WristScan - 3 Watches, 3 Days ...

Feb 05, 2021,04:07 AM

Hello dear friends of WristScan,

We are now live for for our “3 Watches, 3 Days”  WristScan event.
The challenge is for you to change your watch three times in three days, post a daily photo and tell us why you have made your choices. It could be for many practical reasons or just because you are enjoying a particular watch. 
We will judge the photos and choices on Sunday at around 17:00 GMT and announce the results.
Good luck and let’s have some fun.
Kind regards 
The Captain - Host

My choice for Friday, day one ...

The Rolex GMT-Master II It’s an incredibly versatile watch and crosses over to cover any eventuality. Formal or informal, no problem ... Exceptionally comfortable for a sports model due to the tapered and smooth bracelet. Quick set date and GMT function a...  

Thats one hot watch my friend 😉

Great casual Friday choice

Thank you ...

It’s interesting that you chose the Ed White 321 as I almost went for the same watch !. The Rolex GMT-Master II is a very flexible choice and I’m sure that you will receive yours soon 🙏 Remember the journey is all part of the joy. Looking forward to seein...

Tastes in watches and I wouldn’t be surprised if you hsd chose. Your EW as well. I also know your love for that watch. Agree with you with your thoughts about the GMT. I have been collecting and wearing several of its previous references and this is a nee... 

That is a nice Speedy, Abel.

 By: COUNT DE MONET : February 5th, 2021-10:00
What I like a lot is that it looks so dark, so black on your pictures. Not only the dial, the whole watch looks dark, bracelet including. Have not seen it in real (how could these tines?). Do you find it also extra dark looking?

Hello my dear Count!! Glad you like this watch and it is very interesting what you comment about it. Actually I feel that this is an effect of the watch being high polished and pictures...

 By: Subexplorer : February 6th, 2021-04:49
... taken under a very bright clear and sunny day which has rendered the watch darker. The bracelet is polished on it external links and brushed in the center ones. The dial is truly black and the polished ceramic bezel deep black too and this contributes... 

Very interesting impression from you, dear Abel.

 By: COUNT DE MONET : February 6th, 2021-09:36
This Ed White is a truely convincing Omega. HAGWE, my friend!

Hello dear friend HS! Thank you so much for your kind comments around my Ed White which is the latest catch for my collection.

 By: Subexplorer : February 6th, 2021-04:42
It is a wonderful modern variant which Omega offers in their catalog for our delight. Appreciate your kind comments so much my dear friend. Have a nice week end you too! Best. Abel

Good choice Captain!

Especially with that shirt combo. Don’t forget to join us again tomorrow. Best regards The Captain

Awesome patina on your 16750 dear S F!!

 By: Subexplorer : February 5th, 2021-08:45
You can’t never go wrong with a GMT in any reference. So nice to have yours back from the spa. We always miss our watches so much when they are receiving their service. I wish you’ll keep enjoying it so much! Hagwe! Abel

Really great looking 16750 !.. It is such a versatile and attractive tic-tac !.. on these (& mine) I also like the feature, to have a fast set option for the date !

 By: hs111 : February 6th, 2021-06:11
PS: BTW, also a great combo, the 16750 and your shirt !.. Well done, Sir and Looking forward to your entry for Sunday ! Best for your remaining WE, hs

My Choice for today ( Friday) is my ,,new,, Staudt that I picked up from Yvo Staudt last week . We had a nice idea last year to do another special watch with a new guilloche dial made by Jochem Benzinger and to finish it with Arabic Written numbers. I hav...  

What a beautiful watch dear Watchonthewrist!!

 By: Subexplorer : February 5th, 2021-05:47
I love salmon dials in contrast with a “white metal” case so much! This dial adds the Arab numerals making for an stunning and cool presence on the wrist. Lovely watch! Enjoy it so much and keep looking forward to that special Saturday watch. Hagwe! Abel ... 

Thanks for the kind words dear Abel .

 By: Watchonthewrist : February 5th, 2021-07:51
The watch turned out exactly like I hoped. I really enjoy wearing it .

My big pleasure my friend. Great to know it was exactly what you...

Congratulations, definitely one for today ...

 By: Cpt Scarlet : February 5th, 2021-06:27
That dial by Jochem Benzinger looks superb and the bracelet is bang on trend. Best regards The Captain

Its a watch from a fellow collector and also old member here .

I usually wear an Apple Watch most days, but wanted a change of pace today so I happen to be wearing a Seiko SBDB009. The titanium case, bezel, and shroud make for a fun watch. The dial is excellent with a matte finish and strong lume. I especially like t...  

Good to see this Seiko ...

 By: Cpt Scarlet : February 5th, 2021-09:53
The titanium case, bezel are very cool on this one. Thanks for joining us today and hope to see what you have on tomorrow. Kind regards The Captain

 By: hs111 : February 5th, 2021-09:44
My Friday chip-in: For today as a start, I chose an “under-the-Radar” watch, which however exhibits a lot of appeal, IMHO. It really wears comfy on the wrist, just the right size and not to much “ Bling”.. Explorer I, Ref 6610 -gilt; a real Classic with c...  

Beautiful Explorer ! ...

 By: Cpt Scarlet : February 5th, 2021-10:05
I particularly like the history that goes with the Rolex Explorer of this era. Very cool. Hope to see what’s happening n your wrist tomorrow. Best regards The Captain

And yes, often it’s really these well -aged Vintages, and especially from Rolex, which can offer real also “ GADA” properties (GADA=Go Anywhere, Do Anything). IMO, a nice Explorer sample, a very nice one, as I was lucky to find it, already several years ... 

Great Friday choice dear friend HS!! Agree it is an under the radar watch... for casual lookers. But for us watch lovers it is a brow rising piece your beautiful 6610 gilt!

 By: Subexplorer : February 6th, 2021-04:39
I love these old Explorers and they make for a charming and enjoyable presence on the wrist. Have a nice week end my dear friend! Abel

Hello, dear Abel - in kind return !.. Another kind looking from your side, and again thx a real lot !.. it’s always nice and gratifying if a good friend likes the choice(s), !

As mentioned quite often, already, I truly appreciate your nice sentiment ! Again your cute setup for your Ed White 321, really causes a smile, when I look at the pics. - It’s one of these little things, if we combine our watch displays with some fun and ...

With that special Breguet on your wrist my friend. I have to say it looks rather splendid. 🥂 Looking forward to seeing what you choose for tomorrow. Best regards The Captain

Thank you Captain 🥃🥃

Super Idea!

That’s a very cool combo of shirt and watch. Is that a new strap ? Thanks for joining us Best regards The Captain

Dear Captain,

many thanks for your kind words! Well, it is an original Jlc calf leather strap, I bought it around 6 Months ago.. Yours, Adam

Well it certainly looks good ...

Thanks for joining us Thomas...

 By: Cpt Scarlet : February 5th, 2021-11:01
Good to see that you are changing your watch regularly this weekend. Which one is your favourite ? Best regards The Captain

Of all the watches that I currently have

 By: Thomas_3 : February 5th, 2021-11:45
I would have to say the B&R ranks near the top. I have a Sub and a DateJust also, but the B&R always gets my eye to look down at it. And people to say "nice watch", just something about it.

Interesting ...,

 By: Cpt Scarlet : February 5th, 2021-12:10
I think you could have some fun playing with different straps on the B&R.

I have a honey colored ostrich strap in mind when

 By: Thomas_3 : February 5th, 2021-12:58
it comes time to replace the original rubber strap.

Hi Bill ...

 By: Cpt Scarlet : February 5th, 2021-12:15
The Benrus looks very cool and is a legend in the military. Perfect for your mission with the El Camino. Swing by again tomorrow to show us your Saturday choice. Best The Captain

Day 1 of the weekend (Yes, mine starts on Friday) 😂

 By: Daandeluxe : February 5th, 2021-12:03
Not really a specific reason why I wore this today, perhaps because I don’t wear it often... It’s weird, I really love all of my watches and adore them but during COVID I don’t feel that I appreciate them as before. Nowadays I wear my Garmin running watch...  

Welcome to WristScan 🥂...

 By: Cpt Scarlet : February 5th, 2021-12:22
Good to have you joining us. You make some good points about how the pandemic has changed our habits with our watches. Everything has become more casual. It’s still good fun to make time to enjoy our favourite watches with a bottle of wine at the weekend.... 

Friday - Cartier Santos Dumont Baladeuse

Hi Kent ...

I’m sorry to hear the news that your church was broken into and vandalised, you can’t believe what some people will do. Thank you for making time to join us and share the photos of your great Speedmaster. I almost put one on today as it’s a firm favourite... 

Thank you.

... to share your watch and shots with us! Beautiful Speedy and great shots. Hope everything will be fixed and those vandals will be caught by police. All the best, Abel

Thanks Abel!

 By: kkochheiser : February 6th, 2021-18:05
Things could have been much worse and the police have a suspect. We'll see. Such a big mess to steal nothing of any value. Drugs are a terrible thing. This place is a great escape. Now I just have to figure out tomorrow's watch! Kent

Our first Panerai of the weekend and a very cool one. Is it becoming a favourite in your collection ? Thank you for joining us and I hope to see another watch from your collection tomorrow. Best regards The Captain

Interesting ...

 By: Cpt Scarlet : February 5th, 2021-15:54
I still love a good Panerai. Interestingly, as I typed Panerai it tried to change it to Pandemic. That could have been difficult to explain ;-))

Yeah the pandemic collection are not ma favorite - ROFL

Huge congratulations on getting this one ...

I´m delighted to know you change watches daily... several times! I feel in company now as sometimes my friends tell me I´m nuts when I confess I change watches in the same day some times. I almost always do it daily but in some occasions I feel in mood to...

We are enjoying a very nice Saturday here, not very hot and clear sky make it very pleasant. I wish you are enjoying a nice week end as well. Best, Abel.

Love these cali dials. This is def my fav from the brand ,

Great case design and beautiful dial color

Saturday, Day 2 ...

 By: Cpt Scarlet : February 6th, 2021-04:08
Hello again dear friends of WristScan, I decided to go vintage today with my Breitling. This version was a firm favourite with US pilots during the Vietnam war... When a vintage watch hits the spot.... You need to choose the right jacket ... See you tomor...  

Hello dear Captain! The Navitimer is a true classic closely associated with pilots, airplanes, etc.. I like this watch so much and it is interesting that your choices for the three days challenge...

 By: Subexplorer : February 6th, 2021-04:57
... includes a vintage watch. I personally own a vintage one too with a very interesting patina and it is a delight on the wrist. Need to find the pictures though. Have a nice Saturday my dear friend. Best Abel

Thank you Abel ...

 By: Cpt Scarlet : February 6th, 2021-07:23
I also like the “rice grain” bezel. It’s difficult to find a vintage Navitimer that has not been over polished. ...  

Yours looks fantastic dear Captain!! A nice detail indeed.

 By: Subexplorer : February 6th, 2021-17:59
Here I found a couple of shots of mine. White sub dials turned golden. Regrettably mine it’s not an Aopa dial like yours. Hope you like it! Cheers! Abel ...  

Beautiful patina...

 By: Cpt Scarlet : February 7th, 2021-08:25
This looks superb.

Thank you so much!!

 By: Subexplorer : February 8th, 2021-13:20

Thank you 🙏

 By: Cpt Scarlet : February 6th, 2021-07:23

Excellent classic choice for a Saturday dear Captain

Beautiful pics btw

Many thanks 🙏

A bit late to the party...

 By: KMII : February 6th, 2021-06:14
So I will start with two shots, covering yesterday and today. Friday: As nowadays most of my time is spent in home office, which means a shirt and sweatpants combination (up to a year ago that would horrify me, too), I then at least try to spice things up...  

Hello KM ...

 By: Cpt Scarlet : February 6th, 2021-07:29
It’s good to see your choices and thank you for joining us. Straps make all the difference and you have two really cool ones in your photos. Hope to see your choice for tomorrow. Best regards to you and your family. The Captain

Hello KM, 2 convincing & appealing choices !.. Apart from the rustic Railmaster + fitting strap, I also like your 1st shot..

Hello dear friend KM! A bit late I am still enjoying pictures I couldn´t view along the week end. You always surprise us with you straps collection and combos with your outfits.

 By: Subexplorer : February 8th, 2021-13:26
These two watches, straps and outfits are no exception: extraordinary!! Thank you so much for sharing with us! Cheers! Abel

Day 2: disqualification!

 By: Chronometer (aka yacomino) : February 6th, 2021-06:41
Well I could not resist wearing the 995 again today so I guess I’m disqualified from the contest! LOL. I did however put a different strap to make a little change! ...

I think we can bend the rules on this occasion 😉

 By: Cpt Scarlet : February 6th, 2021-07:31
I really like your strap choice with the green dial. Best regards The Captain

Thank you Captain!

Enjoying it a lot lately after more than a decade sleeping in the safe

 By: 1WatchMan : February 6th, 2021-07:55
It has become my daily lockdown watch: super light and comfortable, and always ready to strap and go. I wish it was steel only, but getting used to the color.

I like your Hublot for all the reasons you make ...

Bi Metallic watches are making a comeback as fashions change.

You're right, it may come back, but I'm still a white metal guy

 By: 1WatchMan : February 6th, 2021-08:43
I bought this one long time ago, I was too young and my preferences were not as clear as nowadays. But I still love a lot of details of this watch, so no big regrets, only the color 😉

Sunday: On my way to the golf course

This one is definitely a well rounded WT, and very versatile as well. Thanks, have a great weekend too!

My pleasure, thank you 🙏

Just keep showing this one, it’s simply cool especially matched with this green strap. Best regards The Captain

Day 2 : ...Thank you captain. For sure I will.

I am stilling wearing my other beauty. So let’s re-introduce the for me emotionally most valuable Panerai. Beside that it’s for me as well most special Panerai. You know what’s coming: he pam1080... the Panerai which comes the nearest to the vintage 6152-...

Vintage gold ! ...

 By: Cpt Scarlet : February 6th, 2021-08:53
Hello dear Count, That movement looks in great condition. How long have you had this one ? Best regards The Captain

I got it only a few weeks ago: my brother shot two of them on ebay 😀

 By: COUNT DE MONET : February 6th, 2021-09:33
Serviced both and offered me one. A fine example that horology can be have for little, little money!

Hello Hans ...

 By: Cpt Scarlet : February 6th, 2021-08:55
Good to see you enjoying the snow with your family. Can you tell us a little more about your watch ?

Nothing special - but sits nice on the wrist

 By: hans_jorgen_1968 : February 6th, 2021-09:11
Nothing special, but a nice “modern case” with a bit vintage And for me (normally wearing watches not bigger than 40mm) this 42mm watch with a big crown sits really nicely From the launch Archimede Pilot Original will be limted to 90 Watches and features ...  

That’s very interesting ...

 By: Cpt Scarlet : February 6th, 2021-09:59
Thank you for letting us know. Jung Hans produced some good movements.

Thx - I didn’t know that :-)

My choice for the first day

De Bethune DB3, 7 days, moon power reserve indicator, 2 time zone ...  

Great looking DB ! ...

 By: Cpt Scarlet : February 6th, 2021-11:15
And it looks like a fairly early model. Have you had this one long ?

And for the 2nd day

 By: Francis5 : February 6th, 2021-18:26
De Bethune "Digitale", Window Display Calendar, 3-D Spherical Moonphase on back, 8 days power reserve. ...  

Day 3, DB all the way

 By: Francis5 : February 7th, 2021-07:17
DB15SW, Perpetual Calendar ...  

Thanks, Abel.

 By: Francis5 : February 9th, 2021-08:05
To suit the interesting theme, I guessed 3 DBs in a row sounds only natural 😉

Day 2 for me was another great day as I received a 2nd incoming in 2 days. Yesterday was a beautiful Breguet and today was probably the most fun I have ever had with a new watch...

 By: holdemchamp1225 : February 6th, 2021-11:23
Just love the new Snoopy. Everytime I look at it, it makes me smile and that is "PRICELESS." Switched out the OEM cordura/nylon strap which is super stiff for a denim jeans strap which is super supple and uber comfortable. I think I got the colors bang on...  

Wow! I love it!

 By: kkochheiser : February 6th, 2021-12:28
And that strap is perfect, both color and mood. Kent

Thank you so much for the additional shots dear Art. Agree about the beauty of these galvanized black dials. They are not easy to shoot under a plexi though to capture their true beauty.

I’m a big fan of this watch ...

Great history.

Yes I sometimes wonder where it has been and what is has seen

 By: ChristianDK : February 7th, 2021-21:24
I think I appreciate it on a purely aesthetic level as well. The domed crystal is so cool and the colors of the lume are really spectacular. It’s a real nod to seventies design. Very distinct and cool 😊

Seriously cool 🥶...

Three good choices ...

 By: Cpt Scarlet : February 7th, 2021-07:34
I always think the BB58 is under represented within our community for such an excellent watch. Looks good.

Thanks Captain

 By: Cookies : February 7th, 2021-17:08
It was a little difficult to get here, and I patiently put my name for it, to get a call 3 months later that it was available. Nice theme there for the weekend wristscan. Have a good one.

Day 3. Sunday. Something hot.

 By: ChristianDK : February 7th, 2021-06:27
After all this freezing ice, I lit the fireplace today. I’ve missed this piece for a while and it is such a pleasure to put it on. A watch that I keep has an opinion about it, which can spoil a bit of the pleasure. ...  

You probably know how many people would love to own this once in a lifetime

 By: Ahoi : February 7th, 2021-07:08
I am one of those . But I can still enjoy the look on it every time I see one. I like that simple look. Enjoying it near the fireplace is even better. Thx for sharing .

My pleasure to share it 😊

 By: ChristianDK : February 7th, 2021-22:20
I feel very lucky I was able to get it at a time when I wasn’t too difficult. I think what you said is true. Perhaps that’s why many like to talk it down. Thank you for message!
