WristScan Live - Weekend Watches

Aug 05, 2022,14:02 PM
 


Hello dear friends, 

We are now live for this edition of WristScan !

Our theme is all about “Weekend Watches” and why we choose them. This could be for many different reasons, relaxing, less formality, sports or for a night on the town !

Share a Wrist Shot and a Static Shot if you can, of the watches you choose for this weekend and tell us a little about your watch choices. Feel free to include any accessories or clothing, but please no unnecessary nudity ! :-0

If you would like any further information about WristScan, our weekly community event a guide is available via this link:  www.watchprosite.com

Friendly Competition  

Three categories are available for you to enter your photos under, giving you three opportunities to win or be given an honourable mention. They are:


Watch Of The Week

This category will be judged by the host of WristScan and is awarded to the watch that the host believes, best represents the WristScan theme. Watch value is not the decisive factor !


Best Wrist Scan

Judged to be the best photograph of a watch on a wrist entered. 


Best Static Shot

Judged to be the best photograph of a static watch, (not on a wrist) entered. 


The winners of each category are announced in a “Judges Verdict” thread posted on Sunday at approximately 17:00 GMT. 


Please keep in mind that the emphasis is on joining in, having fun and it’s a great way to support our community.
Looking forward to seeing your photos and comments.

Best regards and thank you for joining us !

1. I absolutely love it. 2. It's the only 'higher-end' piece I have at the moment.... Thanks Cap! Filip ...  

Straight into the weekend Filip ….

I see you decided on the JLC to start your weekend. Very cool. Will you be changing watches throughout the weekend ?

Yes!

 
 By: InHavenPro : August 5th, 2022-15:16
Most of the time I'll alternate between this one and the PPro ABR during the weekends. I'll snap a wristshot of the ABR in case I get the chance.... Cheers Cap, Filip

Thanks Filip…

 
 By: Cpt Scarlet : August 5th, 2022-16:00
I would love to see your other weekend watches if you have the opportunity. Thanks for joining us.

I'll make sure that's the case!

 
 By: InHavenPro : August 5th, 2022-20:00
Thank you Abel, likewise!

Yves, I like your choice …

 
 By: Cpt Scarlet : August 5th, 2022-16:07
Including the Aston DB5 has my attention. Love your first photo, good composition ! Will you be changing watches over the weekend ?

Thank you.

Unless my son wishes to wear it, I might give some wrist time to my 226570 (black dial). However, in Summer time, I feel that wearing a light timepiece is more appropriate than SS.

Very true …

 
 By: Cpt Scarlet : August 5th, 2022-23:08
Summertime changes our choice of watch. I usually go for mor sports and diving watches… ...  

G23 Titanium

 
 By: Cookies : August 5th, 2022-16:50
A radically new outlook for the Bathyscaphe. Love the photos! Stealth it is.

Yes Yves

 
 By: Cookies : August 6th, 2022-03:31
My favourite piece. I wear it 24/7. The mechanism is so good! Oh yes I was just watching a video of a deconstruction of a ceramic bathyscaphe. Did not know they use a metal keeper ring for the movement in the 43mm versions. It could mean this calibre 1315... 

Hmmhh, dear Cpt & friends.. Let me see, what to chip in to play..

 
 By: hs111 : August 5th, 2022-16:32
😉😉 The Breguet Marine 5817 - casual or a bit fancy, love her central Guilloche & the big date.. This is one I love to look down Several yrs ago, but also chosen for a WE (Verso side), in a friend’s garden Reverso Duo Face, GMT - Recto side; often make...

Wow hs ! …

 
 By: Cpt Scarlet : August 5th, 2022-17:09
That’s a great weekend you lined up… Covering all bases. You can’t go wrong with the LeCoultre TT DSA Amerique on your wrist. Thank you for joining us again this weekend.

Beautiful shots as usual dear friend HS! And great choices for your weekend. May be you´ll need to do same like me: double wristing!! That´s a way to enjoy all these beauties...

 
 By: Subexplorer : August 5th, 2022-19:24
... along the weekend! Lol! (Ahh! That Breguet and Blancpain FF always keep me drooling!) Have a beautiful weekend and enjoy these superb timepieces so much my dear friend. Best, Abel

Hello, my friend Abel !.. How nice you again found time for your as always kind looking !

 
 By: hs111 : August 6th, 2022-05:08
Hmmhh.. Double wristing.. May elaborate on such an idea.. Also HAGWE and greetings from our summer here !! Cheers & Best !

My pleasure 🙏

 
 By: Cpt Scarlet : August 6th, 2022-16:34

Wow… Congratulations !!!

 
 By: Cpt Scarlet : August 5th, 2022-23:14
The Chronoscope in gold/bronze is a very special Omega. I love how the sub dials look with this dial and case. Enjoy this special watch my dear friend.

Ahh my friend! I feel you’ll like it.

 
 By: Subexplorer : August 6th, 2022-16:24
I personally find the bronze completely different personality than the steel ones which are very nice too. But this one is very special for my taste. Look forward to know your thoughts after you view it! Cheers! Abel

Interestingly…

 
 By: Cpt Scarlet : August 6th, 2022-16:35
At the launch it was the only version not available to view.

Dear Abel, congrats on the Chronoscope!

 
 By: S F : August 6th, 2022-11:12

Aye aye Captain

 
 By: Cookies : August 6th, 2022-01:13
My daily wear is usually the Bathyscaphe. I wear this to sleep too. Today I wear my favourite weekend driving shoe, the Tod’s Gommino in plain black. Weekend is pretty boring. Going to do some manual labour tomorrow. ...  

Welcome aboard Cookies ! …

 
 By: Cpt Scarlet : August 6th, 2022-09:23
Nice wrist shot… Your Bathyscaphe catches the sunlight and looks very cool. How long have you had this one ?

Hey Cap

 
 By: Cookies : August 6th, 2022-09:29
Nice to hear from you. I got this last year if my memory serves me right. I took a risk and bought it during the lockdown from the AD. Never tried it on, and just went with my gut feel, and also asking Justin for his feedback during that time. Beautiful d... 

Good to hear your thoughts …

 
 By: Cpt Scarlet : August 6th, 2022-09:48
I viewed and tried this range of Seamasters at the launch and was suitably impressed with the colour choice and the finishing. The blue and the green dial versions were my favourites.

Fortis Marinemaster 8001

 
 By: Ruffian : August 6th, 2022-01:41
I've been itching to wear this the whole week, but I'm usually in formal wear Mondays to Fridays. So it's a dash of colour and some 70s vibes for Saturday morning! ...  

A dash of sporting colour …

 
 By: Cpt Scarlet : August 6th, 2022-09:26
Perfect vintage vibe for the weekend. Have you had this Fortis for long ?

Good call 👍

 
 By: Cpt Scarlet : August 7th, 2022-16:50

Same as last weekend

Blue Seamaster …

 
 By: Cpt Scarlet : August 6th, 2022-09:29
Such a good looking and flexible watch, covering any occasion. Fits your wrist very well. Can you tell us anything more about how you are enjoying it ?

Thanks Cpt!

 
 By: Aquaracer1 : August 6th, 2022-12:28
Extremely accurate, completely versatile and superb value. The bonus is the perfect fitting 38.5 mm size on my wrist and of course the interesting movement I can stare at through the back. Several years ago I owned the “Skyfall,” then eventually owned thi...

This came on Friday, just in time for the weekend

 
 By: NT931 : August 6th, 2022-08:39
If ever there was a weekend watch, this would be it! A modded Casio G-shock “CasiOak” , with a dial with Murakami flowers. Fun, colorful, and ready for any weekend activities, whether sedate or sporty! ...  

This one has made me smile ! …

 
 By: Cpt Scarlet : August 6th, 2022-09:37
Hello NT, I love your choice, fun all the way and we all need to relax and have some fun with our choice of watch occasionally. It’s very easy to get over serious about our watch choices. Perfect for a summer weekend. Will you change at some point this we...

Wish u’d keep that in your collection forever. Wish I had been in time to get that beautiful piece.

Haha, very good 👍 …

 
 By: Cpt Scarlet : August 6th, 2022-14:55
and a well matched combo for the weekend. The blued hands add a nice touch of colour.

Hi Captain

 
 By: Timeout : August 7th, 2022-11:10
I picked this up in January 2021 when they released the new 3861 movement and the redesigned bracelet. I’d not owned a Moonwatch up to this point but these changes were sufficient for me to jump in. I haven’t been disappointed - this is undoubtedly the mo...
