WS challenge for the weekend of the 14th-16th of September “Safe Queens”
Ladies and gentlemen! We are now ready to see your ”Safe Queens” on stage.
Please post in one of the three categories to be judged:
Best static shot
Best Wrist Scan
Watch of the Week
**deadline by 1700 GMT, Sunday September 16th**
The Challenge is : Please post a watch from your watchbox or safe that You never wear but you still appreciate and don’t have the heart to sell - Because It is still a great watch! The watch has become a “Safe Queen” and it is now time to bring it out and share this hidden pleasure with the rest of us J
The term “Safe Queen” is obviously open for interpretation. I think Abel said it best - Please let me quote our very own Abel:
“ I feel Safe Queen is a very subjective term. It can be as you say, a watch we own which has very little or any wrist time and which we don´t dare to say good by.
It can be a watch so valuable (in terms of price or in terms of sentimental value) which we don´t wish to risk to scratch it or to loose or have it stolen and for that reason never leaves our safe.
It can be an owner of a very large collection so the rotation of each piece makes each piece to stay for months or years within the safe unworn.
For other owner, it can be a watch bought more as an investment than to fullfuil a desire or a personal taste."
Ladies and Gentlemen: Please post your entries! I cant wait to see your hidden treasures.
Here is one of my safe queens that gave me the idea for this theme. I bought this watch in 2004 on ebay, and have never worn it more than twenty minutes at a time. I try, but I quickle take it of again. I don’t ever feel like wearing it. I have never posted it before. I told myself so many times to sell it, but somehow I just cant!!! It is just too cool, too original and interesting to let go. The compass, the unusual materials, the strict geometric lines, designed by Ferdinand Alexander “Butzi” Porsche. Made in the late 1970íes, I believe it will just keep living in my safe!
