[Previous auction thread was hijacked by idiotic debate between myself and @Aurelian, so to spare everyone the pain of seeing our idiocy, have started a clean auction thread!]
Up for your consideration today is the Wolf Blake Double Winder with Storage! And to sweeten the deal, winning bid also gets WatchCrunch swag! WC t-shirt in size large comes with the winder.
So, for all y’all idiots who are still stuck in the One Watch Challenge…
… here’s your chance to bow out gracefully and still get your WatchCrunch swag.
Anyway… for all those folks interested in a watch winder, the Wolf Blake Double Winder with Storage is incredibly nice.
"What’s this whole 'with storage' thing about?” Well, I’m glad you asked. Check out that storage!!!
3 extra slots for additional watches…
A little travel case that accommodates an additional 2 watches
All in all, this Wolf Blake Double winder gives you storage for 7 watches!
And check this out!
You can program it to produce as many rotations as you desire! Clockwise? You’re covered! Counter-clockwise? Bi-directional rotations? Got you there too!
All proceeds to GiveDirectly. GiveDirectly DIRECTLY sends on funds to recipients in some of the poorest countries on Earth, with an incredible track record to-date. The effort sprang out of the Effective Altruism movement.
The first 4 auctions worked out spectacularly, in which our esteemed colleagues, @Bessio's and @Robcollects and @Ichibunz's and @Deeperblue's winning bids helped to raise $1,350 and $900 and $2,000 and $3,294, respectively, for a number of Kenyan families. These are families earning less than the global poverty line of $1.90 / day. All of the auction proceeds went directly to them, and the funds from the 4 auctions thus far will effectively double the incomes of 21 families for a year!

“Why are you auctioning the Wolf Blake Double Winder with Storage, @HotWatchChick69?” Well, because I gotta hit my charitable pledge goal before the end of the year, and at the current pace I’m behind! Until I hit it…
Here's what I propose:
Let's open up bidding on the Wolf Blake at, say, $20
