WS Edition “Four Watches - Four Seasons” is Open Now!!

Jul 22, 2022,13:19 PM

Hello friends! I have the pleasure to be your host for this edition starting today Friday 22nd and ending on afternoon of Sunday 24th.

The Theme is "Four Watches - Four Seasons". The challenge is to share with us four watches of your collections which you feel represent the four seasons: Summer, Autumn, Winter and Spring. 
Not necessarily the watch you use more often in each season but the one that due to its design, dial or any other subjective reason you feel better represent them.

In my personal experience while viewing my watches I tend to subjectively associate certain timepieces with a particular Season.
e.g. from my watch box:

Summer: Rolex Submariner
Autumn: Panerai Pam 968 Brown Bronzo
Winter: GS Snow Flake
Spring: Omega Speedmaster Racing dial Japan Edition 2004.

I will explain why I connect each of these watches with the Seasons later and also will be delighted to read our participants explaining their own watch/seasons connections as well as their pictures.

You may begin posting your entries right now in this same thread.

As usual you may participate in one or all of our classic Categories:
Best Wrist Shot
Best Static Shot
Best Watch of the Week

Have a nice weekend dear friends and enjoy so much our event!!
Cheers! Abel

Four good choices …

The Hublot is a perfect companion for Summer.

Hello Adam!! Great post... you played Antonio Vivaldi´s Four Seasons so well!! Beautiful watches you share each connected with a different Season we live.

 By: Subexplorer : July 22nd, 2022-13:58
All of them wonderful... I´m specially fond of your Autumn choice: the Reverso... the dial texture and the date moon phase complication add to the warmth and charm of this fine timepiece. Thank you so much for answering our challenge this weekend! Hagwe! ...

It is the legendary Venturer Big Date with a 10-days handwound movement!

Thank you! 🙏

My Autumn watch: Panerai Pam 968 Bronzo brown dial…

… and brown ceramic bezel insert. I automatically associate the color of its case, dial and bezel with the colors of earth, leaves and tree bark during the Fall Season. Yes, I know it’s a subjective feeling, but this was the idea of the theme of this week...  

Warm, soft patina …

Dear Abel! The colours of the watch reminds me the colours of the fallin leaves from the trees… The watch has so much power and presence on your wrist! Wear it in the best of your health! Truly yours, Adam

Nice theme

 By: Cookies : July 22nd, 2022-14:12

Interesting selection…

 By: Cpt Scarlet : July 24th, 2022-10:13
Which watch would you have chosen instead of your GS ?

Great question

 By: Cookies : July 24th, 2022-10:23
A FF 45mm for 5k more, or Breguet type XXI LE for 6k more . Those options would make me smile so hard. Silly me.

Here are the pics of some candidates

 By: Cookies : July 24th, 2022-10:33
I seldom take pics of watches at ADs…must mean quite a lot to have retained these pics in my phone. The Breguet Type XXI LE in orange or green slipped past. My AD called me if I wanted it, but I passed…(oh my I am the silliest person to do so) Panerai pic...

Hi Abel. Here are my choices in the words of the song …. winter, spring, summer and fall!

Outstanding choices Timeout!! Thank you for your great entry.

Not easy to choose just one Season among them: the Voutilainen makes me feel those long Winter nights. No need to tell you about my love for the CDV Vacheron which I also own. Lovely Spring watch. Stunning Moser dial catching Summer rays! And the FP Journ... 

Many thanks Abel

 By: Timeout : July 22nd, 2022-15:54
The CDV is quite the “strap monster”! I particularly like the way that Vacheron take a notch out of the leather on one side of the spring bar end which makes it easier to get the spring bar tool into place. As well as the original Serapian strap that came...  

Viewing your shots and straps combos I must agree with you that the CDV is a "strap monster" indeed. The Serapian OEM straps are very well made and classy. I didn´t notice ...

Thanks Abel.

 By: Timeout : July 22nd, 2022-20:05
Here’s a photo of the grey Vacheron strap showing the notch. The Serapian strap does not have this feature, but all of the Vacheron straps - either calfskin or alligator backed - do. ...  

Hello dear Timeout! Thank you so much for taking your time…

Very cool green strap…

Looking good 👍

Thanks Captain

 By: Timeout : July 24th, 2022-14:52
Can’t go wrong with this dial. Thinking of getting a burgundy one also

Sounds good 👍

Many thanks HS

Good to see your selection for this week too. JLC doesn’t always get the attention it deserves - your choices are spectacular- and the Habring is a real beauty!

Bravo ! …

Beautiful choices !

My Winter watch: Grand Seiko Snowflake…

 By: Subexplorer : July 22nd, 2022-15:12
… I find the texture and color of this watch fascinating. Seiko has a knack for making stunning dials. This one makes me feel they magically put some snow there. What a better representation of Winter among the watches in my watch box? ...  

I love the Snowflake !

My Summer watch: Rolex Submariner

 By: Subexplorer : July 22nd, 2022-17:32
My personal connection of Summer with watches is made through a diver’s watch as most of my Summers vacations are spent near the sea and the whole season near a pool. Though I love to wear different dive watches in my collection my favorite is the Submari...

Terrific photos Captain,

especially the Omega Speedmaster: I can feel the mood of Autumn, the colour of the fallin leaves matching perfectly to the Moonshine gold! And the Mercedes 300 SL! Is it also yours?? Adam

Thank you Adam …

 By: Cpt Scarlet : July 23rd, 2022-17:16
The Moonshine gives me a lot of pleasure. The 300 was until a couple of years ago. Best regards Captain

It’s an interesting watch …

 By: Cpt Scarlet : July 24th, 2022-10:47
Have you had this one for long ?

I picked the case material and dial color back in February 2021, and our watch club took delivery of the 10 pieces in December 2021.

 By: Lankysudanese : July 24th, 2022-11:11
It exceeded our expectations. I pushed for including Flyback functionality but…

Sounds a good club !

With the stunning dial.

Thanks Cookies

 By: Brandon Skinner : July 24th, 2022-15:13
Patrik has informed me the Ice Blue is one of the hardest to achieve due to the large surface area of the dial and very short window of time to keep the metal heated before the color changes again.

I like your collection

 By: Cookies : July 25th, 2022-09:42
It has some outliers which old alumni would experiment with, not mainstream, and so unique. I recall the days when this forum discussed about Nubeo, Fears, Dent, Bathys, Sarpaneva, Romain Jerome and obscure brands which are so exciting. Now it is mostly t... 

Hello Brandon! I´m happy to know you liked the theme and having your entry. Thank you for sharing your four Seasons watches!

 By: Subexplorer : July 24th, 2022-13:33
Four beautiful watches: you can never go wrong with Seiko/Grand Seiko. The red dial on the SBGH269 is stunning. This watch is in my wish list and will get in my nets sooner or later. Fabulous Mokume dial on your GoS Sarek. It makes for an awesome presence... 

Thanks Abel
