Congrats to Dean that was the lucky winner of the ELYSEE Aviator Automatic watch that was the aBlogtoRead.com giveaway of May 2011. Here are his thoughts:
"I have been waiting anxiously for this watch to arrive since your last email, and on Thursday it finally arrived.
I was so exited I gave the UPS guy a hug.
The box was impressive and meticulous, as is anything German or Swiss.
As soon as I held the watch in my hand I felt the quality in the weight and in the materials. and I realized that this is the highest quality and the best piece of human engineering I've ever held in my hand.
I've been wearing the watch for the past three days and it is very comfortable and fits me perfectly. it never feels too heavy or bulky.
I love putting it close to my ear and listening to the fast ticking of the second hand.
It came with simple to understand instructions on how to get it started and set.
The box has a main compartment for the watch and a little drawer to hold parts or accessories. it is going to double as my man-jewelry box.
For the past 7 years I have been a Furniture mover, a maintenance engineer and a security officer. all fine respectable jobs but I always new i had more in me, and that I need to do more for my family, and then I got promoted and On Monday I start my new position in which I will be wearing a suite and tie for work.
This watch came at the perfect moment to compliment my wardrobe but more important then that, to restore my confidence level."
Wow, wear it in good health Dean!
