Ollech & Wajs is holding a photo contest on Facebook and Instagram for people to submit their modern or vintage watch in a military setup. They encourage it to be creative. Winners will receive watches valued over $1,000 each! I know pip has one that he wore on March 3. He should enter too!
So these are my entries with vintage pieces I own with a military theme. These three watches were worn by soldiers in Vietnam purchased at the PX exchanges or mail order.
I saw the competition and just think I have no chance as mine isn’t a military connected piece. You have a decent chance though!
Thanks! I hope so. The prizes are very generous. The Early Bird is the best chance in my opinion. It always gets comments. I put it up against a black and white picture out of my father's college yearbook to accentuate the Pepsi bezel.
Hey fellas, I WON FIRST PLACE IN THE COMPETITION!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I just got a message from O&W. Out of all the entries globally, they selected mine
This is the photo they selected. In the photo are my dad's dog tags, picture of the fella I bought a Seiko from which I've told the story about here, and my childhood army comic.
This is the watch I won! OW P-101 $965 retail
Nice classic O&W look in a modern body. A reinterpretation of their first issue in 1959. ETA 2824, all brushed 316 stainless case, 300m water resistant, Super-LumiNova, domed sapphire anti glare, and signed screw down crown. 100% Swiss made except band.
Wow, that is just great. Congratulations and what a wonderful prize! I've been eyeing those for a while. My interest in O&W started with The Cougar.
Thank you! Looking forward to that international delivery! They just announced all the winners officially and posted the winning photos. Mine was the only true vintage submission. Some great photos were chosen.
