Happy Holidays And Merry Christmas With Quill & Pad! Win Books And Fine Watchmaking Trivial Pursuit Here!
Without our readers there would be no Quill & Pad, so at this “giving” time we’d like to offer a few gifts to say thank you.
Entering our draw to win one of these presents is easy: all you need to do is be a subscriber to our weekly newsletter. Easy! Done! And you have until 6:00 pm CET (Central European Time) on Sunday, December 18 to subscribe, which you can do by clicking Subscribe should you not already receive our newsletter.
We will then stage a random draw on Sunday evening from the list of subscribers. The winners will be notified and announced in our newsletter.
And here is what there is to win!
* A copy of Ryan Schmidt’s new book The Wristwatch Handbook
Watch enthusiast Ryan Schmidt is a contributor to Quill & Pad.
His book contains a beautifully written and comprehensive overview of what goes into the making of a watch and what is available as told in the words of a new watch addict, one that has taken the word research to a new level.
Please find all information and a full review of Ryan’s book at Book Review: ‘The Wristwatch Handbook’ By Ryan Schmidt.
If you don’t win a copy, you can always purchase The Wristwatch Handbook at Amazon and anywhere else fine watch books are sold.
* Two copies of Louis Nardin’s The Magic of Watches
Louis Nardin is a very experienced Swiss watch journalist and now author.
His goal with The Magic of Watches was to build a guide to components of watchmaking in a way that is both easy to understand and digest.
Please find all information and a full review of Louis’ book at Book Review: ‘The Magic Of Watches’ By Louis Nardin.
* One copy of Fine Watchmaking Trivial Pursuit by the Fondation de la Haute Horlogerie
This is perhaps the most unique watch-related item you will see right now – and it is fun, as a gift should be! And it is unparalleled as you cannot (yet) purchase this game anywhere.
The Fondation de la Haute Horlogerie (FHH), an organization whose mission is to spread the word about fine watchmaking, has for the past year offered an HH Certification that helps an individual evaluate and officially validate one’s own watch knowledge.
This Trivial Pursuit edition, based on the popular Hasbro game played by millions, utilizes 330 questions and answers from the HH Certification test. These come from the areas of techniques, market players, materials, finishes, culture, and history.
Those who pass the HH Certification receive a diploma certifying their knowledge; those who win this game receive unofficial know-it-all certification. (Now you know why no one will play with me.)
Get certified here: www.hhcertification.org.
Remember: to enter into the draw, you just have to be a subscriber to our weekly newsletter. If you are not already signed up, you can do so by clicking Subscribe.
Good luck and happy holidays!
