WristScan Session 1st of March 2019: The watch which brings you luck.

Feb 28, 2019,03:03 AM
 

We recently have the watches which you find by luck, now let's see watches which bring you luck. 


I am a bit superstitious and I can bet I am not the only one, here... wink 

When I have tough challenges to face, I always bring these watches with me: 

Rolex 6542: 








The Tornek Rayville is a good fighter, too: 





The Jaeger Lecoultre Amvox IIP and the Minute Repeater are quite good, at the Court.









The Montblanc 1858 Tachymeter, which is on my wrist right now, is a good player.





Up to you to post, friends. 

Best,

Nicolas

I usually stay at either the Wynn fairway villas or Encore 2 Bed apartment, depending on my mood. Lol.

 
 By: drg : March 1st, 2019-05:46
I will be taking my staff for a vacation soon to Vegas, so probably the Encore.

I may think this is my lucky watch:

everything started a little more than 30 years ago with this watch! And my passion for watches is still like when I was just a boy... It has a special place in my heart. Nice thread Nico! massi ...  

Thanks for another nice theme this week Nico, and I like the reminder in your Montblanc composition -- watches and driving are indeed two of the big pleasures in life! :-)

I probably don't believe in good or bad luck, so let me just play it simple with a shot I took this week of this simple and reliable Rolex...It's a generally happy semester and he's going to be one of my two daily beaters for a couple more months, so mayb...

Great point.

 
 By: zabreg1 Mr White : February 28th, 2019-10:23
I know that fist can cause luck to happen to you. Canโ€™t be said about others, though. Hahahaha

The best wristshot I have ever seen. LOL

 
 By: RG1 : February 28th, 2019-14:45

Yes, this one is very special. Especially in that condition. I have quite a few. BBโ€™s are too good to be left alone. We all know their importance both as seminal watches but also historically in the collecting world. Their downturn in popularity was too g...

Don't know about any actual luck the Tornek brings

 
 By: minutehand : March 1st, 2019-04:46
But I do know that I would feel that I was a very lucky man to be wearing one on my wrist. What a great watch with a great story behind it. Anyone know what the official Navy Seals watch is now days?

Very early in my career, someone was describing my performance and they told me...."You have been lucky. You need to be good rather than lucky." 15 years later I got the chance to meet the same guy who had said that to me, except this time I was on the ot...  

Maybe a Karma watch?

Iโ€™d love to play, but I donโ€™t believe in a lucky watch.

 
 By: Arie - Mr Orange : March 1st, 2019-14:26
I am not a superstitious man at all. So what I can do is post a watch I wore during a happy time, and luckily there are many but Iโ€™ll post a fresh one: The always lovely and underestimated Milgauss. ...

I can only agree with Joe, I don't know if it's a lucky watch but I am sure I am so lucky to own it...

The one I have dreamed of over 20 years and thinking it will remain a dream forever until I get one : my grail the Wonder Watch ! (I promise Joe I did not copy you but it is not my fault if we have the same good taste ! Hahaha !) ...  

Well played my friend . Its a gorgeous watch .

 
 By: Watchonthewrist : March 2nd, 2019-00:28
You must feel lucky to be able to strap it on your wrist sometimes ๐Ÿ˜‰

Like many of you i dont believe in a lucky watch

 
 By: Watchonthewrist : March 2nd, 2019-00:45
I do believe that you can be lucky to meet great people through a watch . Like i am lucky to have meet some of you during great GTGs Or when you are able to buy a grail watch from a very nice and humble fellow forum member ...  

What a beautiful set of watches on that table!
