That's right - free. There have been wristwatch giveaways in the past and there will no doubt be many more in the future, but dear readers here is a competition well worth the bother of entering - up for grabs is a Schofield Signalman DLC - and it's the last of a limited run to boot.
Regular readers will have read our glowing (no pun intended..) review of this watch - here's what we said:
".....When it comes to watches with an English heritage, it matters not if they are English-made or simply designed by an Englishman, there is a certain “something” which sets them apart – low-key features, restrained design, quality build and a few quirky touches. The Signalman takes its name and design inspiration from that most robust and heroic of structures – the lighthouse. The references are subtle, the ever-so-slightly tapering case, the magnified lens-styled meeting of sapphire crystal and bezel, on the dial a light beam motif which serves to indicate the power reserve and a caseback engraving. All are thematic and original features. Two small series editions are on offer – steel or black DLC coated steel. The former is presented with a quite stunning mirror polished bezel, the DLC version downplays the reserved, slightly utilitarian form of the piece even further"
The clever chaps at Schofield are not only adept in the art of designing fine timepieces but are also quite brilliant when it comes to inspired marketing and this competition really is brilliant - don't take our word for it, nip on over to their website to find out more, and perhaps while you're here dip into our archives and find out what we thought of the Schofield Blacklamp Carbon watchcomplete with tritium gas-lit crown and Moonglow ring.
