BASTILLE DAY CONTEST...And the Winner is...

There were seven contestants with the correct answers.

I wrote the names on separate "Post-It" notes, crumpled them up and put them in a Panama hat.

As you can see, I really do have a Panama hat! BASTILLE DAY CONTEST...And the Winner is...

BASTILLE DAY CONTEST...And the Winner is...

Here are the slips of papers with the names all crumpled up...

My wife was away this weekend so I enlisted the help of my equally lovely daughter, Margot to draw the winner.

And here is the winning name... (trumpet please)...

And Congratulations, especially to the winner Veillotron.

The prize will be on its way this week!

Thank you for this fun, and of course, congrats to François.

He well deserves it as it was not so easy for 1 or 2 watches.

Regards to all contestants and to you

Thank you very much for the contest JB!!

I am glad that Francois (Veillotron) came out the winner as he was the first one to submit an entry with all the watches right.

Congrats, Veillotron!  Enjoy the book (actually, I was given one in Japanese, but as you guys know, I prefer English). 

Best regards,


Thanks Jospeh & Congratulation to François! (nt)

Whoa! I am a lucky guy!!

Thank you a lot JB for organizing the contest, I had a lot of fun participating, it was a good exercise to increase my watch knowledge (I did have to browse the Internet for a few watches to make sure I had the right model...)

I forgot to post in my answer however that I was only playing for fun - I was lucky enough to be given the book at a VC & Bentley event a few years ago (of course, I was only there to look at the watches...). So JB, while I thank you for your generosity, it would be better if someone else's name gets chosen... I apologize for not mentioning it before

Nice hat by the way



thanks Joseph for organising such a fun contest and congrats to
