    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

    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.
