Watch competition announcement: a winner has been found!

Congrats, Dan Horboychuk

What up, tribers! Today's the big day. First of all, we want to thank everyone who entered the competition, showing great dedication and creativity. There were some excellent entries with great pictures and coming up with a decision wasn't easy.

We had a healthy debate, we threw some chairs at John and finally came up with a winner, a runner-up, a third place and a fourth place.

Fourth place: Arturo Del País (250 tribecoin)

Excellent idea and well executed. I guess from now we can say that Diesel also made a moon watch. Kudos to Arturo.

Third place: Uzair Ahmed (500 tribecoin)

Excellent picture, with a great steely/watery feel to it. Everything in the photograph looks like it was carved from a solid black of glass-covered steel and then immersed in water. This is a picture that you can actually 'feel'.

Runner-Up: Joachim Rayos (1,000 tribecoin)

Joachim is a photographer by trade and it shows. Excellent photograph, it almost looks like an ad picture, great composition and execution and the little nod to the space mission where one of the astronauts was wearing a Bulova watch didn't go unnoticed.

"Well the story here is that this is the other watch that made it to the moon...sort of. A Bulova chrono (really a Universal Genève) made it on the wrist of David Scott on Apollo XV. Bulova re-released the Lunar Pilot and this is the second of such with a non-period (but I think better) black case. It's photographed here against a copy of Midi Libre from 27 July 1971 with Apollo XV and Commander Scott being the headline. As a pilot chrono it's rather neat and tidy and the flat crystal is all business. I've also swapped in a Worn & Wound leather NATO strap to keep it stealthy."

Winner: Dan Horboychuk

We believe this is the deserving winner because everything about this picture spoke to us. It's a cool watch, a bit unusual and odd, on top of a Small Block 406 in a 1969 Corvette, which also happens to be in tune with the whole idea of being both a petrolhead and a watch geek. Well done!

Don't worry if you didn't win because there are plenty more giveaways and competitions to come and in fact Drivetribe is doing one right now. The bad news is there aren't any watches in the new competition... because this time you can actually win a car worth around £40k.

For a chance to win a Tesla Model 3 or £40,000 in cash, head to the Tesla Model 3 competition page HERE, answer a skill-based question, buy your ticket for £9.99, and an independent party will draw a winning ticket after the closing date of 14/06/2021 at 23:59 BST. The competition is only open to UK residents aged 18 and over. Full T&Cs HERE.

  • Congratulations to Dan on winning and to rest of us finalists. I'm happy to score third from amongst all the great entries!

    Worried a bit about John though. Chairs aren't exactly forgiving when getting thrown at.
