    Go on so B, throw my hat in the ring. That reminds me, I have a nice new timex I'm not using, I'll throw it up after your draw.

    Martin is in ;)
    Attached below are some pics of the watch and 2 of the straps.
    It is a bit dinged on the coating, but perfectly serviceable and functioning.

    I forgot to add info on the watch itself, specs and info here https://www.mykronoz.com/uk/en/smart-watches/zetime-elite.html?

    I was a Kickstarter backer, but my original watch was replaced so it's not KS edition case.

    Throw me in, looks very interesting.

    'Tis the season to be jolly...

    (Not interested in this one myself but great to see the idea kept going.)


  • Registered Users Posts: 14,119 ✭✭✭✭ banie01


    The wife pulled number 2 from the hat folks!

    BirneyBau, pm your address and I'll have it out in the post to you ASAP.

    Happy Christmas folks.

    Thanks so much Banie. And to pay it forward, I'm going to throw in a Vostok when I get the chance. Usually terms and conditions apply.


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,931 ✭✭✭ SmartinMartin


    Can't lay my hands on the timex at the moment, so you go ahead with the vostok BB.

    Vostok you say :)


  • Registered Users Posts: 510 ✭✭✭ Pablo_Flox


    Definitely would like to be in the draw for a Vostok!


  • Moderators Posts: 6,720 ✭✭✭ Spocker


    Never had a Vostok before, will be putting my hat in the ring for this one :)


  • Registered Users Posts: 733 ✭✭✭ Roycropper63


    Please throw my name into the imaginary hat please!!


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,403 ✭✭✭ Lorddrakul


    Vostok?
    Now, you're taking!


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,931 ✭✭✭ SmartinMartin


    Easy lads, he hasn't put it up yet.
    I recently bit the bullet and purchased a vostok as my daily workhorse, so I'll bow out of this one, only fair.


  • Registered Users Posts: 10,072 ✭✭✭✭ Birneybau


    Howdy folks.

    I'll bring it the Vostok into work today, upload photos and make it official. Now, what with it being this time of year, I won't be sending it out until after Christmas.

    Speaking of which, I'll have yours in the post today ;)

    Right lads (and lassies/lassie/those that identify as women). Here's some pictures of the watch, not the actual watch because I forgot it in my mad rush out of the house.

    Thank this post to be in the draw.

    Strap is the same as the bottom photo.

  • Registered Users Posts: 13,778 ✭✭✭✭ Cienciano


    Very nice, fair play for giving it away. Everyone needs a vostok

  • Registered Users Posts: 1,403 ✭✭✭ Lorddrakul


    Fair play, indeed. I have had a Vostok, purchased new in Minsk, since 2002. I love it.

    It is a Vostok Partner with an submarine on the dial.

    It has the 2416B auto movement and has been serviced a few times over the years, but not a lot. As can be seen, it is well worn.

    I completely agree with the above sentiment, every watch enthusiast should have a Vostok.

    I'll not throw my name in the hat for this one, but whoever gets it, gets a great watch.


  • Registered Users Posts: 92 ✭✭ hoganj


    Thats a good looking watch, especially on the Nato. Best of luck to everyone in the draw!
    I'll have to take a look at these Vostoks...


  • Registered Users Posts: 510 ✭✭✭ Pablo_Flox


    I'm definitely in for this one, I have had a vostok on my wish-list for a long time now. A great give awayBirneybau!


  • Moderators, Society & Culture Moderators Posts: 11,970 Mod ✭✭✭✭ blue5000


    Birneybau very generous of you, count me in as I've never had one.

    If the seat's wet, sit on yer hat, a cool head is better than a wet ar5e.



  • Registered Users Posts: 10,072 ✭✭✭✭ Birneybau


    Thanks a lot Banie, arrived today. It's very interesting, just charging it now.

    Might add the watch on the right into the draw as well.

    Anyway, I'll do my draw on Monday, it's gonna be one of those weird weeks with Christmas and that so will ship it the week after.


  • Registered Users Posts: 3 garrrr


    Can you put me down for the vostok draw too please?
