WristScan for weekend of Sept 19th & @20th is open; "Romans or Arabics"

Sep 20, 2019,09:49 AM

Please submit your offerings to be judged fairly and judiciously ;-)  well I actually submit with bias, but then we are NOT in a court of law!



I'm excited to see what is shown this week, as a lover of Romans, my heart usually points me in that direction, but I do have a couple in the collection that are rather tasty.

Let's see your tasty treats, and remember two offerings only if possible. I know some of you will find this tricky, however I and the judges will appreciate it ;-)

Great pictures ๐Ÿ‘ Is there any explanation as to why they made it like this?

I guess there is no explanation for this dial dear Christian...

... except it was designed and patented by Wildsdorf in the early days of Rolex. They were called Error Proof Radium Dials by Rolex. The term California is a modern term given by collectors and it is said that its origins is a California based dial restor...  

Dear Abel, thank you so much

this is very interesting. I thought it was a Panerai invention. The whole Rolex Bubbleback chapter is something I hardly know anything about but I am sure it has a huge following for a very good reason. What a wonderful advertisement you posted, btw. HAGW...

I think you just won your own competition. I really have a big thing for the VH. My only concern is if it would get enough wrist time. But every time I see a picture of it Iโ€™m thinking that I want one..

Christian, not sure I can win as the host...

 By: Tim Jackson : September 20th, 2019-23:20
It is a theme Iโ€™ve thought long about as previously stated, my preference tend towards Romans and in my collection they feature more prominently. However, two of my very fav. pieces are the VH Classic and the L&H Georg. Both Arabic! Hence the dichotomy of... 

One each...

Lots of tough competition including several independents like The debethune and your NHC. Besides - the judge and I are always on opposite sides of the table so sure heโ€™ll have preference for someone else

I am sure you expected no other one than this one from me today for its Roman numerals ;-)

Last pic credit : amanico few days ago... But since we are in Romans I cannot forget my grandfather's watch from 1865... And to echo your pic I'll post a hyper cool one with Arabics that I photographed at Vianney's workshop a month and a half ago during m...

Mike, there are three potential winners there!

 By: Tim Jackson : September 21st, 2019-08:17
The LF Iโ€™ve loved since setting eyes and handling one in Basel many moons ago! Your PW with the Guilloche Dial is superb, plus a family piece to boot. Well the WG VH Classic with the RG Dial is the natural sibling to mine! Perhaps one day Iโ€™ll come across... 

Well the 2 VH are not mine...

 By: Mike H : September 21st, 2019-08:21
I shot them at Vianneyโ€™s workshop when I was there this summer ๐Ÿ˜‰ Cool watches actually...

Ah, that workshop!!!

 By: Tim Jackson : September 21st, 2019-08:43
I too had a wonderful visit many summers ago now, the attic was fascinating too, many amazing machines ๐Ÿ˜œ Happy to hear you visited. Fond memories for me. Cheers

Amazing entries my friend . That LF is just stunning

 By: Watchonthewrist : September 21st, 2019-13:34
But that VH with a Salmon dial is the cherry on the cake imho . I would love to add that watch one day

Superb choices Mike!! All charming examples...

Thank you for these two lovely wristshots. That DeBethune is a new model for me. Looks to be an early piece??? Love it. Cheers

It's a DB 3

 By: Hamster07 : September 21st, 2019-20:22
A duel time watch with 7 days power reserve. Interestingly, this watch uses the golden moon as the PR indicator, showing the minimum and maximum. All functions are adjusted through the crown in 3 positions.

Brilliant, thank you for the details!

 By: Tim Jackson : September 21st, 2019-22:58
Much appreciated. From what time period where these made? solid or open back? Cheers, Tim

Circa 2003

 By: Hamster07 : September 22nd, 2019-01:23
The watch has a 42mm case with an in-house hand-wound mechanical movement. The case back is solid and individually numbered. Not sure about the total amount of production though.

Good to know. Thank you! [nt]

 By: InDebtButOnTime : September 21st, 2019-08:37
lots of batons and only a few with Romans. This whole thing got me to thinking strange thoughts, would there even be any timepieces with a digital readout without Arabics? How would the speedo on my Ninja look with Romans (Yikes)! Anyway here's a piece I ...  

Great Junghans!

... with a Cali dial. You show two superb examples of Roman index watches to open the thread. You know itโ€™s not easy for me to restrict a post to just a couple of shots! But here they are: no more than two! Lol! Roman and Arabic both are very nice to view...  

Thank you so much amigo Nicolas!! Glad you like it!
