diveluvR's Strap Contest on PMWF, April Fool's Day 2003
These are the 3 straps to be won, sponsored by diveluvR (Terence):
Sample 22 mm Rubber Strap with Texture and Deployant Clasp, great for Dive Watches!
The 1st winner chooses from 22, 20 or 18 mm Rubber strap with Deployant Clasp
The 2nd winner chooses from the two remaining straps
The 3rd winner gets the remaining strap
The straps are sponsored by diveluvR (Terence) from Singapore who sells these and other straps at great prices. I will ask an horologic question on PMWF on April Fool's Day, April 1st 2003 that is. The winners will be picked by Reya, my daughter who has already some expertise in lucky drawings
were about Quartz watches
1) What is the frequency of the most
common quartz watch crystal in Hz? - Correct answer 32768 Hz
2) What is the frequence of the Seiko Perpetual Calendar quartz watch crystals? - Correct answer 6 * 32768 or 196608 Hz
3) Quartz watches' accuracy is most sensitive to
a: temperature changes >>> correct answer is a)
b: mechanical shocks
c: electromagnetic interference
Of course an almost exhausted battery can also cause a quartz to swing slower, but that was not offered in the multiple choices question ;-)
All except one entries had the correct answers. Very few participants, ca. 170 views: I was very surprised that not more PMWFers entered the contest.
My wife had this new great idea for the drawing, which will save me a lot of typing... Starting with the 3rd Winner, drum roll ....
