    **** M.F.S.I.I.T.W.I - level 2 - round one ****



    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
    round 7) Ismy : Casio MTD-1067D-1AVEF chronograph.
    round 8) Ro63rto: Seiko 5

    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 :

    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.
    http://www.intlwatchleague.com/showthread.php?t=19470

    It runs, keeps time to within 1min/day.
    Originally had a problem with the stem not locking back in place but now, after removing the hands/dial etc and fiddling around (I am not yet proficient enough to be allowed to use official watchmakers terminology) the stem release works normally. Must have been dried oil/dirt that dislodged itself.



    Litlmn : casio AMW
    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).



    As always Ismy

    Seiko for me too. Perhaps the bonus round might throw up a surprise result?

    Wow this was a tough one, I think they are both great. I voted for @ro63rto Seiko as they are my first love and I'm keeping my eye out for an affordable 7019-5000 as at the moment I can't afford a 7016-500x. If I can find one for "more for a score" prices I will be over the moon! Mind you, I also have an alert on my bay for a Casio AMW too, I'm fickle like that!

    Try barrowboy55-uk on eBay.
    I've bought vintage style SS bracelets for other Seiko watches before and they're quite nice.
