The WS for November - ‘Trick or Treat’ - is live

Nov 03, 2023,14:22 PM

As announced earlier by Captain Scarlet I will be the host for this weekend’s WE and the topic is ‘Trick or Treat’. I originally wanted to call it ‘treat or treat’, since I doubt we will see shots of being tricked 😉

So either you surprise or entertain me a with a Halloween-y shot or in case the days of collecting candy from neighbors and strangers are over, you could also show us the horological candy you have recently treated yourself to 🎃⏱️

As usual in the new format there will be four categories - Wristshot, Static, Watch if the Week and Vintage. I will announce the judges and verdicts in a separate thread on Sunday and am looking forward to seeing your entries this weekend!

…not the greatest fan of Halloween dear KM, much prefer Bonfire Night (Nov 5th) here in the UK. However I did recently treat myself to a custom strap for my BB Bronze, which I am pleasantly impressed with👌🏻 🍻 ...  

Makes for a fantastic combination 👌🏻🙌🏻

 By: KMII : November 3rd, 2023-18:03
And the colors are suitably autumnal 🍂👏🏻 To be honest I am quite happy to have missed Halloween this year, too - but yes, horological treats I quite like 😁

This fits you very well!

Kind words, thank you.

 By: KURT_DAVID : November 4th, 2023-07:45
Yes, it’s surprising when you take it off the NATO how different it wears.

Thank you Abel.

 By: KURT_DAVID : November 4th, 2023-07:47
Yes my first attempt at a pocket shot😀 Practice makes perfect! 🍻

Fantastic with the rainbow.

 By: hora12reborn : November 4th, 2023-20:11

I had to act fast 💨 with this shot!

 By: KURT_DAVID : November 5th, 2023-15:53
Cheers 🍻

And you won 🥇

 By: hora12reborn : November 5th, 2023-18:05

Thank you for looking Captain.

The strange combination of a Russian watch and

A Catalan vegetable. Molnija + salsifies, so autumnal!!! Enjoy this special time of the year guys. ...  

Thanks Abel!

 By: Mary Anny : November 3rd, 2023-20:34
The pocket watch has an interesting story to tell from its case back... But... Yes, next time! Let's enjoy this week-end's theme!

A fantastic autumnal shot…

 By: KMII : November 4th, 2023-07:18
But I am not sure I recognize a vegetable in there 😂 Pocket watches are underrated 🤷🏻‍♂️

Be it stealthy or not…

 By: KMII : November 4th, 2023-09:35
The watch in the foreground is properly tasty 😁👍🏻

One of the few instances of an easy...

Removable back cover. The movement is absolutely simple but nice and efficient.

Fabulous shot !

 By: Cpt Scarlet : November 5th, 2023-10:06
I love the natural lighting. Well played Simone !

Thanks Captain!

 By: Mary Anny : November 5th, 2023-10:21

My pleasure …

Hope you and your family are keeping well.

Halloween is a busy evening for us - over 100 kids usually - and this year as no different.

 By: Timeout : November 3rd, 2023-19:37
Didn’t have time to take photos - but here are some seasonal treats! ...  

Hello Timeout! 100 plus kids makes for a very busy Halloween night! Wow! I wish everybody had a lot of fun! Nice gathering of horological treats you share here.

 By: Subexplorer : November 3rd, 2023-20:26
Not easy to choose just one favorite ... but I would go for your sublime JLC this time. Have a nice weekend. Abel

Many thanks Abel.

 By: Timeout : November 3rd, 2023-20:47
Just about had enough candies to last the evening 🤣.

After so much candy…

 By: KMII : November 4th, 2023-07:19
How do you get them off the walls? 😂

Ha ha ha!! Of course!! Lol!

 By: Subexplorer : November 4th, 2023-13:38

The seasonal treats are what we were looking for 😁🎃

 By: KMII : November 4th, 2023-07:19
And what a harvest 🦾 Of course the KV on the pumpkin colored strap is the one to start off with but the rest are no less enticing 👌🏻🙌🏻

Thanks KM.

 By: Timeout : November 4th, 2023-12:39
Giving myself a chance in the vintage category with the 1st generation Datograph too 😉

Excellent collection of amazing watches 👌🏻😘

 By: Watchonthewrists : November 4th, 2023-07:22
A lot of treats

Many thanks.

 By: Timeout : November 4th, 2023-12:43
Been switching them back to winter straps in the last few weeks. I use caoutchouc lined straps in the summer to combat the heat and humidity.

Hello Timeout ! .. great pics you shared !..

 By: hs111 : November 4th, 2023-10:21
My personal favs are the KV, 1st shot, the Datograph & of course the Duomètre !! Well done & Cheers !! 😊

Many thanks HS.

 By: Timeout : November 4th, 2023-12:47
Pretty much my favorites too. Although the dial on the Patek is quite beautiful. I really like this one in RG - changes the completion completely from the original. The Havana was my first FPJ - love the RG overdose with the RG movement. I know the CB get... 

Thx a lot for sharing your feelings regarding your superb choices !

 By: hs111 : November 4th, 2023-13:40
Truly enjoyed all of them ! - Chapeau !! Best, 😊😊

Fantastic quintet.

Fabulous Voutilainen !

 By: Cpt Scarlet : November 5th, 2023-10:08
I love your choice of strap for this one.

Thanks Captain.

 By: Timeout : November 5th, 2023-14:00
The watch came with black and brown alligator straps. I asked Kari for this color also - great for summertime!

Hello dear KM!! Halloween is a rather new celebration here…

 By: Subexplorer : November 3rd, 2023-20:17
… in our Country. Of course we were familiar with this festivity through films and TV shows, specially those coming from USA. But as a local celebration or party during the night of October 31st I feel it arrived around 15 or 20 years ago. It’s a very fun...  

That Frankenstein…

 By: KMII : November 4th, 2023-07:22
Has very slender arms, if the Doxa looks so big on him 😂 On a more serious note, a superb selection of Halloween themed shots Abel - like always 🙌🏻👌🏻

Ha ha ha!! True dear KM. It looks like a very slender arm but it is effect of the shadows in a very poor rendition picture I used for background. Anyway I don´t know if the Doxa would be the choice...

 By: Subexplorer : November 4th, 2023-14:01
... of Mr. Karloff . Lol! Glad you liked my choices for the Halloween Theme. Enjoy your weekend my dear friend. Abel

Hello, my dear friend Abel !.. As I had missed the starting first Edition of the new format- WS, this time my best greetings and still Halloweeny wishes..

 By: hs111 : November 4th, 2023-08:43

Hello dear friend HS! We missed you on our past event and we are happy to have you participating in the present event. Of course we know that sometimes we have some personal engagements which...

 By: Subexplorer : November 4th, 2023-13:52

Great and varied selection Abel as usual!

 By: Timeout : November 4th, 2023-12:50
Are your sure you gave all the “props” back? That’s a lot of candy 😊

I love your candy shot Abel!

 By: Chronometer (aka yacomino) : November 4th, 2023-21:44

All treats and no tricks 🎃…

 By: Cpt Scarlet : November 5th, 2023-10:10

Have a nice Sunday! Abel

Amazing colour compositions, Abel!!!

Thank you so much Simone! Glad you like this old SD.

 By: Subexplorer : November 5th, 2023-13:22
A lot of scars on it makes me feel in an adventurous life with its previous owner. Best cordial regards Abel

Just had a real life it seems!

 By: Mary Anny : November 5th, 2023-15:38

Yes! It seems so! ☺️☺️

Here some of mine…

 By: KMII : November 4th, 2023-07:24
As I somehow managed to miss Halloween this year (business trip), they will be more of recently acquired treats 😉 ...  

Funny how two of them came with grained dials 😁

 By: KMII : November 4th, 2023-09:37
More of a luck if the draw that both became available close to one another 😊 And the 8Hz sound of the Chopard is truly mesmerizing 🏍️

Great selection KM.

 By: Timeout : November 4th, 2023-12:53
I hadn’t paid much attention to the Blancpain x Swatch but that’s a real stunner!

A bit of a lighthearted experiment 😁

 By: KMII : November 4th, 2023-17:55
Not done badly, mind - and apparently used prices of real FFs increased by 15% since 🤷🏻‍♂️

Great choices dear KM... and Big congrats on your new additions to your collection. That Chopard looks fantastic. I love those grained dials a lot. It was a surprise to view your new...

 By: Subexplorer : November 4th, 2023-14:09

Thanks so much Abel!

 By: KMII : November 4th, 2023-17:56
Glad you liked the watches and strap combinations - unfortunately no Halloweeny shots either in the archive or done last week 🤷🏻‍♂️

Aston Martin Racing 👀…

 By: Cpt Scarlet : November 5th, 2023-10:14
The DBS JLC looks intriguing. I don’t remember you having this one 🤷🏼‍♂️

The Amvox 2 has been…

 By: KMII : November 5th, 2023-11:21
A watch that I have been having on the wish list for ages - find it one of the most intriguing watches to come out of JLC in the last decades 😊👍🏻

I’m really pleased you got one …

 By: Cpt Scarlet : November 5th, 2023-11:58
It’s definitely a cool thing.


 By: jml_watches : November 4th, 2023-07:40
I'm with no tricks here! Just pure treats Cheers JML ...  

The first two shots are truly mind boggling 👌🏻👍🏻

 By: KMII : November 4th, 2023-09:38
Now you have truly put proper care and attention to the theme - hat off 🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻

Really love your first shots !!.. Especially the first, but..

 By: hs111 : November 4th, 2023-10:28
.. but also the last is such a well taken shot ! Best & Cheers !!

Thanks 👍👍👍

 By: jml_watches : November 4th, 2023-11:44

Great OMEGA you got there, awesome!

Thanks - always lots to like with Omega

 By: jml_watches : November 4th, 2023-11:44
Especially a vintage one

Great use of props here!!

 By: Timeout : November 4th, 2023-12:56
Would never have thought of the Le Creuset lid as a backdrop - even though I have 2 lurking in the kitchen cupboard🤣.

Good wrist shots !

 By: Cpt Scarlet : November 5th, 2023-11:50

Thanks :)

As always…

 By: KMII : November 4th, 2023-09:40
Whether you participate in the theme or not, you find superb shots to go with it 🙌🏻👌🏻👍🏻 The SUF is definitely a fitting piece as are the other two - the wall clock being a year round reminder. The only one missing (off the top of my head) is the Joker 😁👍🏻... 

Wow, thats a cool wall clock !

 By: hs111 : November 4th, 2023-08:24
Team, 😉. Not that easy for me this time, as there only rarely there is Halloween “celebrated” here, but I’ll try with some á propos shots, at least.. Let’s start with some of my fav treats with JLC E872 greetings from the (70ies) 2 treats of sugar candy w...  

Whether you participate or not…

 By: KMII : November 4th, 2023-09:42
The shots are superb! The Breguet shot is a classic of yours but on top there are so many seasonal greats that it’s hard to choose amongst them 👍🏻👌🏻

Great selection HS.

 By: Timeout : November 4th, 2023-13:01
I love the UG and the Type 20 in particular. Totally agree with you on the PP5172. I also went for the blue dial as I really like the casual feel of this one - compared to the salmon dial - particularly with the calfskin strap.

Hello dear friend HS!! How nice to have you participating in our Halloween celebration at WS! A great selection you share here with some surprises (at least for me or for my failing memory! Lol!)

 By: Subexplorer : November 4th, 2023-14:39
First I wish you to congratulate you for your Big Treat of 2023: that wonderful PP 5172 chronograph. I imagine you are enjoying it so much. Gorgeous! Then let me tell you I was surprised to view some watches I didn´t remember viewing before. As I said, my... 

Hello, my dear friend Abel !.. Thx a lot for your so kind viewing and the nice words !.. In fact, you know my “collection” pretty well, but..

 By: hs111 : November 4th, 2023-16:26
.. actually am even a bit “happy”, to have shared 2 Refs, you apparently haven’t been aware of.. (The UG and the 5513).. Lol !! 😉 And Yes, you are absolutely right, the arrival of the PP 5172 in WG, has been THE arrival for my stables, this year. - I have... 

Hello again dear friend HS! My big pleasure always to chat watches with you and to view and comment your watches.

 By: Subexplorer : November 4th, 2023-19:41
Being "horological twins" is an asset as I can remember many of your watches we share ownership. But by the other hand you own several more I admire and I don´t own (And I wish I also own! Lol!) Sometimes my memory fails and being yours a large and eclect... 

Excellent shots dear hs !

 By: Cpt Scarlet : November 5th, 2023-11:54
and your Patek 5172 Chrono is a real treat !

My pleasure !

Spooky treats 🦇…

Hello dear friends ! I hope everyone is enjoying the weekend. A few spooky treats to share with you … Starting with the pumpkin 🎃 … The ghostly Panerai from the deep … Beware of the full moon !… The creepy hand ! … Don’t have nightmares ! Captain ...  

Hello dear Captain! Happy Halloween! Some spooky shots you share here. Specially scary that last "wrist shot". Looks like Thing has a great taste for watches! Lol!

 By: Subexplorer : November 4th, 2023-15:53
Great Halloween shots sharing your wonderful RD, Panerai and Daytona. Guess I heard some wolf howling when viewing your Daytona shot! Enjoy a nice and relaxed weekend dear friend. Cheers, Abel

Thank you dear friend …

 By: Cpt Scarlet : November 5th, 2023-10:00
Hopefully, no long term effects ) ...  

Ha ha ha!! Hopefully will pass when sun rises!!

 By: Subexplorer : November 5th, 2023-13:26
A full moon is just once a month! Lol! Cheers! Abel

The creepy hand is simply epic!

 By: KMII : November 4th, 2023-17:57
Great theme appropriate combinations and shots 👍🏻👌🏻🎃

Thank you …

 By: Cpt Scarlet : November 5th, 2023-10:02
It was a lot of fun making this one 🦇

Cheers JML 🍻

 By: Cpt Scarlet : November 5th, 2023-10:02
Thank you for your kind words.

Several horror stricken shots - well done !

 By: hs111 : November 5th, 2023-12:14
Specifically liked the full moon and Creepy hand shots and that Panerai from the deep is cool, as well ! - Have a good Sunday afternoon & evening, dear Capt’n ! Best & Cheers !!

Not just candy for Halloween - toys are traditional . . .

 By: Dr No : November 4th, 2023-15:41
. . . offerings, too. ✌🏻 ...  

Lovely shot dear Art! I love old toys too. Specially miniature cars/trucks. I didn´t remember you had this Nomos in your collection. A very nice minimalistic design which I like so much.

 By: Subexplorer : November 4th, 2023-16:03
Have you owned this watch for some time or it is a recent addition? Enjoy a nice and relaxed weekend my dear friend. Cheers, Abel

The NOMOS is not only a recent addition, Abel, it's . . .

 By: Dr No : November 4th, 2023-16:14
. . . unexpected as well. Here's a wrist shot . . . . . . without reflections. Getting ready for the alphabet soup gang's last g-t-g of the year . . . should have a few images up on HoMe later this weekend. Best, Art ...  

Ahh!! Big congrats on this new addition to your collection dear Art!

 By: Subexplorer : November 4th, 2023-16:54
Enjoy so much both this new beauty and the Gtg as well. Beautiful sun setting by the sea background for this new shot of your Nomos! Have a wonderful weekend my dear friend! Abel

What a shot, Art!

 By: KMII : November 4th, 2023-17:59
Looking fantastic - congratulations 🎈🎉🎊

Super cool watch !.. And very “moody” shot with that great sunset !!

 By: hs111 : November 5th, 2023-09:12
Well done and have a great remaining Sunday !! Best, 😊

Will be shooting pool with my pals tonight . . .

 By: Dr No : November 5th, 2023-15:18
. . . and late supper at The Rainbow Bar and Grill. Life is good!

Good wrist shot Art …

 By: Cpt Scarlet : November 5th, 2023-11:56
This Nomos really suits you 👍

A lovely Nomos here, Art!

 By: KMII : November 4th, 2023-17:58
A new addition, together with the toy? 👍🏻👌🏻

My cars get only Kendall GT-1 . . .

 By: Dr No : November 4th, 2023-18:05
. . . and Continental tires.

Great looking Nomos 👍👍😎

 By: jml_watches : November 5th, 2023-08:44

New indeed, Cap . . . in my collection . . .

 By: Dr No : November 5th, 2023-15:16

It certainly looks good 👍

Quite á propos pics, the Tudor & the GS with the orange strap ! Well done !! 😊

Thank you kindly

Both are great but the GS on this strap…

Simply rocks the theme 🦾🎃👌🏻

Glad you like them. Cheers!

 By: Drek : November 4th, 2023-21:29
all had a great Halloween 🎃 Luckily the kids preferred the sweets 😀😀 ...  

Just be careful…

 By: KMII : November 5th, 2023-11:25
That in a year or two the preferences don’t change and you’re left with plenty of sweets but no watch 😂👍🏻


 By: Drek : November 5th, 2023-12:03
Yes I will have to be careful those candy collectors don’t up their expectations too much 😀

Great Halloween shot Drek!!

 By: Subexplorer : November 5th, 2023-13:14
Great trests! I have an special fondness for one of those candies!! 😉 Hagwe! Abel

Thanks Abel

 By: Drek : November 5th, 2023-15:58
there is definitely one tasty treat there, but it could result in a trip to the dentist!

Ha ha ha! True!!

 By: Subexplorer : November 5th, 2023-17:23

Hagwe all!

 By: diracpoint : November 4th, 2023-23:56
One static entry from my side ... 🍻 ...  

What a shot!

 By: KMII : November 5th, 2023-11:26
Was the protagonist just told of how long it would take him to get to the head of the waiting list? 😁👌🏻👍🏻

He he. Good point!

Brilliant!!! . . .

 By: Dr No : November 5th, 2023-17:55
. . . man, wish I'd thought of that. A pity I'm not judging Wrist Shot - you'd get my nod for top spot!

Thanks! Coming to think of it ...

 By: diracpoint : November 5th, 2023-21:59
it does qualify as a "wrist shot", although not my wrist!!! 😄😄😄

very cool.

 By: TheMadDruid : November 6th, 2023-22:11

I am a bit partial…

 By: KMII : November 5th, 2023-11:27
To the Endurance and the shot is great, as expected from you 😁 Not that the other two are not similarly good - and given that it’s not your theme 👌🏻👌🏻👌🏻

I spent the day driving on circuit. The trick is the Porsche in this shot is actually a full size GT4 RS ! … spooky 😉 ...  

Looks like you had a great day at the wheel dear Captain!!

Not into helloween, but still made candy ready for our neighbours kids and they enjoyed it for sure 😎
