@thewatcherist — Grand Seiko 62GS (SBGR095)

“The Grand Seiko 62GS (SBGR095) — the re-issue of the fourth model released in the original GS line — is a key reference that played a defining role in establishing the character and spirit of Grand Seiko. I don’t use the word “unique” lightly here: Tanaka-San’s ideas didn’t just usher in a new design paradigm in horology, it ushered in a new “Japanese” design paradigm in horology. It is the incorporation of Japanese aesthetics — especially what scholars call the “Notan”, or the dynamic interaction between dark and light — that, in my view, created a watershed moment in the industry. It was a “stake-in-the-ground” moment that truly distinguished Eastern and Western watchmaking. The industry would never be the same from then on.

“For this shot, I wanted to highlight the particulars of the multiple-angled case and showcase how salient the no-bezel implementation is. The small detail of the crown at 4 o’clock, kind of tucked away in many ways, is on purpose, to accentuate the original design idea, which was to make it less intrusive and more comfortable to wear.”

“It is the Wittnauer professional chronograph, equipped with rich burgundy bezel and interesting handsets (arrow, lollipop, sword hands).”

@cadencio05 — Oris Big Crown Pointer Date

“The story behind: It is my second automatic watch. The first one I sold, but this Oris will stay with me for sure. I love the design and its vintage vibe. I won an Oris Competition with a shot of this piece. That resulted in me adding two more Oris watches to my collection. I learned to photograph watches using this piece. This shot was taken at my parents’ apartment while visiting them. They have a large collection of books that I used for the composition.”

@amanintime — vintage Tudor Submariner

“This is my beautiful Tudor Submariner that I purchased off Gumtree (the UK’s version of Craigslist). I met the seller of the watch and he happened to be the son of the original owner. He told me about how he found the watch hiding in a drawer in his house, and it turns out it had been given to his father in the ’70s when he started working as a commercial diver. The watch clearly went through a lot under his ownership. It is a tool watch, after all!

“I’ve chosen to keep the watch in its original condition as it’s not every day you find a completely original vintage diver that has spent most of its life being used for its intended purpose. I took this shot during lockdown. Working from home has meant that I always have my watches and camera nearby and they’ve provided me with a nice escape from the stresses of work and the current state of the world.”
