Dogs And Watches - A Wonderfully Distracting Photo Gallery
If you need a distraction from the escalating COVID-19 figures, Watchonista has just the thing for you: Dogs and watches! Plus, a couple of cats, a kangaroo, a lion cub, and a goose thrown in for good measure.
Last week, I saw a fun gallery on topgear.com with photos of dogs in cars. It made me smile so much that I decided to cheekily copy the idea and do a watch version. I did a shout-out to the Instagram watch community, asking them to send me their pictures of dogs and watches. Then I patiently waited for the adorable submission to come in.
The watch community is truly a wonderful group of people who love their animals as much as they love their watches. But they didn’t stop at dogs. I received photos of cats, a lion cub, a Shetland pony, a kangaroo, and a goose too.
Cats were particularly popular, and I couldn’t help but notice how many of the cat lovers were also avid Seiko fans. This totally baffled me, until I received an email (and a cat picture) from @twobrokewatchsnobs who informed me that they were responsible for a movement called #seikocaturday.
Yes, this is actually a thing. Cat and Seiko owners post their pictures on Saturday, and there are hundreds of them. So, if you have a Seiko, you need to get a cat, and if you have a cat, you definitely need to get a Seiko!
In addition to the cats and Seikos, you will discover timepieces (in order of appearance) from Citizen, Patek Philippe, Bell & Ross, Seiko, Oris, Doxa, Casio, Panerai, F. P. Journe, Rolex, Bremont, Breitling, Tudor, Cecil Purnell, Bulova, Audemars Piguet, Amphibia, IWC, Girard-Perregaux, Hermès, Omega, and Montblanc.
So, with no further ado, here is a selection of our favorite watch and animal photos. Thank you to all our four-legged friends who participated and all the owners who spent their weekend following their pets around the house with a camera!
We would like to apologize to anyone who can’t find their photo here, we tried to feature as many of your animals as possible, but due to low resolution, some of them didn’t work on a big computer screen. But thank you for all your efforts, we truly appreciate your enthusiasm and kindness in sharing pictures of your pets.
