WRISTSCAN 9th March - Neglected love - Starts now!!

Mar 07, 2019,15:11 PM

Lets face the pain and dig up your lost and neglected love. Find those neglected watches! And give β€˜m a stage this weekend.

It looked so good on Instagram....πŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ

Dear AHCI watch. From a Dutch master. So cool, but at the same time hardly worn. Why?

I’ve unveiled my pain. Be brave and do the same. Dig deep in the dark spots of your safe and/or secret hideout and give those lost loves some daylight this weekend!

Haha! Excellent.

I could wear them on my ankles. I got skinny legs.

You remember I called dibs on the Rimowa...

 By: KMII : March 8th, 2019-20:54
Should you ever decide it’s getting too little wrist time πŸ˜‰

Hehehe. [nt]

 By: zabreg1 Mr White : March 8th, 2019-00:29

Lol! [nt]

 By: drg : March 8th, 2019-14:31

Don't be mad it happens :) [nt]

Poor Seamaster... [nt]

So true! [nt]

 By: drg : March 8th, 2019-14:35

I like this Omega.

 By: zabreg1 Mr White : March 8th, 2019-00:29
Too bad it has been forgotten.

Always is, hehe. [nt]

Bulova Accutron Astronaut. Mid 1960’s 14k Gold coolness

 By: Franksc7 : March 7th, 2019-18:52
Really special watch but gets zero wrist time. ...  

Cool Bulova, Frank

 By: crown comfort : March 7th, 2019-23:11
I think when it comes to collecting vintage, it is not unusual that some watches do not get wrist time. They are still enjoyable and fit to a collection, but do not necessarily get worn.

Really is a cool watch...

 By: zabreg1 Mr White : March 8th, 2019-00:30
But, I can see why (IMO) it doesn't get much time to shine.

Well, I must admit

 By: crown comfort : March 7th, 2019-22:46
my Richeville Day/Night has been in the box far too long. The love is still strong, so you're WS made me take it out and I will wear it the entire weekend! CC ...  

You funny guy...I like you...:))) [nt]

 By: Ares501 - Mr Green : March 8th, 2019-14:21

Haha :D [nt]

 By: crown comfort : March 9th, 2019-03:39


 By: Arie - Mr Orange : March 7th, 2019-23:44
That was the whole idea. Giving the neglected ones some love this weekend.

Yep, it worked out. [nt]

 By: crown comfort : March 8th, 2019-09:53


 By: zabreg1 Mr White : March 8th, 2019-00:31
You know what I had to go through for this one? Hell, man, pure hell. Oh well, at least I got a free coffee out of it.

I know, but as I said, the love is still very strong.

 By: crown comfort : March 8th, 2019-09:53
and next time we do Grappa D-Style

We will both find out :D [nt]

Whenever, wherever. [nt]

Well.....question of the day....

Well...of course...

 By: Ares501 - Mr Green : March 7th, 2019-23:43

I have issues :))) [nt]

Both my proposition :) [nt]

Sorry, not my style by a mile. [nt]

Shame on you

 By: Baron - Mr Red : March 8th, 2019-01:41
But I do get the "there can be only one" theme

I'm turning Highlander [nt]

You just found perfect excuse for me :)

Cheers D

Mr. Green neglected Mr. Green?

 By: KMII : March 8th, 2019-21:24
Now this certainly needs to change 😊

It really should! [nt]

 By: Ares501 - Mr Green : March 8th, 2019-22:36

Me neither

 By: Arie - Mr Orange : March 7th, 2019-23:43
But the CvdK gets one or two days a year. Max. 😳

Great theme dear Arie , and i know what you mean with ,, they looked so good on Internet ,, πŸ˜‰

 By: Watchonthewrist : March 7th, 2019-23:17
I need to travel a long way just to pick them up πŸ˜‰ I also never wear this first edition Staudt πŸ˜” And these two CvdK,s Maybe i need to give them more love ! ...  

I like the Staudt a lot.

 By: zabreg1 Mr White : March 8th, 2019-00:34
The 7 Friday (or however you write that), sorrry, but I understand why you don't wear. But the CvdK, those are so you. What gives? Why not?


 By: Arie - Mr Orange : March 8th, 2019-00:41
They are weird

Yep . Weird love 😬 [nt]

 By: Watchonthewrist : March 8th, 2019-00:51

That's how you roll. [nt]

 By: zabreg1 Mr White : March 8th, 2019-01:12

Just to much other options 😬

 By: Watchonthewrist : March 8th, 2019-00:50
But yes i need to give the CvdK,s a bit more love .

The Staudt and the two CvdKs are really cool

 By: KMII : March 8th, 2019-21:28
My favorite being the black dial one! Would love to see it live one day πŸ™πŸ»

Here is mine. It really is completely forgotten.

 By: zabreg1 Mr White : March 8th, 2019-01:11
A perfect theme for today as I have nothing better to do anyway. So I pulled this one out, the JLC Master Control Master Grand Reveil. A long time ago, I really wanted this watch and loved its combination of PC and alarm. But, it is really large on my wri...  

Can't recall ever seeing this on your wrist.

 By: Arie - Mr Orange : March 8th, 2019-01:37
So a truly forgotten piece. Are you wearing it today? Giving it some love? How thick is it? 15 mm?

Never, ever wear it. Shame. [nt]

 By: zabreg1 Mr White : March 8th, 2019-06:51

That is one that I didn't expect on you

 By: Baron - Mr Red : March 8th, 2019-01:38
But a stunner. Bring it one more

It's like a hockey puck. [nt]

 By: zabreg1 Mr White : March 8th, 2019-06:51

Your right . He dos offer applied hour markers on a few (petit)models (with MOP dail) but most are painted .

 By: Watchonthewrist : March 8th, 2019-04:44
Will have a chat with him next time i see him to see if he will do it on future models ...  

It is amazing.

 By: zabreg1 Mr White : March 9th, 2019-00:45
The dial is very nice with just the right amount of colors, and the alarm function is uber-cool, since you can go from chiming to vibrate.

I vaguely remember...

 By: KMII : March 8th, 2019-21:32
You bringing this to Vienna and I am very grateful that you did. Was actually really close to pulling the trigger on one but more or less sight unseen. While I still really like the combination and the value, the thickness would have made it difficult for... 

No getting around it.

 By: zabreg1 Mr White : March 9th, 2019-00:45
Mind you, I was 20 kg heavier when I first got it.

Cool watch - but I'm with you on its brick like tendancies

 By: jml_watches : March 10th, 2019-04:25
Will admit until I started wearing a 42mm watch a fair bit I was always of opinion it was way too big. So wearing your hockey puck - might get it to be the new normal! Cheers JML Ps just think how it'll make everything else look thin & elegant 😁

Good point.

 By: zabreg1 Mr White : March 10th, 2019-04:30
But I do have a few other hockey pucks and wear them regularly.

For me.....

 By: Baron - Mr Red : March 8th, 2019-01:42
Not worn that often, but actually loved a great deal. ...  

That’s a nice one.

 By: zabreg1 Mr White : March 8th, 2019-02:16
Definitely need to see it sometime.

My son bought it for me for Father's Day

 By: Baron - Mr Red : March 8th, 2019-02:21
....so yes, treasured albeing not worn a lot

Good son.

 By: zabreg1 Mr White : March 8th, 2019-03:47
Good parents, too.

Absolutely. [nt]

Excellent superposition! Cheers D

LoL ! [nt]

Very nice one. [nt]

 By: zabreg1 Mr White : March 8th, 2019-06:52

Thanks ! [nt]

 By: Ron_W : March 8th, 2019-08:07

Too many of out pocket watches go ignored.

 By: zabreg1 Mr White : March 9th, 2019-00:46
I bet many here have the same problem.

Total class. [nt]

 By: amanico : March 8th, 2019-07:57

Thank you CC ! [nt]

The neglected vintage Disco Volante Doxa

 By: NT931 : March 8th, 2019-07:13
Picked up this "no lugs",jumbo Disco Volante some time ago. Despite buying a custom fixed lug 17mm strap for it, somehow it didn't quite connect with me and it sat unworn for many months. Couldn't quite get used to the lack of any lugs... I found it again...  

That is classy [nt]

 By: Baron - Mr Red : March 8th, 2019-07:52

We live and learn

 By: Arie - Mr Orange : March 8th, 2019-08:10
We live and learn...

Very cool Doxa!

 By: KMII : March 8th, 2019-21:35
And looking like it might have been a design inspiration for Nomos πŸ‘πŸ»

Thanks friends. Indeed, always surprises me how tastes evolve...

 By: NT931 : March 9th, 2019-19:10
... watches I like then fall out of favor while others re-enter the circle of favourites!


 By: KMII : March 8th, 2019-07:32
The SPB069 sees way too little wrist time. Love the dial, the hands and the overall design but it somehow doesn’t get onto the wrist often enough πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ ...  

You should wear more often [nt]

 By: Baron - Mr Red : March 8th, 2019-07:51

Definitely should πŸ˜ŠπŸ‘πŸ»

 By: KMII : March 8th, 2019-09:58
Somehow things happen though πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ

Can't go wrong with enamel! [nt]

 By: Arie - Mr Orange : March 8th, 2019-08:11

Thanks CC!

 By: KMII : March 8th, 2019-09:59
Scheduled for next week 😊

Such a great dial.

 By: zabreg1 Mr White : March 8th, 2019-10:41
I have the exact same problem.

I know the feeling...

 By: KMII : March 9th, 2019-02:15
Happens to me, too. Promised to myself to wear it next week, though 😊

You shoud def wear it more my friend πŸ™πŸ»

 By: Watchonthewrist : March 8th, 2019-12:34
Its such a good looking watch

There’s no objective reason for it...

 By: KMII : March 8th, 2019-20:50
And fully agree with you 😊

Definitely this one, put on sale once a year but always a good reason to not conclude

 By: Tyo : March 8th, 2019-08:29
first time on my wrist for a while but I like it. For me it’s more a piece of art than a piece to wear. ...  

Also a bit surprised. [nt]

 By: zabreg1 Mr White : March 8th, 2019-10:42

Good to know it got a podium on your wrist today!

 By: Arie - Mr Orange : March 8th, 2019-14:32
Maybe you will keep it there this whole weekend?

nope already swapped for this

 By: Tyo : March 8th, 2019-14:48

Again good swap if you ask me :) [nt]

 By: Ares501 - Mr Green : March 9th, 2019-01:58

Just goes to show...

 By: KMII : March 8th, 2019-21:38
How weβ€˜re drawn to different things. But I guess something still draws you to it, as the sale is never concluded 😊

This is a most interesting theme dear Arie... And I feel we will be viewing a good array of amazing watches this week end...

 By: Subexplorer : March 8th, 2019-11:06
... Watches which haunted us and fired the impulse to buy them... but the pass of time (and the existence in our watch boxes of other more exciting pieces) relegate them to the bottom of a drawer and little wrist time. I choose four watches in this catego...  

Thank you so much Abel!

 By: Arie - Mr Orange : March 8th, 2019-14:31
And yes it is really fun & interesting to see what everybody has got tucked away somewhere. I hope we will get to see a lot of watches we and the owner haven’t seen before in a long time. Time for the β€˜misfits’ to shine like a star ⭐️

Four lovely pieces, Abel...

 By: KMII : March 8th, 2019-21:42
And thanks for the stories going with each of them! I know what you mean about the 300 - it didn’t work for me on the wrist either.

Thank you so much for your kind comments dear KM! Always my pleasure to share my watches here! Interesting to know you had a similar...

 By: Subexplorer : March 9th, 2019-06:51
... Experience with the SM! I bought also the James Bond variant of this watch as a present for my son. It became one of his favorite watches! Im happy to see it on his wrist very often. It is strange that we can develop a certain rapport with some pieces... 

Great photos, as always, my dear Abel.

 By: zabreg1 Mr White : March 9th, 2019-00:49
The Breitling and Hamilton are not really my style, but the Omega definitely is. And the Oris is just great. I love what they are doing with reissues these days. I am so close to actually getting one.

Dear friend Zabreg. Thank you for your kind comments! Yes, the Breitling is somewhat outdated but it keeps good memories to me. The Hamilton...

 By: Subexplorer : March 9th, 2019-06:47
... Well it was a purchase answering a caprice of mine! Lol! Nothing special indeed. The Omega is a great watch which deserves more wrist time. Somehow I couldn t connect with it. The Oris is a very nice re iissue indeed and a lot of a watch for its price... 

I have really forgotten you have that Breitling and didn't knew you have that Hamilton!

 By: Ares501 - Mr Green : March 9th, 2019-02:00
Have a great weekend my friend!. Cheers D

Ha ha ha ha!! [nt]

 By: Subexplorer : March 9th, 2019-13:33

Quite an array of neglected watches, Abel.

 By: crown comfort : March 9th, 2019-03:41
I can see the Breitling why it has moved a bit out of favour, but the others are still very up-to-date.

Thank you so much dear CC! Yes, pass of time and the arrival of other more exciting pieces make us forgett some pieces which ...

 By: Subexplorer : March 9th, 2019-06:38
sparked our joy in the past. I feel I urgently need to depurate my collection and keep the pieces Im really fond of. Hagwe my dear friend! Abel


 By: jml_watches : March 8th, 2019-15:37
Hi This struggles to see much wrist time Cheers JML ...  

Truly unusual Swatch

 By: KMII : March 8th, 2019-21:43
And I can see how you would not wear it regularly. But a cool piece for the collection πŸ‘πŸ»

This is indeed very interesting.

 By: zabreg1 Mr White : March 9th, 2019-00:50
Never seen this one.

Not sure on the numbers - but weren't made for very long

 By: jml_watches : March 9th, 2019-01:37
There were a few variations , even a carousel one I think it got bought to scratch a new watch itch. Cheers JML

Thanks :) [nt]

. . . that need to come up for air, Arie. As it happens, I just returned home from jury duty, so unable to access my safe deposit box. Old pics will have to do this time around. Both of these . . . . . . are in desperate need of wrist time. Art ...  

That planetary watch is awesome!

You encounter your kids teacher with bear feet? πŸ™ƒ

If I did that I would get in all kinds of trouble 😜

Don't you anyways? [nt]

And I hope it gets more air time πŸ‘πŸ»

Today on the wrist as well [nt]

The last one, I understand.

But the GO and the Seiko are pretty wearable.

A Kind of Therapy...

 By: Cpt Scarlet : March 9th, 2019-05:00
This weeks WristScan has been a kind of therapeutic pleasure. It’s turned up all kinds of things that once I started ended up being very rewarding. I have drawn a line between the items that I remembered that I had put away and β€œThe Forgotten”, here we go...  

While cleaning out my digital closet

 By: timerider : March 9th, 2019-09:52
I found a few rarely worn pieces. Thanks for the reminder that I need to wear them, now. I suppose it has been such a long wet winter that the leather strap watches have been hiding!! Still raining today. Take care my friends, Tim ...  

Oh 😱 that Speake Marin!

dry day. Crazy wet weather.

Another JLC Master Grand Reveil...

makes me think, perhaps it is a bit large to wear...?

That JLC and PSM 😱
