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



    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

    level two winners :

    round 1) 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 :

    Meijlinder : tianjin Dong Feng

    The early st5's were 18000bph. Those movements are marked with the Chinese signs for dongfeng.
    Then when the 21600 bph version was developed they were marked just 19 zuan (jewel) and ST5

    It wasn't until the branding was changed from Dongfeng (East wind) to Seagull that the now famous Seagull stripes were added to the movements.




    Crownpuller : timex ssq
    Purchased for the princely sum of 3.60 + 2.90 postage + 3.22 (inc. postage) for a couple of batteries - All in for less than a 'tenner'
    The elbow grease & fettling were 'gratis'




    As always Ismy

    well should be interesting both 70's both still around and working both styles have oozy of charm both highly wearable yes will be fun this one ..think it will be down to movements those that like quartz against those who like mech .. hard choice for me as love both

    For me it's the digital Timex. Brings back memories of my cousin having one when I was 10 and feeling pangs of intense jealousy

    I voted for Crownpullers' Timex, it was cheap, it has the x factor, it oozes '70 sci fi cool ! Did i mention it was dirtcheap?

    Both are nice, but the Timex has to be my choice this time - I wish they could work out how to do a low drain red glow.

    Timex - it's modestly spectacular.

    Well, this is going swimmingly

    Here's hoping the fans of Dongfeng are just slow on the trigger.

    Now I feel guilty. I guess I could ask to see the movement!
