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



    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 ..

    level one winners :

    round 1) crownpuller : timex ssq
    round 2) DJW : Luch 2209
    round 3) Matt : Certina
    round 4) Litlmn : casio AMW
    round 5) Meijlinder : tianjin Dong Feng.
    round 6) Fuzzy B : Juvenia

    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 :

    Pip : Seiko dual :

    time this is a lovely vintage Seiko dual time a great watch in it's day and very good looking but afraid the movement gave up the ghost so does need a new movement and then it would be a great little watch for any collection



    Ismy : Casio MTD-1067D-1AVEF chronograph:

    fully working 2000 - 2010 ish model in very fair con after a bit of elbow grease and cleaning up all in for 12.90 does come on a casio branded bracelet but for comp come's on a big chunky leather nato I had knocking around.



    As always Ismy

    Working wins over non-working for me. So voted for the Casio

    Also I have no idea how all the bezels work on the Seiko. It's making me feel stupid

    I'll be honest, I can't get past the non working either so I'm voting Casio!

    But I've not given up the hunt for a new movement and I've bought a microscope now so may even be able to replace the damaged wheel plastic if I can find one. (I've just found a similar one but it costs more than 4 times what I paid for this one!).

    Sorry, Pip - I know you work in Watford and everything, but I have to go for the working one.
