The WS for April 5th - โ€˜Watches and Workโ€™ is live

Apr 04, 2019,05:17 AM

This may be one of the earliest Singapore midnights but needs must - I am off to a meeting and would otherwise not be able to post in time ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™‚๏ธ

The theme is โ€˜Watches and Workโ€™ and what you see as work is open to your interpretation of course. If office is not your thing but the great outdoors, the garden or taking care of children or grandchildren is, these are all suitable environments ๐Ÿ˜Š

So what watches do you wear when โ€˜workingโ€™?

For me itโ€™s very much an office, still. The culture has radically changed at our company over the past years, meaning itโ€™s gone from suit and tie to something like smart casual. Which means that pretty much all of my watches qualify. In fact the ones that donโ€™t unfortunately get little wrist time as a consequence (I know, too much time spent working).

So in no particular order a couple of recent shots:

Looking forward to your entries and have a great weekend!

Very interesting and potentially broad theme! I'll stick to the two watches that are following me in the US for the spring semester, here they are in a few recent, work-related shots:

Great theme dear KMII .

The watches that i wear the most during ,,office hours,, ...  

Blue, white and salmon, for the Dutch flag of sorts ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป

 By: KMII : April 4th, 2019-09:20
These are really cool choices! Reminding me to play some more with straps on my watches ๐Ÿ˜Š

Cool collection [nt]

I'm boring at work

 By: NT931 : April 4th, 2019-08:37
I tend to favour blue or white shirts, colors that match brown straps and black/navy straps. No surprises that vintage is often an easy match! Wearing an oversized Doxa (love the numerals!), on a navy strap today. ...  

What a truly amazing Doxa, NT931 ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

 By: KMII : April 4th, 2019-09:21
Blue and white are not boring as such ๐Ÿ˜Š


 By: NT931 : April 6th, 2019-18:33
As a Pet Shop Boys song goes, I don't mind "Being Boring"

Worn today in the office

PP Ref. 2526 with new blue strap ...  

A truly fantastic piece, Saxon!

 By: KMII : April 4th, 2019-09:22
And the strap is a perfect match ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป

Wow, a true candy! [nt]

2526 the Queen of all Calatravas ! A pure beauty

 By: Mike H : April 6th, 2019-08:46
I love all in this piece and the special 2 P back to back is a small detail that I love also. Isn't it a Serpico y Laino dial btw? Congrats on this fantastic piece

Dial is double signed Serpico y Laino Caracas

 By: Saxon : April 6th, 2019-09:33
Thanks for your kind words ...  

So here are my favorite...

What spectacular choices, Nico!

 By: KMII : April 4th, 2019-10:07
No wonder JLC is prominent ๐Ÿ˜Š

Thatโ€™s a killer trio in anyoneโ€™s book ๐Ÿ˜Š

 By: KMII : April 4th, 2019-10:20
Actually eagerly awaiting my next dress watch. Should be arriving in a week and a half or so ๐Ÿคž๐Ÿป

Breguet? [nt]

Was in the running but got sold right under my nose ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™‚๏ธ

Love that Reverso, Nico [nt]

The MMR is a grail watch

not that the others are slouches. Isn't it nice to have a repeater at work? Best Andreas

Great working watches my dear Nicolas!!...

 By: Subexplorer : April 6th, 2019-07:16

original topic...

 By: Izhik : April 4th, 2019-12:03
that's the one for science work in the office.... and this one, mainly for outdoors stuff... ...  

merci...comme toujours, but I think you nailed it strong with your photos...

 By: Izhik : April 4th, 2019-12:23
both JLCs are amazing, the Duometre is just art....

What's on my wrist to day at work...

A winner imho ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ˜˜

 By: Watchonthewrist : April 7th, 2019-14:02
Looking forward to see there atelier soon

Not sure yet but you never know ๐Ÿ˜‰

 By: Watchonthewrist : April 8th, 2019-01:53
Was really impressed by the 1 and 2 . Am in the area next month so will pay them a visit ๐Ÿค—

Looking forward to seeing the outcome...

 By: KMII : April 8th, 2019-02:54
And as you said, one never knows I was surprised to have found some very interesting inspiration for Soviet watches on Watchprosite (helpfully pointed out by ChristianDK)

One is relatively well known, one less so ๐Ÿ˜‰

 By: KMII : April 8th, 2019-17:41
But very interesting as a result ๐Ÿ˜

Hereโ€™s my work watch its natural environment.

 By: ektaylor : April 4th, 2019-14:50
Except that behind that door is a 3 Tesla MRI, or 30,000 Gauss. I need 29 more Milgausses to enter. ...  

So even Omega is not quite adequate?

 By: KMII : April 4th, 2019-20:14
Like your workplace! And of course a perfect choice of watch for it ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป

Sounds like an exciting experiment...

Here is my current "work" watch...

 By: jporos : April 4th, 2019-15:06
when I am working on construction projects at home. My Laco, my normal beater, is still at the watchmakers but will have to go back to Germany for repair. In the meantime, this Ventura sure takes a beating! HAGWE! ...  

Guess my profession ๐Ÿ˜„

 By: : April 4th, 2019-16:43

Several hours left in the office...

 By: KMII : April 5th, 2019-03:05
Hopefully tomorrow, though ๐Ÿคž๐Ÿป

I guess Director, like it says ๐Ÿ˜‰

 By: KMII : April 4th, 2019-20:17
Great shots and now you really made me want a negroni ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป

I hope it isn't surgery ;)

 By: donizetti : April 5th, 2019-12:52
Lovely pieces and I envy you! Great work environment! Best Andreas

Honestly, chasing after my son and keeping him from killing himself

 By: thegrailwatch : April 4th, 2019-22:57 way more labor intensive than my "other" day job. Here's my beloved Pontiac with Super Compressor case at work in the field. ...  

How true. ;) [nt]

 By: amanico : April 4th, 2019-23:00

I know exactly what youโ€™re talking about ๐Ÿ˜Š

 By: KMII : April 4th, 2019-23:43
Thatโ€™s why I use something like this for it: ...  

Great shot, K. [nt]

 By: amanico : April 4th, 2019-23:56

That is one of the nicest Doxas I've ever seen

 By: thegrailwatch : April 5th, 2019-04:09
Admittedly, not a Doxa guy, but this one comes together very nicely. Also, a perfect watch to cope with the little ones.

Thanks a lot, Thegrailwatch!

 By: KMII : April 5th, 2019-21:29
I always wanted a Doxa and the Anniversary Searambler just seems to match my taste best - subdued but with all the classical design elements. And I also missed all of the Black Lungs ๐Ÿ˜‚

A few shots while chained to desk

 By: jml_watches : April 5th, 2019-00:03
Hi All Like lots of others here - chained to the desk during working hours. Looking forward to breaking the shackles later today! HAGWE Cheers JML ...  

Love your desk clock โฐ ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป

 By: KMII : April 5th, 2019-00:05
And the others arenโ€™t shabby, either ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป


 By: KMII : April 5th, 2019-21:30
Not sure I have seen it before but really cool ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป

Yes -handwound

Think from late '90s even have a catalogue with it in. Don't see many. Cheers JML

Even when the GPS doesnโ€™t work we are not lost !

 By: Prodyutb : April 5th, 2019-03:19
You only need a fine chronometer and a good sextant. ...  

Nowadays one can be at work everywhere

 By: Tyo : April 5th, 2019-04:45
Bleu blanc rouge, France is in the air. ...  

Often lighting is not optimal, though...

 By: KMII : April 5th, 2019-21:32
Didnโ€™t seem to be an impediment in your case, though ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป I try to avoid working on planes if I can help it and use flight as reflection / reading time instead. Doesnโ€™t always work out, though ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™‚๏ธ

Top shot, Tyo. [nt]

Waiting for my plane

 By: donizetti : April 5th, 2019-08:10
Which takes up too much of my work week In retrospect I shouldโ€™ve picked a different shirt for the suit. Anyway, weekendโ€˜s close, HAGWE all, Andreas ...  

Thanks, Nicholas! [nt]

Fantastic watch, pure understatement

 By: Saxon : April 5th, 2019-10:31
Would like to hear it striking...

I was to curious

 By: Saxon : April 5th, 2019-13:06
and after some searching I found a video in the www. It is a pity that one cannot observe the hammers while working due to the solid case back. But still a fantastic watch.


 By: donizetti : April 5th, 2019-13:18
Here at least is a shot of the movement I made when the watch was serviced so you can have a look at the hammers. Best Andreas ...  

Wonderful ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป

 By: KMII : April 5th, 2019-21:35
Old school subtlety - you donโ€™t see it but know itโ€™s no less fine for being hidden ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

Thank you, Andreas

 By: Saxon : April 5th, 2019-23:31
A wonderful movement, and quite an impressive number of jewels.

With this watch...

 By: KMII : April 5th, 2019-21:33
You can pick any shirt ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป And I hear you on too much time...

Really impossible to choose between the two ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป

 By: KMII : April 5th, 2019-21:49
And your shots are excellent, too! I know what you mean by business traveling being optimal for watch shots - there are times when no one is vying for your attention and you can easily take a picture or two ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

Thanks my friend!

 By: nomadgiles : April 6th, 2019-06:17
And not forgetting watch photo opportunities during those interminable conference calls. Cheers. G.


 By: KMII : April 6th, 2019-06:22
I hear you ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

Thanks Mike!

 By: nomadgiles : April 6th, 2019-20:46
Trust all is well and spring has arrived in Paris - it is just peeking through here. Best, Giles

Hello dear KM! Interesting theme you choose for this week end!!

 By: Subexplorer : April 5th, 2019-12:47
And beautiful watches to start the thread! My days are spent inside an office surrounded by papers and my computer. Very dull and boring atmosphere as my office is inside a factory so the only window shows no sky, only machines and people working... ... s...  

Muchas gracias amigo Nicolas!! Yes the 2998 was a great find...

 By: Subexplorer : April 5th, 2019-14:55
... a few years ago. So glad you like the Milgauss straps!! You know... I still have the original Oyster bracelet absolutely never worn! Will need to try it some day! Lol! Hagwe my dear friend! Abrazos! Abel

I guess many of us are in the same situation, Abel...

 By: KMII : April 5th, 2019-21:52
Even if there is a view from the office, itโ€™s often not easy to take the time to enjoy it. But the watches somehow got enjoyed more frequently ๐Ÿ˜‰ Some fantastic choices that are certain to make your work nicer ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป A great weekend to you, too, Abel! ... 

Thank you dear KM! Absolutely true what you say...

 By: Subexplorer : April 6th, 2019-07:14
... watches bring me much joy everyday at the office. Iโ€™m happy to know you like the choices to play on this week end Wrist Scan! Hagwe my dear friend!! Abel

I usually wear...

This... (taken today) Or this... To work ๐Ÿ˜Š I kinda in the mood of bumper automatic ๐Ÿ˜‰ Best Jev ...  

Constellation or Seamaster...

 By: KMII : April 5th, 2019-21:54
Both are understated, yet sublime, charming choices. Have a great weekend!

Some that I have worn for work :)

 By: S F : April 5th, 2019-23:41
Other than the Chopard for trips, the rest I would say are pretty random. Cheers! SF ...  

Definitely is!

 By: KMII : April 6th, 2019-00:24
Your first Chopard, Nico? ๐Ÿ˜‰

You have exquisite taste for sure ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป

 By: KMII : April 6th, 2019-00:03
These are all fantastic specimen! And I can definitely imagine how the Time Traveler One makes for a great travel companion ๐ŸŒ

These are really cool!

 By: KMII : April 6th, 2019-00:44
Glad thereโ€™s time for hobbies left ๐Ÿ˜Š Lovely Mille Miglia!

Too funny! ;) [nt]

I always did my best work . . .

 By: Dr No : April 6th, 2019-16:38
. . . at Maggie's. On my wrist Monday night when I made that shot: this vintage Omega. Ref 2242, 18 jewel 30T2SC. Ca '43. Art ...  

What a beautiful picture, Art!

 By: KMII : April 6th, 2019-17:41
I am completely inept when it comes to the flowers in the background but the Omega fits like a charm ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป

I don't know what they are, either, but . . .

 By: Dr No : April 6th, 2019-17:44
. . . what a sea of pink! Should've had a pink gold watch on ;-) . . .

Holy carp - What a shot!!

 By: ChristianDK : April 8th, 2019-22:56
the Watch I mean ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜

You should've been there last Monday night. Jim had . . .

 By: Dr No : April 9th, 2019-16:17
. . . a few great shots . . . . . . of his own. I was really trying not to jump up and down on that last shot of his ;-) . . .

Those are insane shots!!

 By: ChristianDK : April 9th, 2019-22:58
I love how you casually check your watch after each shot. I can imagine your friend Jim looking up โ€œWoah, did you see THAT!!?โ€. Art:โ€No...sorry.....was it good? .....I was just enjoying this wonderful patina. ....โ€

I let Jim know exactly when . . .

 By: Dr No : April 10th, 2019-00:25
. . . a memorable shot was made because he has access to the security cameras. Editing video is a snap if he knows when the shot occurred.

Jim makes those five and six rail attempts . . .

 By: Dr No : April 10th, 2019-08:45
. . . with his 'standard' cue, fitted with a medium tip. For straight shots or banks under four rails, he uses a Denali cue with a very soft or ultra soft tip, same as me. Softer tips afford better cue ball control at the expense of energy. I've never mad...
