WristScan Live ! …

Jan 05, 2024,13:21 PM

Hello and Happy New Year dear friends !

We are now live for the first WristScan of 2024 !

The theme, as you can see from our poster is all about our watches and the “targets” that you would like to acquire this year. 
This could be a particular watch or watches that you would like to add to your collection and other things like travelling to a special destination or owning the car of  your dreams.  The main thing is that makes life just a little more enjoyable in 2024.

Don’t forget post some photos of the watch or watches that you are enjoying this weekend. 

We have the additional category for “Classic” wrist watches and timepieces of ten years old or more. 

The categories presented by our moderator team of judges are as follows: 

Our new “Classic” category - Art 
Best Static Shot - Abel
Best Wrist Shot - KMII
Watch Of The Week - Captain

The results will be posted on Sunday evening dependant on our judges time zones. 

We look forward to seeing your photos and having some fun !

Best regards 
Captain and WristScan Team

My target is to rearrange my watch collection. I am looking to sell my Overseas / 5711J / A&S Nebula / JLC RDM to add either of the following combinations 3a. or 3b. below. I am interested in your thoughts whether I should go for 3a. or 3b. and why!

 By: LX (Alex) : January 5th, 2024-13:22
1. Today’s starting point is this: 2. I am looking to sell my VC Overseas, my PP 5711J, my A&S Nebula and my JLC RDM in order to add the following: 3a. This combination: or 3b. This combination: Which combination should I aim for - 3a. or 3b. and why, in ...  

Great starting point you share here Alex! And an interesting target you aim for the New Year 2024. Now... to decide between 3a or 3b is a big dilemma as both are so tempting.

 By: Subexplorer : January 5th, 2024-13:46
I feel that resolving this dilemma is a matter of a very personal taste (and opportunity) and only you can decide after much thinking. In any case you can´t go wrong whichever your decision as these are very desirable and wonderful pieces around two class... 

Fascinating choice …

 By: Cpt Scarlet : January 5th, 2024-14:24
I agree with Abel’s assessment of the situation, it’s a very personal decision. If it was me I would go for option 3b. My reasoning is that I love the dials on both the Nautilus Chronograph and the simplicity of the Vacheron dial. Best regards Captain ... 

Since I own none of the options…

 By: KMII : January 7th, 2024-12:36
I might not be fully qualified but I personally prefer 3B. The time only OS somehow balances better for me 😊🤷🏻‍♂️

Starting 2024 ! …

 By: Cpt Scarlet : January 5th, 2024-13:28
Hello dear friends ! I hope you have had a wonderful festive holiday and started 2024 in a positive way. I have been fortunate to have started the year with a new Porsche after several delays, but it finally arrived on the 1st of January ! As the weather ...  

What a great way of starting you year dear Captain!! Big Congrats and I wish you´ll enjoy it so much and in the best of good health.

 By: Subexplorer : January 5th, 2024-13:37
A Submariner is always a great option. I feel you can´t never go wrong with a Sub in any of its several references. (Well, yes, I´m a bit biased here! Lol!) Receive my best cordial regards and good wishes my dear friend. Abel

Thank you dear friend …

 By: Cpt Scarlet : January 5th, 2024-14:17
It’s been a long time coming due to supply chain issues. All I need to do now is put some miles on it… using considerable restraint !

Well it finally arrived! Now … to enjoy it!!

 By: Subexplorer : January 5th, 2024-23:47
I’m happy for you my dear Captain! I wish some day you can take me for a ride!! Best! Abel

Nice way to start the year Captain!

 By: Timeout : January 5th, 2024-14:35
Congratulations on the Porsche. Would love to see some more photos in due course.

Thank you …

 By: Cpt Scarlet : January 5th, 2024-18:04
I’ll definitely post some more as soon as I get a moment.

What a great way to start the new year with dear Captain.

 By: Watchonthewrists : January 5th, 2024-20:00
Any watch will do inside a new porsche imo 👌🏻😉 but a Rolex is a good choice 👍🏻🤗

Thank you and Happy New Year …

 By: Cpt Scarlet : January 6th, 2024-11:44
Two design classics made for maximum enjoyment 😉

Thank you dear HS 🙏

Many thanks for organizing this month’s event Captain.

I’m zeroing in on my retirement date at the end of March - one target that I won’t miss 😂. This will be followed by my second target - spending a week in London and Geneva in early April while attending Watches & Wonders 2024 - flights and hotels booked s...  

Congratulations on retirement! . . .

Thanks Art.

I’m giving myself a 2 year head-start on my government pension. Hopefully there’ll still be something left when I get there 🤣

Congratulations to you, too!

 By: KMII : January 7th, 2024-12:38
How do you feel about it? 😊

Pretty good.

 By: Timeout : January 7th, 2024-15:55
I’m starting with a Board position on a charity later this month and will look around for a couple of commercial board positions. Combined with more travel and our daughter’s destination wedding in 2025 I think I have enough to keep me busy😉

That’s quite a schedule !

 By: Cpt Scarlet : January 8th, 2024-09:57

Great things to look forward too 👌🏻

 By: Watchonthewrists : January 5th, 2024-20:04
So you can enjoy your beautiful collection even more 👍🏻🤗

Thank you for joining us …

 By: Cpt Scarlet : January 6th, 2024-11:48
You certainly have a wonderful target for this year. Both your Moser and Lange look very good in your photos. I particularly like your wrist shots, all are very attractive. Best regards Captain

Many thanks Captain.

 By: Timeout : January 7th, 2024-15:58

Many thanks.

Getting in a practice run in mid-February with a friend’s 65th birthday cruise in the Eastern Caribbean 😉

Some beautiful pictures!

And it must be quite a big milestone, in March! Looking forward to it or is there an element of trepidation after so long? 😊

My target watch for 2024 is

a Cartier tank watch. Have tentatively decided to give the quartz model a try, but that could change when the time comes. ...  

Hi Thomas

 By: Timeout : January 5th, 2024-15:06
Cartier Tanks are always a safe bet. I struggled to find a size that worked for me - ended up with a quartz Tank Solo which my son borrowed 5 years ago - and I haven’t seen it since🤣. I ended up with a Santos Dumont which worked better for me size wise. W... 

I know a lot of "purists" kind of poo-poo the mere thought of quartz.

 By: Thomas_3 : January 5th, 2024-15:26
All of my other watches are automatic or manual, I am willing to get a quartz Cartier with the thought that movement is better than the box store quartz watches and the fact that will always be set, running and ready to put on.

Get the Tank Solo

 By: David Allen : January 8th, 2024-00:51
It's a great watch. I rotate it regularly between my Royal Oak and Nautilus and it holds its own. Who cares that it's a quartz watch. It's pure class on the wrist.

I don’t see a problem with buying one …

 By: Cpt Scarlet : January 8th, 2024-09:59
It’s a high quality quartz movement.

Good choice …

 By: Cpt Scarlet : January 6th, 2024-11:51
This is a certainly a good one to add to your collection.

Definitely 👍

 By: Cpt Scarlet : January 7th, 2024-16:51

Now that’s a target I have considered on and off…

 By: Cpt Scarlet : January 8th, 2024-10:01

Dear Captain and friend, love the theme this weekend! I am not yet sure where I wish to take the collection in 2024 but I do have several new targets in mind. Just in the second half of 2023 ...

Hello dear friend …

 By: Cpt Scarlet : January 6th, 2024-12:17
Quite a lineup of targets for 2024 ! It sounds as though you have already been through the difficult process of selecting watches to release back into the wild 😉 All of the watches under consideration are very nice and it’s difficult to resist any of them...  

Thank you Captain! I agree with you the Speedmaster and the Sub would be good and versatile choices. When are you expecting your 5172?

 By: Chronometer (aka yacomino) : January 6th, 2024-12:42
Re-reading my post it almost feels like I have too many targets in mind. I might need to narrow my focus ))🧘‍♂️

My pleasure…

 By: Cpt Scarlet : January 6th, 2024-16:37
I hope I have been able to help. It’s not an easy choice as you have many options. Definitely the Speedy and Sub on the basis that they are very useable. The PP is just very chic !…. I have no firm delivery date … yet 🤷🏼‍♂️

Have you also considered the 5328G?

 By: Chronometer (aka yacomino) : January 6th, 2024-19:09

5327 G ???

 By: Cpt Scarlet : January 7th, 2024-16:55

Sorry the 5326 G

 By: Chronometer (aka yacomino) : January 7th, 2024-17:55

That sunburst is superb as always!

 By: KCLQMULKU : January 6th, 2024-21:15
Great choices with the last three!!

Thank you my friend!

 By: Chronometer (aka yacomino) : January 6th, 2024-23:20

Now it looks like 2024 will be a strong year for you 👌🏻👍🏻

 By: KMII : January 7th, 2024-12:43
Some very exciting pieces on the horizon 👌🏻👍🏻

Very nice and “already seemingly matured” list.. Speedy & Sub are somewhat obvious utility watches..

 By: hs111 : January 7th, 2024-15:26
.. From the others I can only say from personal experience, that the PP 5172 is a really chic watch with a classic touch ! I love mine and wish you luck in your endeavours ! Best, 😊

Do you want that watch I bought you two years ago??

 By: KURT_DAVID : January 5th, 2024-16:26
😳 Was the question my beloved put to me this Tuesday. WHAT WATCH? I HAVE NOT SEEN ANY WATCH! I showed you some pictures. OH, OK! My other half bought me this watch on an impulse in 2022 after receiving marketing emails from Bucherer. My obviously indignan...  

I know exactly what you mean!

 By: KCLQMULKU : January 6th, 2024-21:19
I too was gifted that same timepiece by a loved one, and it is because of that history that I will always cherish and find it forever beautiful! ...  

How about that! Fantastic!!

 By: KURT_DAVID : January 7th, 2024-09:33
It really is an unexpected delight. In pictures I dismissed it, yet now in the flesh I am captivated with it. Life is odd sometimes. 😀

Heartfelt target …

 By: Cpt Scarlet : January 6th, 2024-22:39
I know how you feel, I have the same mission in life !

That sounds like a good path for the coming year 😁👍🏻

Very nice PRX 👌🏻👍🏻

It will be interesting to see this thread next year!

How close we are to our opinions 🤷‍♂️ For me, I want to add a rose gold colored case. Right now all I have is steel, Ti and WG. Colored gold is a little bright for me, so I will likely start with a Leather strap vs bracelet (a day date in RG olive dial wo...

The white dial explorer has my vote here 😜

I look forward to eating that story my friend!

Even better! I will make note of that :-)))

The red also looks good.

Hello Timeout! It looks that we both are going through similar journey this year. Absolutely agree with your thoughts: we must be prepared to what we will do with our "fredom" time.

 By: Subexplorer : January 6th, 2024-13:04
I have a good idea. I only wish that I will be able to make them reality. Yes, family and friends and traveling are my priority. Let´s enjoy my friend. The best of good luck in your retirement. Abel

Hello dear friend …

But a fully loaded credit card as well 😂 Congratulations on retirement! Seems to be quite a theme for 2024! Sadly still many years away from me 😉 Some fantastic shots, as always, Abel!

Ha ha ha!! Agree! Garlic and a loaded credit card! Lol! Thank you so much for your kind comments and compliments dear KM!

 By: Subexplorer : January 7th, 2024-13:00
Don´t be sad for being far from retirement! I now wish I were young and far from that. Enjoy so much my dear friend. Have a great year dear KM! Best wishes! Abel

Thanks so much for the kind words, Abel!

Quite right.

You can’t own ‘em all! Being satisfied beats being wealthy any day of the week. Enjoy the feeling - even if only temporary 🤣

to all Purists! For me, I'm pretty much content with what I have, so no "must have" targets. Although, from time to time I do think about this watch ... 😊 As of now, I'm still enjoying my last acquisition ... 🍻 ...  

I see a very tempting Lange 👀

 By: S F : January 7th, 2024-08:37
I did not have a SD and found the previous series perhaps too similar in look to the Sub which i have. With the red font on this, it was the deciding factor for me. Wishing you a bountiful 2024 my friend 😉🥂

Now that sounds like…

 By: KMII : January 7th, 2024-12:54
Something that should be normal but sadly is not 😊🤷🏻‍♂️ Who knows, maybe at some point being treated more as a customer might be rediscovered by one or the other brand 😉😂

Two watches may be coming in, kinda surprising. One is inspired by a vintage Omega!

 By: Spangles - Dr. Tabby : January 6th, 2024-22:28
The first is a Pascal Coyon, with a custom dial. The dial is based on this lovely 30mm, 1928-ish Omega I found a picture of online (of a years-ago sold example): The dial will be not an exact replica, but inspired by this one and has been made by Metalem....  

Hello Spangles …

 By: Cpt Scarlet : January 6th, 2024-23:10
The choice of a Pascal Coyon watch is an excellent target to achieve and I would live ti see the finished watch. Good luck with this project. Best regards Captain

Thank you! The dial should arrive early Feb!

Hello dear friend, A Vacheron 1921 in WG would be a very nice choice. It’s a watch that has tempted me several times. I hope you enjoy the M3 Touring when it arrives. Best regards Captain

Thanks so much Captain!

Congratulations on getting your new Rolex. I really like the dial colour and texture. As you say it’s a GADA watch. Travel is a target that I think we can all agree is a good objective for 2024. Best Captain

Congratulations on already starting with the first addition for the year!
