The results are in.

Last week, with a stunning Expedition Emerald watch from Huguenot Horology on offer, we asked you how long would you wait for a date before accepting you have been stood up.

You answered in your dozens.

Alas there could be only one winner.

Wubbelz wins the watch with this timeless memory:

“Waited over three and a half hours when I was a broke student in Bewley’s for a girl I was very much enamored with. The staff kept coming over as I nursed cold coffees, anxiousness turning to heartbreak. When i bumped into her the next day, i expected to be avoided, but she was FURIOUS. ‘Who do ye think you are ye ignorant so and so..’Well, as you may have guessed, right time, wrong Bewley’s. Anyway, 20 years married this year, so worked out OK!”

Well done, Wubbelz and thanks all.

Yesterday: is That The Time?

Previously: Wherever Green Is Worn

Behold: the Deep Space Resonance Watch by luxury timepiece maker Vianney Halter: an intricate 3-axis tourbillon beneath a domed crystal case, riding on a pair of synchronised balance wheels surrounded by a time display, hence, four movements symbolising the 4 dimensional fabric of the Universe.

Only two of these cosmic wrist candies will be made each year and yours will cost around €820,000.
