All Good Things Must End and so too the 1WC

We started with 47 brave souls who defied their instincts to wear one watch, just one watch, for as long as they could. One by one they fell to the wayside.

The contestants were more stubborn then I expected and I had to constantly layer rule after rule to try to winnow the field. The rest of WatchCrunch watched on in amazement as the brave few struggled on.

A few weeks ago @Max (weeks ago) suggested that perhaps our remaining players were so stubborn that we had to find an ending point.  We settled on five.  Well we are down to five and they are declared the winners of the One Watch Challenge. Congratulations, in no particular order, to: @Deeperblue ; @TheSharperTheBetter ; @unseenhero ; @chronotriggered ; and @TonyXXX .

I has been really fun interacting with all of the players and trying to stay one step ahead. I would like this to be an annual or regular event, even if I am not the ring master. Through trial and error I have learned how to tweak the rules of the game.

So, let's give them a hand.

This feels like a trick... 😂

@Aurelian needs a massive thank you for organising this utterly ridiculous enterprise. It felt like a lot of work trying to keep up with the rules and orchestrating the wrist shots, but that must have paled in comparison to the effort Aurelian must have put into monitoring us all every day.

Despite it being a pain in the a** most days, my fellow competitors made it 100% worth while. You are such a fun bunch of folks and I'm happy that there are other people on WC who are up for doing crazy random stuff just for the lolz and I desperately want to meet you all one day (on my party boat hopefully). It was great playing along with you all.

I'm guessing since they are here they have multiple watches. Be kind of easy if they only had one anyway. But really, congratulations for preserversance.

You needed at least 7 to qualify.

@Aurelian I suggest you host a virtual scavenger hunt next 🙂 I get the feeling your list of photographic scenarios would be quite entertaining.

Congrats to the organizer and five winners. Quick, group shot!

Well done everyone!

Conrgatulations too @Deeperblue ; @TheSharperTheBetter ; @unseenhero ; @chronotriggered ; and @TonyXXX

It would be funny if you've bonded so strongly with your 1WC watch that you'll have to sell the rest of your collection, you'll never ever wear another watch. 

Or maybe you'll take the watch up the shed and destroy it with a hammer. 

It was a really interesting competition to follow, great idea @Aurelian
