    Thousandth post giveaway - Now Closed

    Well, well, here we are, three years and 1000 posts later!
    As is traditional around these parts, I'm going to celebrate my thousandth post with a give away competition.

    One of these watches will be given away to the first person that can correctly guess what the time was on this watch before it was set and went into the winder?
    Can you guess which watch is up for grabs?



    You probably guessed correctly, it's the Vostok!






    This is a nice, almost unused Vostok Amphibia. It's gained 26 seconds in a day in the winder, so about par for the course.
    It has had a quality re-lume from a fellow TZer before I acquired it, so it's a slight improvement on stock.
    Comes with B&P! :)

    Get those guesses in, closest to the time the watch last stopped will get a PM from me for their address.
    I'll close the entries when I log in to TZ on Saturday.
    Happy guessing folks!

    What a splendid thing to do, well done and thanks.

    Assuming it has to be a 24-hr and not 12-hr guess (!), 05.49.

    Good on you OP!

    11.52

    I am guessing its a "daytime" watch (not for evening wear, not that it only works during the day!).
    I am also guessing that you only wore it at the weekend.
    Furthermore, I guess that Saturday is "late getting up after a week of work day".

    Thus you last set the time on this piece at 09:30 on a Saturday morning

    Then wore it until beer o'clock.

    It has a 31 hour power reserve.

    Therefore it conked out at beer o'clock + 31hrs

    My scientifically calcumalated guesstimate is 00:34:47 Monday.

    Gift wrapped please, blue paper.
