GIVEAWAY: Yes Inca Watch   watch giveaways

YES watches - based out of California - produce some of the most functionally interesting timepieces around. The company is decidedly boutique and produces a range of astronomical calendar watches with real utility for a lot of different types of people. Scientists, photographers, movie makers, and others find these watches to be indispensable tools. Understanding how these timepieces work is only a challenge until you figure out what the dial means. After that you come to appreciate the clever display of time and data that is unlike anything else. I've owned a Yes timepiece for about 7 years now and have yet to see anything quite like it.

The YES Inca is one of the brand's flagship timepieces and is available in steel or titanium in a few styles. Here is your chance to win one. The watch case is 48mm wide with a style that mixes classic with "digital." Allow me to explain the dial. The single analog hand is a 24 hour hand showing the time. You have a digital time read out as well for a more precise reading. The reason the analog hand is important is that it works in collaboration wit the pie-chart style dial that shows you sunrise and sunset times. Using the hand you can visually see how much light you have left or when the sun will come up. The watch takes into consideration both the calendar information and your location to display these sunrise and sunset times. This merely scratches the surface of the astrological information the watch provides - most important doing so in an easy to understand and intuitive manner. This is a very cool niche watch and we are delighted to offer this YES Inca timepiece giveaway on aBlogtoWatch. The winner will receive a YES Inca 203.4 model, but an alternative version may be available should the winner prefer a different Yes Inca model. yeswatch.com

I am a Master Herbalist and herbal formulas are stronger when you start them on the new moon and finish them on the full moon. Also, like to do sungazing meditations at sunrise and sunset. This watch would be not only useful but stylish!

A perfect watch, the looks are astonishing.

This is going to be a war between this watch and my pebble (who hasn't arrived yet) so ... first come first serve :)

For me this watch would be great for photography.

This is a beautiful watch. Since I don't currently own a watch -- my own has stopped working and is beyond repair -- the "time" function of this watch would be enormously useful.

Wow what a nice time piece! I love the functions, for me time is everything. My job requires me to be as precise as possible and knowing sunrise and set times with out having to look them up all the time would be great.

This watch would be great to have while hunting for the invasive great python that is destroying the native species  in the Everglades and there is no electricity or street lights to guide the way.

A Yes watch like this would be useful when I'm looking at siting some solar panels.

That's a beautiful watch. I think I'd wear it all the time so it would always be handy , pun intended.

Very cool and interesting watch! It could definitely be useful while travelling or possibly while hiking/camping.

Hiking. Most people would prefer watches with alti/baro funcions, but knowing the time of sunset is really, really good to know if you want to be off the mountain before the night makes you feel very alone up there...

A cool timepiece at all.

As a person who loves to travel this watch would really come in handy but more in importantly it would help me get through those pesky time changes twice a year.

This would be a great watch for fishing as fish activity is often linked to sunrise/sunset.

Fantastic watch!!! I didn't know about it. As a geologist and photographer this is just brilliant. I need to see one of them... or if I am lucky enough... Cheers!!

Love this. When crossing time zones it's useful to know when sunrise is coming.

A digital moon phase watch, wow!  This is a nice, practical, conversation piece.

As a traveler, this watch would be a great addition to my small collection.  Pushing a button to get the local time?  Can't beat that!  Plus, my two kids, especially my 7 year-old son, are kind of nerdy - asking me about moon phases!  I don't know!  The Inca watch would be an awesome way of teaching and learning the phases of the moon.

YES Inca would be a great help in my quest. I'm constantly in need of various astronomical data and also precise sunrise and sunset time. Let's say that certain "rituals" and saving mankind are involved. I can say no more.  It wouldn't be in everyone's best interest if that watch fell into the "wrong" hands. I know how to handle this kind of power and I'm more than able to keep it safe.

Love the design of the watch, additionally it's the only wrist tool that can give me a real advantage when the zombies finally rise. I can tell you that the cast of Walking Dead would kill to get their hand on YES watches!

My coworker and I have a running contest to see who can outdo the other with the cooler watch. This would blow his mind.

I am delighted that film makers, hunters, explorers, and techno nerds value and use this watch. As for me, I will use it to simply revel in that glorious dance of the earth, moon and sun!

As a business professional in the IT software world, there are limited things that will truly be a great conversation starter that will get their attention.  As an avid collector of watches, I often find myself moving from one watch to the other, trading and bartering for the next unique time piece.  As a new reader to this blog, I have spent hours on upon my first visit.  I stumbled upon this giveaway, and thought why not.

Additionally, as someone who continuously travels from business meeting to business meeting ranging from building to building, or from one database warehouse to another, sometimes one wants more than just the mere time and date.  Being able to see other unique details would not only be mentally stimulating, but also a be an impressive conversation piece.

Lastly, for someone who works more than 14 hours a day, it is usually hard to squeeze in any activity that requires sun light.  For someone that enjoys golf and fishing, the sun light feature would definitely help out.  And as an added feature, who doesn't like to know the moon phases to enjoy a nice night scene when one has time to relax?

Odd & Quirky, but it a neat way.  Looks like it would be quite handy and informative, especially on a kayak or extended camping trip.

Farmers and avid gardeners would also give it a green thumbs up  -  invaluable as a portable planting and harvest indicator.

As an IT professional, I'm often stuck in basements with no natural lights, always being clued into when sunset occurs is important to me, I always like to get at least a little natural light during the workday.

This is a great concept. As an amateur astronomer this watch would be very useful for the many varied times I go out observing during the year.

This is quite unique and beautiful concept of a timepiece. It would be perfect to use it as a frequent business traveler. I think this would be a great asset for my work. Important people are always late for meetings. I'd wear this watch all the time. All day long I could make use of the Inca's great features ! The sundown feature would be most useful as an everyday feature for me. When it comes to functions and feathers it got a kind of unique with pie chart, one hand in analog, Sun & Moon stones and its rings and  many more. It got the great looks with two tone straps as well. Great color combination with the gold and blue combo. Definitely would be useful to me. I am so impressed by this watch and its capabilities! A great conversation piece I would love to win. (stylex_ro@yahoo.com)

I'd wear this watch all the time. All day long I could make use of the Inca's numerous features ! The sundown feature would be most useful as an everyday feature for me, because I go to school and my mom always wants me home before dark (understandably) and with the YES inca, I could time it to the minute! spencer.cool@hotmail.com

hmmm lets see, first off thanks for the site I was looking at buying a watch off ebay but after looking at a real one on your site I avoided a bad buy.  thanks 4845 times lol I like the watch so obviously i would use it first and formost to tell what time it is. As i am absent minded and ofter get lost I could use it to find my way home around dinner time and keep my wife from flaying me horribly and torturing me for not coming home. I could tell when sunset and sunrise is exactly during hunting season and never be out of the rules. As an amatuer astronomer I can use it for that hobby as well as photography. But most importantly and to be honest as I can the watch is just really really cool. Lets be real I have a light meter for photography I know when its time to hunt, and my wife will call and nag on the cell. So really I want it because its cool.

A few years ago I was hiking Great North Mountain in West Virginia. One particular part of the trail was much rougher than I had expected, and I found myself at sunset not yet back to base. The Yes watch would have forewarned me, in an at-a-glance way, of the time of sunset and that there would be no moon to light my way. Soon it became pitch dark. Fortunately I had a flashlight with me, but getting back was still not easy.

What a beautiful watch.  My friends and I do a lot of hiking, sometimes at night.  This watch would be very helpful letting me know the lunar phases.  It's a lot easier hiking at night when there is a lot of moonlight.  I am curious about something.  Yes is a California based company.  Where do they source their parts from?  Is the movement manufactured in house, is it Swiss, etc.   I couldn't locate that information on their website.  Whatever the case may be, it is a stunning watch I would be proud to own.

I would use it for surfing.  I gotta know when the sun will rise so I know when to get to the beach.  Seems like a great conversation starter also.

Amazingly compact way to display so much information. As an elite rower, the daylight hours and sunrise/set features will be incredibly  practical and convenient for training in the early morning and evening.

As an underwater photographer the Moon phases and sunset times would be of value as the activity of some marine life at night differs with the phases of the moon. I could better plan my night dives and lens choices based on the expected activity. The addition of the tides would be helpful to determine tidal currents.

I forgot to add that as a photography buff the main feature of this watch is excellent for identifying when that perfect natural light will be in the sky around sunrise and sunset.
