch and the Lange Up Down, well, it’s the up/down! ) ...  

Hello dear friend Yacomino! I knew that the theme was a challenging one when I thought about it as it was not easy for me either to make a choice. We buy watches which make our hearts...

 By: Subexplorer : July 6th, 2024-00:06
... tick very fast and though we know they are just objects we can´t resist falling in love with them. So... how to make a very narrow choice? You share here three superb pieces. I was sure you would include at least one of your recently bought Chopards. ... 

It’s certainly difficult …

 By: Cpt Scarlet : July 6th, 2024-09:38
Especially when you have show us these three special watches. I always thought the salmon dial would be my choice but the aqua blue really hits the spot for me. Best regards Captain

It certainly looks special …

 By: Cpt Scarlet : July 6th, 2024-20:41
Good to have something so different in your collection.

Thank you my friend

Special in every way…

 By: Cpt Scarlet : July 6th, 2024-09:51
Hello dear Watchonthewrists, I didn’t realise that your journey with independent watches started with the CDVK, definitely a memorable moment. The AK06 is an epic piece and the Remontoire is a modern classic. Best regards Captain

Hello Watchonthewrists! It´s always my pleasure to host the WS events, thank you so much. You share here three big guys representative of your love for independents.

It's what they wore daily from 1971 through the 2000s. Feels great on my wrist, though what some may interesting is the sound of the clangy bracelet is perhaps just as important. Never consciously realized it was dad's 'soundtrack'... until i wore it. Hop...

Hello Abel Nice theme this month and enjoying everyone’s posts. My least worn watch but always enjoyed. Thank you for hosting. 🍻 ...  

Hello Kurt! Thank you! Always a pleasure to host our events. Great Special watch in your collection... and in mine too. I´m very fond of this watch.

It looks so nice on your wrist with that well worn yellow Nato. The golden dial of this watch is awesome!! Thanks for sharing. Hagwe! Abel

Your the king of the ultimate cool shot!

A special one, indeed…

 By: KMII : July 8th, 2024-10:38
And love your pairing - superbly judged 🙌🏻👌🏻👏🏻

Here are two for me

 By: Spangles - Dr. Tabby : July 6th, 2024-17:24
The first is the most special because it's on the wrist of my wife: This one is special because it's on my 7 parts sweet potato, 2 parts chaos goblin, 1 part sociopath kitty Richard. ...  

Hello Spangles! Thank you for sharing your two Specials! You have good reasons to consider them as choices to answer our challenge of this weekend theme.

 By: Subexplorer : July 6th, 2024-19:39
The Breguet is a superb watch and looks gorgeous on your wife´s wrist. The Credor is a very classic versatile design of course. Looks like your cute kitten likes it too! Lol! Keep enjoying so much! Thank you for your entry and Hagwe! Abel

Thank you!

Here it is again on my 8 parts sweet potato, 2 parts hungry old man kitty Roger: ...

Breguet …

 By: Cpt Scarlet : July 7th, 2024-09:40
Good to see this elegant piece being enjoyed by your wife and your Credor is a classic piece.

Late but hopefully not too late 😁

 By: KMII : July 7th, 2024-04:59
Here go some of mine 👍🏻 ...  

Aahh.. That wonderful VC really is one of my absolute favs in your watch box.. Great picture as well.. And the GS..

 By: hs111 : July 7th, 2024-09:07
.. Hi–Beat 35k with that wonderful dial is a compelling piece as well. I like this blue strap also !! 👍 – Continue to enjoy your Specials in the very Best of your health ! Chapeau and Cheers ! 😊😊

Thanks so much for the kind words 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻

 By: KMII : July 8th, 2024-10:40
The second even says ‘Special’ on the dial, so hard to omit 😂🤷🏻‍♂️

The Prestige…

 By: Cpt Scarlet : July 7th, 2024-09:17
Absolutely fabulous and a watch that definitely qualifies as “The Special One”.

It was a happy moment over 5 years ago when it joined 😁

 By: KMII : July 8th, 2024-10:41
Everything I have been looking for in a ‘special’ watch according to my taste 😊👌🏻🙏🏻

As most here…

 By: KMII : July 8th, 2024-10:42
I struggled to reduce the number and then it was the lack of time at the airport which forced my hand a bit 😂🤷🏻‍♂️

I see . Good selection none the less!

 By: Chronometer (aka yacomino) : July 8th, 2024-23:30

Never too late my dear friend KM. Ahh! THAT VC! Almost your signature watch. Classic and singular design. And you know my love for GS watches: under the radar, high finish...

 By: Subexplorer : July 7th, 2024-13:40
... accurate and dials to die for. What else? Beautiful example you share here. Thank you so much for your entry my dear friend. Have a nice Sunday! Abel

And it even says Special on the wrist 😊

 By: KMII : July 8th, 2024-10:42
Thanks a lot for the kind words Abel, much appreciated 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻

The One …

 By: Cpt Scarlet : July 7th, 2024-10:45
My final choice is the first Patek Philippe watch that I owned and started my passion for the legendary watch maker. It’s also the watch that I wore on my wedding day and will always be with me on my wrist and in my heart… Great watches, great chocolate )...  

Thank you my friend …

 By: Cpt Scarlet : July 7th, 2024-12:44
The chocolate never disappoints 😉

Ha ha ha! Agree!! ;)

 By: Subexplorer : July 7th, 2024-13:37

The movement in your Patek is alluringly beautiful, Cap. Any . . .

 By: Dr No : July 7th, 2024-14:54
. . . 9"'-90 would be on my 'most precious' list, too. Art

The classic of your collection 👌🏻👍🏻

 By: KMII : July 8th, 2024-10:44
Was expecting a slightly different shot of it (was it Sting?), which I always associate with you and this watch 👏🏻🙌🏻

The three watches in my collection that qualify as most special . . .

 By: Dr No : July 7th, 2024-15:35
. . . are the vintage '72 Grand Seiko . . . . . . which was acquired by Ken in Japan on my behalf and then serviced by Ohira-san(!) before making its way across the Pacific to my wrist, the billion-to-one '56 Omega Seamaster*, and . . . . . . the astonish...  

That CO 2494 is phenomenal Art!

 By: Chronometer (aka yacomino) : July 7th, 2024-19:01

Three great Special watches you share here dear Art!

 By: Subexplorer : July 7th, 2024-19:32
My part in getting that rare 2494 is so small compared to your efforts making the Flilghtmaster arrive to my hands happily ticking! I’m so happy that the 2494 resides in your collection!! Keep enjoying your Special watches including your Dad’s Sea Lion so... 

Truly amazing, all three 👌🏻👍🏻

 By: KMII : July 8th, 2024-10:45
I have a huge crush on the first but it seemed impossible to get you to part with it at our long ago GTG 😂😉🤷🏻‍♂️

You're not the only one! Cazalea tried his best . . .

 By: Dr No : July 8th, 2024-16:24
. . . to get me to part with it, and then went on a crusade to find another in Singapore(?), which was also routed to Ken for servicing by Ohira-san. So Mike and I both have the same GS reference serviced by the God of GS!


 By: jml_watches : July 7th, 2024-17:25
Hi All A bit late in the day, but here's a few shots of my Futurematic, always enjoy wearing & feel lucky to have found one & also been able to get it serviced - gives the confidence to wear it even more knowing that. Cheers JML ...  

We can certainly understand that choice ! 👌👌

 By: Chronometer (aka yacomino) : July 7th, 2024-17:42

Thanks 👍

 By: jml_watches : July 7th, 2024-19:57

Marvelous Special watch dear JML!! I love the Futurematic!

 By: Subexplorer : July 7th, 2024-19:39
Agree that having it serviced gives confidence and enhances the pleasure of wearing it. Keep enjoying it so much! Cheers!!

Thanks - 👍
