#ScottishWatches Week 22

Happy June and happy week 22 to all you fine guys and gals out there in Scottish Watches land. Half the year down and half still to go. No more time to waste, grab a camera and get out there and join the photographic fun!  As the weather heats up so does the competition around here. Here are this week’s superstars:

First in line this week is @sumofitsticks, who is getting to be a bit of a regular around here, with a great shot of the Seiko SNZG17 in a beautiful landscape and even a few birds mid-flight. Prepping for some Cymru mountaineering, which is the best kind of mountaineering if you ask me.

Next up is @watches_abr with a superb macro shot  of the namesake part of the new Horage Tourbillion 1, making me kinda regret not getting in on this one. She’s quite a looker isn’t she?

Our very own Lucy, aka @thewatchboxdiaries is back with this very cool (brilliant wordplay, I know I know) shot of the F.P Journe Octa Lune. She makes the case for it as a one-watch collection and I cannot say I disagree. Very ice watch. Icy what I did there. Sorry.

We have a celebrity in the house this week, @mrcasioak himself! Bringing us a fun shot of the Todd Snyder x Timex Art of Pride watch, on a backdrop of colours and angles to match its own colours and angles. Reminds me of the opening titles of The Fresh Prince of Bel Air for some reason, which is never a bad thing.

Next, @the_watch_and_dry_goods_co checks in with a beautifully understated profile shot of the Baltic Aquascaphe Bronze, as it sits around slowly developing a lovely dull patina. I have never seen this one off of its factory blue tropic rubber strap, and I must say, it looks very nice on leather. Good call.

Speaking of beautifully understated and simple shots, @will_beney_photography brings us this very nice shot of the CWC W10. As this is one of my favourite watches of all time, you probably could have shot it on a GameBoy camera in a pile of rubbish and still gotten picked, but thanks for not doing that.

Next is a watch I have had my eye on for a while now, even got as far as having it in my shopping cart once before balking. But I have never seen one out in the wild. @Mediamindermatt has solved that problem with this lovely wrist shot of the Serica 4512. Now back to that shopping cart…

Last but not least, @clock_n_watch captured a couple of Mars mission workers, prepping the most important piece of gear there is, the Speedmaster Professional. I assume the velcro strap gets put on a bit later.

That’s all for this week. 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…
