Well, hello again! Another week and another highlight of some of my favourite #scottishwatches posts. You guys are nothing if not consistent – and your shots are consistently good! I love how difficult you make it.
Now, I know I talk a lot about the weather. I can’t help it. I’m British. This week has gone from gorgeous sunshine to dark skies and it’s got me feeling blue. So, what better theme to go off for this week’s article than just that – BLUE!
I’m a firm believer in watches being a hobby that everyone can be involved in. You don’t need to have a limited edition Patek Phillipe to prove that you’re an enthusiast. Citizen is a brand that hits at an obtainable price point while still looking good and being practical. Love the sunburst of the Promaster NY0040 from @nicklikeswatches

Up next is @petitesecondes showing off the beautiful enamelled dial of the AnOrdain Model 2. The way the light picks up the texture blows my mind. I bet even in the cold of Scotland this will put a smile on anyone’s face.

Speaking of texture, here’s @horology_fan_switzerland giving us the Tudor Black Bay against (hopefully cool) coal chunks. It’s a stark contrast to the brilliant blue dial and just makes it pop even more.

If any of you know me, you’ll know that I am a fan of a microbrand. They often seem more creative, more enthusiastic and just make me feel like they’re run by real watch nerds. Squale is one of those brands. Now, this entire article is devoted to blue and this Squale Matic by @calgarywatchaddict has provided this in bucketloads. Hello blue!

Last, but by no means least, we have this. The Omega Aqua Terra Worldtimer. Isn’t it a beauty?! I mean, the view behind is good, but I could stare at that dial all day. That wonderful, intricate blue dial. Well done on this shot @az.time!
