#ScottishWatches Week 21

It’s hard to believe we are already 21 weeks into 2021, but here we are. It feels like a whole different world than week 21 of 2020, back when we were counting them for a very different reason. Regardless here we are, we have made it to almost halfway. Let us celebrate with a smattering of excellent watch photos, shall we?

First up is @jamesporterandson with a cool pocket shot of the G-Shock MTG-B2000PH Phoenix Rainbow. There are so many different subtle variations of these rainbow watches out now that I do not know one from the other, but I really want one of them, any of them.

Apparently there is some sort of bubble shot contest going on somewhere, but in the #SW world, @horology_fan_switzerland is the only one playing. Just as well, I don’t know how anyone could beat this shot of the IWC Aquatimer anyway.

Next we have @fsohail with an experiment in Ultraviolet lighting, one that leaves the Halios Seaforth awash in a glow of 1980s, neon-dreaming, Tron world goodness.

@Gh05tm4ll has an excellent Instagram page full of interesting retro watches and other oddities, such as this early 90s Casio CBX-1000. Here it is fittingly visiting the cyber garden, whatever that is. Make sure to invite that neon Halios from the previous shot.

It’s not often we get a cool watch shot, and a detailed backstory to go along with it, but @treasureswithamy has provided exactly that. Two cool Russian watches followed by five pages of thorough explanation and history of the pieces. Excellent work.

@Dr.day.date must have gone undercover for months to catch these two odd fellows casually mingling with each other. We all know they are friends, but neither of them would ever admit it.

Breitling recently released this cracker of a chronograph, ably captured in a wristshot by @watchfiend. They call it “pistachio” but it will always be Mint Chocolate Chip to me.

@Sarpanevawatches keep getting weirder and weirder and better and better, in that order. @Thewatchshowfinland’s great shot of the Korona K1 proves it. I imagine this was released to show Oris what a real “cotton candy” watch looks like.

Lastly, @scottishwatches’ very own Rikki posted this great wristshot to remind us that, much like the Highlander, there can be only one ceramic Tudor. And in a fight, my money is on the Black Shield. Ready? Fight!

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…
