    **** MORE FOR A SCORE IV - The Voyage Home ****

    Feels like it's time for a more for a score thread. We have done several of these before so the general idea is you buy the best watch you can with £20 or what ever you local currency is to the sum of £20 and then you show a pic of the sale and then when it arrives we put them up against each other to see which wins .. and then you win now wait for it you win the Accolade of every one who was interested in playing .... oh yes no prize will be won but for the shear smugness of winning and a very sorta after badge of course ..

    Think less rules the better so to the rules :

    1) A watch is bought can be a wrist watch / pocket watch well lets say anything ticking and or tells the time can be entered ...
    2) can be vintage / new .. or anything in-between use your imagination on this one....
    3) postage was a tricky one last time with players from over the world playing... I will be playing to include the postage in the £20 ..but I think a reason sum on postage can be over looked too as we will be playing for fun so why get bother with that..
    with in reason of course ...

    the plan buy a watch or whatever ticking time piece you have your eye on ( stop watches not sure on will leave this to general census whether yes or no )

    Take a pic post it in the entries thread then wait till it arrives and then post pics and see what sort of response you get ...easy then when all have arrived. I will put their names in a hat and pull out two at time to go up against each other in rounds with one going through to the next round and one not and we will do rounds till there is only one left the Winner

    Things that was asked last time ....

    yes you can buy none working ...

    yes you can have a pop at repairing them yourself ...

    yes you can enter them none working but just say they are ..

    closing date hmmm hard one going to say three weeks so lets say closing date for buying a watch (05/06/2019)

    think three weeks is about right not to short not long long ( last time it ended up at almost 2 months and if sorta made the whole comp loose momentum and loss of interest too if members are happy with this

    Is there anything I missed ? ?

    As always Ismy

    In, like a slightly overexcited spaniel...

    The first Blandford has arrived and turns out to be a beautifully proportioned 31mm The beloved has already claimed ownership. The Seiko has also arrived and I’ve only tested the key components but they are giving good numbers. It’s pretty battered though...
