WristScan “Cast Away” - Live …

Nov 04, 2022,14:09 PM
 


Hello dear friends !

We are now “live” for our WristScan theme, following in the footsteps of Tom Hanks in the film “Cast Away”. 

Tom had a basketball famously called Wilson to keep him company, but we have our watches !
Let’s have some fun and post the watch and any accessories that you would take with you to that desert island !

Results of our WristScan theme will be posted on Sunday sometime after 17:00 GMT and your photos will be Judged in three following categories:

• Watch Of The Week 
• Best Wrist Shot 
• Best Static Shot 

The WristScan guide is available via this link:
www.watchprosite.com

Best regards and looking forward to you joining us !
