Jan 06, 2023,14:03 PM
 


 
Hello dear friends,

We are now live for  our first theme of the year at WristScan !

Our theme is a relatively simple one and all about the watches that you chose to enjoy this week and for the coming weekend. 

It will interesting to see if the new year spurred you on to change your choice of watch or pull out some old favourites. 

We will close the event on Sunday evening and the results will be posted shortly afterwards.
The categories are Best Wrist Shot, Best Static Shot and Watch Of The Week. 

Please remember this is all for fun and our community spirit. Looking forward to seeing your watches and hearing about your choices. 

Best regards 
Captain - Host

I’m really enjoying watching DB as they evolve, and also start producing some smaller watches in the DB25 line - the new 40mm Perpetual in particular. It’s good to see the independent sector of the market so vibrant these days!

Patrick Head always said that Damon wanted a significant increase in his contractual salary and this played a part in his shock departure.

I remember that money played quite a significant part in his decision, but he did help raise Eddie's team profile and won their first race for them which was amazing.

I also remember how McLaren were always classed as the villain while Ferrari quite the opposite. The former did have the best cars then, but they were so good that there was no competition, at least for a while.
