    August 2015 Photo Competition

    Congratulations to Sherry for her win in the July competition and a big thank you to all who participated.

    For August, we will have a theme that Jeannie suggested - Animals. We won't say pets since that could be exclusionary, and as always, feel free to let your creativity shine through (i.e. it doesn't have to literally be a photo of a watch next to an animal... ).

    The winner will receive the coveted photo comp badge:



    or if you have it already then well done - you'll get a badge upgrade to:



    Usual rules - 1 photo per person, must be watch-related, entries up until the 15th GMT.

    Our prize is a brand new Eaglemoss MWC watch donated by a member who wishes to remain anonymous. This American infantry model was the first one to be issued, and you can read more about it in Churchy's excellent blog entry: MWC

    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 ...

    My model has not been the most cooperative. I tried getting a better shot tonight, but she had other things on her mind. I will have to try again when it fits into her schedule.
