End of the year watch Contest!
avatar November 23, 2017 07:52PM
As a Thank you! to all the members I am holding a little contest/watch giveaway. This contest is open to all forum members with at least one post, anywhere in the world (admins included, this is my contest and not a WFWF contest because I am thankful to the other admins too).

What exciting watch am I giving away, you might ask? A very unique Swiss handwinder from the '70s, a Buler Grand Prix with a Noryl (Fiber Glass) case. Still has the original plastic watch strap (fits my 7 1/2" wrist with two spare holes). This watch is light enough to almost disappear on your wrist. Dial is reminiscent of some of the early Porsche Orfinas.

I bought this watch a while ago expressly because I wanted to give it away here on the forum. Winner will receive this beauty, postage paid. Contest will run until December 7th, so that the watch will have plenty of time to arrive at it's new owners abode before Christmas.

How do you enter? Simple, post a response in this thread saying that you want to enter AND post a picture of a watch that you think is as funky as this one. That is worth one (1) entry. If the watch you post is one that you either own now, or owned in the past, you will receive another entry (so that's two (2) total (honor system Smile ). I will randomly pick a winner, so you don't have to "prove" to me that the watch is funky, it's your opinion!

To make it fun, you can't post the same make/model/dial color someone else has already posted or you won't get an entry!

To give you an idea of what I mean I'll include this funky Czech Prim Sport (also from the '70s) that I used to own.

Brad, good to hear from you! Great story for a interesting watch (looks like watch that would have been worn by a character from the first Star Wars film!) (n/t) BobbyMikeRedux 62 November 24, 2017 03:34PM
