The WS for the 8th of September - ‘Sports favorite’ - is live
Given that sports watches are the flavor of the decade (and possibly longer) - thanks @Captain for pointing this out - let’s see some of your favorite pieces. Whether the shots involve sports or not very much depends on you.
Looking forward to seeing your shots and wishing you a great weekend ahead 👍🏻

And here some of mine for a start
As I don’t do that much sports seeing action shots would be hard 😉 But I possibly have the only G-Shock on a leather strap to compensate 😁 ...
Also a few seats away from Morgan Fairchild . . .
[MF 1989] . . . at a Stones concert back in '89, and maybe ten seats away from Madonna and Sean Penn at a Pretenders show . . . [SP & M, 1987] . . . in '87. Not to mention right next to Burt Bacharach . . . [BB & CBS, 1984] . . . and Carol Bayer S...
Forgot about this one! . . .
. . . yes, the Great White - a gift from a friend, recently received, and currently at my watchmaker's for its first service. It's not NOS, but close; my friend wore it only a few times since acquiring it twenty years ago. Art ...
Thank you dear KM
Very interesting indeed. Specially having the rattrapante complication.
So it would seem!
Enjoy the match and looking like you have the correct wrist companion on already 👌🏻👍🏻
Dear KM, how about...
some desk diving 😂 Ok, some F1 stuff since it is around the corner here in SG... ...
Thks dear Abel!
As a Doxa fan, I am not surprised of your fondness for my yellow poseidon . The Paneria is PAM140 with a carbon fibre dial. Have a good week ahead!
Nice to see
Fary Lochan on this post 😀. I really enjoy their whiskey’s having randomly stumbled across them first in a kiosk (of all places) in Gråsten.
Maybe we should meet up one day I am actually from Sønderborg Pas på dig selv i Dronning Ingrids dejlige by MVH Hans
Det ku være hyggelig
It’s been a while since I’ve been But I’ve enjoyed many holidays in Gråsten strolling in the woods and gardens as well as many trips to Sonderborg, it’s a lovely part of DK
In my humble opinion on par or better than another great dane.. Stauning.. Best Hans
Love your strap choice to go with it!
For many years the Monaco (in any iteration) was the absolute dream piece for me. Then I cannot say why, when I could easily afford it the fascination never translated into me getting one 🤷🏻♂️ Great, signature piece 🙌🏻👌🏻👏🏻
Hmmhh.. Let me see what to chip in to play
😉😉 Summer sportive impressions.. PAM 1074 Submersible Bronzo/ Titanium backsided, a sportive companion PP 5172, maybe not a pure sports watch but a sportive character – PP 5172 Chronograph, (one of my most fav Summer Chronos this year) A real GADA watch (...
How could one mind 😁👍🏻
A great selection of pieces, HS and true gems there. Would the PP5172 be your current favorite?
Indeed I do!
Technically the Type XX would at least have qualified initially 😊👍🏻
Thx a lot, dear Abel for your kind looking & nice words !
I am glad, that you again liked some of the timepieces, I submitted; I am even more happy, as one another time we both appreciate the types & pieces, that much we both are always happily share, in the sense of „Horo Twins“. - Lol !! 😊😉 As per the PP 5172 ...
Tremendous lineup …
Both Patek watches are superb as is your choice of a Daytona. Perfect for this theme. Best regards Captain
Hello dear KM! Superb choices you share to open…
… this edition of WS with the Sport Watches theme. All beautiful watches and I specially love the Memovox compressor case which I would like so much to have in my own collection. Though I have never been a sportsman myself I have been very fond with sport...
When you say never a sportsman…
Weren’t you a passionate diver? At least that’s what my memory tells me. Great shots as always and I have to say the water shot of the MM is my favorite of yours this weekend 😊👍🏻👌🏻
So my memory is not all faded 😁
I fully understand the behind a computer type of sport you speak of. Will definitely need to change that at some point though 😊👍🏻
Sporting intentions :-) …
Hello dear KMII and friends ! Sports watches are a phenomenon of our time and these are a few of my personal favourites … The instantly recognisable Monaco … The Daytona is the sports watch personified … How could I forget the Doxa ! … Designed specifical...
Hello my dear friend …
Indeed, this really is a phenomenon of our time. From memory, it all started on the late 80’s and early 90’s. Suddenly people started wearing more sports watches as apposed to dress watches as a daily routine. My Doxa photo is with some of my Scubapro equ...
Nice selection Captain!
Some real classics and heavyweights you show this weekend 👌🏻👍🏻 Btw. is that a steering wheel behind the Doxa?
Thank you 🙏…
The Doxa photo is with some of my Scubapro diving equipment. A sporting shot for you, with a steering wheel in the background and the 321 Speedmaster. Best regards Captain ...
Have seen that Abel identified the logo 😊 The steering wheel shot is spot on as always 👏🏻👌🏻👍🏻
The Alpine Eagle HF is a sublime piece - what color dial version is it? And lovely to see the Ebel - an iconic piece 👌🏻👍🏻
Very cool indeed!
The HF is a piece I am pretty interested in (just need to find a strap maker that will allow me to replace the bracelet 😉) 👍🏻
I believe that…
But almost all of my watches end up on a strap sooner or later 😂🤷🏻♂️
Sport’s Favourite! Great theme KM.
No! I don’t row with a stopwatch strapped to my oar 😆 just having some fun. Is dog walking a sport?? I think it should be😀 A couple from a few days ago. Love that Cyclops.. A bit of distortion.. Thanks for hosting KM and a great weekend to all. 🍻 ...
Thank you KM.
I would have loved to have had the water photos for a previous Wristscan but the weather had other ideas. 🍻
It was was actually a bit of fun aimed at my fellow rowers as they all have fancy fitness/heart monitoring smart watches and they’re constantly checking on the go. I’m the only one without one. Have a great week.
I also refuse to wear one of the constant monitoring devices 😁
Great theme KMII
I love the flexibility of the concept of a sports watch , and that there aren’t very strict criteria on what qualifies ( unlike say a dress watch ) . From divers to chronos to various colourful or just funky pieces , ( just about ! ) anything goes 😄 Here’...
It’s one of my favourites as well 😊
