The WS for the 10th of June - ‘It’s complicated - your favorite complication’ - is live

Jun 10, 2022,15:41 PM
 

Sometimes we like them simple, sometimes complex. So the theme this week is your favorite complication(s) or your favorite complication combination. 


I will post mine in a separate post imminently and in the meantime I am very much looking forward to yours!

The theme will run till 17.00 GMT on Sunday as usually and the judges and verdicts will be announced in a separate post, as Avon usually 😊

Enjoy the weekend and may it be a simple one, if your wrist companion will be complicated!

Good chrono choices ! …

I love the variety.

Cannot fault your choices 😁

 
 By: KMII : June 10th, 2022-20:21
Chronographs we’re the complication that finally got me into this hobby and onto WPS now more than 8 years ago 😊 And some truly cool choices you have made and posted 🙌🏻👌🏻👏🏻

The backside chrono retrograde!

This has to be one of the most underrated, superb watches

 
 By: KMII : June 10th, 2022-20:22
Reminding me to look for one myself 😉 Fantastic shot, too 👌🏻

Thanks!

 
 By: Filip : June 12th, 2022-10:14

Indeed!

 
 By: Filip : June 12th, 2022-10:14

Good wrist shot !

 
 By: Cpt Scarlet : June 12th, 2022-09:33

Thank you!

A most interesting Theme which I’m sure will bring…

 
 By: Subexplorer : June 10th, 2022-19:53
… some awesome shots/watches from the participants! My favorite complications are: 1) Chronographs 2) Moon phase 3) World Timer Here a few favorites of my collection below. Have a great weekend my dear friend KM!! Cheers! Abel Breguet 3800 Aeronavale Spee...  

An epic entry my friend…

 
 By: KMII : June 10th, 2022-20:24
Of the kind we have come to expect from you 👏🏻 And while your collection is strong in every area, the chronographs appear to be a tad stronger still 😊 And wasn’t aware you also had the P15 👏🏻👍🏻

Thank you so much for your kind comments dear KM!!

 
 By: Subexplorer : June 11th, 2022-03:32
I began my collecting journey with chronographs which I find they are fascinating watches. Yes I got the P15 which I deeply love. Hagwe my dear friend! Abel

Likewise to you my friend 👍🏻

 
 By: KMII : June 11th, 2022-09:28
And I also joined in with a P15 😁

Thank you dear KM. Great to share with you…

 
 By: Subexplorer : June 11th, 2022-14:23
… our beloved P15!! Cheers! Abel

When scrolling your collection

Your Longines is amazing. So pure, so real horology. Not to ignore the fabulous Omega AT world timer. Did i see a fabulous Speedy? yes. great chronograph.

I know

 
 By: Weems@8 : June 13th, 2022-18:40
Good that there is difference. Speedmasters are for me not as special like Seamasters. But i have a few favorite Speedmasters that should be great if i can enrich my watch collection with. The new Snoopy anniversary Speedmaster is my number 1. A golden Sp...

A good reason to expand my collection with Seamasters

 
 By: Weems@8 : June 14th, 2022-10:09
I am happy a Seamaster do not touched the moon. Lucky me Speedmasters are not my choice. But the CK859 is popular, so i guess i can not get my hands on that watch anymore.

During the War, this was known as . . .

Thank you so much dear Jml!

 
 By: Subexplorer : June 11th, 2022-03:35
That plane shot was taken at the amusement park at the top of Tibidabo Mount in Barcelona. I enjoyed riding it with my grandchildren a couple of years ago. It doesn’t really fly but it’s very enjoyable anyway . Glad you liked the shot! Hagwe! Abel

Hello Abel !.. As expected for this topic, You did it again !.. Great selection of different complications and indications !.. As previously nice to see, we share some Refs. ,

 
 By: hs111 : June 11th, 2022-11:17
.. such as the JLC Geophysic Universal Time & PP 5510G, the Zenith Cronometro CP-2, just to name these three.. for this time; but there are several others, as we both know meanwhile, which underlines in a nice way similiar tastes & interests. - Re... 

Thank you so much dear friend HS for your always so kind comments. Once again we can view several watches we both own confirming the similarity in tastes and interests as you...

 
 By: Subexplorer : June 11th, 2022-15:04
... well say. Let me say that in spite I deeply love my modern Breguet Type 20 Aeronavale, it´s far from the beauty and attractive of your vintage chrono. What a piece!! I´m always happy to know you like my choices even if I can´t refrain from posting too... 

A strong cast of WT and Chronos...

 
 By: S F : June 11th, 2022-14:48
Your Omega Cosmic and 6238 are my fav! Have a restful weekend dear Abel!

Tremendous choices …

 
 By: Cpt Scarlet : June 12th, 2022-09:35
Everyone has something special going for it. I particularly love the 6238 Pre Daytona, beautiful !

Fantastic shot from the side of your 6238, dear Abel!

 
 By: COUNT DE MONET : June 12th, 2022-12:44
All entries are top and it is hard to pick one only. If I had to, then it would be your lovely VC chrono, which is an absolute stunning watch!

Great theme my friend .

 
 By: Watchonthewrist : June 10th, 2022-20:00
I do like a nice or amazing complication. Lets give a few examples Regulator Moon face Wondering hours Jumping hours Retrograde Tourbillon Remontoire And some Crazy Hours 🤪 Hagwe my friends 🤗 ...  

This was bound to be your theme 😊👍🏻

 
 By: KMII : June 10th, 2022-20:26
If there is one thing you are famous for apart from independents, it has to be complications - and in many cases the two go truly hand in hand 👌🏻 Epic shots, all, but the VH Regulator is my favorite of yours this weekend 👏🏻👏🏻🙏🏻

Superb line-up of sublime & outstanding pieces !.. Chapeau !!

 
 By: hs111 : June 11th, 2022-11:22
Love the Remontoire and that lovely VH Regulator ! Bravo !! - Cheers !!

What an amazing entry! Hats off!

 
 By: Geo : June 12th, 2022-06:59
I love them all. GEO

Excellent choices…

 
 By: Cpt Scarlet : June 12th, 2022-09:36
The Remontoire is superb.

Interesting

 
 By: Weems@8 : June 10th, 2022-20:25
While i have no favorite, i’m on to discover what will be my choice. I collect more on how a watch has build. The material, the crown shape, glass bends, lug shape and form. Useful complication is the gmt and perpetual calendar i collect specific a watch ...  

A great GMT piece…

 
 By: KMII : June 10th, 2022-20:31
And superbly accurate, too! Looking forward to finding out where your journey will take you 😊🤞🏻

Smart watch

 
 By: Weems@8 : June 11th, 2022-03:19
It is my watch i use to set my mechanical watches right when i wound them. The idea to skip a computer for setting my watches is adjust a watch with a watch. The GMT hand gives my Conquest a playful touch. A Smart watch with real hands, better than a disp... 

Reserving judgement or sounding off

 
 By: jml_watches : June 10th, 2022-20:50
Well think you can have both - so not unexpectedly here's a few alarms, although I think I probably preempted myself with an earlier post on Home . Though, there is a second complication I'm rather struck by - power reserve, especially with a splash of re...  

While the alarms were all but certain…

 
 By: KMII : June 10th, 2022-21:04
The red dash PRs are a bit of a surprise 😁 Two great complications, certainly and a raft of superb shots, too 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻

Cheers 😊

 
 By: jml_watches : June 10th, 2022-21:57

I agree with you about the power reserve …

 
 By: Cpt Scarlet : June 12th, 2022-09:38
Underrated and very useful.

Although I have to say…

 
 By: KMII : June 12th, 2022-10:34
I actually prefer them at the back of the watch 😉👍🏻

Better late than never…

 
 By: KMII : June 10th, 2022-21:03
So here are some of my favorites… When it comes to complications it’s simple for me - chronographs come top. While I love my watches time only (let’s call that the non-complication) and have many collecting themes (hi-beat, ultra thin…), chronographs do i...  

Those Habring - stunning 😎

 
 By: jml_watches : June 10th, 2022-22:00

Thanks so much…

 
 By: KMII : June 11th, 2022-09:30
We had them made with custom dials for our wedding anniversary (no prizes for guessing which one) 😉 The beauty of independents is that even regular people get to express wishes 😁

Dear K !.. So well done !.. Your various Chrono- close-ups are awesome and also eclectic to a certain degree.

 
 By: hs111 : June 11th, 2022-11:44
My personal favs are the Seiko with the pink indices, the Seiko SpringDrive and of course the Habrings, a love for their dedicated watchmakers‘ skill & pleasure towards what they create. HAGWE &

Thanks so much for your appreciation!

 
 By: KMII : June 11th, 2022-18:07
The chronographs are eclectic indeed 😊 As for the Habrings, they are as lovely to spend time with as their watches 😊👍🏻

Hello dear friend KM! So nice to share with you the fascination for chronographs. You share a superb collection of examples of this most interesting and practical complication which...

 
 By: Subexplorer : June 11th, 2022-15:13
... allows for some playing or interaction with our watches which I feel so nice to have on my wrist. As usual you show your watches with some stunning and great taste combos of straps which makes a delight to view. Great Theme you choose! Thank you so mu... 

Thanks so much Abel!

 
 By: KMII : June 11th, 2022-18:08
It is a complication I have always been fascinated by and I felt a small selection would be in order. Glad you like them 😊

Beautiful Habring…

 
 By: Cpt Scarlet : June 12th, 2022-09:39
I love them !

My favorite complications are GMT and Worldtimer.

 
 By: Sfwatchlover : June 11th, 2022-04:48
An excellent GMT imo is the Tudor “Pepsi” BB GMT. It was my companion on a few vacations and daily wear for some time. My older son loved it so I gave it to him last year as a graduation gift. Here is a wrist-shot with my son taken today. KM and everyone ...  

Now that’s quite a pair 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻

 
 By: KMII : June 11th, 2022-09:33
And a very nice GMT complication there 👌🏻

Thanks a lot, KM!

 
 By: Sfwatchlover : June 11th, 2022-19:36

I am more into time-only watches

 
 By: Geo : June 11th, 2022-06:23
but my Ressence Type 2 should qualify, or do we see it as a time-only? ...  

This one definitely qualifies 👏🏻

 
 By: KMII : June 11th, 2022-09:31
Such a novel way of displaying time and so well executed, too 👌🏻

Thank you!

 
 By: Geo : June 12th, 2022-07:01

This one definitely qualifies …

 
 By: Cpt Scarlet : June 12th, 2022-09:40
Superb choice Geo.

Simple, like the owner.

 
 By: Andy_Mac : June 11th, 2022-08:09
HAGWE Wakey Wakey Big Date 💪 ...  

The right way to do a date

 
 By: KMII : June 11th, 2022-09:32
And certainly a wonderful, if alarming other entry 😉 Love your style of adding complications in an understated way 👏🏻

Thanks for the kind words

 
 By: Andy_Mac : June 11th, 2022-11:48
…and for running this weekends WristScan. Appreciated 🙏👊🍻

I try 😊🙏🏻

 
 By: KMII : June 12th, 2022-09:14

Really like that Memovox 🙂

 
 By: jml_watches : June 11th, 2022-11:57

Thanks JML

 
 By: Andy_Mac : June 11th, 2022-14:46
…me too. Nice size, wears well 👊

Only split second chrono of this kind from all Purits here ...

 
 By: COUNT DE MONET : June 11th, 2022-10:20
... my Edo Index-Mobile watch: Prof. Schaldenbrand added only nine or so parts to a mundane Landeron chrono caliber and made it to a split second. This coil on the dial attached to a chrono hand, next to some parts of the movement, makes it a spli second ...  

OK - this is one to go under the amazing category

 
 By: KMII : June 11th, 2022-10:31
With so few parts and some on dial side? Fabulous and ingenious 👍🏻👏🏻 And the name is sublime 👌🏻 Thanks for the kind words, too!

Wow dear Count! An amazing chrono you are sharing here! It´s an ingenious way of adding the interesting split complication to the Landeron movement with so few pieces.

 
 By: Subexplorer : June 11th, 2022-15:17
Awesome feature the extra spring on dial side! I love chronos as I have stated before and split seconds ones are more fascinating yet! Thank you so much for sharing my dear friend Moritz! Hagwe! Abel

Yes, it is also a very inexpensive way to own a ss chrono.

 
 By: COUNT DE MONET : June 11th, 2022-18:42
The "only" inconvenience is that you have to press the pusher in the crown all the time, inorder to halt the ss hand. If you come off from the pusher, the spring will make the ss hand catch up with the other hand again. I am pleased you like the watch dea... 

Very cool …

 
 By: Cpt Scarlet : June 12th, 2022-09:41
and an interesting choice, well played !

Thank you, dear Captain 🥃🥃

 
 By: COUNT DE MONET : June 12th, 2022-12:21

Hmmhh.. Let me see what to chip in to play this time..

 
 By: hs111 : June 11th, 2022-10:29
My humble personal complication/ indication is the „Alarm on Arm“: - JLC Memovox A partial view into the Memovox watchbox: Middle: From left: E 855 black & 855 white („Ebene dial); E 875 blue/blue, white/blue & all white/silver Far right: E 861 Top (cross...  

This is quite the selection of complications, HS 👍🏻

 
 By: KMII : June 11th, 2022-10:42
And it’s hard to choose a favorite, with so many sublime pieces offered. By a small margin I would say your Duometre tugs at the heartstrings most this weekend though. Enjoy the weekend and glad you could join!

Within the current possibilities…

 
 By: KMII : June 11th, 2022-18:09
So all healthy and together - as for really well, that will take a while I guess 😊🤷🏻‍♂️

Great selection of Memovoxes 👍

 
 By: jml_watches : June 11th, 2022-10:43
Shows the variety of a single complication by just one brand. Cheers JML

dear hs, what a collection of memovox!

 
 By: S F : June 11th, 2022-14:37
I really like the warmth of your charming JLC triple cal and Breguet Type XX!

Hello dear friend HS!! I love your definition of "humble" when sharing your stunning collection of JLC Alarm watches!! Just awesome!

 
 By: Subexplorer : June 11th, 2022-15:22
As in other opportunities you are sharing watches I also own, and some I would Love to own! Lol! You always keep me drooling when viewing your vintage Breguet chrono, and your JLC Durometre chronographe. Superb!! You make very difficult to make a choice o... 

Thx again so much, dear friend !

 
 By: hs111 : June 12th, 2022-06:50
All the Best !!

Here’s some variations on a theme!

 
 By: Timeout : June 11th, 2022-15:45
Perpetual Calendars Chronographs GMTs ...  

Now that’s quite the selection…

 
 By: KMII : June 11th, 2022-18:10
With some surprising specimen for the various complications - and what pieces! The KV would probably be my favorite but all strong entries here 👌🏻👏🏻🙌🏻

For someone who does not even adjust the date....

 
 By: S F : June 11th, 2022-15:57
any complication requiring multiple adjustments is just too burdensome for me...😂 The most complicated in terms of mechanism in my collection but requiring nothing more complicated than winding....... ...  

The Freak is…

 
 By: KMII : June 11th, 2022-18:11
Freakishly good - and what an epic shot 👌🏻👌🏻👌🏻

Ok this might sound weird but my favorite complication is anything that has to do with rate accuracy! From a well regulated organ like in my Lange Up/down or even my VC traditionnelle…

 
 By: Chronometer (aka yacomino) : June 11th, 2022-16:58
But I know so far these two examples are not the most sexy to look at! Then there is a tourbillon which I don’t yet have….a great example of these is the remontoire watch from the brothers which I include a picture from Ed our fellow member here… a timeli...  

Nomen est omen 😊

 
 By: KMII : June 11th, 2022-18:12
And two great shots to go with it! I can certainly understand the fascination with chronometry, it’s what watches should be about. Or used to be 😂

It certainly gets me going! 😎

 
 By: Chronometer (aka yacomino) : June 11th, 2022-22:47

Complicated choices …

 
 By: Cpt Scarlet : June 11th, 2022-22:02
Hello dear KM and friends ! Hope everyone is enjoying the weekend. I’m going to start with the Patek Philippe Flyback chronograph with Annual Calendar as I love this combination … The power reserve is often overlooked but very useful in a manually wound w...  

Great choices dear Captain! The Patek sublime. You are right that the indication of power reserve is a charming and useful complication to have. I like this feature so much...

 
 By: Subexplorer : June 11th, 2022-23:24
... and regarding the X33... I agree that it´s needed some Astronaut´s training to make use of all the many features it offers!! Lol! Have a nice weekend my dear friend! Cheers! Abel

Thank you dear friend …

 
 By: Cpt Scarlet : June 12th, 2022-09:01
I’m still in training with the X-33 ! True story… last night I suddenly remembered that I had forgotten about “The Snoopy”, how could I forget this fun complication ! Best regards Captain ...  

It was good fun taking the shot …

 
 By: Cpt Scarlet : June 12th, 2022-09:32
Many thanks for your kind message.

Thank you HS …

 
 By: Cpt Scarlet : June 12th, 2022-09:04
Hope you are enjoying your weekend.

That final shot is pure genius with the composition 👌🏻👍🏻

 
 By: KMII : June 12th, 2022-09:17
Great pieces and complications - and as you have mentioned with the PR, they don’t need to be fancy to be useful or cool 👍🏻

Thank you 🙏

 
 By: Cpt Scarlet : June 13th, 2022-21:39

That Omega X-33 sings to me very much!

 
 By: COUNT DE MONET : June 12th, 2022-12:24
A great multiple function watcht 👍.

It's Complicated and I couldn't help myself

 
 By: cazalea : June 11th, 2022-22:23
Titanium and Chronographs and Tools and Water Resistance go together in my mind. But I can't choose just one! PS - I had to take out the revolving gif image -- having that running 7/24 365 would use more energy than mining bitcoins! Cazalea ...  

Hello dear Mike! It seems that chronographs is one of the most popular complications among us. Of course water resistance is a very important characteristic to have in any watch.

 
 By: Subexplorer : June 11th, 2022-23:31
Great effect on your first shot!! Looks like magic!! I love the space looking Seiko so much. Very interesting chronos you are sharing here! Hagwe! Abel

Hi Mike ! …

 
 By: Cpt Scarlet : June 12th, 2022-09:06
Just spotted your first photo when I woke up this morning, I thought that I’d had one to many last night !…. Good shot. Best regards Captain

I would be a little shocked if there was a single category where you could choose just one 😁😂

 
 By: KMII : June 12th, 2022-09:20
The combination of titanium, chrono and WR gets me going every time as well 👍🏻👌🏻 It at least brings me back to the times when the improvement of the species was somehow seen as more important than a new dial color 😊🤷🏻‍♂️

The only complication that motivated yours truly . . .

 
 By: Dr No : June 12th, 2022-03:51
. . . is the perpetual calendar. So much, though, that I acquired four. Tracking the movement of the Earth around the Sun mechanically in a device compact enough to be worn on one's wrist . . . simply sublime, as Nicolas would say. For years these were my...  

Interesting to hear your journey with these beautiful watches …

 
 By: Cpt Scarlet : June 12th, 2022-09:10
Your new 321 Speedmaster is the way to go.

As you do well put…

 
 By: KMII : June 12th, 2022-09:23
The preferences change during life. I most like time only watches these days, too but the theme went for complications. And I guess I am not the only one who has rarely, if ever, used the chronographs for their intended purpose 😉😂🤷🏻‍♂️

Hello dear Art! Agree with your feelings about Perpetual Calendars. They are awesome little marvels which can be worn on the wrist. Interesting to know your journey with yours.

 
 By: Subexplorer : June 12th, 2022-16:00
Nice you can see two of them in the wrist of your friend. I still need to find a PC for my collection. Cheers!, Abel
