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



    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..
    round three winner: matt Certina ...

    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 :

    Litlmn : Here is my official entry, I shall call it champagne dream.
    Vintage 19Something Casio 358 AMW.
    Everything works as it should, just needed a new battery and some slight adjustment of the pusher contacts.
    All for the low low price of $16.01 ($25 with shipping).



    Ro63rto: Seiko 5
    Model SBW031
    7019-5000 aka "Monaco wannabe"
    Full length original bracelet
    Watch was probably used to dig for potatoes it was so dirty.

    It runs, keeps time to within 1min/day BUT while removing movement from waterproof casing I must have dislodged some dirt and it stuck the stem release lever open???
    Stem won't lock in and I now can't set time or use quickset to set day. Definitely needs a service.



    As always Ismy

    Casio for me. Normally not one for divers, but this had a nice funky vibe to it.

    Another chalk and cheese choice...

    I can see the appeal of the Casio, but the Seiko is a perfect example of what Seiko do so well: clean classic lines and the sort of neatness of finish that you usually associate with far more expensive watches.

    Not fair
    I really like that Casio
    If it was a Seiko it'd be perfect

    One vote for the Casio please.
    Shame about the Prosecco that seems to be the drink du jour (took over from Pinot Grigio) even though I was drinking it 30ish years ago

    Oh dear, I need to go and make a fake account so I can vote for both! Love that Seiko, can't believe you found that so cheaply, it's an awesome Monaco wannabe... I will set up a saved search for one like it I think. But that Casio! Didn't know they made one like this, it's a classic , little bit "Arnie-ish' with good colours. Gah, which one to vote for, there's really nothing in it for me. Still, I'll have to decide.

    *Edit - I canvassed my 6yo son for his opinion as I couldn't decide. So our family vote is going to.... the Casio!
