WristScan - Now Live !

Sep 01, 2023,12:39 PM

Hello dear friends !

We are now live for WristScan and our theme is all about “August Vibes” and in particular the watches that you have enjoyed this month. Think of it as a retrospective !

Some watches just seem perfectly suited to different times of the year, paired with a different style of clothing and a change in the pace in life during the month of August.

Share a few photos with us and tell us about your choice of watch, clothing and lifestyle during August. 

Don’t forget WristScan has an element of friendly competition and fun. Your photos will be judged in three categories, Best Wrist Shot, Best Static Shot and finally Watch Of The Week. The results will be announced on Sunday evening. 

Hope you can join in !

Best regards

So fewer watches on straps, and it's on to watches on bracelets... And time spent cooling off in airconditioned cafes with a hojicha latte, reading books about horology. Dr Struthers' book is a very enjoyable read! Highly recommended. ...
