Thread: ...and another 1000+ post giveaway! (Now with an additional prize!)

  1. #1

    ...and another 1000+ post giveaway! (Now with an additional prize!)

    I know, I'm well past 1000. Maybe I'll just call it my 1111th post giveaway--I'm almost there, and it's a number that's always had a weird sort of interest for my wife and I.

    Anyway, it's a pretty minor giveaway compared to Iyonk and Sherry, but might still be interesting. Most of you know I recently purchased a Vacheron Constantin Traditionelle; it comes not with a pedestrian, paper manual, but rather a VC USB drive that has an electronic manual on it. The lucky winner will receive a copy of that flash drive and its contents (no, I'm not giving away the original, sorry, it's too cool).

    Why would this be interesting? Because in addition to details about the watch, there are other things on it. Including a nice little movie about someone taking their father's watch to the VC heardquarters for appraisal and service. And, even better, a bunch of details about various watchmaking techniques (for example, how chamfering is done) along with videos of VC watchmakers doing those techniques. There's a fair amount to explore on the drive. I've already confirmed that a copy works, and it's got both PC and Mac versions.

    So, simple rules--tell me why you'd like the copy. Everyone has until a week from Monday, the 27th, after which I will pick a winner and mail your prize. Assuming anyone's interested!

    EDIT: I really liked Iyonk's suggestion to add a sweetener to the pot, and started thinking about straps. I realized I have a brand new, 22mm Nato that came with my Armida. It's never been out of its bag, and would make an excellent addition to the giveaway. So, whoever wins will also get this Nato:

    Very nice giveaway, ml. (Are you sure a sample VC doesn't come with it so the reader can follow the video better?)

    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 ...
