Winners announced: IG mini-contest: #SpringDriveSunday

by Peter Chong on September 1, 2017

We ran a mini-contest on Instagram (@Deployant) with hashtag #SpringDriveSunday for the month of August. We were very impressed with the many beautiful, and well taken pictures. And from there, we picked winner at random for a Seiko Spring Drive lapel pin.

The prize

 

The prize: A Spring Drive lapel pin given out at Baselworld 2013. The pin has been worn by the author a few times, but in good condition and can be enjoyed by the SD fan.

 

Merit mentions

While this is not really a photo contest with critique, naturally the best photos captured our imagination. Here are the entries which we thought deserve special mention.

 

@siying905 for #SpringDriveSunday

The Snowflake texture on the dial of the SBGA011 is captured nicely in this deep macro. Good lighting from one side allows the texture to show beautifully.

 

@kenisu_jh for #SpringDriveSunday

In black and white, the Marinemaster looks gorgeous.

 

@megaroxanne for #SpringDriveSunday

Another good closeup, showing the Seiko finishing on the hands. The watch is a Seiko Ananta, and we thought the water droplets on the crystal adds to the impact of this shot.

 

@gmktwatch for #SpringDriveSunday

Here the Credor GCLH981 markers and the counterweight of the seconds had is captured. Detailing shows the fine finish of the applique indices.

 

@ahonobaka for #SpringDriveSunday

The daytime lume shot is nicely captured. Showing the bright Superluminova glow.

 

@68molle for #SpringDriveSunday

The Chronograph SBGC007 in a crocodile strap, in a stylized grunge look photograph. We like the heavily processed photograph and the stark shadow in the background.
