"The Awesome Davey P 7000th post Prize Draw!" is here!

Recommended Posts

Davey P    5,714

Time for another prize draw, and this time it's to celebrate my 7000th post on this fine forum :thumbs_up:

The prize should appeal to a wide audience on here, because it's my one and only MANUAL WINDER :swoon:  I know quite a few of you are fans of watches powered by old fashioned wheels and cogs. Unfortunately, I'm not one of them, so this recently acquired Montine (generously donated by SBryantgb - Cheers mate!) is up for grabs:

 I have cleared it with Steve via PM to make sure he doesn't think I'm being ungrateful, and he is fine with it.  Well, that's what he said anyway... :whistle:

The watch is in good used condition for it's age, with a few nicks and signs of general wear to the case and crystal, as you might expect.  It would benefit from a decent polish to remove the light surface scratches, but is perfectly acceptable as it is.  A nice genuine and honest vintage piece, which runs fine and kept good time on the couple of days I wore it.  Fitted with a nice soft leather strap (non-original, obviously).  No box or paperwork included.

It has a 17 jewels shockproof movement, apparently.  Well, that's what is written on the dial anyway :tongue:  It also features a stainless steel screw down caseback, but I haven't opened it, just in case I mess up whatever witchcraft is going on inside... :wacko:

Size is approx 36mm wide and 40mm high, so I would describe it as "unisex" :laughing2dw:

Here's the all-important wrist shot:

Rules of the prize draw are simple.  Using your skill and judgement, pick a number between 00 and 99.  On Monday I will take a photo of the mileage on my car, and whoever gets closest to the last 2 digits, wins!  :yahoo:

As usual, the judges decision is final, and the prize draw organiser reserves the right to add any other terms and conditions at random that he sees fit... The competition closes at 6:00pm on Monday 24th April 2017, and the result will be announced shortly after.  No correspondence will be entered into, unless it is for bribery and corruption purposes, of course.

That is as usual very generous Mr P.

Please may I enter with 27

Very nice watch that I feel would complement my Fortis.

I'm not sure if newbies are allowed to participate but if so I'd be keen to do so, with number 43. Thanks!

Newbies are welcome mate, but you will need 50 posts under your belt before the PM system is activated and I can contact you for a name and address to send the prize.  Not a problem, you only need another 39 posts before Monday evening, so that should be easy.  However, no speedposting, or one of the Mods will come round and spank your bottom - You have been warned... :laugh:

As it's a rolling last two digits, against a result of  2 would 99 beat 5 ?? :sign_question:

Yes.  Probably :laugh:

Actually I got it wrong, speedposting is punishable by a public flogging with a cat o' 9 tails :whistling:

No.

Just kidding, of course you can mate :tongue:

New rule: If you pick the same number as someone else, the first person to pick that number wins.  You have been warned, so check all the other entries before submitting your entry.

Not that creative mate, I've used this system before in a previous prize draw, and I think I stole the idea from someone else...  But it is simple and effective anyway, and makes a nice change from pulling names out of a hat, which is my preferred method  :biggrin:

Got to be 22 for me really. Well done on the posts, every one read and appreciated many times I'm sure (this is in lieu of bribery). I have a thing about silver dials these days so that's a great prize (but only if I win of course)

There's nothing in the rules that says you can't try flattery to gain an unfair advantage... :whistling:
