  1. #1

    Blue hands

    C'mon let's be having 'em, we all love 'em, cheap ones, expensive ones, curly ones..... any blue hands caught in the right light of course.

    Here's your starter for ten:

    I'm a sucker for blued hands. Blued hands are my kryptonite.

    Here's a few of my blued hands that I own or used to own.

    My all-time favorites of the watches I've owned. The Robert Lighton Empire. Big, fat and oh so blue. This one deserves a few photos.







    Robert Lighton San Remo. Interesting and blue.



    Stowa Antea KS 41.



    It's cousin the Nomos Tangente.



    A few Breguet hands. First on a Benzinger (crappy phone pic snapped minutes ago) and then on a Robert Lighton Hudson.





    And a few blued hands with lume. First a Stowa Flieger and then the Robert Lighton Growler.

    Do it ! , As mentioned in the original post, expensive and the cheaper end of the scale are welcome.

    My starting bid was only a couple of hundred.

    Blued hands are blued hands. They are all beautiful so post away.

    Here's another blue hand to even the playing field a bit. The request didn't say it had to be flame blued hands.

    I have to ask, Brian: if this is your all time favorite, why do you no longer own the Robert Lighton Empire?

    The title of this thread threw me of at first - are you asking for pics of my hands after I rode my motorbike for 260 km in -6C weather? Talk about blue hands. (Un?)fortunately, there was no camera around when I got of the bike

    Okay, more to the point of this thread - I'm with Brian, also a sucker for blued hands, so no surprise that I have quite a few in my collection, from relatively cheap to not so, from old to new.

    My most affordable blue hands
    * are found on my 2011 WUS CMW Moonphase SE

    and the oldest ones on my Minerva VD712 Decimal Chronograph

    Blue hands come from all over the world; the examples above are from China and Switzerland, but how about blue hands from Joure in
    Fryslân, The Netherlands

    CvdK_Ariadne_75_3.jpg
    Christiaan van der Klaauw Ariadne

    or from Germany:

    Stowa FOLE

    and from Switzerland (of course):

    IWC Portuguese Automatic

    Great thread, gorgeous pictures

    * used to be on my Parnis Power Reserve, but that watch now lives on the wrist of my brother-in-law; there is more to that story

    I left it open to a bit of interpretation, so those too
