    As I was fortunate enough to win part 5 -the Invicta- it is my turn to offer a watch or two.
    I will offer one watch and if we get more than 35 entries a second watch will be raffled off.

    There have to be rules:

    1) No rules that don't suit me.
    2) The contest will end sometime Monday, Memorial Day here in the US.
    3) Just add to the thread: "Yes sxl2004, I want the watch" with a sentence or two of why you really need the watch. ::facepalm1:: Opus magni will be accepted.
    Sorry I am not fancy enough to come up with clever schemes like timecube
    4) The drawing will be analog: pieces of paper, written with a fountain pen and drawn by either my cat or my son.:D

    Teasers of the watches will be revealed in sweet time and as work allows. Look forward to mediocre watch photography.

    Have fun!!

    I am happy to be the first to say: Yes sxl2004, I want the watch. Now I cannot say that anyone here really needs the watch, but I do feel the need to provide you a service. Please let me unburden you by reducing your watch collection by one. So indirectly, I really need the watch.
    :)

    Yes sxl2004, I want the cat. Reason for wanting the cat: that I don't presently have a cat. Especially one as lovely as yours. Since the cat's not up for consideration (only the watch) I guess I'll just have to be content without one.

    Yes, @sxl2004 I really want the watch.

    It will be loved and cared for here at the Gatorcpa Home for Wayward Watches.

    Each timepiece at GHWW is given its own private space and is guaranteed to be worn once every 60 to 90 days, with the risk of cat dander.

    Hope I am qualified.

    Yes @sxl2004 i want this as of yet unknown watch. I am hoping it has a complication I don’t have and don’t need. What’s up with these unnecessary cat pictures Im putting my anxious face back on image.jpg

    Yes @sxl2004 - I want the watch. I don’t “need” another watch, but, doesn’t anybody really know what time it is?

    If anyone insists I can have our two cats rub against the watch.

    Yes sxl2004, I want the watch because my watchbox isn't full, and if that embarrassing news gets around I'll be ruined, RUINED!

    I figured out the brand (or should I say microbrand), and I am actually excited. They have some pretty cool offerings. My watch box does need a big chunky dive watch.
