WristScan’s weekend of 9 March THEME will be about IGNORED pieces.

Mar 06, 2019,04:45 AM

Yes it is a sad subject. It is a gloomy day over here that dampened my mood and made me think of sad things. Ignored things. Ignored loves. Once coveted and adored, now in the back of our safe or drawers...

So this weekend theme I will ask you to search the dark places of your vault for the forgotten pieces. The once loved but now ignored watches in your life.

Retrieve them. Get reacquainted. Rekindle your old love. Court them. Wind them up. Make them tick once more. Wear them again and let them shine!

My first Rolex love. Left abandoned in a safe for way to long.

Took it with me on holiday and now the love is back with a vengeance. Glued to the wrist since a week.

So I’ll start the thread tomorrow. GET READY and rekindle your lost loves!
