The March 2017 WWR Giveaway: a Caliper View

March 1, 2017 . by Patrick Kansa

It has been quite some time since we’ve given away a watch with a dial that gives you a view of more than just the balance wheel of a movement.  Well, it is summertime now, so what better time to give away a watch that has shed it’s dial?

Back in September, Ken reviewed the then-latest model from Padron, the Padron Selby.  With a now-launched project on Kickstarter, we thought it was a fine time for us to give you a crack at winning your own Padron Selby.

The December 2016 WWR Giveaway – an Ingersoll Boonville
