WS for Friday, the 13th of March - Watches in Nature - is live

Mar 13, 2020,06:04 AM

As mentioned earlier the theme for this WS is Watches in Nature. Whether it’s the wild, uncharted, or the local park (or a back garden, in case it’s lush like Cazalea’s 😉) doesn’t matter. A bonus for those who add a shot of the environment on top of the watch ones 👍🏻

Wishing everyone a great and safe weekend and looking forward to your entries!

Here’s mine to kick it off. Starting with a shot from Lake Baikal:

And some nature to go with it...

Thanks a lot for your kind words, Abel!

As for the ice, it was 98cm thick where we were, so absolutely fine - even if it is a weird feeling Looking forward to your pictures!

There was an ice expert with us throughout...

 By: KMII : March 13th, 2020-21:51
And every now and again we stopped to check 😉 ...  

Super Natural World...

Great theme for WristScan KMII, your shots are great ! Hopefully these will warm you up ;-)) ... Have a great weekend friends and stay safe. Kind regards The Captain ...  

Brilliant shots, Cpt Scarlet!

 By: KMII : March 13th, 2020-08:37
The water fun and nudist beach Doxa ones being my favourites Warmed up already anyway - plus there was the odd nicely heated yurt on Lake Baikal, too - so wasn't cold for long. Apart from the time driving the Caterham on ice - that was bloody freezing (fr... 

Thanks KMII 🙏...

 By: Cpt Scarlet : March 13th, 2020-08:44
I just couldn’t resist including the nudist beach shot ... that’s back to nature for you 😉

Great shots dear Captain!! I feel so happy when near the sea!! I{ m sure you have enjoyed so much there. I took some pictures too of my GS during my visit to Barcelona last year...

 By: Subexplorer : March 13th, 2020-13:37
... it makes for an awesome background. And your Doxa with the splash of sea water is really stunning. Lovely shots of watches and Nature! Hagwe! Abel

Thank you dear friend...

 By: Cpt Scarlet : March 13th, 2020-16:33
I had a lot of fun taking the shots ... especially the nudist beach ;-)) ... looking forward to seeing your photos 😉

Thank you for your comments 🙏...

 By: Cpt Scarlet : March 14th, 2020-02:44
Hope you have a great weekend.

My lush garden and its inhabitants are terrified

 By: cazalea : March 13th, 2020-07:15
by all the cold and ice you are showing us! We do have some rain but it's not stopping nature... and its creatures. Or me and my Seiko diver, down at the marsh called Famosa Slough Here's the lush garden mentioned earlier And finally, this morning's weath...  

Nice shot Mike...

 By: Cpt Scarlet : March 13th, 2020-07:18
Can you work one of your great Seiko watches into the photo ?

It will have to be a dive watch today

 By: cazalea : March 13th, 2020-08:14
The bee was yesterday ... today we need wetsuits. ...  

Is that...

 By: KMII : March 13th, 2020-08:39
A new vehicle? Satisfied?

Wow - what a shot!

 By: KMII : March 13th, 2020-08:38
This terror can only be averted by adding a watch picture

Possibly the first time ever I am more intrigued by

 By: thegrailwatch : March 13th, 2020-09:36
the "non-watch" photos.. your ice shots are seriously cool (no pun intended)!!!! I look forward to seeing all the entries this week, great theme, King!👍

+1 👍 [nt]

 By: Cpt Scarlet : March 13th, 2020-09:51

Thanks a lot!

 By: KMII : March 13th, 2020-11:17
Not yet had the time to transfer the photos from the camera but I can highly recommend the place 👌🏻

Your lake ice photos remind me of a day I'll never forget

 By: cazalea : March 13th, 2020-11:45
North of the Arctic Circle, in 2CVs on a frozen lake Later that day we pulled a stupid stunt and I nearly froze my kneecaps But my French co-drivere was even more maniacal! He got his Speedo wet with ice water... ...  

I knew you would have something such up your sleeve 😉

 By: KMII : March 13th, 2020-12:07
The closest I got to craziness was this: ...  

I don't think my Caterham had a heater

 By: cazalea : March 13th, 2020-12:36
except the crossflow 1600. Did that one have heat? Mine was pretty stark inside but it did have top and side curtains ...  

No heater and even starker than yours 😉

 By: KMII : March 13th, 2020-21:54
The main issue was the lack of windscreen, as the front wheels threw the snow directly into your face, when not going perfectly straight (and there was little of straight with that car on snow / ice) ❄️❄️❄️

Wow that looks like ....

 By: Cpt Scarlet : March 13th, 2020-16:35
Arctic Baywatch ;-))

Those are some frightening shots from Lake Baikal, K . . .

 By: Dr No : March 13th, 2020-12:11
. . . glad you made it outta there in one piece! Those of us born and bred in So Cal aren't exactly comfortable with ice. We are, though, used . . . . . . to rain. And I did take one step out our back door to snap this photo, so technically I was outside,...  

Lovely shot of your Railmaster, Art 👌🏻

 By: KMII : March 13th, 2020-12:34
And given the weather I can see why venturing further didn’t appeal 😉

Great shot dear Art!! The Railmaster is a model I love and Omega did a superb job with the Trilogy edition.

 By: Subexplorer : March 13th, 2020-14:01
It is a beautiful shot. But I was expecting something coming from you now... regret I don´t know how to post a video here: They say it never rains in California! Lol! ...  

I was a high school sophomore in Huntington Beach . . .

 By: Dr No : March 13th, 2020-16:28
. . . when this classic . . . . . . was released. Good memory, Abel! I'm impressed ;-) . . .

Happy days ! [nt]

 By: Cpt Scarlet : March 13th, 2020-16:40

I love that song and the Mammas and the Pappas album. I was very young back then. Great memories from those far years of course!

 By: Subexplorer : March 13th, 2020-19:24
Thank you for posting my dear friend! Have a nice week end dear Art! Abel

I love that record 💖 [nt]

 By: Cpt Scarlet : March 13th, 2020-16:39

As Mike and Art have demonstrated...

 By: KMII : March 13th, 2020-22:04
The Mamas and Papas took some liberty in interpreting the statistics 😉

That’s a superb Omega Railmaster !...

 By: Cpt Scarlet : March 13th, 2020-16:38
I need one in my life ;-0

Go vintage. Trust me . . .

 By: Dr No : March 13th, 2020-17:50
. . . on this. I thought the 60th would slake my thirst for a 2914. Boy, was I ever wrong! ;-)

Wise words Art...

 By: Cpt Scarlet : March 14th, 2020-09:39
I’m doing my best ;-))

Such a sweet Candy! [nt]

I thought this would be a theme for you, Abel 😊

Thank you so much dear friend KM!! You are always so kind! Glad you like these shots. The Sea always inspire me. I really love it and I dream to retire and living in a home with ...

 By: Subexplorer : March 14th, 2020-06:38
... its windows facing the sea. I feel it will be only a dream living in a big city near a murky waters river but... who knows! Have a nice week end my dear friend! Abel

That’s a good goal too have!

 By: KMII : March 14th, 2020-08:37

I'm taking this opportunity to share with you a few random shots take during the last year bedroom window in Genova! I'm actually not that far from the middle of the city, but since my window offers a pretty large view of trees, I thought of sha...  

PS: and these are a couple extra (and nicer) shots from my girlfriend, that she just found on her phone!😀

 By: KMII : March 13th, 2020-22:14
There must have been some carrot magnetism at play in your Milgaus shot, though 😂👌🏻

Genova or Geneva?

 By: KMII : March 13th, 2020-22:12
Great shots and just the watches for the leafy background 👌🏻

That’s a great looking selection Fab...

Mundane so undersells it!

 By: KMII : March 13th, 2020-22:16
Your shots are spectacular and so are the locations! My favorite (even if hard to choose among your shots) is the Freak 👌🏻👌🏻👌🏻

Just love the Doxa shot!

None left... but I have been very recently assured by the Owner to expect some correspondence from the other side of the Atlantic. I am as intrigued. Haswe

Truly fantastic landscape shot...

Looks great to me. I like the green dial on your Armida A7, it’s a cool looking watch.

Wonderful seaside shots!
