1WC: Power Rankings for the Final Nine

Finally some movement.  Wills have been broken, dreams have been crushed. Nevertheless, the Final Nine have displayed the foolish consistency needed to win the swag.  The latest rankings with movement in parenthesis and explanations.

9. @thekris (-1)  NATO straps this late in the game look desperate.

8. @Deeperblue (+1) Artistic black and white photos don't make a watch more interesting.

7. @Edge168n (+3) Great watch, but is it a distance watch?

6. @Davemcc (+6) Mugs are running low.

5. @rocksinger89 (+2) It hurts, it really hurts.

4. @unseenhero (+2) Staying under the radar.

3. @TheSharperTheBetter (+2) Moving on up.

2. @chronotriggered (-) "I am not a number, I am a free man."

  1. @TonyXXX (-) The time difference may be at play here.

Who knows how long this will last? @Max is preparing the swag.  He just needs to know where to send it.

I moved down?  I think you need to check your formula, something's amiss.

Follow the science...

If anyone knows how to win swag, it's nature. I'm impressed by all who still remain.

Anybody here a bookmaker? I'll put £1 on @chronotriggered to take the victory. I think @Deeperblue and @chronotriggered are joint favourites I'm not sure which will win

I've just set the countdown on my participation. 

*begin shameless plug*

Bid on my watches for charity!

*end shameless plug*

Once completed a week from now, I'm out on a technicality (having just six watches to my name).  And this nightmare is over.  Unless @Aurelian decides to grandfather clause me in.  At which point I may be doing this until the universe collapses in on itself.

Moving up in the world! I won't complain haha. 

As I mentioned in a much earlier WRUW at this point it's probably going to come down to who forgets a day.

Oh, coldkey and their pretty Citizen has dropped out.😢

...and what do you mean with "Artistic black and white photos don't make a watch more interesting."?  Surely not, that's the strategy that could have pushed my North Edge Evoque to victory. Well, if we all had agreed to sticking to b&w photography, its natural grey on black tones would have dominated the field...

"6. @Davemcc (+6) Mugs are running low."
😆 I was thinking the same thing. That dude would struggle more with a one mug challenge.

The Citizen sat on my desk this morning, and even if I love it, a big part of me was saying

I would be disqualified for having too few watches soon™ anyways.

How about a £20 wager for the other's charity on the winner?

You may have to add a day to TonyXXX!! The watch he sent had to be set back fronm 7/8 to 7/7. The man lives in the future

Before you make any bets, rest assured, if it came down to me and @chronotriggered I would absolutely forfeit to let him take the prize. CT is the certified bad boy in WC eyes...

.... oh the delicious irony of them having to send him swag if he wins this .... I would absolutely step aside to see that happen.
