Our April giveaway of the Gavox Legacy generated a lot of interest, and the voting portion of the contest really got a good number of people involved (over 300!). I definitely think I may try something like this again in the future, I’ll just have to come up with a better way (hopefully automated) of tabulating the results.
To recap, these are the entries that we had:
- Tom Printy
- The driver of the the 2015 Corvette stingray just finished his best time at the Nürburgring ring. He is confident that he has made his place in the record book, and GM is happy with the cars performance. The driver checks his Gavox Legacy and notices that he has enough time for a quick shower and to get dressed, before he boards his citation cj3 to jet off to Paris for a nice dinner with his wife. Before he can go the driving paporazi snaps his picture while he leans up against the still hot hood of the Corvette as he points to his Gavox Legacy mouthing, “I gotto go!”
- Should I have the Legacy, it would feature in a series of photos throughout the most important day of my life. The first, of it sitting proudly on a bench next to a pair of silver cufflinks. The second, of it being placed on my wrist and adjusted just so, with the three men closest to me in my life gathered behind me. The final shot of the set takes place a short while afterwards in a nearby garden in the Australian wine country, on a sunny spring afternoon in October this year. The sunlight glints off the Legacy as my hands gently brush the cheek of my best friend, dressed in a stunning white dress, just seconds after she becomes my wife…
- Neal Goodacre
- Driving down a long dirt road passing row after row of grape vines towards my favorite winery. Entering the cool tasting room filled with racks of aging red wine and enjoying the smell of old oak and fermentation I grab my of glass of red and put it to the light. At this point I would take a great shot of a nice glass of red in my hand and the wonderful Gavox Legacy on my wrist. Two favorites in one shot.
After going through and tabulating the results, the winner with 55% of the votes is none other than Matt! Our congrats to him (on both winning the watch, and the upcoming nuptials) – I’m sure we’re all looking forward to seeing how the shots turn out!
Thanks to everyone who participated in this unique giveaway as well. If you’re looking for the current contest, head on over here. And last, but certainly not least, a big thank you to our friends over at Gavox for sponsoring the giveaway.
Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.
WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.
We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.
