Hello dear friends ! I have the great pleasure of hosting our WristScan theme “Style Icons” is now live ! Our theme is all about our stylish watches that for many have become iconic. Sometimes this can be the trigger that connects us with a watch and add ...  

Style and influence …

 
 By: Cpt Scarlet : September 3rd, 2021-12:18
Just to start us off for this edition of WristScan, I’m posting a couple of Style Icons … Buzz Aldrin, what more do I need to say … Johnny Hallyday, was a French rock and roll and pop singer and actor, credited for having brought rock and roll to France… ...

Top of my list is Steve. While i am not influenced by style icons, Steve is from a category out of space. I think he was cool and funny too. The stories about his watches and girlfriends are mind boggling. The drive carefully inscription is legendary. The...

and that’s an excellent shot for our Static Shot category. Have you had this Sub for long in your collection ? Well played and thank you for joining us on WristScan.

Thx, Cpt!

 
 By: Stoikos : September 3rd, 2021-15:45
It’s the Sub’s big brother, the 126600. I bought it in 2017.

Good move ! …

How did I miss that special touch of red !

Welcome to WS Stoikos!! Sean Connery is definitively…

Thx, Subexplorer!

 
 By: Stoikos : September 3rd, 2021-18:14
Connery is legend. My watch is the 50th Anniv. Sea Dweller, but close enough, especially when paired with the Bond NATO!🍸

My big pleasure Stoikos!

 
 By: Subexplorer : September 3rd, 2021-20:59
The “red” SD is an awesome timepiece. Of course the Submariner/SD family can be associated with Bond. Never seen this particular model in other thing than the original Oyster (I also own this watch) but I feel the Bond Nato is a very interesting option to... 

Hmmmm....

May I add another icon who inspires me?

 
 By: Subexplorer : September 3rd, 2021-21:08
Not only my Hero but also inspires me to wear more than one watch at same time!! (I confess I often wear a watch on each wrist though never openly) Cheers! Abel ...

The Rolex 5512 is a knockout ! Well played Abel !!

Thank you so much for your kind comments dear Captain.

Glad you like that old Sub. Not in the best shape outside but its movement keeps working … as a Rolex! In spite of its 61 years of hard work. Hagwe my dear friend! Abel

Right! Bravo!

Gruen …

 
 By: Cpt Scarlet : September 4th, 2021-08:32
Rare to see this watch and I think it could possibly be the first time on WristScan. Thanks for sharing it with us on WristScan.

You are right Shemmir. That is really the first Connery/Bond watch. Not easy to identify during the first scenes of Dr No but there it was before his Submariner was evident later.

 
 By: Subexplorer : September 4th, 2021-13:07
Thank you so much for your participation and for bringing it here and share with us your nice example! Cheers and Hagwe! Abel

The VH is a wonderful watch. Well played Watchonthewrist. I hope you have a great weekend.

You share three iconic Independents dear Watchonthewrist!

 
 By: Subexplorer : September 3rd, 2021-23:01
I’m specially fond of the VH though I would be very happy with any of the three on my wrist. 😉 Keep enjoying them so much my friend! Hagwe!! Abel

The shape of the Roth

this is very iconic

I admire Pierce Brosnan

 
 By: Cookies : September 4th, 2021-02:28
Growing up in the 90’s, his character in 007 was filled with flamboyance, working with women sidekicks, and style. I admired my dad too. He was a sportsman, who wore a two-tone Omega Seamaster 200. The watch is not in a good condition anymore, and I have ...  

Thanks Nico

 
 By: Cookies : September 4th, 2021-07:18
Lighter I bought earlier this year. I was just fixing shoes at the cobbler and noticed he sold this Zippo 007 too. I’m very happy with the trimetal. Will try to put it on a rubber strap in a couple of days time. Have a good day Nico.

Tantalum!

 
 By: Cookies : September 4th, 2021-07:36
Surprisingly the piece is very light. I just took the bracelet off, and swapped it for the rubber strap for a swim.=D ...  

What I was hoping! :)))

 
 By: amanico : September 4th, 2021-07:55

Great sentiment …

 
 By: Cpt Scarlet : September 4th, 2021-08:35
Congratulations on getting this Omega with all the memories that it brings with it. I like the watch and it definitely reminds me of the Brosnan style. The lighter looks interesting. Best regards Captain

Thanks Captain

 
 By: Cookies : September 4th, 2021-08:50
Whenever I see your post, a song sticks in my head “No Limits”. That tune is impossible to forget.

Great post Cookies! Agree with you about the Bond of Brosnan. Horologicaly speaking he introduced the Omega in the franchise. There is an interesting video interview to Jean Claude Biver explaining...

 
 By: Subexplorer : September 4th, 2021-13:29
.... how the Omega Seamaster came to be the "official" timepiece of James Bond. I was very touched with your reference to your Dad. I can fully understand your feelings and it is so nice you keep those memories of him and his favorite watch. You did well ... 

Thanks Abel

 
 By: Cookies : September 4th, 2021-13:37
Yes, I will wear it often, in good and bad times too. They represent more than time or luxury, but concentrated totems of emotions and moments which cannot come back.

Memories and iconic designs. Perfect combination.

 
 By: brauner : September 5th, 2021-06:01
Would like to share such memories.

=D

 
 By: Cookies : September 5th, 2021-07:50
Thanks Brauner. How was your weekend? Mine was quite uneventful and boring - lockdown and curfews here.

Everything ok here. I am on my way to Geneva right away

 
 By: brauner : September 5th, 2021-08:37
Not for watches but for business reasons. I hope there will be some time for watches. On my way back I will go to Bvlgari in Neuemburg to take a watch to service. I think not that boring🥴

Sounds fun!

 
 By: Cookies : September 5th, 2021-16:09

Welcome terbaboom …

 
 By: Cpt Scarlet : September 4th, 2021-22:09
This classic Omega Bullhead definitely qualifies. The world has changed with the demise of very formal clothing in offices. Come to think of it …who needs an office 😬 Have a great weekend !

thanks, Captain!

 
 By: terbaboom : September 5th, 2021-14:49
so true... my office has actually done away with formal business attire, except when there're important meetings enjoy the rest of the weekend!

 By: terbaboom : September 5th, 2021-14:53

You have your own style and in my opinion that’s a good thing in life. Interesting to hear about Steve G and his influence on your collection. The Longines 30CH is certainly a special watch. The Omega 1894 is a stunning watch. Best regards Cap
