WristScan - October Edition … Now Live !

Oct 06, 2023,06:37 AM

Hello dear friends !

We are now live and starting a little earlier for our big watch community event.

The theme is all about our watches and “treats” of any kind that we enjoy in life. This could be something simple like a coffee in the morning, a little patisserie, your favourite music, friends, or even the car you love. The main thing is it’s your special treat, the thing that makes life just a little better. 

The simple treat in the WristScan poster, is of a tasty apple patisserie that I (Captain) enjoyed overlooking a beautiful beach with a coffee this week… delicious !

Don’t forget that we have an additional new category for our new format WristScan. This is the “Classic” category for wrist watches and timepieces of ten years old or more. 

The categories presented by our moderator team of judges are as follows: 
Our new “Classic” category - Art 
Best Static Shot - Abel
Best Wrist Shot - KMII
Watch Of The Week - Captain

The results will be posted on Sunday evening dependant on our judges time zones. 

We look forward to seeing your photos and having some fun !

Best regards and thank you for joining us

Looking forward to seeing your photos.

On the no-processed carbs diet . . .

 By: Dr No : October 6th, 2023-18:35
. . . so only natural treats for me. The usual blend of Ethiopian and Hawaiian coffees, fresh figs, and . . . . . . date rolls dusted with coconut and almonds. And yes, I've lost three pounds in three weeks. ...  

That is one beautiful still life :-)

 By: stromer : October 6th, 2023-20:58
And a very nice Speedmaster! Maybe it helps a little with your diet to know that you are not alone with it. Since three months I am on it too (with noticable results). We can do it!

People tended to underestimate my true weigh t.

 By: stromer : October 7th, 2023-17:07
Actually I was beyond 100kg. Hoping that you will start loosing pounds at a higher rate soon, Art.

At least from here it doesn’t look that painful 😁

 By: KMII : October 7th, 2023-06:08

 By: KMII : October 7th, 2023-06:10
The range of treats and shots really makes for a feel good post! Simply sublime 🙌🏻👏🏻👌🏻

What a concidence!

 By: stromer : October 6th, 2023-08:02
This morning I am sitting at the terrace of a little Hotel at Lake Como and I decide to go back to the buffet looking for a little treat to close breakfast. What I found was a little apple patisserie, by concidence just like the Captain described it. It t...  

Treat with a view ! …

 By: Cpt Scarlet : October 6th, 2023-10:18
Hello Martin, That’s a fabulous view with your delicious apple patisserie … well played ! As you say, well balanced between sweet and fruity is the real deal ! Best regards Captain

September in the Alps, perhaps next summer . . .

Those days are unforgotten.

Cheers to these!

t has been an immense pleasure for me to meet one of our fellow members in the flesh!

 By: Mary Anny : October 6th, 2023-12:47
Such an enjoyable afternoon we had, talking about watches and more shared interests, Do you wonder who it was?! Just have a look at the photograph... Next one one is about one of the annual treats that I'm always longing to happen... Lovely theme this wee...  

A treat shared is indeed a very special thing …

 By: Cpt Scarlet : October 6th, 2023-14:45
But meeting someone with much in common is the greatest pleasure of all. Best Captain


 By: Mary Anny : October 6th, 2023-18:28

Congratulations 🎊🎉🎈

 By: KMII : October 7th, 2023-06:13
The watch was a giveaway for sure! And enjoy the family holiday 👋🏻

Hello Simone. What a treat to meet a fellow member in the flesh. Guess I know well who he is by his signature Doxa! Lol!

 By: Subexplorer : October 7th, 2023-14:20
I´m happy for both of you. I´m sure you had a great time. I would have loved to join both of you. Great shots and watches and enjoy so much your annual treat! Happy weekend! Abel

Thanks Abel,

 By: Mary Anny : October 7th, 2023-16:22
We really had a great time. Maybe, one day, we can reach you "at the end of the world", I've never been there and I'd really love to... Have a great weekend too!

My big pleasure Simone! I can well imagine you had a great time. And it would be a pleasure to meet you some day too. Be it here or in your land.

 By: Subexplorer : October 7th, 2023-22:31
May be I can fulfill my dream of diving in the Mediterranean some day and you can be my buddy there or you may visit my Country of course which I feel you would enjoy. Enjoy your weekend! Best, Abel


 By: Mary Anny : October 8th, 2023-06:53

Muchas gracias Simone!!

The Value of Time

 By: tomch : October 6th, 2023-13:49
The value of time is immeasurable. Two seconds in the right place with dear people and the perfect watch can't be surpassed by anything. ...  

I like your thinking 🤔 …

 By: Cpt Scarlet : October 6th, 2023-14:23
Time in itself is a treat in life. Good shot of your Lange, do you have a wrist shot to tempt us with ?

And the capture of the deadbeat seconds hand moving…

 By: KMII : October 7th, 2023-06:14
Is a treat in its own way 🙌🏻👌🏻

One of my favorite treats 😁

 By: KMII : October 7th, 2023-06:15
Love your matching the dial to the cover 👌🏻

Bucherer blue edition …

 By: Cpt Scarlet : October 7th, 2023-18:35
I love the dial and your choice of book. Good looking combo !

How about a pair of draft

Sam Adams with your lovely life partner (wife) in a vintage scenario (198 years old place with a 54 years old watch)... nothing beats quality time with your beloved ones ...  

A pub nearly two centuries old?! . . .

 By: Dr No : October 6th, 2023-18:48
. . . the longest-serving bar in Los Angeles is the Golden Gopher, established 1905. Actually, it's their liquor license that's over the century mark; they changed locations about twenty years ago. Only a block or so, but still not in its original buildin... 


 By: stromer : October 6th, 2023-19:56
When I read out your comment to my wife (who is sending her best regards) she smiled and presented the beer mug that she had emptied just before: Best, Martin ...  

Now I know why Al and Bobby . . .

 By: Dr No : October 7th, 2023-16:05
. . . Unser . . . . . . were so fast. ...  

Hi Martin...

 By: bsandovalb : October 8th, 2023-04:29
Now my wife is full of envy for that sweet mug !, greetings to you both from Costa Rica 🍻

But my über favourite treat is the time spent with my beautiful wife Best regards to all ...  

. . . and best of all, she approves . . .

 By: Dr No : October 6th, 2023-18:32

Happy wife, happy life ! …

Hello Ludi, It’s good to see that you both share the passion for watches. Your shots look very good especially the last shot of you both together, very touching. Best Captain

A great pairing.

 By: Bill : October 6th, 2023-17:56

The famous pam 203.

 By: Bill : October 7th, 2023-18:58
Have a wonderful weekend.

Hi Bill …

 By: Cpt Scarlet : October 7th, 2023-18:59
The food, the wine and the watches, all perfect as treats for living the good life ! Your choice of watches are sublime. Best Captain

Something sweet:)

 By: jml_watches : October 6th, 2023-22:21
Hi all Just indulging my sweet tooth If we're talking treat - that still leaves booze Cheers JML ...  

Do the alarms time till when the piece needs to be eaten? 😂🎂

 By: KMII : October 7th, 2023-06:19
Truly fabulous shots, making me thoroughly hungry 😁

I hadn't noticed how many alarms were in the shots! - but no, never need reminding when to eat cake 🙂

 By: jml_watches : October 7th, 2023-07:56
Might be that I too many alarms, but not convinced about that. Remember n +1 is the appropriate number Cheers JML

Treat overload 😬…

 By: Cpt Scarlet : October 7th, 2023-19:05
Oris and a cherry bakewell, Reverso and double macarons ! You are living the dream my friend ! Best Captain

One vice instead of another - sugar instead of beer

 By: jml_watches : October 7th, 2023-21:58
The beer shots are a whole other category & there are many of them 🍻

Hello dear Captain and friends! Yes, treats can be different…

 By: Subexplorer : October 7th, 2023-00:31
… but all of them make life better! They can be delicious and tasty treats like cofee, drinks, chocolates or meals… A treat can also be relaxing and reading a book… Of course to drive an special car can be a nice treat too… But best treats are those we ke...  

True words…

 By: KMII : October 7th, 2023-06:21
And a fabulous raft of shots to demonstrate them 😊👍🏻 Great watch / treat combinations indeed!

Eye catching treats …

 By: Cpt Scarlet : October 7th, 2023-19:20
Each and every one is a treat, both your selection of watches and treats gets my approval, but especially the last one 😉 Best Captain

Now here’s some of mine…

 By: KMII : October 7th, 2023-06:34
As some of you know, experimenting with straps is a treat for me… 😂 As is driving. Road trips are best but even the daily commute can be fun 🏎️ Exploring new places… Or revisiting old ones… Reading… Spending time with kids 🤹🏻‍♂️ Enjoying nature… And winte...  

Thanks so much Abel!

 By: KMII : October 7th, 2023-17:02
Tomorrow it’s cleaning the car of the signs the children left over the past six months, so I can return it on Monday 🤦🏻‍♂️ But it’s holidays from Tuesday onwards, so there’s something to look forward to 😁🤞🏻

Steak tartare?! . . .

 By: Dr No : October 7th, 2023-16:27
. . . that's one of the off-the-menu specialties at The Rainbow Bar and Grill. Miguel made it a few times while I was present for a regular customer who also fancied raw beef. Remind me when you visit LA. ;-)

That sounds very enticing 😋

 By: KMII : October 7th, 2023-17:03
Will certainly not forget 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻

Colourful treats …

 By: Cpt Scarlet : October 7th, 2023-19:28
Hello my friend, Your colourful straps are a treat for us to see. I particularly like the pink strap combo on your Laine. Best Captain

Can I join you . . .

 By: Dr No : October 7th, 2023-15:53
. . . with the first coffee . . . . . . of the morning? ☕️ ...  

I've had the Genève Stingray for quite awhile, Abel, but . . .

 By: Dr No : October 8th, 2023-15:24
. . . had to wait until now to wear it because it requires a scarce 20/14 mm strap. Finally sourced one this week, so it's getting its maiden voyage on my wrist this weekend. Best, Art

Thank you for your answer dear Art. I didn’t know this model.

 By: Subexplorer : October 8th, 2023-16:07
It has a lot of character and presence on the wrist. Very interesting. I’m happy to know you’ve found the correct strap and now you can enjoy wearing it so much! Have a nice Sunday Art! Abel

That’s a super Omega Art 👀

 By: Cpt Scarlet : October 8th, 2023-15:34

It's kinda like the platypus of Omega's history, Cap - odd irregular shape . . .

 By: Dr No : October 8th, 2023-16:59
. . . combined with an equally odd dial (no minutes markers) and a movement that was a joint venture with Tissot. They were made in the early '70s for just a few years. On my wrist now for the third straight day, and enjoying it more than expected.


 By: Cpt Scarlet : October 8th, 2023-17:38
I didn’t see one at the Omega museum in Switzerland.

Since the Museum has inconveniently bypassed the Stingray . . .

 By: Dr No : October 8th, 2023-18:36
. . . (or Cobra, as it's also known), here's a macro . . . . . . for your viewing pleasure. Notice the absence of minute marks, unusual for a cushion case design. Tool watch case, dress dial . . . not often seen. ...  

Thank you for joining us YousefJ …

 By: Cpt Scarlet : October 7th, 2023-19:31
Nice choice of watch for this shot, it looks excellent with your coffee. Best Captain

Thanks for hosting Captain!

 By: Timeout : October 7th, 2023-15:54
A couple of treats - one for consumption and one for the ages - 350th Anniversary coming up in a few years😊 ...  

Thanks KM.

 By: Timeout : October 7th, 2023-19:09
Lock & Co was founded in 1676 and has been making hats at its location on St. James’ Street, London ever since. Well worth a visit - even if you don’t wear a hat. This particular model is the Fairbanks Trilby - of which I have 3. It’s a bit less overpower... 

That is both cool and funny 😂

 By: KMII : October 8th, 2023-04:27
I remember that companies used to have hat codes as an element of the dress codes 😊

Hello and welcome Timeout …

 By: Cpt Scarlet : October 7th, 2023-19:34
Your hat shot is my kind of quality treat. Superb ! Best Captain

Thanks Captain!

 By: Timeout : October 8th, 2023-14:35

Many thanks Abel.

 By: Timeout : October 8th, 2023-14:33
I just put the CDV back on its Serapian strap for the winter. The summer months here are hot and humid so I generally go for straps with a natural rubber lining.

You are welcome Timeout. I like the Serapian looks and comfort so much and I have kept those original straps in my own CVD till today. I understand your point about wearing them during Summer ...

 By: Subexplorer : October 9th, 2023-14:38
... and your preference for rubber lined straps. In my personal case my skin doesn´t bear rubber straps contact for long periods so I can´t rely on them in my watches. That´s truly a shame. Keep enjoyin this beautiful chrono so much! Best, Abel

Great theme, Cpt! Relaxing with lattes and watches . . .

 By: Mach : October 7th, 2023-16:39
I think you get the idea!😉 ...  

Could it be…

 By: KMII : October 7th, 2023-17:04
That you enjoy mandalas? 😂 What a raft of superb watch shots 👏🏻🙌🏻👌🏻

I hope you're tipping your barista . . .

 By: Dr No : October 7th, 2023-18:10
. . . well. 🤑

I need one to make an eagle, Art! I’ll give them a great tip!😆

 By: Mach : October 8th, 2023-13:05
This amazing barista has finished college and has moved on to greener pastures!😢 ...  

Fabulous !

 By: Cpt Scarlet : October 8th, 2023-15:25

There should be a barista section . . .

 By: Dr No : October 8th, 2023-18:53
. . . in the Museum of Modern Art.

Amazing series Mark! I really love your Ed White!

 By: Chronometer (aka yacomino) : October 7th, 2023-19:10

Cheers, Yacomino!🥂

There's some great Seiko's in there! Cheers JML

Cheers, JML!🥂

 By: Mach : October 8th, 2023-13:17

Wow Mach! What an array of great watches! You had the help of a great barista to shoot these horological treats.

 By: Subexplorer : October 8th, 2023-13:45
So many wonderful watches (with some of my personal favorites among them) makes difficult to choose just one... or two. I´m specialy in love with your Chopard with its stunning dial. Enjoy them so much and have a nice and relaxed weekend. Abel

Wow ! … I’m buzzing after all that caffeine 😬

 By: Cpt Scarlet : October 8th, 2023-15:25
Good to have you with us Mach. I absolutely love your watch choices and it’s difficult to choose just one. Your Chopard looks particularly nice with a coffee. Best Captain

Evil Sexy Nurses … count me in 😉

 By: Cpt Scarlet : October 8th, 2023-15:27
Your Panerai was a perfect choice 👍 Best Captain

Oh yes, Nurses have many hidden talents 😎

 By: enjoythemusic : October 8th, 2023-15:34
The PAM 1118 seemed like a natural with all the blacklight and glowing spooky scenes. The X1 lume is sooooo bright that it doubled as a flashlight within the five Haunted Houses we visited.

Was this at Universal ?

 By: Cpt Scarlet : October 8th, 2023-15:35

Yes, and they had great music playing too. More adult oriented :)

 By: enjoythemusic : October 8th, 2023-16:56
Plus many of the usual park lights were off, so rollercoasters were far more fun. If you have the time, well worth it imho.

I’ve been ! …

 By: Cpt Scarlet : October 8th, 2023-17:41

Apologies, it was Bush Gardens.
