#ScottishWatches Week 20

As the world slowly shows signs of maybe possibly getting a little bit back to normal, it’s good to see that it hasn’t slowed you all down from wandering the land, putting your watches on top of random inanimate objects and taking fantastic photos. Here are last week’s best:


First up is @watch_girl_life, with this great composition of the perfect morning ritual,. good coffee, good cookies, and a good Black Bay Fifty Eight Blue. I can’t think of a much better way to start a morning.

With a perfect follow-up, @watchfiend brings us a great macro shot of one of the charming little details of the Black Bay Fifty Eight, the Tudor rose engraved on the crown. Macro photos can be hard to get right, but the payoff is worth the work.


Next up, @nicklikeswatches gives us this lovely shot with a lot of reflection and dark voids but just enough light to make out a bronze Glycine Combat Sub, like a beacon in the night. Cool shot.


@Timepiece_admiration83 checks in with a splendid little shot of the rarely-seen movement of the Bvlgari Octo Finissimo, and all of its minimal, micro-rotored charms. More shots of these please, the people demand it.


They say that every watch looks good on a grey nato, and @watch_my_time proves that last year’s Seiko “Captian Willard” reissue in green is no exception. Excellent wrist shot of an excellent combo.


@Hacking_2nds is back again with this stunning shot of a two-tone Oris Diver 65. The adventurous, Indiana Jones/Lara Croft vibes are strong with this one.


Watch_scotland joins us with a simple shot of a simple watch that is near and dear to my heart. The quartz-powered CWC G10. The caption asks what color NATO to put it on, and for me the answer is always Army green for a CWC. Excellent shot.


Finally, with travel restrictions loosening in a lot of places out there, it’s good to see @watchupwithyou’s Tudor Black Bay GMT getting back out there in the world, helping us along in our journeys, as it was born to do,

That’s all for this round. Remember to keep tagging all your splendid photos with #ScottishWatches to have your hours of hard photographic work featured right here, week after week. Until next time…
