Best of #ScottishWatches Week 43

Greetings, friends and family! It’s that time of the week again, when we share a random smattering of some of the best photos tagged #scottishwatches from this past week. Lots of excellent ones to choose from! I was surprised by the quantity and quality of photos, so–keep up the great work. Join me on a journey of photographic excellence below:

I am a sucker for watches in their natural habitats, so @mracekproductions

shot of the Seiko SPB143 with some SCUBA gear is right up my alley. We’re gonna need to see the “after” shots as well, to prove that you are tool-watching correctly.

Next up is our very own Philologus, AKA @wildwristwatch, with his monochrome shot of the Rolex Explorer. He says in the caption that he doesn’t wear this piece enough and I think we can safely call that a huge mistake.

@chillinwitwatches brings the heat with this Armitron digital watch that I have never seen before but immediately want to add to my collection. The brushed steel/blue combo is real cool. Make sure the suits over at Armitron cut you a finders fee when I obtain my own…

Another thing I am a sucker for is Doxa, and especially a Doxa GMT, so @frendymgee could have staged this on top of a pile of garbage and I probably still would have included it. Luckily, he chose instead to pair it with some moody lighting and a flannel for some excellent fall vibes.

Next, @watch_my_time captured the sadly discontinued white-dial Rolex Oyster Perpetual escaping from its mason jar and luckily landing on a soft patch of burlap. A wonderful sighting of this increasingly rare creature.

I’m not even sure what is going on in this @rw_m100 capture. A watch is levitating over a book- binding wedding band that inexplicably casts a heart-shaped shadow? Whatever it is, it looks fantastic and that Vertex is a great piece.

@dr.day.date tagged us in this great shot of the Rolex Explorer II polar-dialed variety. The feeling I get from this one is “Sunday Morning Regatta Prep”. You can use that title for a small fee. Get in touch.

Last but not least, @blue_moose_racing caught another favorite watch of mine, the Tudor Pelagos LHD, out for a casual swim in the Mozambique Channel. Such a rare sighting is a red letter (number) day indeed. I worked hard on that esoteric wordplay, so for the one person who got it, thank you.

That’s all for this week, excellent work everyone! Remember to keep tagging your photos with #scottishwatches to be featured here, become instantly famous, and finally be able to quit that dull day job. See you next time.
