    **** M.F.S.I.I.T.W.I - Round Three ****



    Well we have been doing a more for a score - In It To Win It thread for the last couple of months so now all of the watches are in. We get to the fun bit of looking at them and voting ..

    All comments are welcome voting is open to all for those who use tapacrap just say so in your post and who you want if you want to join in ... All are welcome as I say ..

    There is going to be a mystery prize thanks to the kindly donation by Alan and of course the badge but think we mainly did it as a bit of fun and frolics ..

    Round winners level 1 :

    Round one winner: Crownpuller: Times ssq..
    round two winner: DJW : Luch 2209..


    The rules well everything has to have rules

    1 ) can only vote once whether by vote or post....

    2) think we don't need any more do we

    These threads will run for six days for voting Sunday - Saturday.. every Saturday the winner will be put forward and the not so lucky watch will be out...

    And then on the Sunday a draw will be done for the next round and so on till all the first rounds are drawn then the winners will go head to head in random draws till there is only one .....

    Then they get bragging rights gifts and badges galore .....

    The two to be pulled randomly out the hat are in order of them being pulled is :

    Matt : certina
    The beating heart of this hand finished confection is a superlative Cal.25.651 high beat automatic, lovingly enrobed in a thick layer of creamy Swiss brass, topped with pure sapphire crystal, and lightly strapped in IWL colours

    iyonk's : seiko
    I visit the Kiosk after i post some straps today.. i paid 275000 Rupiah (roughly $21USD) for this used Seiko.. it is beaten up but running, it is not my cup of tea, i bought it to participate in this game and have an intention to gave away the watch to an old guy near my house..



    As always Ismy
    one night I dreamed I was locked in my fathers watch, with Ptolemy and twenty one ruby stars mounted on spheres and the primum mobile coiled and gleaming to the end of space and the notched spheres eating each other's rinds to the last tooth of time and the case closed - John Ciardi ...

    I think Lyonk and I might need to swap! My love of clean military dials is well known. As a result it's not hard to return the favour and vote for the Seiko.

    I like both, but that polished steel pebble does it for me.

    I'm a sucker for Seikos BUT I think in this dual the Certina does it for me

    Could always give the win to the cheapest in case of a tie. Since the whole contest is hinged on price as it is.
