Another week and another batch of photos that were very difficult to pare down. I would appreciate it if some of you could just get less good at photography, that would be super, thanks. Here are the best of the week, to my flawless and professionally trained eye.
At first glance one could not be blamed for thinking this was another in the slew of rainbow-flavoured G-SHOCKS that keep coming out lately, but no! It is instead a lovely shot of @uaireadoir_check ‘s Smith’s Everest in a subtle rainbow costume.
Even a classy fellow like the Explorer II has trouble getting out of bed some mornings. You just want to hide in the shadow of your giant cup of coffee and sleep the day away, as evidenced in @frendymgee ‘s intimate, candid capture.
I don’t think it is possible for me to NOT choose a photo of a Rolex Explorer 1016 and a Leica M4-P together. So if anyone wants to cheat in the coming weeks, just do exactly this. Excellent photo and curation, @ktownwis
Next we have a pleasantly lit shot of the Tudor Black Bay Fifty Eight Blue, lounging with his discarded Keurig pod friends. @watch_girl_life was determined to find a practical use for these pods and I think it was successful.
If I am learning anything about myself from selecting these shots week after week, it’s that I am sucker for a good, well-thought-out monochrome shot. The Rolesium, platinum, and rhodium of the Yachty shot by @watchgnosis are a perfect fit.
I’m a big fan of the relaunched Nivada Grenchen, and especially the new Depthmaster, so this is a no-brainer. Bonus points to @timvaux for pairing it with a leather strap and a chunky sweater, makes me think there is some cold-weather sail rigging going on.
Let’s finish things off with a nice simple shot of the Vostok Scuba Dude. There are a million different variants of this watch and they are all very fun. Well captured by @joey_c00l as he takes a break from his Jack the Ripper investigations, from the look of it.
That’s all for this week, keep up the excellent work and keep tagging those photos with #scottishwatches.
