WS for the 19th of June ‘Who dares, wins’ is live

Jun 19, 2020,08:44 AM

As announced on Wednesday, the topic this week is ‘Who dares, wins’. So let’s see your wild, unconventional, funky combinations!

Let your inner Agnelli, De Tomaso... out!

Here are some of mine to start:

Matching a Doxa Searambler with a tie...

Woolly strap for the Railmaster?

Matching shirt to strap?

Or suit to strap?

And last but not least a safari LUC Chrono One?

Wishing you a great weekend and looking forward to your entries!

Can`t find a watch that meets your standards ?? Built your own !! he who dares designs and builts his own watch. here is my salute to Paolo Fanton who did just that.

A central minute hand chronograph that has passed some rigorous testing and real life pilot use to make it into production, and yes that shot is from within a U2 plane `doing the rounds` and make a small series for those who shared his passion. And Made i...

Looks like you’ll have a pleasant week end ahead my dear Art!

...even more daring from you, Art: something like this, perhaps: Cheers, pplater. ...  

Ha! [nt]

 By: amanico : June 20th, 2020-00:29

That was the old Art. The Art of today . . .

Wow 😮...

That’s a massive arm ;-))

That pic was taken many years ago for pplater's . . .

Fantastically played, Abel 👌🏻👍🏻

 By: KMII : June 19th, 2020-22:07
You make the Aquanaut look like a modern day officer watch 👌🏻 And the 5110 looks like a piece for the modern explorer 👍🏻 And man, those Egyptian divers really must have been big boys 😂 Great choices, all 👍🏻

Thank you so much my dear friend KM!! You perfectly describe these watches with exact words and that´s what I feel when viewing and wearing these combos. Regarding Egyptian Panerai...

 By: Subexplorer : June 20th, 2020-06:52
... agree with you though truth is that these watches were answer to the requirements of Egypt military watches requesting a large dial for easy time reading and cases to be worn on the arms of their thick rubber wet suits used in those early years of mil... 

I know about the Egyptians...

 By: KMII : June 20th, 2020-08:44
Was more in jest 😊👍🏻

Aquanaut with green canvas Is a perfect combo ...

Now that’s certainly one that fully matches the brief!
