The WS for the 10th of March - ‘The watch you will choose for Monday’ - is live

Mar 10, 2023,13:51 PM

As announced, this weekend’s WS theme is, ‘ The watch you will choose for Monday’. After Corona our sartorial habits have partially changed (pants these days optional), so I am hoping for a wide variety of answers of what you all strap on your wrists once the workdays start. 

As usually the thread will run till Sunday evening and there will be a separate thread with judges and verdicts posted subsequently. 

Wishing you a great weekend ahead and looking forward to your entries!

Let me kick off proceedings…

 By: KMII : March 10th, 2023-13:55
As I am currently what in some circles gets called ‘on the beach’, without swimming apparel, my watch choices for Mondays tend to vary widely, from very casual to somewhat more formal. Here some examples: ...  

Love that F.M. :-)

I could wear your Laine for a month . . .

. . . of Mondays, K. 🫠

Too kind 🙏🏻

 By: KMII : March 12th, 2023-08:59
My choices now are a bit greater than usually for Mondays 😉

Monday looks fun dear KM !

 By: Cpt Scarlet : March 11th, 2023-12:43
The “big Frank” looks very cool. Good to have you back ! Best regards Captain

Thanks so much 🙏🏻

 By: KMII : March 12th, 2023-09:00
The Big Frank is actually the smaller of the sizes 😂🤷🏻‍♂️ Anything more wouldn’t have fit my wrist 😉

I love the dial subtle dial colour …

 By: Cpt Scarlet : March 12th, 2023-09:54
Very cool.

So glad you like them!

 By: KMII : March 12th, 2023-09:00
High praise coming from you 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻

Dear KM,

 By: S F : March 12th, 2023-06:42
You start your Mondays strongly! I will be wearing my first Panerai, a 40mm PAM48 followed by another 6 which remain in my collection. It was also my first experience of getting on a waitlist. 😂 Think it was 4-5 months wait. Recently I saw it coming back ...  

40mm PAM?

 By: KMII : March 12th, 2023-09:01
That might even fit my wrist 😂👍🏻 Great piece and wishing you a great workweek ahead and us all waiting lists like that again 😉

To me nothing sounds more « Monday » than…

 By: borisundercover : March 12th, 2023-17:31
An alarm !! That’s what I’ll be wearing tomorrow morning ) ...  

Now that’s a lovely UN ⚓️

 By: KMII : March 12th, 2023-17:34
And wearing an alarm on Monday a lovely symbolic gesture 👌🏻👍🏻⏰

Thx a lot sir 🙏🏻

 By: borisundercover : March 12th, 2023-17:50
A lot of great timepieces for this WS edition, as always !

Welcome Boris to our event! Superb shot, superb watch…

 By: Subexplorer : March 13th, 2023-01:14
… and a great choice to start a week tomorrow Monday!! Cheers! Abel

Hello dear friend KM! Always nice to have you hosting. Great theme. I´m always amazed when viewing how well you match those awesome straps in your collection with clothing and watches...

 By: Subexplorer : March 10th, 2023-15:32
... making for some stunning combos like those you are sharing in your opening post. Your selection is fantastic and the only problem for you will be to decide which ones you´ll finally take on you wrist on Monday among them. I personally would have much ... 

Thanks so much Abel!

 By: KMII : March 10th, 2023-15:38
Too kind as always 🙏🏻 Looking forward to seeing your entries later on 👍🏻🤞🏻

I sm so sorry….

 By: hans_jorgen_1968 : March 10th, 2023-16:58
…. It will probably be one of these again … maybe I should consider selling some of my watches as I tend to go back to just a handful all the time.. Great theme and hagwe Hans Enter text ...  

Well, they seem to do the trick…

 By: KMII : March 10th, 2023-21:07
If you keep on reaching for them 👍🏻 Great pair you chose!

Difficult to choose between them for Monday …

 By: Cpt Scarlet : March 11th, 2023-12:45
Both are great.

Hello dear KM! Here my choices for next Monday…

 By: Subexplorer : March 10th, 2023-19:16
My job at an administrative office doesn’t require formal attire since many decades ago so I can enjoy the pleasure of wearing my favorite diving watches every day. So these two will be ready for the morning and afternoon of next Monday: Tudor Submariner ...  

Wow - your choices don’t disappoint, Abel!

 By: KMII : March 10th, 2023-21:10
The two divers make for great daytime companions, with enough interest to keep you engaged, even if the meeting doesn’t 😉👍🏻 And your evening choice is as timeless as it is versatile 👌🏻👏🏻

Thanks a lot for your kind comments dear KM.

 By: Subexplorer : March 10th, 2023-22:36
I’m happy to know you approve these choices. The 5510 is one of my grails. It makes me smile every time I view or strap it to my wrist. And diving watches are so versatile! Always a practical choice for me. Best cordial regards Abel

Thank you!!

 By: Subexplorer : March 11th, 2023-15:19

Monday looks good dear Abel ….

 By: Cpt Scarlet : March 11th, 2023-12:51
All your choices are very nice. The Tudor Submariner ref 76100 from 1984 is an interesting watch. The characteristic “Lollipop” hour hand is a very nice design detail. Best regards Captain

Thank you so much for your kind comments my dear Captain. Agree with you on the 76100. Though aesthetically I much prefer the classic Mercedes hands I find very interesting...

 By: Subexplorer : March 11th, 2023-15:18
... and also a bit surprising the short lived experiment of Tudor of using this design on their Submariner version. As it happened with the snowflake hands they intended to offer more lume and better reading of time at night or U/W. Always interesting for... 

My Monday job . . .

 By: Dr No : March 11th, 2023-17:26
. . . is playing pool with my pals. We were on hiatus for three months due to our seaside dive bar being closed for repairs, but it's just re-opened yesterday so I'll be back to work Monday night!

My cues get at least half the credit, Abel. They're special . . .

 By: Dr No : March 12th, 2023-05:03
. . . and then some, as pplater can attest ;-) . . .

Ah yes, I have been following your past posts about your cues and well remember that special one connected with our friend pplater. Of course I feel a good cue helps... but the Magic...

 By: Subexplorer : March 12th, 2023-13:04
... is made but the person who uses it. Always amazed to view your videos dear Art. Thanks a lot for sharing! Enjoy so much your Sunday and your Monday session dear friend. Cheers! Abel

Awesome trick shot

 By: hans_jorgen_1968 : March 12th, 2023-06:33

Excellent Monday job…

 By: KMII : March 12th, 2023-09:03
Anything on your wrist during your pool sessions? 😊

Oh, I'm always wearing a watch, K - you'll often see me looking at my wrist . . .

 By: Dr No : March 12th, 2023-17:12
. . . after a memorable shot is made so that Jim can pull the video off the CCTV without having to scan thru hours of video. Yesterday I was wearing the '66 Seiko Sealion. We were playing 'straight 8' for the most part and my game was on fire, winning six...  

You’re talking wet over my head as for the sport…

 By: KMII : March 12th, 2023-17:35
But the watch I can certainly understand and appreciate fully 😊👌🏻👍🏻

Nice shot

 By: Jaccard : March 12th, 2023-21:15

Hello, Abel once again !.. Well taken choices.. Actually I like all three of them, the Rado being my first fav !

 By: hs111 : March 12th, 2023-12:49
The Tudor appears like a well tested workhorse - a really good „GADA“ choice ! - on the Rado I also liked a lot the cute backside, with the „water sealed“ signage.. BTW: what does the little violet round window @12 indicate ? And finally, the last of your... 

Hello my dear friend HS. Thank you so much for your kind viewing and commenting which I always appreciate so much.

 By: Subexplorer : March 12th, 2023-13:00
Glad you like the choices and the little old Rado diver (Captain Cook). Yes, it is a charming early diver from the 1960's and the detail you view at 12 is the Rado emblem: the anchor over a red circle. It is present in all Rado watches. What is amazing is... 

Thx Abel, for the comments !.. All really fine choices !.. Hope it‘s ok to phrase another one little question:..

 By: hs111 : March 12th, 2023-14:44
In your first chosen watch, ie the Tudor 16100, you mention the pecularity of the charming Lollipop Pointer, which you appear to attribute to the HOUR hand (?!). - To me , however it would rather relate to the SECONDS hand, as the real hour hand itself is... 

You are right dear friend HS in that usually the nickname “lollipop” is given…

 By: Subexplorer : March 12th, 2023-18:07
… to the seconds hand of certain Rolex Subs or Explorers. But in this particular reference the name is given to the hour hand which replaces the typical Mercedes hour hand of Submariners. The picture below will illustrate this type. Cheers! Abel ...  

Something suited for underwater discoveries and adventure…

 By: AlexSunrise : March 10th, 2023-19:19
Great weekend to all from the Yucatan Peninsula ...  

Always a pleasure to read you, dear Abel!

 By: AlexSunrise : March 10th, 2023-19:28
I will post more pictures once I download the go pro from the cave diving I took part of. Fuerte abrazo y buen fin de semana, Alex

Now that’s Monday the exciting way 👌🏻

 By: KMII : March 10th, 2023-21:11
And just the watch and strap choices for the occasion 🙌🏻👏🏻

Thank you, KMII! A pleasure to read you!

 By: AlexSunrise : March 10th, 2023-23:16
Have a great weekend, Alex

Wow !.. What an adventure spot and the subsequent shot , which shows a perfect match..

 By: hs111 : March 11th, 2023-10:53
Especially that first pic delivers an exciting mood ! - And the last (with that great BP FF ) is a more „peaceful“ WS.. great photography, really ! - Am already looking forward to your upcoming shots from the cave dive & activity ! HAGWE & Best, hs.

Idyllic photos Alex …

 By: Cpt Scarlet : March 11th, 2023-12:54
Your Blancpain FF looks fabulous in your photos. Thats the way to start the week ! Best regards Captain

Mondays can be rough

 By: Aquaracer1 : March 10th, 2023-19:47
How about a little excitement to start the week: ...  

Your Monday choice should certainly lift the mood

 By: KMII : March 10th, 2023-21:13
So vibrant and radiant, the ALS 🌞👌🏻


 By: Aquaracer1 : March 10th, 2023-21:26

It will be an exciting Monday indeed with this great watch…

 By: Subexplorer : March 10th, 2023-22:39
… strapped to your wrist Aquaracer! Enjoy your weekend so much!! Cheers! Abel

Thank you my friend

 By: Aquaracer1 : March 10th, 2023-23:47
Wish the same to you!

Thanks !

 By: Aquaracer1 : March 11th, 2023-15:03

Great start to the week ….

 By: Cpt Scarlet : March 11th, 2023-12:56
With your Lange, a quality choice.

Thank you Captain!

 By: Aquaracer1 : March 11th, 2023-15:04

🔥🔥🔥 perfect choice

 By: Chronometer (aka yacomino) : March 11th, 2023-17:38


 By: Aquaracer1 : March 11th, 2023-20:18

Thank you!

 By: Aquaracer1 : March 12th, 2023-12:49

Many thanks for hosting KM

 By: Timeout : March 10th, 2023-23:16
Monday’s are casual - optional WFH on Mondays and Fridays - but I’ll be in the office both days. Got the GG classics covered for both days. ...  

Genta for Mondays seems like an inspired choice…

 By: KMII : March 11th, 2023-07:50
Whether in the office or at home - nice shots, too 👌🏻👍🏻

Genta on a Monday ….

 By: Cpt Scarlet : March 11th, 2023-12:58
You can’t go wrong with either of these fabulous choices.

Thanks for a fun theme! This was what I wore on Mon a few days ago

 By: NT931 : March 11th, 2023-00:39
I just love how the light plays on it, especially at certain angles when the subdial looks like it's laser illuminated. Monday blues? Nah, not with this one! ...  

Now that’s a proper blue watch Monday choice 👏🏻👌🏻🙌🏻

 By: KMII : March 11th, 2023-07:51
And the shots you posted are truly sublime 👍🏻

Fabulous choice dear NT !

 By: Cpt Scarlet : March 11th, 2023-13:00
and I love your close up dial shot.

Thanks for the theme: this Monday I’ll wear:

Beautiful choice…

 By: KMII : March 11th, 2023-07:52
And i love the layering with it - great colors, too 👌🏻👍🏻

Wow… Your FN looks beautiful in the sunlight ….

 By: Cpt Scarlet : March 11th, 2023-13:01
Good way to start the week. Best regards Captain

Hmmhh, Team !.. Let me see what to chip in.. ;)

 By: hs111 : March 11th, 2023-10:15
First of all welcome back KMII - glad to have you with us here, safe ! - Very nice pics you entered again; specifically like your straps and textile outfits. - My personal favs are your Chopard, the Laine & the MING.. A very versatile choice, the PP Aquan...  

Hello dear HS …

 By: Cpt Scarlet : March 11th, 2023-13:03
Excellent selection of watches. I always think the Aquanaut works in any situation. Best regards Captain

Thx for your kind looking !..

 By: hs111 : March 11th, 2023-15:30
HAGWE & Best !

Hello dear friend HS!! Looks like you´ll have a very busy early Monday morning trying to decide which one to strap on your wrist among so many beautiful options.

 By: Subexplorer : March 11th, 2023-15:49
Probably you´ll need to start on Sunday evening to think about that! Lol! I guess you will go with your GADA one: Aquanaut!! Do you think I´m right? Well, whichever you decide you can´t go wrong with any of them. There are some favorites of mine there as ... 

Hello, dear friend Abel !.. Thx for again so kind comments

 By: hs111 : March 12th, 2023-08:45
Sorry, I was a bit overdoing it with that number of choices ! - But you might indeed be right, that it might be the trustworthy Aquanaut; you indeed seem to know me quite well !! - Wishing you a great Sunday & a good week to come ! Thx and all my Best !!

Hello again dear HS! By no means you did a bit overdoing! I can well understand you.

 By: Subexplorer : March 12th, 2023-18:31
Having several watches to choose from makes a big dilemma for us to decide. The kind of dilemmas I love to have!! Lol! Of course it’s nice to have the Aquanaut to solve any doubts!! Cheers my dear friend!! Abel

Your choices are as spot on as they are varied!

 By: KMII : March 12th, 2023-09:15
The green small seconds is a real gem - sadly the local AD is a bit useless and wasn’t able to secure one. The Lemania’s are fantastic as always and so are the rest of your choices. I can well understand your decisions, decisions 😁👍🏻

Currently limited in my choices (also close to the beach :-)

 By: Watchonthewrists : March 11th, 2023-12:36
So i have only a few options for Monday HAGWE 🤗 ...  

Monday by the beach sounds good !

 By: Cpt Scarlet : March 11th, 2023-13:08
A Tudor on a rubber strap should be an easy option, but the dial on your FP would make Monday extra special. Best regards Captain

Now that’s a good selection for a Monday on the beach 🏝️

 By: KMII : March 12th, 2023-09:17
Great independent choices as always 🙌🏻👌🏻

Splendid pieces & nifty choices, I trust.. Specifically like the Tudor on rubber, also colorwise.. Never had heard from that Indie Pikullik/Sternenhimmel - cute !

 By: hs111 : March 12th, 2023-13:09
If I were to pick one, especially if for a semi-formal, yet cool activity - I‘d pick this wonderful Daniel Roth WT ! - Well done, Bravo ! Cheers !

You knew . . .

 By: Dr No : March 11th, 2023-17:04
. . . this was coming. ...  

The beast!

 By: Chronometer (aka yacomino) : March 11th, 2023-17:39

Change of plans: the Ultra Deep was on tap for today . . .

 By: Dr No : March 13th, 2023-17:34
. . . but since this vintage Omega . . . [Ω ref 2242, ca '43] . . . has only been on my wrist for one day, I've decided to wear it thru tomorrow. Ultra Deep gets pushed to Wednesday . . . ...  

Perfect choice of music 👍

 By: Cpt Scarlet : March 13th, 2023-10:03
and a personal favourite

Great theme this weekend! Here is a typical Monday combo for me!

 By: Chronometer (aka yacomino) : March 11th, 2023-17:40

CDV . . .

 By: Dr No : March 11th, 2023-18:02
. . . doesn't just stand for . . . . . . 'Coupe DeVille'. ...  

LOL! Good one!

 By: Chronometer (aka yacomino) : March 11th, 2023-18:35

Ha ha ha! True!!

 By: Subexplorer : March 12th, 2023-02:49


 By: Chronometer (aka yacomino) : March 12th, 2023-12:11

The CDV is simply lovely!

 By: KMII : March 12th, 2023-09:18
I like your Mondays already 😁👌🏻👍🏻

Thank you kindly!

 By: Chronometer (aka yacomino) : March 12th, 2023-22:31

A chrono for Mondays

 By: brauner : March 11th, 2023-18:31
Kurono Nivada ...  

Asymmetric hands on the Kurono . . .

 By: Dr No : March 11th, 2023-19:10
. . . are an intriguing touch. Can't recall another watch that mixes and matches hand types. 👍

Ups, you're right. Never saw it.

 By: brauner : March 12th, 2023-06:46
Seems that it didn't bother me. Interesting.

A Kurono Chrono 😁

 By: KMII : March 12th, 2023-09:24
The branding used to be Chrono at the start 😉 Love your car studio and the chrono choices to go with it are spot on 👌🏻🙌🏻 ...  

Great choice

 By: Chronometer (aka yacomino) : March 12th, 2023-00:15

Agree 100% my friend

 By: oyster case : March 12th, 2023-01:47

Definitely a choice for any occasion!

 By: KMII : March 12th, 2023-09:34
Also love the background of the shot 👌🏻👍🏻 asked for it so here goes...

 By: Gregineugene : March 11th, 2023-23:50
I'll be wearing my 8926ob sporting the (seemingly) indestructable Seiko NH35A (unbranded). I've modified the bezel and added a rubber strap and now it's my "Notmaster". I've had this watch for +/-3 years now and regardless of the task...jackhammering, bic...  

That is very true. No worries.

 By: Gregineugene : March 12th, 2023-13:57

What I'm wearing now will start the week

 By: jml_watches : March 12th, 2023-00:23
Been wearing this pair for last few days, they'll see me into next week Pics from this weekend Some previous shots Cheers JML ...  

Wonderful pair, suited to most a Monday could throw at them 👌🏻

 By: KMII : March 12th, 2023-09:37
Curious if I am correct what car is in the background of the opening shot…

You mean this one?

 By: jml_watches : March 12th, 2023-10:53

That’s exactly the one I thought it was 👌🏻👍🏻

 By: KMII : March 12th, 2023-11:11
Don’t you drive a TT on occasion, too?

Not all Monday's are blue …

 By: Cpt Scarlet : March 12th, 2023-00:52
Hello dear friends ! This coming Monday I’m going to see one of my cars that is being prepared for the season ahead and then lunch with an old friend. My choice will be this one … Hope everyone has a good week ahead. Best regards Captain ...  

Thank you dear Abel …

 By: Cpt Scarlet : March 12th, 2023-09:38
Today, I shall prepare by setting the day, date, month and time. I coube a busy day 😉 Best regards Captain

That car in the background definitely looks like the type that would chase away any blues 👌🏻👍🏻

 By: KMII : March 12th, 2023-09:38
Looking forward to seeing some shots of when it’s actually ready 👍🏻👌🏻 And the chosen watch might have a blue dial but no blues whatsoever 🙌🏻👏🏻

Thank you dear KM …

 By: Cpt Scarlet : March 12th, 2023-09:53
I’ll definitely post a few shots at some point in the near future.

Great theme !

 By: Wachnut : March 12th, 2023-05:53
For officewear during the workweek , it’s a reasonably wide range one can get away with . There’s a spectrum of how formal ( or not ) I need to play it that day or week . For instance , if it needs to be more subdued or formal(ish) with external client me...  

Haha thanks

 By: Wachnut : March 12th, 2023-15:20
This represents the choices for several weeks past and present , I rarely change watches mid-week : )

Wonderful choices, all!

 By: KMII : March 12th, 2023-09:39
And I like your eclectic taste - makes for very interesting options 👌🏻👍🏻

Thanks KMII!

 By: Wachnut : March 12th, 2023-15:21
I try and switch them around a bit

Superb Perrelet ….

 By: Cpt Scarlet : March 13th, 2023-10:15
Seldom seen here on WristScan.

Thanks Capn !

 By: Wachnut : March 13th, 2023-15:31
It’s one of my favourites , and not a model you see often in general - I was lucky to snag one a few years back and I don’t think they produce them anymore . They are more famous for their “ turbine “ rotor watches 🙂

It’s a very nice piece …

 By: Cpt Scarlet : March 13th, 2023-16:48
I remember seeing and trying one on at a boutique in Cannes, France approximately ten years ago. I really liked the watch but had my eye on something else at the time. I’m sure you know the feeling 😉

Oh nice !

 By: Wachnut : March 14th, 2023-15:29
Indeed Capn , I very much can empathise with that ( delightful 😬) feeling of confusion over which itch to scratch ! 😂


 By: Jaccard : March 12th, 2023-07:24
Usually start like this: And then, later tomorrow I will be sporting this little one: Wishing all a good Monday and rest of the week. J ...  

What a lovely Montblanc 🙌🏻👌🏻

 By: KMII : March 12th, 2023-09:40
Not seen that often but a wonderful choice! Enjoy your start of the week!


 By: Jaccard : March 13th, 2023-04:16
You too

Mon ➡️ Fri, 50+ weeks of year

 By: KURT_DAVID : March 12th, 2023-10:29
This is what I rely on.. All the very best. Kurt ...  

The way this used to be…

 By: KMII : March 12th, 2023-11:10
With a daily watch for work - and a great choice, too👌🏻👍🏻

Thank you.

 By: KURT_DAVID : March 12th, 2023-14:40

Wow! Thank you!

 By: KURT_DAVID : March 12th, 2023-14:46
That means a lot to me. 😊 Always admiring your posts. It’s the same location, opposite direction. Wrist shot is of the “Dragons Teeth” WW2 landing craft fortifications. Cheers 🍻

Excellent shot Kurt !

Hello KM! As I have to work on Monday l’ll choose a Desk diver.

 By: GDG25 : March 12th, 2023-11:26
So I can remember some nice moments on the beach. As some other participants remarked it will be a blue Monday. ...  

The Desk diver…

 By: KMII : March 12th, 2023-17:32
Thanks so much for your entry - love the expression and concept even if I guess both have lost in popularity since 2020 (not that the watches chosen have). Still a nice memento and a lovely blue dial Superocean 👌🏻👍🏻🤿

Thank you for hosting this event.

 By: GDG25 : March 12th, 2023-18:18
You are right. Haven’t read about desk divers for a long time.
