Wristscan SUMMER VIBES is now LIVE

Apr 29, 2022,11:02 AM


Dear fellow purist, we would like to know what are your summer vibes?  It could be that summer watch you are wearing mostly in warmer weather, or any summer combos you enjoy!  What are exactly is summer combos?  Well it could be that nice Martini by the pool, or that nice cigar with a scotch, or in my case a game of golf with the family, and on and on!  Of course, it could also be a daring strap combo with your favorite summer watch smile)) 

We look forward to seeing your summer vibes entries!  I will be back later to provide a few examples of my own!

A special thanks to our Captain for his help on the poster for the event!

Cheers!  Chronometer

Of course during the warmer months it is time to enjoy some nice drinks... Of course for me its also time to enjoy one of my passion: Golf! Of course during the summer months i do enjoy some more colorful watch combo and also tend to gravitate toward slig...  

Tremendous combos of straps and watches …

I like the sunlight's infiltration of the dial. Superb!

Flamboyant shirts are one of my little ways to celebrating life. As for the Moonshine I absolutely love it ! Have a great weekend my dear friend.

In that case you must celebrate a lot :-)))

Very nice photos !

Hello dear friend HS! Always enjoy so much viewing your signature collage shots. They are truly post cards of beautiful places and watches.

 By: Subexplorer : April 30th, 2022-17:08
You know we share a few watches all of them lovely. But you always leave me drooling when you show your FF! A killer!! I´m surprised to see your Tjikko watch which I don´t remember viewing before. Also I´m not familiar with this brand. Is that a new catch... 

Hello, Abel !.. Thx for your kind & positive comments, well appreciated !

 By: hs111 : May 1st, 2022-10:58
As far as the Tjikko watch is concerned, it’s just a little, low-key Manufacture shop in Cape Town, SA which does wooden cases from all kinds of woods; they just are putting simple Chinese Quarz movements inside. (Pretty reliable these are but nothing fan... 

Hello dear friend HS! Always my pleasure to view and comment your posts. Interesting to read your explanation about the Tjikko watch. It´s always nice to have at hand some low key but attractive ...

... watches to be used in certain circumstances. Thank you for your clarification about this interesting watch. Thank you for your good wishes for next week and same to you my dear friend. Best cordial regards, Abel

The ABP makes for an excellent summer watch!

 By: KMII : May 1st, 2022-06:29
I often wear it in summer, too. All your other choices are very apropos, too 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 ...  

Hello, K !.. Thx for your comment & your own chip-in !

And you are right, it’s a true “GADA”- watch (Go Anywhere, Do Anything).. Have a relaxed remaining Sunday and a good week to come ! Best to you & yours ! hs

Can’t wait for the summer to arrive 🙏🏻🤗

 By: Watchonthewrist : April 29th, 2022-15:03
Already took a couple of bracelet and rubber straps watches out of the safe incase the 🌞 will start doing his thing soon 🙏🏻😎 HAGWE 🤗 ...  

Thanks my friend, yes they are from RubberB

 By: Watchonthewrist : April 29th, 2022-19:01
I like the BB58s on a rubber strap .

Looks cool!

 By: Chronometer (aka yacomino) : April 29th, 2022-19:17

Tudor on RubberB …

 By: Cpt Scarlet : April 29th, 2022-21:40
It’s a good look 👍

Nice choices for your Summer Watchonthewrist. I´m in love with your Staudt with Arab markings and that salmon dial. Fantastic. The Tudor BB is a great company on the wrist...

 By: Subexplorer : April 30th, 2022-17:12
... for Summer, specially if spent in seaside places. It´s one of my favorite watches for my holidays by the sea which has accompanied me many times. Enjoy your Summer so much! Hagwe! Abel

Thank you for your kind words dear Abel

 By: Watchonthewrist : April 30th, 2022-18:46
I agree about the BB58s . Perfect beach watches . I always bring one or two with me when on holiday

My big pleasure Watchonthewrist! I´m very fond of my Tudors BB, be it the first version red bezel 41 mm the Bronzo model and my BB58 black bezel. I prefer the 58 size though as it looks more vintage.

 By: Subexplorer : April 30th, 2022-21:48
Both variants have shown me to be very reliable and practical watches. Agree they are perfect beach watches. Great choice! Best cordial regards, Abel

Those combinations make me want to head straight for the beach 🏖

 By: KMII : May 1st, 2022-06:32
And your watch themed towels / swim trunks are epic 👌🏻 The one watch I expected in your lineup was the Vehetinen - a great summer choice, too 👍🏻

The SUF is on a leather strap and in the summer I hardly wear a leather strap tbh

 By: Watchonthewrist : May 1st, 2022-20:50
I pref a rubber strap or bracelet when its hot outside 😉

Cool Summer shots Hans 😎

Finally some ice cream 🍨

 By: KMII : May 1st, 2022-06:33
Great combinations and adding strawberries and ice cream is the proverbial cherry on top 🍒

Most guys hang out by the pool summertime. I prefer . . .

. . . playing pool. 🎱 ...  

No need for sun screen 😎

No need for . . .

 By: Dr No : April 30th, 2022-15:16
. . . a dive watch, either. Now you know why I don't have one.


 By: Chronometer (aka yacomino) : April 30th, 2022-15:22

Always amazed viewing your wizardry at pool dear Art!! No need to wear sombrero, sun screen or dive watch here!! Though I wonder if you have ever considered a vintage Omega diving...

 By: Subexplorer : April 30th, 2022-17:50
... watch like the Omega Seamaster 300 as an addition to your collection? Beautiful GS you share here. Love these videos! Keep them coming my dear friend. A big hug for you. Hagwe! Abel

My shots are more than matched by my pal's . . .

 By: Dr No : April 30th, 2022-19:39
. . . efforts, Abel. We keep trying to out-do the other, which is why we keep improving. As for diving Seamasters, I'm especially fond of pre-Bonds, and might end up with one under the right circumstances. Warmest, Art

Wow!! That´s a serious contender!! I can well imagine there is a lot of practice of both you and your pal behind this!! How nice!

 By: Subexplorer : April 30th, 2022-21:43
A pre Bond is a very interesting timepiece and not commonly seen. I wish you´ll find yours some day soon! Cheers! Abel

Well, I just added another piece to my vintage Omega collection . . .

 By: Dr No : April 30th, 2022-21:46
. . . so probably not any time soon, but a steel mid-size pre-Bond and a certain Constellation are still on my want-to-have list. Art

Yes, I can understand you. But we all have a wish list with watches we want to own. It takes time but stars align sometimes. I wonder which variant of Constellation...

 By: Subexplorer : April 30th, 2022-21:56
... (that "certain Connie") you have on your list. Knowing you I guess it´s a very special variant

That would be the grey dial Connie destined for Japan . . .

 By: Dr No : April 30th, 2022-22:22
. . . in the late '60s. [photo credit of Ω ref 168.025: eBay listing] A limited number* made in three distinct models, two gold-capped black dial versions and this grey two-tone dial in solid steel. They don't come up often, and when they do they're usual...  

Same here!! ;)

 By: Subexplorer : May 1st, 2022-00:50

I would be open to either of the two yellow gold capped versions . . .

 By: Dr No : May 1st, 2022-16:37
[ref 168.025 credit: davudvl / photo credit: Dr No] . . . but steel case with two-tone grey dial would be my preference. Art ...  

According to a few website entries it's 34 mm . . .

 By: Dr No : May 1st, 2022-17:00
. . . likely without the crown. The cushion case gives it a bit of added presence on the wrist; I've had David's on mine and it wore impressively well. Art

That GS 😋

 By: KMII : May 1st, 2022-06:34
While summers are not high beat affairs this watch is never wrong 👏🏻👌🏻

Alas, no timepiece

 By: enjoythemusic : April 29th, 2022-21:34
Yet am enjoying my time. ...  

That works too! Enjoy your evening my friend!

Thank you! :)

Thank you!

 By: KCLQMULKU : April 30th, 2022-22:56
It is an amazing city and so vast and historic. Cycling is the best way to see all the nooks and crannies. Of course living seconds away from the tube network means getting anywhere from work to pleasure is even quicker.

Loving the strap on your Speedmaster …

 By: Cpt Scarlet : April 30th, 2022-17:45
They sold out very quickly with all the money going to the Red Cross for Ukraine. Well done 👏 👏👏

Many thanks!

 By: KCLQMULKU : April 30th, 2022-17:58
It was good to receive updates regarding the total funds and when it was sent over to the RC. I am still surprised that Omega does not have this on their website, considering they have many other countries' flags.

Yes, I agree …

 By: Cpt Scarlet : April 30th, 2022-18:14
It’s a good cause to support.

G-Shocks are great expendable tool watches

 By: KCLQMULKU : April 30th, 2022-23:00
But the speedmaster is something else. As an enthusiast I feel that it was important to own (as is a Patek)! Rolex, well, I did own, but I am trying to get back into the fold, though these waiting lists are pain. (

Agree with you about the Speedy. You know how fan I am of this watch under any variant vintage or modern. But I guess a G-Shock is a better choice for biking. I wouldn´t like to...

 By: Subexplorer : May 1st, 2022-01:02
... subject my Speedy to the vibrations of riding the bike. Probably no problem in the city but if riding off road things get worst for any mechanical watch I feel.

Lovely pictures of great times my friend! Your picture of the PAM is just superb! I also love these DOXA by the sea!

That last shot is amazing!

 By: KCLQMULKU : April 30th, 2022-19:38
Never noticed that Bulova before. 👍

Very nice!

 By: KCLQMULKU : April 30th, 2022-22:54
This is very different to their current range, and one I do like!

Thank you!

Great shots in here, Abel!

 By: Stoikos : April 30th, 2022-23:48
My favs are the JLC on the mirrored black surface, Sea-Dweller & Corona, pink Doxa with turquoise sea (!), and that cool Bulova with the angled sea disappearing behind it!!

Hagwe 🍻

You are welcome! Well… as long as all watches…

 By: Subexplorer : May 2nd, 2022-14:53

Thks dear Abel…my sentiment too…

 By: S F : May 1st, 2022-06:18
The steel versions are colorful and modern esp on metal bracelet. However, the bronze gold with the brown dial is the one that exudes vintage charm. Hope you get to see it soon! 🍻

Absolutely agree. Love the vintage vibes of the bronze gold/brown dial combo! Guess it will take some time for new models to arrive here considering the economic crisis we are going through in ...
