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

    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
    round 2) Crownpuller : timex ssq
    round 3) DJW : LUCH 2209

    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.




    Matt : certina
    The beating heart of this hand finished confection is a superlative Cal.25.651 high beat automatic, lovingly enrobed in a thick layer of creamy Swiss brass, topped with pure sapphire crystal, and lightly strapped in IWL colours




    As always Ismy
    one night I dreamed I was locked in my fathers watch, with Ptolemy and twenty one ruby stars mounted on spheres and the primum mobile coiled and gleaming to the end of space and the notched spheres eating each other's rinds to the last tooth of time and the case closed - John Ciardi ...

    Had to be the Disco Volante Juvenia for me. Even though the certina mvmt kept it close

    It doesn't get much harder than this, and it's my watch in the competition.

    Both are classic vintage watches, both have a funky style all of their own and both have outstanding movements. The Certina has an inhouse movement that IMHO holds its own against the equivalent Rolex movement, but as I explained in a previous round, the Juvenia is rather special and has a movement that has been used (without the extra shock proofing) by several of the great watch houses, is capable of being fettled up to chronometer standard and has a reputation for indestructibility.
    I think that if I didn't have a horse in the race, I'd probably go Certina simply as they are one of my top five favourite brands. However, in this case, that doesn't seem a fair reason, so I'm voting for the Juvenia.

    Love them both - the Juvenia movement is lovely. Nearly a tie, but I voted for the one with a seconds hand.
    Too many watches, not enough wrists.

    I'll return the favor. I love the case on that Certina. That is a watch I'd gladly wear.
