You guys love asking us who the winner of the watch giveaways are. We have a really simple policy on that - basically the winners are kept private, but asked to submit follow-up images of their new watches with thoughts. If they don't, I prefer to maintain their privacy. Seriously, aBlogtoRead.com get's a number of e-mails and Facebook comments asking about "who is the winner of so and so giveaway." I am happy there is such enthusiasm. Anyhow, the winner of last month's Tissot T-Race watch giveaway was nice enough to send a picture and some thoughts. Congrats to Scott C. of Arizona:
"Got the watch this afternoon, pics above. I’m off to my watch guy to have the band trimmed (could probably do it myself but don’t want to mess it up). Initial impression—very comfortable. The rose gold is a great look. Quality seems pretty good—no, not the level of my Breitling, AP or Rolexes or JLC I have owned, but very nice detail on the watch, clasp and crown mechanism not as crisp as high-dollar brands, but pretty good. Sizable but not overly so, see the pic next to my old Breitling Headwind. Surprisingly low profile on the wrist for its size. Will work great as a sports or casual dress option, and right now my only chronograph. This will be a fun piece to own. I’m intrigued by the value proposition of Tissot in general (liking the blue PRS 516 right now) and this will be a good indicator of whether there could be another in my future. Thanks so much Ariel, and thanks to Tissot and Swatch Group."
