Theme for February 1st WRIST SCAN will be: “NEVER SAY NEVER AGAIN!”

Jan 30, 2019,06:40 AM

Hello friends! Mr. Bond brings the famous phrase and title of one of his films inviting us to remember how many times we have pronounced the word “Never” during our long journey as watch lovers and collectors.

Let me explain with my own experience: I pronounced that word in at least three or four occasions. Will tell you about two of them here.

One while visiting an Omega AD. I was offered a new version of a Speedmaster and I said, “No thanks, this is not for me, I will never buy this one” (yes, it is now one of my favorite Speedies!)

Another was while talking with a colleague in passion about certain vintage Rolex and I resolutely declared:   “I will never spend that kind of money in this watch! Never!” (Yes, another favorite in my collection now) (Guess I need to learn to keep my mouth shut! Lol!)

Well, I´m sure you got the picture. Join us with your pictures and stories around that watch you “Never” expected to buy but today is your joy and pride.

Tell us (and show its picture) about the watch you “never” thought one day you would enjoy on your wrist or you have declared you would never buy.

Tell us about the occasions you pronounced the word “Never!” regarding a timepiece.

As usual I will be starting the thread tomorrow Thursday at around midnight Singapore time.

Cheers! Abel

... your post! I’m sure most of our members will remember saying “never” in at least an occasion... or owning a watch they hadn’t thought they would own before. Thank you dear Art! All the best! Abel

Tough one, but...

...thinking about it I remember at least two occasions when I told that I never, NEVER would buy this very special watch. We‘ll see 😉👍🏻

Thank you so much for your input JLCman! I guess it looks tough first but when we think back in our experiences we will find the occasion...

... in which we thought or said "never" about a watch. The journey of collecting is long and takes its time and we people learn new things and facts, discover new brands and models and change minds. Our collection is the answer to our own changes and what... 

WristScan... Never again, but another week another challenge !
