Another WatchTime Wrist Shot Contest has come to its conclusion. As you likely know, we did things a little differently this time around with having you — our loyal readers — vote on the winner. We turned the 300+ submissions we received earlier this month into a top 10 list that let you select who would take home the grand prize of a free Saturday ticket to WatchTime New York 2018 (travel costs not included), plus a free subscription to WatchTime magazine. Well after two weeks and over 2,500 votes, we have a winner.
Please congratulate @rozzys_choice on winning the second-ever WatchTime Wrist Shot Contest with his picture of a vintage Universal Genève Polerouter from 1955. He took the lead within the first few days of voting and never relinquished it, eventually capturing 46% of all votes. Congratulations!
The remaining top five vote-getters will also receive a free, All-Access subscription to WatchTime magazine.
The Best of the Rest:
In second place is Mark Newman from Bellaire, Texas, who submitted a shot of his IWC Aquatimer Chronograph in its natural element. Mark received 18% of all votes for his picture.
In fourth place is a shot of an Omega Seamaster Commander 007 looking like it’s about to be tested to its limit. Submitted by Roger Buckingham of Newport Beach, Australia, the divers’ watch is complemented by a full dive suit, with matching dive fins, while Buckingham is standing on the beach with waves breaking in the background. He also received 7% of the total vote.
Last but not least, our final winner is @bharmon417, who submitted this very crisp wrist shot of his Panerai Luminor Automatic. He also received 7% of all recorded votes and was only 15 votes shy of third place.
