WS for the 4th of January - New Horizons - begins now

Jan 03, 2019,07:16 AM

As announced yesterday, the topic of the first WS of the year will be New Horizons. You are free to interpret what this means for you but could be a new life phase, horological new year’s resolutions, new incomings, new collecting topics, or if none of these, what you cherish most and want to continue using, irrespective of horizons. Just post a watch that fits this topic for you!

For me it’s quite literally different ‘horizons’, as we just moved to another country yesterday (here:  for details). There are watches incoming, with to me both new brands and complications but I will need to wait about two weeks to get them. 

So here’s two shots from me, both of the P15, both in the new environment. 

The first one is from October, when we took a first glimpse of where we were about to move - the weather was unseasonably nice. The background might be easy to recognise 😉

The second one is from today. Allowing children free carousel rides is certainly a way for a new city to instantly rank highly amongst my children - and I guess they’re not unique in this respect 😉

So looking forward to your entries and wishing you all a great first weekend of 2019 and fantastic horizons ahead!

Hmm, New Horizons? Does that mean "change"?

 By: crown comfort : January 3rd, 2019-08:02
So maybe I could try something orange. Or maybe an Omega. Or perhaps another Rolex? A Patek, hmmm... Or even going Indie ??? Actually, I don't like change, I think I will stick to vintage and modern GPs... Cheers, CC PS: thanks to the non-GP owners for le...  

As said, for some...

 By: KMII : January 3rd, 2019-08:20
The new horizons will be the old ones - if one is comfortable with the existing change is not strictly necessary, even if sometimes interesting in its own right 😊 Thanks for showing such a wide range of options, CC. The Doxa and the KVs I’d change into st... 

As is your endless GP collection...

 By: KMII : January 4th, 2019-10:01
A real treasure that one 👍🏻

I find Doxa to be such a cool brand...

 By: KMII : January 5th, 2019-07:49
I hope it’s on my 2019 horizon 😉

you like to play Roulette? [nt]

 By: crown comfort : January 4th, 2019-05:20

Great horizons! :) [nt]

 By: blomman Mr Blue : January 4th, 2019-02:23

Always love to see your GP‘s my friend, old or new.

 By: nitediver : January 4th, 2019-04:45
However The other watches in your post were not to bad neither.... Best wishes for a great 2019! Stefan

Many thanks, Stefan.

 By: crown comfort : January 4th, 2019-05:21
also the best wishes back to you, my friend. CC

Last year we saw....

 By: blomman Mr Blue : January 3rd, 2019-08:55
Me and my family saw a new horizon! One we very much hope to see again one day! Best wishes on your new adventure! Best Blomman ...  

OH yes!!!

 By: Ares501 - Mr Green : January 3rd, 2019-08:57
Mutual feelings my friend! Cheers D

:) [nt]

 By: blomman Mr Blue : January 4th, 2019-02:24

Thanks Blomman!

 By: KMII : January 3rd, 2019-09:03
That horizon looks fairly familiar, I guess - a very nice one, too As for the new adventure, I guess some good wishes I can definitely use, so thanks for those, too!

Yes, very, very nice! :) [nt]

 By: blomman Mr Blue : January 4th, 2019-02:24

Cool Sea Hawk! [nt]

 By: amanico : January 3rd, 2019-15:45

Thanks! [nt]

 By: blomman Mr Blue : January 4th, 2019-02:25

Perfect environment for that Sea Hawk.

 By: nitediver : January 4th, 2019-04:47
The place looks really peaceful BTW Best Stefan

Indeed, my friend! :) [nt]

 By: blomman Mr Blue : January 4th, 2019-15:06

Thank you, dear Abel! [nt]

 By: blomman Mr Blue : January 4th, 2019-15:06

I am in love!

 By: desertimer : January 3rd, 2019-09:46

Lovely shot, Desertimer!

 By: KMII : January 3rd, 2019-11:42
A new addition, theme ...?

Yes, Just arrived!

 By: desertimer : January 3rd, 2019-23:29
I found it few weeks ago, need some care, still working on it. But full set and the YG is so nice. I was a bit skeptic but i am in love now!

Certainly a lovely piece!

 By: KMII : January 3rd, 2019-23:33
And finding a full set is always a bonus. Looking forward to reading your impressions after you’ve had it for a while 👍🏻

YG is back I'm telling ya.!!

 By: Ares501 - Mr Green : January 4th, 2019-02:14
Superb catch! Congrats D

Certainly seems that way!

 By: KMII : January 4th, 2019-10:03
Or maybe we’re just slowly entering the age cohort, where YG is the thing to wear 😉👍🏻

It certainly doesn’t lack charm...

 By: KMII : January 3rd, 2019-23:34
Not my metal either but find myself drawn to YG watches more and more. Maybe it is getting old 😂

Most certainly not 😊

 By: KMII : January 4th, 2019-00:17
Nothing to worry about on that front 👍🏻

Not old; but grown up. [nt]

 By: Arie - Mr Orange : January 6th, 2019-06:04

YG is the new black! Best Blomman

VC&A Moon Watch [nt]

Oh, most certainly, Cpt Scarlet!

 By: KMII : January 3rd, 2019-19:32
Now for the ultimate question, what’s the piece you have posted - never seen it before 👌🏻🤷🏻‍♂️

Need to check them out, then 👍🏻

 By: KMII : January 4th, 2019-03:44
Thanks for clarifying 🙏🏻

Thank you Abel..

 By: Cpt Scarlet : January 4th, 2019-11:25
As soon as I finish polishing I will post some more !

New Horizons = Newest Watch and 1st Purchase of 2019

 By: reintitan - Mr. Roboto : January 3rd, 2019-13:16
Ordered on January 2, 2019 and delivered on January 3rd, 2019! 😮👍🥳🎊 The unboxing... MASSIVE box with no shipping label, name or details (never seen this before). Delivered by FEDEX. I’d like to “blame” 😜 Ahoi, Abel and the other enablers on this forum for...  

Congrats, my friend! [nt]

 By: amanico : January 3rd, 2019-15:47

Thank you :-) [nt]

 By: reintitan - Mr. Roboto : January 3rd, 2019-15:56

Fantastic start, Reintitan!

 By: KMII : January 3rd, 2019-19:35
And boxes within boxes... as you said, enablers aka Vlads can be very dangerous to one’s wallet but very helpful for one’s collection 😉 If I recall correctly you have more incoming by this weekend? If so, feel free to share!

Hopefully later this month, but we'll see.

 By: reintitan - Mr. Roboto : January 4th, 2019-01:07
I still have 2 from last year pending delivery with no finalized schedule.

So in eager anticipation...

 By: KMII : January 4th, 2019-01:24
Similar here, one underway (albeit to the old country) and two on the cusp of getting. Can hardly wait...


 By: blomman Mr Blue : January 4th, 2019-02:27
Yes, Ahoi and Able are dangerous guys! Best Blomman

Dangerous, or very helpful 😉

 By: KMII : January 4th, 2019-03:45
Depending on definition 😁

It’s all a matter of perspective 😉

 By: KMII : January 4th, 2019-10:06
I guess the Vlads are helpful for us while our significant others are occasionally less welcoming of the help 😂

Big truth!! Lol! [nt]

 By: Subexplorer : January 4th, 2019-10:14

Oh well...

 By: KMII : January 4th, 2019-10:20
At least adds some spice to the relationships 😂

Lol!! Sure!! [nt]

 By: Subexplorer : January 5th, 2019-12:54

Wow, the unboxing was a real experience...

 By: nitediver : January 4th, 2019-04:51
Which required patience I guess, but that’s a good virtue for us collectors Enjoy and share more pictures Stefan

Thanks Stefan

 By: reintitan - Mr. Roboto : January 4th, 2019-10:30
Some pictures got posted in the wrong order/duplicated but I tried ;-) More pics forthcoming...

Nice unboxing!

 By: Ares501 - Mr Green : January 4th, 2019-04:58
Congrats! Cheers D

Thank you Mr. Green! [nt]

 By: reintitan - Mr. Roboto : January 4th, 2019-10:30

Thank your Abel for helping to push me over the edge :-)

 By: reintitan - Mr. Roboto : January 4th, 2019-10:32
I really thought I was done with Panerai, but your photos of the 721 kept putting it in my mind until resistance was futile

Thank you for your kind words my friend Reintitan!! I´m happy to serve as inspiration to a new Pam for you. We passionate watch lovers can´t never say: I´m done! Lol!

 By: Subexplorer : January 4th, 2019-11:20
This is a very interesting model and I´m sure that you will be enjoying and loving so much. Chers and Hagwe! Abel

Superb Panerai !...

 By: Cpt Scarlet : January 4th, 2019-15:02
Congratulations, enjoy !

Thanks Cpt! [nt]

Happy to contribute to your first WS from Moscow!

 By: DruidPadj : January 3rd, 2019-13:32
New directions. Enjoy your new digs, K. Happy New Year. ...  

Thanks Padj!

 By: KMII : January 3rd, 2019-19:41
The digs are interesting 😉 Lots more space, which we all enjoy and a slightly different taste in furniture, which makes it ‘new’. Getting settled in, although the process will really finish when our things arrive 👍🏻 Now to the watches - the UJ and Vicente... 

Nothing much to tell.

 By: DruidPadj : January 4th, 2019-05:45
I saw them; they were very inexpensive; and they both had original boxes, one with the warranty booklet. Kind of cool. The round case piece is Swiss; I'm not sure about the shaped watch. I think it could have been assembled here in the States, using Swiss... 

A proud tradition, semi-local assembly to forego high import duties...

 By: KMII : January 4th, 2019-10:08
Even Philippe Dufour headed one such operation in the Caribbean earlier in his career 😉

Jules Jürgensen was bought by two American companies in a row, during the 20th Century.

 By: DruidPadj : January 4th, 2019-12:46
At first the watches continued to be made in Switzerland at the same manufactory. At some point that ended and JJ started buying parts from various suppliers and assembling them, first in Switzerland and then in the United States. They finally went out of... 

Could be a fun entry level line, like a SUF to Sarpaneva 👍🏻

 By: KMII : January 4th, 2019-22:27
Thanks for the history, Padj, much appreciated!

The Black UJ!!! Wow! [nt]

 By: amanico : January 4th, 2019-00:34

Thanks, Nico.

 By: DruidPadj : January 4th, 2019-05:46
I had it specially made-WG with these lugs only comes with a blue dial.

You got that right! [nt]

 By: DruidPadj : January 4th, 2019-12:38

Your UJ looks great..

 By: Cpt Scarlet : January 4th, 2019-04:15
Happy New Year to you !

Thank you 👍 [nt]

 By: Cpt Scarlet : January 4th, 2019-07:00

Would like to know more and see some close ups of white dialed vintages

 By: Ares501 - Mr Green : January 4th, 2019-04:59
Cheers D P.S. Are you turning vintage on me!!?

I turned vintage a long time ago.;-)

 By: DruidPadj : January 4th, 2019-05:50
As for collecting-no, not really. As I stated above, I just saw these at the same time and they looked like they'd be fun. You are the King of Vintage. I wouldn't dare attempt to dethrone you!

Gracias, Abel!

 By: DruidPadj : January 5th, 2019-05:47
And to you, amigo!

It truly is top-notch.

 By: DruidPadj : January 5th, 2019-05:47
Thanks for looking.

I don't think so.

 By: DruidPadj : January 5th, 2019-10:22
UJS owns rose engines, and do their own guilloche work. You know this is where KV honed his skills.

I do...

 By: KMII : January 5th, 2019-11:03
Yet from what I remember, his Comblemine operation supplies UJ with dials, too (amongst other, similarly reputable brands)...

I will look into this. [nt]

 By: DruidPadj : January 6th, 2019-05:41

Great shots!

I love the Cocoa Puffs background.

Merci, Mon ami. [nt]

Two fantastic watches, four great shots!

 By: KMII : January 3rd, 2019-19:48
The first geography I do not recognise, the second you have made famous in the meantime 👍🏻 I guess the Air King is your first non-(semi)sports Rolex and the P15 the only Zenith so far? 😊

Thanks for lifting the mystery 👍🏻

 By: KMII : January 4th, 2019-00:43
Once seems not to have been enough in terms of my Valencia visits 😉

Some excellent photos..

Stopped craving?!

Na, only changed it! Best Blomman

Wise words of wise man! [nt]

One does stop at some point...

 By: KMII : January 4th, 2019-03:47
For some this only happens six feet under 😉

That certainly has changed your horizons, D 😊

 By: KMII : January 4th, 2019-03:47
Never seen you as enthusiastic about a watch before and so consistently 👍🏻 Cool shot, too!

Last year was breaking point year

And I believe there’s something other fun and independent on the cards for you, too? 😉👍🏻

Yes thats correct, i even got two more great watches incoming 😉

One Fun ( you know which one )and a other grail watch 🤗. Will tell you more a about the other grail soon 😉

Then it looks like 2019 will be truly spectacular!

Looking forward to finding out what your grail is 👌🏻

Thank you so much for your kind wishes, Abel...

And your horizon shots - simply out of this world 👌🏻 Especially love the seaside ones!

One can see that, Abel!

 By: KMII : January 5th, 2019-20:59
I would love it if our next home is closer to the sea 🤞🏻 Love it yet spent far too little time at / next to the sea over the last years. Got to change that.

Fantastic horizon shots, Abel! [nt]

These are a great demonstration that quartz doesn’t need to mean cheap. The zaratsu polishing, the atom clock like accuracy, the much stronger motor to move the typical GS hands... 👌🏻

the Grand Seikos make simplicity look easy...

change of horizon

 By: nitediver : January 4th, 2019-12:12
New horizons....means something has to stay behind in order to make place for something new, right? I had to say goodbye to a few pieces last year...all of them nice, but then sometimes you need a change. GP with fancy dial and lugs from the 1950's Minerv...  

Quite a rotoation!

This is an interesting take on the subject, Stefan!

Doing it your way certainly has one re-examine the collection critically on a regular basis. And your additions of 2018 are all superb, and very diverse at the same time. Looking forward to seeing where your journey goes in 2019 👍🏻

Not really modernized. Rather let some pieces go that i didn't really waer often , regarless if new or old.

 By: nitediver : January 6th, 2019-01:25
The Vintage 1945 with blue dial for example is a super nice piece, but for whatever reasons which I also do not understand, it was hardly on my wrist. The Sinn 103 ST C was a very recent addition, and it is nice, but it clearly has not the same perceived ...

What a composition - and what a Zodiac!

 By: KMII : January 4th, 2019-22:55
Any ideas what modern watch you would consider? Or waiting for SIHH and Basel?

No idea to be honest ...

 By: Ludi : January 5th, 2019-05:09
... I guess I’m tritium addicted only

That may be difficult in a new watch...

Colored superluminova being a not quite equivalent alternative...

Great Zodiac ! [nt]

Going Dutch

 By: NT931 : January 5th, 2019-03:49
Towards the end of 2018, I took a fairly big step into indie horology, and acquired this 1941 Remontoire. I guess it was a new horizon for me - I had never bought a Dutch watch before, and while I had dipped my toes into indies with a Habring Erwin and a ...  

Beautiful watch.

 By: DruidPadj : January 5th, 2019-05:57
Congratulations for nailing this one.

A fantastic choice and congratulations on reaching for these new horizons, NT931!

 By: KMII : January 5th, 2019-08:00
A superb choice! Seen one in Switzerland last year and have been immensely impressed. Maybe these are horizons I should head towards at some point, too...


 By: Watchonthewrist : January 5th, 2019-14:36
HUGE Congrats with your amazing piece of dutchpride 👌🏻😘. Cant wait to get mine 1941 . I didnt opt for a KV dail because i allready own a Salmon guilloche dail . But i have to admit yours looks gorgeous 🤤

Just the normal Salmon dail my friend

Normal or guilloche dial for the Remontoire , both are beautiful in their own way, and besides, there's always the bewitching backside to drool over!

Sometimes going Dutch isn’t a bad thing at all!

You got three fantastic watches to have on the wrist when exploring new horizons! Each different, each with its own charm. The Explorer and GS GMT I also own them and ...

 By: Subexplorer : January 5th, 2019-12:47
... I well know how beautiful and great watches are. The Ebel World Timer is a beautiful watch I´d love to own in my collection. It has one of my favorite complications. You can´t go wrong with any of them! Hagwe my friend! Abel

Thanks---love your sea dweller.

Unfortunately,i'm not into diving,just the occasional snorkelling. best henry

My pleasure Henry!! Thank you for your kind comments! Glad you like the SD!! I used to scuba dive in the past, and enjoyed it so much for many decades...

I was in the trade decades ago . . .

All I can say...

 By: KMII : January 6th, 2019-21:03
For someone without the knowledge it all sounds very convincing, Art! If you ever manage all that I’d love to come listen 👍🏻

I see our capacities for Vlading...

Very, very cool, Art!

 By: KMII : January 5th, 2019-21:05
Setting it all up might take a day or two but having WPS at your fingertips in any queue you spend time in (and in traffic jams) is certainly worth the effort! Looking forward to seeing more phone shots and have a great ana-digi Sunday!

Great my dear friend Art!! Welcome to the Hi Tech World!! I went through the same road not long ago! Not easy for me either! And I must confess that...

To an extent it’s a journey we all have to embark on on a semi permanent basis...

I have to wait until one of my nephews . . .

Guessing you didn't get an iPhone.

 By: Arie - Mr Orange : January 6th, 2019-06:01
Otherwise you would be kicking it already and with easy. Yes there is a plus side for using the ‘devils’ products 😜

One thing I never got...

 By: KMII : January 6th, 2019-06:06
Is how their phones are relatively usable, while their laptops - from my perspective at least - are not. Had two and returned to PCs both times, thoroughly disappointed. And that’s saying something for someone who’s never been a fan of MS.

It is an iPhone 8. You underestimate . . .

 By: Dr No : January 6th, 2019-08:57
. . . the depth of my technical ignorance.

You will succeed, Art!
