Wrist Scan for Friday 15th: "My Favorite City with Watches" is Open Now!!

Nov 15, 2019,04:13 AM

Hello Friends!! As announced before the theme for this week end is: "My Favorite City with Watches".

The challenge is to post shots and tell us a few words about your favorite city in the World: It can be your home town or other city in your own Country or abroad which you have felt in love with, or a city you enjoy so much every time you return to visit.

Show us some shots of the city and of course shots of the watch/watches you had on your wrist when visiting it.

In my personal case, the City in my Heart is Paris. It is always a joy to return and walk its charming streets and meet nice friends again.

Paris is a city full of History, Heritage, and romantic corners. You view its places from different angles and they always look like a charming postcard ... a changing scennary which is different in each season or at different times of the day.

Paris never ceases of amaze me with its looks and its people.

(No need to mention it has awesome watch shops and boutiques, wonderful shops to find fountain pens and legendary cutlery shops, and of course food is great!)

I am posting a few shots of "my" Paris below.

You are kindly invited to post your pictures of the City you love and your watches in this same thread.

For our new members please note we have three categories to be judged:

Best Static Shot

Best wrist shot

Best watch of the Week (to be chosen among pictures submitted to this thread)

You may post pictures in just one, two or the three categories if you wish.

Have a beautiful week end my friends!

... Yes, it is time to return, I miss Paris so much ... five years have passed since my last visit... a lot of time indeed. I wish next year Cosmos will align its stars to allow to visit again. Un abrazo mi querido amigo Nicolas! Buen fin de semana! Abel....
