Wrist Scan for Friday November 6th is Open now! "From WrisScan With Love"

Nov 05, 2020,19:02 PM

Hello dear friends: As our dear Captain Scarlet has announced last Wednesday he has chosen a special Theme to celebrate the life of Sean Connery and pay tribute to the great Actor we have recently lost.

Both Captain Scarlet and me will have the great pleasure and honor of hosting this edition of WS.

Our favorite Bond needs to be equipped by our WristScan Q Division for his final mission, so we are requesting our members to decide on some important items for Bond:

A Watch

A Bond Girl

A Car

We also expect to read your thoughts about Connery and his Bond character. As we know he was the first Bond and he set a bar very high for the different actors who played Bond after him.

As usual participants can submit photographs for any or all three categories: 

Best Static Shot

Best Wrist shot

Best watch of the week to be chosen by the hosts among the watches shared in this thread.

You may begin posting in this thread.

Now my thoughts about the three items required:

Watch: though I´m very pleased with the Omega watches Bond is wearing since Pierce Brosnan took the character, and specially with the last model launched for the movie No Time To Die, I feel that Connery/Bond needs a Submariner on his wrist.

He wore a 6538 Big Crown on his films but nowadays I would suggest a 40 mm Submariner no date with ceramic bezel ref 114060 for this mission. This sturdy watch could be used as Ian Flemming suggested in his novel To Her Majesty Secret Service: as a knuckle duster!

A Bond girl: Not easy to replace girls like Ursula Andress or Honor Blackman but I though about a lady who could play a wonderful Bond girl: Charlize Theron. In the picture here we can see her wearing a large Deep Sea Sea Dweller in her wrist.

A Car: I would insist in his classic Aston Martin DB4 as it appeared for first time in Goldfinger and even in the latest adventures of Daniel Craig´s Bond.

I look forward to your suggestions and to have a great and enjoyable week end! Best cordial regards, Abel

Here we find our favorite Q: Desmond Llewelyn

Bond ref 6538

My favorite Bond girls:

The Car ...

The new Bond Girl: Charlize Theron...

Well my dear Nicolas! You got both car and watch requeriments...

 By: Subexplorer : November 6th, 2020-03:29
... very well covered here! I feel Mr. Bond would be pleased driving your P1800 Volvo after our Q branch would install a few secret gadgets inside. And we already know how gorgeous a big crown Submariner looks on Connery’s wrist whether fighting villains ... 

A modern James Bond Car could well be this one...

 By: amanico : November 6th, 2020-06:06
As for James Bond Girl, I have no damn idea.... ...  

Ahh I feel Bond would approve! Guess this machine would be a nice one to enjoy some fast driving around Furka Pass chasing a mischievous villain...

 By: Subexplorer : November 6th, 2020-06:33
I see a lot of love with this one lately my dear Nicolas... are you getting one for you? It would be a marvelous addition to your P-1800! Have a nice day my dear friend! Abrazos desde las Pampas del Sud, Abel ...  

Amazing scenery! What a road! [nt]

True! A thrilling part of Goldfinger was filmed here...

Bond aboard his DB5 follows Goldfinger’s yellow Rolls. A classic!!

Dear Captain! I feel Mr. Connery/Bond would gladly approve everything. He will also promise Q to return every gadget to his Department safe and in working order after ending his mission!...

... A gorgeous lady you have chosen for the new Bond girl! An explosive combination for this last mission we have here! Cheers! Abel

Bond ! ...

Q here .... we have looked at your request for the Rolex Submariner and made a modification that could come in handy if you meet your old friend Rosa Klebb ! The stiletto crown Submariner.... Do be careful 007 ! ...  

A stiletto blade concealed in the crown of my Rolex? You´re joking!! ;)

 By: Subexplorer : November 6th, 2020-09:49
I feel Rosa Klebb would be surprised with this ... I´ll be careful Q... Have I ever let you down? (I´m enjoying this so much my friend! Lol!)

Really 007 ...

 By: Cpt Scarlet : November 6th, 2020-09:57
I remember what you did to Little Nellie ! ...  

Worth considering. [nt]

Hello dear Count ...

 By: Cpt Scarlet : November 6th, 2020-11:19
Yes, it’s true about the toupee. Your choice of Bond car is perfect, as is the girl and the watch. Hope that you have a great weekend Kind regards The Captain

Thank you ...

 By: Cpt Scarlet : November 6th, 2020-11:31
Plenty of good chilled champagne is best solution to the current situation ;-)) 🥂

Always a good idea 👍 [nt]

 By: Cpt Scarlet : November 6th, 2020-11:39

Hello dear Count! Yes, the toupee thing is true, and I agree that Connery will live in his movies and in the hearts of his fans. I´m one of them...

 By: Subexplorer : November 6th, 2020-17:36
... Good suggestions of cars. The Bentley will follow the tradition as first car named in Ian Flemming´s novels was a Bentley equipped with a supercharger in spite of Rolls warning of not doing so. The Superleggera Aston Martin will follow tradition too. ... 

Definitely 👀 [nt]

 By: Cpt Scarlet : November 6th, 2020-15:19

Oooh yes, that's a very good one!

-Watch √ -Weapon √ Car - has to be an Aston Martin. While waiting for WS-Q Division to send one over, making do with this now. As for the Bond girl - happy with anyone from the bevy of beauties handpicked by discerning Purists .. ...  

Anything by Alpina is good ;-))

 By: Cpt Scarlet : November 7th, 2020-01:22
Hi S.F, thanks for joining us for this edition of WristScan. Your Rolex Sub is the perfect choice in my opinion. Hope that you have a great weekend. Regards The Captain

Absolutely agree!! [nt]

 By: Subexplorer : November 7th, 2020-04:41

Completely agree 👍 [nt]

 By: Cpt Scarlet : November 7th, 2020-05:25

Thank you for your suggestions dear S F! I´m sure our beloved Agent will approve! A Submariner and an Aston are classics which I´m sure will keep Connery/Bond so happy.

 By: Subexplorer : November 7th, 2020-04:18
The Alpina Beemer will be a wonderful substitute in the meantime. Probably 007 will want to keep it to in his garage. Intriguing weapon on background with that ventilated barrel shroud!! Bond needs to be well armed... always! Thank you for your contributi... 

My big pleasure!! [nt]

Unfortunately, no british lady in my vicinity. ...  

A most appropriate suggestion Pongster!!

A beautiful chronometer like your Bremont will be what Bond needs whether to control an explosion in the villain premises or to be sured that the boiled eggs for breakfast cook for the exact three and a third minutes he prefers! I’m a fan of Jaguar and I ...

Scottish? [nt]

I recently watched movies about marie curie and marie colvin

 By: pongster : November 8th, 2020-02:01
And i thought, rosamund pike would make a great bond girl. I was enamored with her in jack reacher and gone girl. Then when i read up on her, she already appeared in a bond a movie.

Rosamund Pike is a beautiful woman no doubt. She played character Miranda Frost in Die Another Day with Pierce Brosnan as Bond.

 By: Subexplorer : November 8th, 2020-07:35
She could play again as Bond Girl for sure. Cheers! Abel ...  

Another British option ...

 By: Cpt Scarlet : November 7th, 2020-08:04
Tested to destruction ! ...  


 By: Ted-Lo : November 7th, 2020-08:40

It was 6536/1 but i let it go many years ago feeling the small crown was small.

 By: Bill : November 7th, 2020-12:36
I also let the 5508 and 6202 go all same time unfortunately.

Remorses? [nt]

Beautiful and with the perfect strap ...

Thank you so much Brandon for your contribution to Mr. Bond arsenal. I´m sure que will love this one!! That´s a superb piece of history!

 By: Subexplorer : November 7th, 2020-12:56
It would be wonderful if Bond had this at hand in "From Russia with Love"! But will make good use of it in this last mission as well. Any suggestion for a car ... or Bond Girl? Cheers! Hagwe! Abel

If I was Bond, I would be less focused on saving the world

 By: Brandon Skinner : November 7th, 2020-13:25
And more focused on the Bond Girls!!! Hence I would need something nice and spacious, with enough room for a command center and a place to store my weapons. As such I would find a low mileage one of these... And a Bond girl... it would have to be the Grai...  

Thank you so much again Brandon !! The vehicle will be approved by our Q Department indeed!! And you have such a gorgeous wife. A lovely Family my dear friend...

Black Connie ...

 By: Cpt Scarlet : November 8th, 2020-02:45
Hi Art, The Untouchables was a superb film and Connery got the Oscar for his top performance. Your Black Connie would look perfect with his dinner suit and a pair of Onyx cufflinks. Have a great weekend The Captain

Connery won Best Supporting Actor for . . .

 By: Dr No : November 8th, 2020-07:49
. . . that performance? I'd completely forgotten, Captain. Amazed, Art

How could you forget ;-)) [nt]

I manage to forget leaving the mail key on the post box . . .

 By: Dr No : November 8th, 2020-10:29
. . . but yeah, Sean taking the Academy Award some 20+ years ago . . . and I watched it happen live on TV. :-(

We have far more important information to contemplate ...

 By: Cpt Scarlet : November 8th, 2020-10:50
Mostly watch related ;-))

My gosh, I just checked - it was thirty three years ago! . . .

Wow, can you believe it 🤔 [nt]

The Sub will always be a top choice for Bond ...

 By: Cpt Scarlet : November 8th, 2020-02:35
Excellent choice and and two good photos Frank. Thank you for joining on WristScan this weekend. Kind regards The Captain

As I am weak on both Omega and Rolex...

 By: KMII : November 8th, 2020-02:08
This will be a more theoretical one for me. The answer would of course strongly depend on what kind of Bond one is set to equip. If we look at the history of the character, he has probably been the first notable social media influencer, at the time when m...
