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