WS for the 12th of April is live - the theme is ‘Hands’

Apr 11, 2019,22:59 PM

The theme for this week’s WS is ‘Hands’. What I mean by that is any and all watches that have more than three. So let’s see chronographs, calendars, multiple time zones, alarms...

Looking forward to seeing your multi-handed entries and have a great weekend!

Here are some of mine:

Easy for me... Four of them...

 By: amanico : April 11th, 2019-23:14
And this one, because if you add mine, that makes 4 hands. ...  

You’re going for the win in all three categories, Nico 👌🏻

 By: KMII : April 11th, 2019-23:47
Some fantastic shots and it’s hard to say which one I like most. Very, very nice selection! 😊

Gracias, Amigo mio. [nt]

I am torn between the torn/ek 😊 and the Sonata...

 By: Izhik : April 13th, 2019-04:03
but the charm of the past probably says...Blancpain wins...

Funny theme my friend .

 By: Watchonthewrist : April 11th, 2019-23:34
I have found a few and some of them have very cool hands imho ...  

I see Nico is your legal counsel 😉

 By: KMII : April 11th, 2019-23:49
Adding your own hand, every watch has four or more 😂 On a more serious note, you have shown some real beauties, with truly special hand designs 👌🏻

:))) [nt]

 By: amanico : April 11th, 2019-23:53

🤗 thanks my friend 😉 [nt]

 By: Watchonthewrist : April 12th, 2019-12:09

Thanks dear Abel 🤗

 By: Watchonthewrist : April 12th, 2019-12:08

Wow... you‘re playing the Independents‘ hand in a spectacular way! Love the Titan Hawk.

 By: mrds : April 12th, 2019-14:44
Thank you for sharing these marvels. Cheers, Daniel

Will do my best to post more in the near future 😉

 By: Watchonthewrist : April 13th, 2019-00:35
Thanks for the nice words 🙏🏻🤗

What a great theme, my friend! I'll sure play...

 By: shortys home : April 11th, 2019-23:43
... starting with a photo that shows quite a few hands over the guilloche dial of the Blancpain Villeret GMT Reveil... ... followed by the tritium filled hands of the Breguet Type XX Aeronavale 3800BR: Have a great weekend everyone! Cheers Henrik (Post ed...  

If it’s a wristshot...

 By: KMII : April 11th, 2019-23:51
And a three hander, our esteemed legal counsel from Paris says it’s OK 😉 The BP is a shot to die for. And the XX is so charming with the tritium 👌🏻

Thanks, you honor! So here are two additional wristshots...

 By: shortys home : April 12th, 2019-00:05
... and one watch even has more than three hands 😎 The Blancpain Villeret Quantieme Complet... ... and a watch that actually has my favorite hands on it, the Hentschel H2 Sport: Cheers Henrik ...  

Truly beautiful Henrik!

 By: KMII : April 12th, 2019-01:18
I so regret not having been able to attend Paris last time and to see the Henschels live 🤷🏻‍♂️

I am sure we will!

 By: KMII : April 12th, 2019-13:05
Looking forward to it 👍🏻

Merci beaucoup, Nico! [nt]

My Blancpain Villeret in steel

 By: deanthebakedbean : April 12th, 2019-00:35

Seems to be the BP week 😊

 By: KMII : April 12th, 2019-01:19
Lovely chronograph you have there 👌🏻

thanks [nt]

 By: deanthebakedbean : April 12th, 2019-02:56

cheers [nt]

 By: deanthebakedbean : April 12th, 2019-02:56

I love two types of hands...

 By: NT931 : April 12th, 2019-02:19
Blued hands (especially when there are 6 of them!) And patinated hands that highlight the charms of vintage. ...  

Wonderful, NT931 👌🏻

 By: KMII : April 12th, 2019-02:31
The blued ones on your GP chronograph are wonderful indeed! And the patinated ones, too 😊

M.o.D hands ...

 By: Ludi : April 12th, 2019-03:16
... yet still the real deal ... vs the next to come (seller pic), original hands... except... ... Oh boy ! M.o.D dial this time. It seems I can’t get the CK2444 the right way :/ Well, I can’t help being happy anyway Hagwe ^^ - Fred ...  

My kidneys for a Grana ...

 By: Ludi : April 12th, 2019-03:21
... and maybe I might have a slight chance to get those dirty twelves Thanks

Too many fishes to catch...

 By: Ludi : April 12th, 2019-03:26
... no time to waste on that elusive Grana hunt

That's true, too. [nt]

 By: amanico : April 12th, 2019-03:29


 By: KMII : April 12th, 2019-03:24
Maybe third time lucky? 😉 Cool pieces either way 👌🏻

Who needs hands when you’ve got balls

 By: : April 12th, 2019-03:25

Fair point 😂

 By: KMII : April 12th, 2019-03:26
And a very cool shot 👌🏻

4 hands, 2 colors

 By: Artoxares : April 12th, 2019-03:31

And so beautiful 👌🏻👌🏻👌🏻

 By: KMII : April 12th, 2019-03:52
Love how elegantly Moser did this one ⚖️

Thx Daniel :-) [nt]

 By: Artoxares : April 13th, 2019-03:09

The alarms have it, the alarms have it

 By: jml_watches : April 12th, 2019-03:55
Hi Sorry, been watching far too much of BBC parliament of late! 🙄 Cheers JML ...  

ROFL 🤣 Good one!

 By: KMII : April 12th, 2019-03:58
While I cannot comment on BBC Parliament (the kids ended my TV days five years ago), the alarms really do have it! And you have such a great collection of them, too 👌🏻

LOL! [nt]

 By: amanico : April 12th, 2019-04:20

A very interesting and charming complication indeed!!

 By: Subexplorer : April 12th, 2019-18:03
i also love alarm watches! Cheers! Abel

Agree dear KM! 😉 [nt]

 By: Subexplorer : April 13th, 2019-05:49

Exactly like that!

 By: KMII : April 12th, 2019-04:23
Fantastic Polaris shots, Tyo 👌🏻

Great Polaris [nt]

 By: jml_watches : April 12th, 2019-05:05

Great Theme dear KM!! Hands set are an important feature of our beloved wacthes, not only they are needed to be able to read time of course but they also add...

 By: Subexplorer : April 12th, 2019-06:06
... character, beauty and charm to the watch. I feel we will view many great entries this week end answering to your call!! Will search my HD to add some pictures to the thread! Cheers! Abel

I am sure you have many a qualifying specimen, Abel!

 By: KMII : April 12th, 2019-13:08
Looking forward to which ones you will enter 😊👌🏻

Thanks a lot:-) [nt]

 By: FabR : April 12th, 2019-08:19

What superb shots, FabR!

 By: KMII : April 12th, 2019-13:10
And three excellent specimen of different complications 👌🏻

Thank-You! :-) [nt]

 By: FabR : April 12th, 2019-14:25

What does it mean when all my watches have stick hands?

 By: jporos : April 12th, 2019-08:21
Even the new watch that I have pre-ordered from the Basel 2019 novelties has stick hands. Do I need a watch with cathedral hands? Help! HAGWE! ...  

You are stuck. ;) [nt]

 By: amanico : April 12th, 2019-08:23

I think you do...

 By: KMII : April 12th, 2019-13:11
A nice Minerva Pythagore Aviation, for instance 😉 On the other hand (pun intended) the ones you show are great 👌🏻

ROFL 🤣 [nt]

 By: KMII : April 12th, 2019-21:42

Has to be 4 vintage hands each for me - the GMT and Worldtime

Merci beacoup Nico! [nt]

Thank you Abel! [nt]

Great vintage pair [nt]

Thanks JML! [nt]

Zodiac is the perfect travel choice here!

 By: KMII : April 12th, 2019-13:13
Fantastic shots, Giles 👌🏻 The weekend finally arrived and not a moment too soon 😉

Thanks Kristjan!

 By: nomadgiles : April 13th, 2019-00:31
And the sun is shinning here today too 😊

No such luck over here...

 By: KMII : April 13th, 2019-20:53
But if all works well, we’ll do a bit of city exploration regardless 😊 Get the little ones to stretch their legs and lungs a bit 😉

Hello dear KM!! Again: what an interesting theme!! Let me play...

 By: Subexplorer : April 12th, 2019-08:40
... with a few shots!! Hagwe my dear KM and all our friends here!! Cheers! Abel Three hands plus my hand Hour hand not visible but I swear it is hidden under the minutes one! Lol! ...  

Your collection seems to hide wonders, Abel...

 By: KMII : April 12th, 2019-13:15
The FPJ I was not aware of for instance 👌🏻 Not to say that the others are not spectacular - the Tudor shot is sublime!

Thank you so much my dear friend KM!! You are always so kind!

 By: Subexplorer : April 12th, 2019-17:59
Appreciate your kind comments so much! Yes the FP Journe is one of my favorites in my collection and arrived during the first days if 2017 . So glad you liked it and the Tudor shot which I was very lucky to shoot taking advantage of the light angle receiv... 

Somehow my flights are usually short haul...

 By: KMII : April 12th, 2019-21:47
So it’s mostly aisle seats for faster egress. And consequently few watch shots that work 😊 Congratulations - delayed - on your fantastic FPJ 👌🏻

Thank you again my dear KM!! ...

 By: Subexplorer : April 13th, 2019-05:55
... I understand you of course. Occasion for a good plane shot comes from time to time and specially on long flights where boredom makes me look for something interesting to do or to view beyond watching a movie or reading a book. Glad you like the FPJ! A... 

Time to get Freaky!!

 By: NickO : April 12th, 2019-10:56
This one has a minute hand, an hour hand, played a major hand in conceptualizing haute horology as Modern Art, and is incredibly hand-some. That's four hands in my book ...  

That works as four in mine, too! 😊

 By: KMII : April 12th, 2019-13:16
And what a spectacular piece 👌🏻

Such a cool watch . 👌🏻

 By: Watchonthewrist : April 13th, 2019-00:49
Realy like this Freak a lot

Happy to play with my two vintage (ca. 1969) Breitling Chronomat Reference 0818

 By: Franksc7 : April 12th, 2019-11:21
These two “Big Case” 48mm Breitling Triple Chronographs have a very formidable wrist presence and the hands make these pieces extra special for me. ...  

The ones for the big hands...

 By: KMII : April 12th, 2019-13:17
Bold and so cool! Looking like Kern has pored over this part of the vintage catalogues already and I have to say for good reason - yours exude such period charm 👌🏻

Agree with your comments Franksc7! And your ...

 By: Subexplorer : April 13th, 2019-05:58
... stunning shots of your superb duo of Breitlings illustrate that so well!! Hagwe! Abel

two guys at twilight...

 By: Izhik : April 12th, 2019-13:35
3 hands..differently organized... really like those hands..actually, I like everything in this watch... ...  

Two truly spectacular pieces, Izhik!

 By: KMII : April 12th, 2019-13:37
The second shot is really special - seems to be a week of BP 👌🏻

thanks so much KMII...

 By: Izhik : April 12th, 2019-13:42
but for me...each week is a BP week....😋

Two in my collection . . .

 By: Dr No : April 12th, 2019-18:40
. . . that match your theme, K. Not really much for chronos per se , so these will probably be the only ones with multiple hands. Unless Omega sees fit to release an updated Mk II with their latest cal 3861 movement, of course ;-) . . . ...  

Two fantastic ones for sure, Art! 👌🏻

 By: KMII : April 12th, 2019-21:44
One can never go wrong with a DC-8 on the case back 😊

Two great ones dear Art!! They perfectly fit ...

 By: Subexplorer : April 13th, 2019-06:03
... this week end theme!! I specially like the Flightmaster and each time I view yours reminds me of one I let go some time ago with such a great patina!! Regrets regrets!! Hagwe my dear friend!! Abel.

Flightmasters can still be found, Abel . . .

 By: Dr No : April 13th, 2019-08:45
. . . but they are seemingly pricier now than, say, six months ago. In my opinion, they're the last of the classic collectible Omegas to garner the attention of the collector community. I'll probably never own a vintage Rail or SM300 - those horses left t... 

Absolutely agree dear Art! I know sooner or later

 By: Subexplorer : April 13th, 2019-20:48
I’ll get a FM but I need to hurry as interest in these classics keep growing. That particular specimen I remember with regret of letting pass had a wonderful black turned brown dial and an exceptional condition. Hope to find something similar next time!! ... 

I hope to find one soon, too...

 By: KMII : April 13th, 2019-20:55
Definitely the vintage Omega that draws me in most at the moment 😊

Unfortunately for hunters, Flightmasters . . .

 By: Dr No : April 13th, 2019-07:13
. . . have also appreciated recently. A nice 910 appeared on eBay a few weeks ago. > $6K . . .

So true, so very true. To this day, I regret . . .

 By: Dr No : April 13th, 2019-08:39
. . . not being able to pull the trigger on that perfect eBay CK2914-2 several years ago. At the time, I simply didn't have the wherewithal to follow, much less win, the auction. A year (or was it two?) later, Omega announced the limited edition I now own... 

I'm all in for an updated Mk II...

 By: jporos : April 13th, 2019-10:11
love the two Omega chronos you have, Art!

I think these guys have the most hands in my watch box

 By: donizetti : April 12th, 2019-22:34
8 hands .... ... and 9! HAGWE all Andreas ...  

Simply wow 😲

 By: KMII : April 12th, 2019-22:41
And I am not only speaking of the number of hands 👌🏻👌🏻👌🏻

Those watches more than fill the bill Andreas!!

 By: Subexplorer : April 13th, 2019-06:04
Absolutely fantastic pieces!! Hagwe! Abel

Sorry I‘m late to this party. Needed to complete the hand-count first 😄

 By: mrds : April 13th, 2019-00:05
And the winner is.... this Hemisphere. ...  

And a very special seven hander it is, too 👌🏻👍🏻

 By: KMII : April 13th, 2019-00:41
We see PF way too seldom IMHO 🤷🏻‍♂️

Never too late to share an stunning piece like this Mrds!!

 By: Subexplorer : April 13th, 2019-06:05
Fantastic piece and awesome hands! Hagwe! Abel

My big pleasure! I share your taste my friend!!

 By: Subexplorer : April 14th, 2019-05:11
Cheers! Abel

Yes, absolutely. [nt]

A classic Heuer chrono.

HAGWE fernando ...  

Perfect old school Heuer 👌🏻

 By: KMII : April 13th, 2019-02:16
All a Heuer should be 👍🏻

Classic classic classic!! Beautiful timepiece Fernando!!

 By: Subexplorer : April 13th, 2019-06:07
Shown in a most classic wristshot ! Thanks a lot for sharing! Hagwe!! Abel

Muchas gracias Abel! [nt]

 By: fernando : April 13th, 2019-08:16

I can try to manage with

 By: S F : April 13th, 2019-04:45
a few hands Cheers! ...  

You manage pretty well my friend S F!!

 By: Subexplorer : April 13th, 2019-06:09
I perfectly view four hands there!! 😉 Hagwe!! Abel

Timely 😂 [nt]

 By: S F : April 13th, 2019-16:20

Love how you’ve added the hands needed 👌🏻

 By: KMII : April 13th, 2019-07:54
And the Seamaster is cool at 3 hands, too 😊

Going for color here...Silberstein Krono 2 from 1993

 By: Tim Jackson : April 13th, 2019-12:32
Got to have a red hand in there too... And finally some extra-ordinary L&H Cathedral blued steel belongs to a friend, HAGWE All, Cheers, Tim ...  

Wow Tim! Beautiful hand sets and watches!! The Silberstein...

 By: Subexplorer : April 13th, 2019-20:53
... watch got a winning handset indeed!! Thanks for sharing!! Hagwe! Abel

Now that’s something one definitely doesn’t see every day, Tim!

 By: KMII : April 13th, 2019-21:01
While I see more UNs here than even Rolex (not lowering its merit by any means), the first and the last from your trio are rare birds indeed, with exquisite hands! The playfulness of the AS is something largely missing nowadays and the sobriety of the LH,... 

My son and I agree

 By: thegrailwatch : April 13th, 2019-22:43
The PSM Serpent Calendar has the best hands in the family collection ...  

Yep! True that! [nt]

 By: amanico : April 13th, 2019-22:44

What a fantastic shot!

 By: KMII : April 13th, 2019-22:52
There’s many hands voting for this one 👌🏻 And such a heartwarming picture!

Agree those hands are amazing [nt]

 By: Watchonthewrist : April 13th, 2019-23:53

Let's put my hand on my hard disk to find the desired hands...

 By: Mike H : April 14th, 2019-00:58
That is one I was in love with (and still am)… I wish I still have it... And since we are with chronos, why not proceeding with these 2... L et's not forget the Wonder Watch with its amazing dauphine hands... and let's finish with two other beauties with ...  

The Daytonas are cool...

 By: KMII : April 14th, 2019-01:15
But the 5070 is simply astounding - possibly some of the best pictures I have seen of the reference 👌🏻👌🏻👌🏻

Not for the die hard Panerista...

 By: JLCman : April 14th, 2019-02:42
...but for me the Panerai Radiomir Chronograph PAM288 was and is a joy to watch - straight, clean, with hands of a sublime elegance. Even if its Panerai DNA only shows up at a second or third look. ...  

Very cool piece, JLCMan 👌🏻

 By: KMII : April 14th, 2019-03:56
And watches off the beaten path tend to have an appeal all of their own. Superb shot 👌🏻👍🏻

Great Ferriers! I love the Asagai hands.

 By: mrds : April 14th, 2019-06:24
Is there writing on the strapof your Galet Square? Never seen this.

Didn’t see the Ferriers the first time around...

 By: KMII : April 14th, 2019-07:11
For some reason. Sublime of course 👌🏻

Yes there is indeed some writing on the strap, it is actual Berluti Scritto leather

 By: Mike H : April 14th, 2019-12:12
although Berluti never made watch straps (except for a limited edition with Hublot). But since they don't produce these straps for their boutiques, I had it made bespoke , very simple ...
