Hello dear friends !

We are now live for WristScan and this weekend we are looking to have some fun with chocolate ;-)

Our theme for WristScan is all about watches and chocolate.

The Swiss love chocolate and I’m sure you probably indulge occasionally !

Simply show us the watches you are wearing this weekend with the chocolate that you enjoy most, especially at this special time of the year for those of us that celebrate Easter. 

We have all the usual categories for your photos to be entered into and the results will be posted at some point on Sunday.

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

Looking forward to seeing your watch shots and some delicious chocolate !

Best regards

I´m happy to know you like them. Agree it is funny (and a bit surprising) to find these different chocolate designs. Chocolate eggs is a long standing tradition here, as the little chocolate figures of rabbits and hens, but I had never seen before the cel...
