The WS for the 7th of January 2022 - ‘(Culinary) Travel’ is live

Jan 07, 2022,12:28 PM

As mentioned a bit earlier today the theme for this weekend’s WS is ‘(Culinary) Travel’. We’ve more or less all been missing the freedom to travel of old and I suppose most of us are looking forward to an ease of restrictions and to a resumption of travel. So whatever the watches might be you like to take when traveling or bringing back from travels is right. And as we generally enjoy a bite or two to eat, as a special category - if you so wish - what food you would go for while traveling. 

The judging will take place after 1700 GMT on Sunday as usually. 

So looking forward to seeing many tasty entries and wishing you a great first weekend of the new year!

Here some of mine…

The location is one of the capitals of truffles and the food is that way focused 😋

As for watches, I guess a GMT complication is always helpful…

Alarms are helpful, especially if there’s a time zone change involved…

Sometimes a proper water resistance helps, as does a certain amount of stealth 🥷🏻 

And then there are times, when it’s not that important to know the time down to the last minute…

Country and food both. Great shot, integrating the watch into it 👌🏻🙌🏻👏🏻

Hello dear KM! So nice to have you hosting and a very tasty Theme you choose. You have set the bar so high with your plate shots and those fabulous photographs of your wonderful travel watches.

 By: Subexplorer : January 7th, 2022-15:53
I will return later with my participating shots. Though I´m not a gourmet myself I can always find joy with a nice meal when I travel and of course a watch is always carefuly chosen depending the place or places I intend to visit. Best cordial regards, Ab... 

Looking forward to seeing …

 By: Cpt Scarlet : January 7th, 2022-16:00

There’s joy in food at all levels 😊

 By: KMII : January 7th, 2022-18:28
I am hardly a connoisseur myself but enjoy being fed properly 😋 Looking forward to your shots 👌🏻👍🏻

Thanks K. for a great theme this week! Eating is indeed one the pleasures of life, and especially now that traveling is (in certain areas of the world, and timidly!) resuming, it looks like a perfect thread right after the Christmas break! :-)

 By: FabR : January 7th, 2022-16:05
When my girlfriend and I visit a new place, we usually like to try one of the good local since this was her first time back in Italy after two years (I obviously skipped 2020 but went back last summer while she stayed in the US), what bet...  

Dining in considerable style ! …

 By: Cpt Scarlet : January 7th, 2022-16:41
Good food, good wine and friendship. That’s the perfect combo Fab 🥂

I couldn’t agree more 🥂

Your new Rolex looks great 👍

 By: Cpt Scarlet : January 7th, 2022-18:30

The food makes me (your chosen dial color) with envy 😂

 By: KMII : January 7th, 2022-18:29
Looking thoroughly delightful 😋😋😋

That OP(s) really completes that night.

 By: KCLQMULKU : January 7th, 2022-20:20
Fantastic cuisine, and looks to have been such a wonderful dinner! Thank you for sharing!

Great shots dear Fab! I´m happy to view that you and your girlfriend are enjoying so much your recent arrived OP´s. Italy offers so many wonderful places to enjoy and to where to have...

 By: Subexplorer : January 8th, 2022-16:13
... excellent meals. Good eating is almost a cult. What a wonderful Country! I wish we will be able to travel safely again soon! Cheers! Abel

You’re always allowed to present a second serving…

 By: KMII : January 9th, 2022-07:34
Especially if it’s as delicious as this - truly an epic watch 👌🏻👏🏻🙌🏻

OMG 😱 👍🍾🥂

 By: Cpt Scarlet : January 9th, 2022-17:59

Had I not just had an extensive brunch…

 By: KMII : January 8th, 2022-11:12
Looking truly delicious 😋

The food looks very interesting and delicious

 By: Jaccard : January 9th, 2022-12:23
The 5146G (?) is still looking great.

Thank you! Yes, the 5146G, though sadly this photo was just before the first Covid lockdown.

 By: KCLQMULKU : January 9th, 2022-17:07
Will certainly post newer restaurant photos when I get a chance, and with a much better wrist shot.

Some of mine a pre-covid as well

 By: Jaccard : January 9th, 2022-18:34
Thank you for your comment. I agree that a family that eats together bonds well.

Thank you Abel!

 By: KCLQMULKU : January 8th, 2022-21:02
Apologies as was looking for a good shot of both food and a watch, and this was the best I could find. May need to create some better shots this year.


 By: Subexplorer : January 9th, 2022-14:46

Enjoying the cuisine en route…

 By: Cpt Scarlet : January 7th, 2022-23:14
Hello dear friends, Finding the best local cuisine is all part of the adventure. Starting with Black rice and seafood… Fresh sardines and chilled wine for lunch … More seafood with fideua … The grilled prawns … Fresh fish, always delicious if you are near...  

I am a man of simple tastes…

 By: KMII : January 8th, 2022-11:13
So the sardines and the little piglet for me 😁 What a delicious selection 👌🏻🙌🏻

Thank you 🙏 …

 By: Cpt Scarlet : January 8th, 2022-11:46
Hope you can share a photo of your lunch today 😉


 By: KMII : January 9th, 2022-07:36
The couple of bottles of wine made me forget all about it 🤦🏻‍♂️


 By: Cpt Scarlet : January 9th, 2022-10:57

Like our dear KM I´m also a man of simple tastes... you know dear Captain!! The sardines, the fish and the Iberico Cinco Jotas would make me a very happy man! Lol!

 By: Subexplorer : January 8th, 2022-19:34
Not to mention the Doxa and the Moonshine as you well know! Delicious shots! Cheers! Abel


 By: Subexplorer : January 9th, 2022-14:44

We have similar tastes 😉

 By: Cpt Scarlet : January 9th, 2022-10:58

Ahh! Yes!! ;)

That looks delicious indeed 👌🏻

As does the Omega 👏🏻👍🏻

The pleasure of an open fireplace and some marshmallows

Hello dear KM! Let me play with a few shots!

As I said before enjoying tasty and different meals are part of the enjoyment of travels and though I’m not a true gourmet I take advantage of traveling to have the pleasure of tasting food. Those meals make part of the fond memories we keep of past trave...  

Gourmet travel ….

 By: Cpt Scarlet : January 8th, 2022-13:10
Food and friends are the essence of life. Hopefully we will be able to resume this at some point in the near future. As for what’s on your your parrilla… it looks delicious and the perfect wrist shot 🥂

Thank you so much dear Captain!! I wish things will come back to a more "normal life" as we knew before this nightmare of pandemia soon! Agree with you that friends and food are...

 By: Subexplorer : January 8th, 2022-15:51
... the essence of life!! I wish some day you´ll visit our Country and we will try some great parrillas here! Thank you for your kind compliments! Cheers! Abel

This takes it to another level, Abel!

 By: KMII : January 8th, 2022-16:52
The variety and quality of food and paired watches is truly exquisite. Hopefully we will find an opportunity to bread soon 👍🏻🤞🏻

Yes! Crossing fingers here too!

What a burst of color and flavor, dear KMII!

Mine was a omi beef steak dinner on a trip to Shiga, Japan with the family🥂. ...  

Thk you Abel!

 By: S F : January 9th, 2022-05:45
Omi beef is a specialty in Shiga but nothing beats the GMTM!

Ok, this truly has me salivating 😋

 By: KMII : January 8th, 2022-17:00
Those steaks look mind boggling 👌🏻👌🏻👌🏻

Can hardly wait for the entree 👍🏻

 By: KMII : January 8th, 2022-17:01
And the shot already posted now is very suggestive 😉👍🏻👌🏻

That’s the Wurst shot …

I drove this morning to Belgium to pick up this Tudor. More pictures will follow later. ...  

A drive, a meal and a watch…

 By: KMII : January 8th, 2022-17:04
Sounds like my kind of day! Congratulations on the new Tudor, too 👏🏻🙌🏻👌🏻

Good looking Tudor …

Well played 👍

Thank you Cpt.

Do watches matter when food is on the table?

I'm not sure they do! Check the eyes on my two suspects below: I'll be back later with a real entry. Cazalea ...

I am wondering about your other dishes that you might come back with later now 😋🤞🏻🤞🏻🤞🏻

Not traveling much at all lately . . .

It is a superb watch indeed 👌🏻👏🏻🙌🏻

 By: KMII : January 9th, 2022-07:41
And that omelette (sans tomatos for me) looks like just the ticket to start the day 😋😋😋

Healthy omelette 👍…

 By: Cpt Scarlet : January 9th, 2022-11:07
But I would love to hear more about your new Grand Seiko

If I had to start from scratch, Cap, and own just one watch for the rest of my life . . .

 By: Dr No : January 9th, 2022-18:20
. . . it would be this very GS. Excellent performer, watertight, calendar function, neutral aesthetics finished with exquisite precision . . . what more could one ask for? You might recall it was a spur-of-the-moment acquisition; I didn't even know of its... 

I remember ..

 By: Cpt Scarlet : January 9th, 2022-20:25
It being a spur-of-the-moment acquisition, but it’s interesting to hear how you have enjoyed the watch and your thoughts on it 🙏

Vintage Omega appeals emotionally while GS . . .

 By: Dr No : January 9th, 2022-21:25
. . . satisfies objectively. As Nicolas would say, "Have both!"

Yes but …

 By: Cpt Scarlet : January 9th, 2022-21:56
Does he have either 🤭

Does Nicolas love vintage Omegas? Most definitely! . . .

 By: Dr No : January 9th, 2022-22:58
. . . but I've never seen Nicolas post a Seiko, much less a GS, that I can remember. Personally, it's a left brain / right brain issue. My practical side embraces GS, while my emotional side feasts on vintage Omega. I can justify having both to satisfy mu... 

I couldn’t remember…

 By: Cpt Scarlet : January 10th, 2022-10:15
If he had a Grand Seiko or a Speedmaster. Two for the list. You summed it up perfectly with the practical and emotional consideration.

It's difficult to match Grand Seiko as a value proposition . . .

 By: Dr No : January 9th, 2022-18:27
. . . and impossible to beat. As attached I am to my vintage Omegas, this would be my everyday watch if I could have just one. Art ...

and the last shot is superb 🤩 Well played !

Hi Bill …

 By: Cpt Scarlet : January 9th, 2022-12:11
Delicious seafood and a Zenith Daytona, perfect ! Thanks for joining us for WristScan this weekend.

Great shots dear Bill! Nice friends and good watches together with superb watches are the best combination. Though the face of that little lobster on your picture seems not to agree! Lol!

 By: Subexplorer : January 9th, 2022-14:42
PS: I´m specially fond of cheese and your pictures makes me drool at just viewing it!! Have a nice week ahead Bill! Cheers! Abel

Tea and cake …

Worth staying in for 😋

Definitely :)

 By: jml_watches : January 9th, 2022-13:14
I think a large number of people think that's what the National Trust is for. Cafes serving tea and cake with incidentally an old house or castle attached. Cheers JML

Tasty deserts…

 By: KMII : January 9th, 2022-17:25
And a wise message in the end 👌🏻 The Bellmatic is a great choice, too 👍🏻

Thanks :)

The steel version is equally wonderful. It’s a great watch in all metals. I wear mine regularly.
