The WWR September 2016 Giveaway – a CJR Airspeed Regulator
We have been fortunate to be able to feature a variety of different watch styles for our monthly giveaways, courtesy of the largesse of the brands that we work with. While we do feature a lot of Kickstarter watches on the site, we have not been able to give too many of them away (as they’re generally prototypes). Well, we get to add another one to that select list this month, as we have an opportunity for you to win a CJR Airspeed Regulator.
As Victor points out in his review, the CJR Airspeed Regulator is not your “standard” regulator design. Sure, it has two dials to split out the hour and minute registers, but that hour register is a less-common 24-hour one. As to the minute track, Victor noted that there could be some difficulties using this as a regulator (ie, setting other watches against it) given how the minute track is laid out. I might add, if I was using a watch for a master time to set things by, I’d probably opt for something that did not have a Miyota 9015 movement in it. By itself, it’s a perfectly good engine. To set other stuff by it, though, I might want a bit more accuracy (which is why I generally set things to my cell phone clock).
Regardless of the quibbles we have, the CJR Airspeed Regulator is a unique design, and the amount of money it has raised on it’s Kickstarter project certainly indicates it’s a popular design. If you dig it, and weren’t able to get in on the crowdfunding, this month is your fortunate one. To win your very own CJR Airspeed Regulator, you have a simple process to enter in this month’s giveaway:
- Comment below on what your favorite regulator-style watch is
- Go over to the contest page and complete your entry
Be sure to do both parts, as we are matching the email addresses from steps 1 and 2 to completely validate the entry when we are selecting a winner. Also of note, this contest is open to residents of North America (to contain shipping costs).
These giveaways are our way of saying “thank you” for being loyal readers. Good luck!
