WS for the 30th of August is live! Opposites attract...

Aug 30, 2019,08:20 AM

As announced the other day the topic this week is opposites attract. What I would like to see are uncommon combinations featuring your watches - whether itโ€™s dress pieces on a beach, high complications in tool settings, a G-Shock in black tie or unconventional strap choices (bonus points for pink), watches worn on things other than wrists (but letโ€™s keep it civilized), whatever experiment you have tried out, which produced an unusual result goes ๐Ÿ˜Š

Looking forward to some more rarely seen pieces and combinations and wishing you all a great weekend!

Hereโ€™s some of mine:

A Doxa Searambler choker shot...

A dress Seiko SCVL002 with swimming trunks...

And finally, my Seiko Presage SPB069 with the weirdest strap choice known to man - namely chicken leg leather.

Ok ,ok, at that game, I am not too bad...

My kind of watch winder. Then, what about some Duometre on Natos? A sweet candy, this Duometre. The Reverso Red has to be mentioned. And I would not like to end without my weirdest shot... As Art likes to say: " You knew this one was coming ". ...  

Okay, that last picture is really, really disturbing

 By: NickO : August 30th, 2019-08:49
It would give small children and Vegans nightmares.

Vegans? :))) [nt]

It was a vegan piggy ๐Ÿท๐Ÿ˜‚

ROFL!!! [nt]

 By: amanico : August 30th, 2019-12:34

I also say: I felt THIS ONE was coming!! OMG that Devilish shot!! ...

 By: Subexplorer : August 30th, 2019-08:50
... The Duometre... such a sweet timepiece! Looks so cool with the Nato! Abrazos amigo! Abel

The most frightening one is not the crude ham shot, but this one....

As you say - inevitable ๐Ÿ˜‚ Some great combinations, Nico!

Thanks, K. [nt]

Good one โ˜๏ธ [nt]

Simply love it ๐Ÿ˜Š

Tough challenge this week!

 By: thegrailwatch : August 30th, 2019-09:52
Trying to rack my brain what I could contribute this week and the only thing I had was with the theme of "big & small". HAGWE everybody! ...  

Opposites attract ๐Ÿ‘Œ [nt]

 By: Cpt Scarlet : August 30th, 2019-11:47

A very challenging theme for this weekend dear Km!...

 By: Subexplorer : August 30th, 2019-10:25
which is well illustrated with your opening shots! Letโ€™s try to answer your call with these shots: How about a little robot wearing a Zenith or a friendly astronaut wearing... a Speedy! What else? Or may be a GS GMT high beat ltd edition worn at the beach...  

Exactly Nicolas! Keen eyes! Ed White...

 By: Subexplorer : August 30th, 2019-11:53
... 105.003.64 circa 1964. Cheers! Abel

Wow, thatโ€™s a great Speedmaster !..

 By: Cpt Scarlet : August 30th, 2019-11:36
What year is it Abel ?

I thought so ...

 By: Cpt Scarlet : August 30th, 2019-11:55
Superb !.... I think you will like this ... ...  

It doesnโ€™t seem at all difficult, Abel...

 By: KMII : August 30th, 2019-12:12
If I judge by your shots ๐Ÿ˜Š A great weekend to you, too!

Awesome photos, but, in the interest of the theme...

 By: thegrailwatch : August 30th, 2019-12:13
Shouldn't the Astronaut be holding the Aquanaut?!

Making the summer hotter ..

 By: COUNT DE MONET : August 30th, 2019-11:23
Very nice theme for this weeks WS, KMII. An ueber-classic dress watch worn with summer attire. To me it works! Best weekend to all! ...  

La Classe, Count. [nt]

Love that watch dear Count !

You are even better to me :-)))!

Another great quote from Moooonayyy is: "Don't get saucy with me, Bearnaise!" (the name of his travel companion in the carriage)

Too good! :))) [nt]

Now weโ€™re talking, my dear Count!

 By: KMII : August 30th, 2019-12:12
What a sharp combination ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป

Didnโ€™t know ZZ Top were so full of wisdom ๐Ÿ˜‰

 By: KMII : August 30th, 2019-15:49
Maybe I need to give them a shot ๐Ÿ˜Š

A great weekend to you too, Abel!

The Aquanaut with the black strap with white stitching ๐Ÿ‘Œ

It's an ETRO shirt from Milano

 By: COUNT DE MONET : August 31st, 2019-10:20
ETRO does do very nice fashion!

Strange Combinations ...

 By: Cpt Scarlet : August 30th, 2019-12:42
Zenith Big Pilot with Savile Row suit... Roger Dubuis and a little DIY ... Rolex Explorer Mince Pie Dial (Piece Unique) ... ...  

Thank you..

 By: Cpt Scarlet : September 1st, 2019-02:43
This photo was taken at a local Rolex AD when I went to check on progress of my order for a new Daytona ;-(

The last one... Top! [nt]

 By: amanico : August 30th, 2019-13:21

Thank you ...

 By: Cpt Scarlet : September 1st, 2019-02:44
The pastry bezel was delicious ๐Ÿ˜‹

Just what kind of DIY were you engaged in?

 By: KMII : August 30th, 2019-15:52
It somehow reminds me of a line from โ€˜Murder in the red barnโ€™ by Tom Waits - โ€˜Thereโ€™s always some killing to be done around the farm...โ€™ ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป

This song came to mind...

It surely is!! [nt]

Think I need to volunteer as the Wrist Shot Judge

 By: thegrailwatch : August 30th, 2019-17:12
just so I can solidify your victory with the Explorer/Mince Pie masterpiece of photography!๐Ÿ™‚๐Ÿ™‚๐Ÿ™‚

I would like to have it serviced but ...

 By: Cpt Scarlet : September 1st, 2019-02:51
Iโ€™m concerned that Rolex will replace the dial ;-))

Great shots my dear friend!! Specially love...

 By: Subexplorer : August 31st, 2019-16:34
... the special order Explorer dial!! Hagwe! Abel

Thank you Abel..

Plus you added a snow dive component, too...

Great shots indeed ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป

Nice photos ๐Ÿ‘Œ [nt]

Yes, itโ€™s been a lot of fun ...

With friends, restaurants, bars and live music... not forgetting WristScan !

This week I'll share images taken by, and in honor . . .

 By: Dr No : August 30th, 2019-14:23
. . . of, Patrice. [Both images credited to Patrice, 2014] Patrice was an active member of our community for several years. He had a special knack for crafting oddly juxtaposed watch and strap combinations that matched his quiet personality. There are man...  

They might not work for most guys, especially the red Reverso . . .

 By: Dr No : August 30th, 2019-18:51
. . . on green canvas, but somehow, they seemed natural on Patrice's wrist. He's kinda like Audrey Hepburn - she could wear a diamond necklace with jeans and boots, and no one would think twice of it. Same with Patrice and his combos.

Great shots ๐Ÿ‘ [nt]

 By: Cpt Scarlet : August 30th, 2019-17:00

Wow, loving the Reverso on that strap!

 By: thegrailwatch : August 30th, 2019-17:16
Now Iโ€™m conflicted between your shot and Cpt Scarletโ€™s Explorer/Mince Pie. This is going to be a good one... itโ€™s only Friday!

Patrice took that photo of his Reverso five years ago . . .

 By: Dr No : August 30th, 2019-18:35
. . . so all credit goes to him. I hope he sees this thread and jumps in!

If anyone told you that Patek would work on a NATO, you'd probably say . . .

 By: Dr No : August 31st, 2019-20:50
. . . "That's crazy!" But Patrice made it work for him . That's saying something . . .

Agree! [nt]

 By: Subexplorer : September 1st, 2019-06:11

Absolutely! [nt]

 By: Subexplorer : September 1st, 2019-06:11

Nice retrospective...

A few odd ones:)....

Can only recommend Kamchatka crab salad! In fact anything from the animal ๐Ÿ˜‚

not what it looks like

 By: jml_watches : August 31st, 2019-04:05
Hi My EMAS diver, what I like is that it may have all the tropes of dive watches - it subverts them by being useless at them. Cheers JML ...  

That is a cool contrast indeed, JML ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป

 By: KMII : August 31st, 2019-04:41
Need to read up on them at some point ๐Ÿ˜Š

Where to start...

 By: Tim Jackson : August 31st, 2019-15:15
The first series are non-sport watches at the beach Rose Gold case with rubber strap, unusual case material with rubber. How about classic and very much not... Two from UN, quite opposite I'd say HAGWE All, Cheers, Tim ...  

Thanks Nico! [nt]

 By: Tim Jackson : August 31st, 2019-22:33

Youโ€™re definitely a master of the genre!

 By: KMII : August 31st, 2019-21:44
The beach shots are superb but the watch that has me most intrigued is the fast beat UN. Given the bracelet - how does it wear?

The bracelet UN wears surprisingly well

 By: Tim Jackson : August 31st, 2019-22:34
Even though the links are quite large, it is quite comfortable. Definitely an outlier in my collection. Cheers, Tim

Stunning lineup ๐Ÿ˜ฎ [nt]

Opposites .. let me think.. perhaps these?

 By: Seeks : September 1st, 2019-00:21
firstly, KMII, nice watches and shots. That last chicken leather got me interested ! Opposites theme.. maybe these would be ok? 1) panda and reverse panda ๐Ÿผ speedies 2) Blue Dial AP and a Pink shirt.... Best regards and HAGWE my friends ...  

Many thanks dear Nico..

Judging WotW was complicated on account of . . .

 By: Dr No : September 1st, 2019-12:31
. . . the unusual theme. When judging Wrist Scan and Static, aesthetic considerations of the image should be weighted equally with content. In other words, a particularly striking or carefully composed photo of an ordinary watch can be judged tops. When i...
