#ScottishWatches Week 19

It’s time again for our weekly compendium of stellar watch photography, tagged with #scottishwatches, by you, the loyal hoard of readers/listeners. As always, the page looks like a how-to guide of excellent watch shots, so kudos to you all. Here we go:

First up this week, @hendersonshorology presents the Rolex OP with the lovely blue dial, playing a bit of moody, ineffective hide and seek. I see you, OP…

Good things come in twos, so here is @watch_my_time with a counterbalance to the previous shot, a splendidly clean photograph that I will title “Discontinued, and best, white OP, on burlap. Circa 2021”

Following up on the theme of “pairs” we have @nash_watch_shots with a lovely reflective shot, doubling up AP Royal Oak Offshore diver, wildly matched with a red camouflage strap, a combo that I find appealing and disturbing all at once. Maybe that is the true sign of good art.

@time_to_lume asks us to “check out the bokeh”. And sure, it’s nice and all, but wholly outshined by that red-dialed Fears Brunswick. Quite a corker, as the kids say these days.

@the.united.kingdom.of.horology brings us a lovely and nuanced shot of the Montblanc Heritage GMT amongst a collection of quills? Cause it’s Montblanc, and quills are like pens? Let me know if I decoded that correctly. Great shot either way!

Let’s finish things up this week with a duo of Russian, scuba-themed shots. First is @will_beney_photography with a lovely shot of the Vostok Amphibia, hanging out with the other dive tools after a day in the deep.

And wrapping things up, we have @beardsforbirds and the Vostok Scuba Dude doing the opposite, just starting the days’ diving and slowly sinking into the inky depths. Bon voyage, Scuba Dude.

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…
