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



    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 ...
    round four winner: Litlmn: Casio 358 AMW
    round five winner: Meijlinder : tianjin Dong Feng.

    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 :

    Fuzzy B : Juvenia

    Someday I will try to clean up the dial and movement a bit, but for now the original character will remain. What drew me to this one was the movement. It is a tidy little thing and the gold chatons and snail finishing in the winding mechanism hints at a decent movement. The delightfully quirky bezel also adds a bit of character to a relatively simple dial.




    Sharky : Pulsar chrono

    well this one is fairly modern 2000 plus chronograph in very good condition does everything it should counters reset to zero
    so a solid work watch with a bit of style to boot.



    As always Ismy

    The quirky Disco Volante Juvenia for me. the brushing on the bezel clinches it.

    I'm going to have to think about this one. I love the look of the Pulsar and it's an awful lot of watch for the money. However, I can't escape the fact that it looks rather like the SMP 2225.80.00 Chrono. The Juvenia reminds me of the Smiths I entered last time and makes me smile. That said, I could imagine happily wearing the pulsar for a couple of weeks without either a break or any drama and it's a fantastic colour. I suppose movement shots are too much to ask for?

    well guys what say you to movement shots but guess the pulsars a quartz so won't help it much but it might help the juvi ?

    Here's a movement shot of Juvenia. When looking for an entry, the 21-jewel movement caught my eye.
