WS edition of WS for Friday March 1st is Open Now! Theme is “Keep It Simple!”

Mar 01, 2024,12:42 PM

Hello dear friends!

Our classic event WS is open now!

I have the pleasure of hosting this weekend event and the theme asks participants to share their “KIS” watches: “Keep It Simple” watches.

We all love Chronographs, World Timers, Annual and Perpetual Calendars or even Repeaters and we have explored them in previous WS editions. 

This weekend will be devoted to no complication timepieces which I call "Keep It Simple" watches, just hours and minutes and may be with a seconds hand and with a date window acceptable. No more.

These no complicated watches we usually wear in daily  basis and bring us great satisfaction and practical use just "telling time" with a lot of charm.

You may post your entries now in this same thread!!

This event will end on Sunday night and Judges will be posting their veredicts for each category on Monday 4th.

As usual we have the classic categories:
Best Static shot
Best Wrist Shot
And the more recent category: classic/vintage with our Honorable Art (Dr. No) doing the judging.

All watches shared during the event will compete in the “Best Watch of the Week” category.

I wish all participants will enjoy a great and relaxed weekend!!

Best cordial regards

 By: Cpt Scarlet : March 1st, 2024-13:58
Hello dear friend ! Tremendous photos and some cool “KIS” watches to start the WristScan theme this weekend. In the words of Arnold Alois Schwarzenegger …. I’ll be back 😎

Agreed with you on Panerai..... A couple of others.... Enjoy your weekend! ...  

Thank you so much dear S F for your kind comments on my choices and for sharing these additional beautiful KIS watches in your collection.

That GS dial is so sweet

 By: Chronometer (aka yacomino) : March 2nd, 2024-13:00

I love this dial design

 By: Chronometer (aka yacomino) : March 2nd, 2024-17:16

That Rancho... wow!

 By: j.jota : March 1st, 2024-21:05

Wow, dear Abel.. As expected you show a nice portfolio.. I specifically like the first two Panerais.. but also..

 By: hs111 : March 3rd, 2024-09:59
.. your Reverso TT1931 (a reference we share); the IWC Ingenieur for sure is a pleasure to see and wear ! Last but not least I also liked your early Rolex KIS specimens, such as the Ranchero & DJ examples, especially tha last Datejust pic of your series, ... 

Hello my dear friend HS for your kind comments on my choices and I appologize for my late answer to you and my hosting as I lacked Internet connection during whole Sunday.

 By: Subexplorer : March 4th, 2024-15:11
I´m happy to know you liked my choices to open the KIS watch event and I´m always thankful for your so kind comments on my posts. I wish you enjoyed your weekend and will have a nice week ahead. Best cordial regards, Abel.

Now that's keeping things simple: 

 By: Volney. : March 3rd, 2024-10:41
No need to chose a watch, as each one is to be kept!

Hello Abel,

 By: KURT_DAVID : March 1st, 2024-13:56
Thanks for hosting this month and great theme BTW. Here’s a few from the archives and also something from Mrs K… HAGWE 🍻 ...  

Hello dear Kurt! Thank you so much for your great entry. My big pleasure to host this weekend. Lovely patina on your BB Tudor bronzo.

 By: Subexplorer : March 1st, 2024-14:58
This is a great watch. I own the brown dial version and enjoy it so much too. Great underwater shot. And a lovely contribution from Mrs. K and her OP Rolex which epitomizes the KIS watch concept. Hagwe! Abel

Fairly simple, apart from the "Grand Complication", the date window ;-)

 By: HSTE : March 1st, 2024-14:33
Audemars Piguet Royal Oak ref. 5402, here the A-3x from June 15, 1972 Cheers, HSTE ...  

Wow dear HSTE ! That´s a wonderful example of a KIS watch. It´s lacking of seconds hands compensate the date window appearance here. Lol! And you are sharing...

 By: Subexplorer : March 1st, 2024-15:03
... a superb example of the watch watch which started the Royal Oak Legend! The dial patina adds to its charm and interest of this timeless design. Keep enjoying it so much and thank you so much for sharing. Hagwe! Abel

Thank you, Abel!

 By: HSTE : March 1st, 2024-15:07
Enjoy the weekend!

A classic !

 By: Cpt Scarlet : March 2nd, 2024-23:00
Good to see this one 👍

A few images I’ve posted before, sorry, no energy to take new photos today.

 By: Emil Wojcik : March 1st, 2024-14:48
Some of my simpler watches, with the JD Grande Heure Minute being about as simple as you can get, not only in function but design. ...  

Thank you so much for your entry Emil! Always a pleasure to view your shots. Don´t worry if you have posted pictures before. We sometimes need to draw upon our HD´s pictures...

 By: Subexplorer : March 1st, 2024-15:11
... to participate in WS as not always have the time needed to shoot special pictures around the Theme. You share some wonderful timepieces here (and details or no less wonderful cars of course). Love your AP KIS watch and of course both of your superb JD... 

Nice pair 👍

Hours. Minutes.

 By: Ivo22 : March 1st, 2024-16:49
This one was granted some wrist time lately. A pleasure to wear and to look at. Thank you for this weeks topic. Best, Ivo ...  

You are welcome!!

 By: Subexplorer : March 2nd, 2024-15:21


 By: Ivo22 : March 2nd, 2024-07:40

Thank you, it‘s a 19 sadly

 By: Ivo22 : March 2nd, 2024-22:23
tapering down to 16 at the buckle. But the watch comes with a second strap (dark blue croc, like usual croc leather lined). Best, Ivo

I wish they were 20mm but 19mm is ok too!

 By: Chronometer (aka yacomino) : March 2nd, 2024-22:37

Less is sometimes more …

 By: Cpt Scarlet : March 1st, 2024-18:57
Especially when it comes from another dimension ;-)) … To infinity and beyond ! … See you all tomorrow folks for another “KIS” selection ! Best Captain ...  

That second shot is great!

 By: KURT_DAVID : March 1st, 2024-19:11
Official timekeeper of: “The United Federation of Planets” Channeling my inner Trekkie😀 Well done Cpt.

Thank you …

Live long and prosper 🖖


 By: Subexplorer : March 2nd, 2024-01:47

Wow Captain!! You really surprised me! Is this a new arrival? This watch is fitting for Captain Scarlet, looks like beyond telling time it serves to trace Mysterons presence! ;)

 By: Subexplorer : March 2nd, 2024-01:47
I specially like your second shot which captures to perfection the character of this futuristic watch. Enjoy your weekend my dear friend. Look forward to more KIS watches in your collection! Abel

Thank you dear friend …

 By: Cpt Scarlet : March 2nd, 2024-16:42
It’s just landed 😉 If you see this guy, let me know ! ...  

Of course I will keep you informed Captain! Last time he was seen in Mars if memory doesn´t fail. Lol! Big congrats on your new addition to your collection.

 By: Subexplorer : March 2nd, 2024-21:22
It´s space ship looks is very intriguing indeed. A conversation starter for sure. I wish you´ll enjoy it so much my dear friend. Best, Abel

Hopefully he hasn’t got enough rocket fuel for the return journey 😉

 By: Cpt Scarlet : March 3rd, 2024-10:22
The interesting thing is that this watch is a real conversation starter and I find it very refreshing. It generates less envy and a more positive conversation about watches. I think it should be named “The Friendship”


 By: Subexplorer : March 2nd, 2024-21:22

That's a very different take on keeping it simple!

 By: jml_watches : March 2nd, 2024-11:05
Time only but looks great

Thank you …

 By: Cpt Scarlet : March 2nd, 2024-16:44
Who needs a date when it looks like this 😉

Literally out of this world!

 By: Cpt Scarlet : March 3rd, 2024-10:16
I’m certainly enjoying a different dimension 🖖

Great wrist picture!

 By: aWtchslvr : March 2nd, 2024-21:04

Thank you 🙏

 By: Cpt Scarlet : March 3rd, 2024-10:16

Thank you dear h.s …

 By: Cpt Scarlet : March 3rd, 2024-10:41
They created something that gives much pleasure. Best regards Captain

Didn’t realize I had so many that qualified until I started looking 🤣

 By: Timeout : March 1st, 2024-18:57
A simple 2 hander with an exposed movement. No one does thin like Piaget. Although this lost the title of the thinnest watch many years back, I’ll take the additional mm or 2 for the elegance of the dial. The Traditionelle Small Seconds is still a “go to”...  

Just made my weekend..

 By: KURT_DAVID : March 1st, 2024-19:14
Incredible. 🙏🏻

Same thought here!

 By: Subexplorer : March 2nd, 2024-01:54

Glad you enjoyed seeing them.

 By: Timeout : March 2nd, 2024-15:04
I’ve had fun an over the years picking them up along the way.

Wow dear Timeout!! Breathtaking array of KIS watches in your entry! Rotating bezels qualify as they are not mechanical so not a true complication I feel.

 By: Subexplorer : March 2nd, 2024-01:53
You share superb KIS watches here fitting in the Theme, even if their stunning dials are not really simple. A gift for the eyes. I can understand your fondness for your beautiful Santos by Cartier. Beautiful collection! Thank you so much for sharing. Hagw... 

Thanks Abel.

 By: Timeout : March 2nd, 2024-15:10
The Santos Dumont has such a rich history with Cartier - first wrist watch - arguably the first sports/aviation watch too. Definitely one of my favorites!

Outstanding watches! 👏👏👏

 By: COUNT DE MONET : March 2nd, 2024-10:04
Very good point about the VC.

Many thanks!

 By: Timeout : March 2nd, 2024-15:13
The Vacheron is such a beautifully simple watch - with an outstanding movement. I’ve had this white gold one for many years. I must say that I do like the boutique only grey dial model, but had already jumped in when this one was released.

You’re welcome.

 By: Timeout : March 2nd, 2024-15:16
The Grönefeld is another one of my favorites. For the longest while I thought I’d go for the 1941 Remontoire- but the symmetry of the Principia won me over 😊


 By: j.jota : March 1st, 2024-18:59


 By: KCLQMULKU : March 2nd, 2024-20:32
The Explorer is just too cool not to include!

A great theme!

 By: KCLQMULKU : March 1st, 2024-19:47

Hello dear KCLQMULKU! Glad you like the theme for this weekend. Two beautiful KIS watches you share here. I love both and own both. It´s a shame the Omega was discontinued so fast.

 By: Subexplorer : March 2nd, 2024-02:05
The Tudor is a very versatile, tough and reliable timepiece which I wear very often. Enjoy your watches and weekend my friend! Best, Abel

Thank you so much Abel for your kind words!

 By: KCLQMULKU : March 2nd, 2024-08:10
I always find the simple to be just as beautiful and inspiring as the complicated (with a splash of coolness of course)!

Ah that CK…😍

Hello enjoythemusic! I love your definition of "simple" in watches! KIS watches can be as gorgeous as those you share here worn by you and dearest family members. Absolutely agree with you...

 By: Subexplorer : March 2nd, 2024-02:12
... about what is Important in life. I always remember your post about the purchase of the Destro GMT for your Dad. Nice shot! Thank you so much for your entry! Hagwe, Abel

Yes, family moments to remember. ❤️

Welcome to our event analog_sheen!! KIS watches is a great subject to collect watches around it. As you and other participants well show along this thread, "Simple" doesn´t mean...

 By: Subexplorer : March 2nd, 2024-02:24
... that these timepieces can´t be gorgeous and stunning. These three watches are superb and I specially love your Gronefeld. The meteorite dial adds to the charm and interest in this example you own. Keep enjoing them so much. Hagwe! Abel

I love this selection

Please share it more often!

Here are a few 3-handers that I enjoy...

 By: Gregineugene : March 1st, 2024-23:56

Hello Greg! Three nice KIS watches you are sharing here. Thank you for this entry. I like so much your two vintage watches which have such a charming look.

 By: Subexplorer : March 2nd, 2024-02:41
I specially love your Grenchen "Packman" (inspired in a vintage model of that brand) with those so special indexes which add to its charm. Great pictures to share them. Keep enjoying so much your KIS timepieces and Hagwe! Abel

I can't seem to get this Pac Man off my wrist!

Somewhat precious for today's cramming at the library,

But yet simple somehow. Picture 1: Vacheron Constantin Ref. 6115 A., fitted with Cal. 1003/1 (from a private European collection). Picture 2: Vacheron Constantin Ref. 6115 A., fitted with Cal. 1003/1 (from a private European collection). ...  

Many thanks, dear host!

Way too kind words!

I am very sorry for this late answer,

 By: Volney. : April 16th, 2024-15:42
But do thank you, warmly!

Much obliged!

 By: Volney. : April 17th, 2024-21:45

This is the first Vacheron Constantin I have bought.

 By: Volney. : March 3rd, 2024-10:39
Cal. 1003 is perhaps the movement that made me better understand what the stakes are in watchmaking.

Superb !

 By: Cpt Scarlet : March 4th, 2024-15:08

Way too kind,

 By: Volney. : April 16th, 2024-15:44
But let's both agree that our admiration should go to the watchmaker!

Vacheron have made some fabulous watches…

 By: Cpt Scarlet : April 16th, 2024-16:16
Including this gem.

Lets see if i can show some ,,simple,, ones This Moser is my definition of a clean and ,,simple ,, . Less is more Hope you enjoy them 🙏🏻 Hagwe 🙏🏻🤗 ...  

Ahh Watchonthewrists!! What a marvelous collection of KIS watches. Agree with you: simple or just two or three hands doesn´t mean they are not marvelous pieces.

 By: Subexplorer : March 2nd, 2024-13:03
All of them perfectly fit in the theme of this weekend. I would say the Moser wins in the minimalistic display of time. Fantastic! Great pictures to boot. Thank you for your entry! Hagwe, Abel

Fantastic shots!

 By: KCLQMULKU : March 2nd, 2024-20:37
That Moser is stunning!

Quality ! …

Fabulous selection of simple on the outside, easy on the eye and beautifully made.

Most of the usual culprits:)

Great shots to share them. Keep enjoying and loving them so much. Hagwe! Abel

Hermes KIS with the H08

 By: iceheller 1945 ✌️ : March 2nd, 2024-10:19
The composite material makes the watch simple but with technological edge! With Titanium back, ceramic bezel and fiber glass composite case, that a lot of cutting edge watch materials in one simple watch! ...  

Hello iceheller! superb and little seen KIS Hermes you share here. I´m fond of Hermes watches and I have them in my wish list. I confess I had never seen this particular model before.

 By: Subexplorer : March 2nd, 2024-13:09
Agree with your description of this watch considering the materials used to make it. Striking presence on the wrist. Thank you for sharing it here! Hagwe! Abel

I waited fr a year actually and I happen to dropby Hermes last week…

Stance ball watch? 🤔

For me the Railmaster is such a cool piece!

Such a great Railmaster!

 By: R. Goodfellow : March 3rd, 2024-23:28
An under appreciated version of the watch with a good variety of sizes and even a chronograph option. There's also a chronograph with red accents that was made for the China market. So much more to explore than the Explorer! 🫢

Beautiful Railmaster …

 By: Cpt Scarlet : March 4th, 2024-15:12
A design classic from Omega.

Hello dear friend Yacomino!! Thank you so much for your contribution to the theme. I´m happy to know you like our theme.

 By: Subexplorer : March 2nd, 2024-13:21
Fantastic choices all of them. Some of them we share owning so you know my big love with them. I would say my favorite is your Chopard orange dial. Stunning piece!! Great shots to share them here. Keep enjoying and loving your KIS watches so much my dear ... 

Loving the green strap on the CK!

Particularly your Tricolour Seamaster, at least I think it’s the titanium, tantalum and rose gold ref 🤷🏻‍♂️ 🍻

A eclectic mix🙂

Another new watch ! 🤷🏼‍♂️ It’s a limited edition of 100 pieces by Unimatic.

Ha ha ha!! Ahh no! Wives will ask and protest…

I have the perfect answer to share with you …

I learned this reply from my dear mother when my father asked her about a particular item of clothing or accessory…. “This old thing ?…. it’s been in my wardrobe for years” 😉

Ha ha ha!! I’ll borrow the answer…

 By: Subexplorer : March 3rd, 2024-18:43
… from your Mother!! Lol!

Good luck dear friend 😉

My big pleasure Goodfellow. Intersting to know that you have owned it for so long. I hope to find mine some day and will take in account what you tell me about its noisy functioning! Lol!

 By: Subexplorer : March 4th, 2024-14:43
I will keep it far from my wife... at least during nights! ha ha ha!! Keep enjoying yours so much! Best, Abel

As it turns out, two of my favorite watches are “simple”. My trusty Explorer, and a family vintage Omega. Perhaps I’ll throw this one in for good measure. ...  

Three great KIS watches you share here dear RabidManatee.

 By: Subexplorer : March 3rd, 2024-03:18
The Explorer is a very versatile watch, your charming Omega has the added value of its provenance and the Reverso a timeless classic. Enjoy your KIS watches so much! Thank you for your entry! Hagwe Abel

Thank you so much!

Hello Andreas!! Great collection of KIS watches owns your wife!

Superb dials !

Cheers 🤪

 By: Cpt Scarlet : March 3rd, 2024-18:33

As you probably know, the dial is silver but the reflection

of the light on the hands and markers turns it into champagne very often. I also liked the green dial but yes, I went for the silver cos it seemed more atemporal.

simple yet tres chic!

Why not …

When it looks this good 👍

So many good ones posted

 By: MichaelC : March 3rd, 2024-22:05
The arrival of this watch coincided well with the topic. For the past year or so, I have posted a few times on my desire to go a bit simpler moving forward. Also to consolidate, overall. This Parmigiani is a major success for goal 1. Does not help goal 2 ... 

Indeed number 2 is always harder! 😉

 By: Chronometer (aka yacomino) : March 3rd, 2024-23:07

Panerai could be the perfect choice …

 By: Cpt Scarlet : March 3rd, 2024-16:58
Hi Bill, Panerai in the sunshine hits the spot perfectly. Best Captain ...

 By: Chronometer (aka yacomino) : March 4th, 2024-13:19

Thank you so much Bill for your great entry. I agree that Panerai makes great watches fitting the KIS concept. This simple clean dial and two or eventually three hands is part of their DNA.

 By: Subexplorer : March 4th, 2024-12:58
Your stunning shots and collection shared here demonstrate this feeling about this favorite brand. Have a nice week ahead Bill. Best, Abel

Hellow dear Wachnut! Awesome entry! I´m happy to know you like the theme and to receive your post with so many superb KIS timepieces.

 By: Subexplorer : March 4th, 2024-12:55
Yes, I feel diver watches fit in the theme as the moving bezel is not truly a complication but an additional feature moved by the owners hand... sometimes. Lol. Guess most diving watches sold in the present belong to desk divers. Lol! I´m sure you are enj... 

Thanks dear Abel !
