Thank you, Stack Exchange and JNat for this that arrived in the mail today just in time for my trip tomorrow!

Despite watching all the spam from Stack Exchange users and also from DHL, this is a wonderful gift, and I want to take the time to say, "Thank you".

    I see what you did with your keyboard there ;P – JNat Feb 28 at 9:05
  • ... this is closed, this one is open. Weird. Voting to reopen this too. – SPArchaeologist Feb 28 at 9:19
  • Thanks go here. – Rob Feb 28 at 9:28
  • @SPArchaeologist people didn't get this one. Voted to reopen too. – Shadow The Curly Braced Wizard Feb 28 at 9:49

    @Rob I think that swag contests are rare enough that we can tolerate a single post even now and then that for once express gratefulness towards the staff, but fell free to vote for closing again if this gets reopened. – SPArchaeologist Feb 28 at 10:15
  • Wow! I like it tooooo! – iBug Feb 28 at 10:20
  • @SPArchaeologist That's the advantage of a written record, it can be reread as many times as necessary. I won't be voting to close. I didn't have a reason to vote that the other five people were incorrect. – Rob Feb 28 at 13:28
  • Received mine as well today, looks good i.stack.imgur.com/hxatp.jpg – SztupY Mar 1 at 16:25
  • These watches are made to be branded, so I have been dying to see what it would look like. (They come in different colours, and I couldn't see the MSE logo fitting with the orange. It seems they have gone for the SO logo instead, which matches with the colour scheme) – hat Mar 2 at 15:52

I also got mine yesterday. Here is a GIF:

SO watch

This watch is amazing because it can:

  • Tell you time
  • Tell you time in darkness
  • Tell you time without noise
  • Tell you time in water
  • Sorry about the hour-hand in the dark night glow picture. It took me some time to manage to get a good shot but I didn't noticed that the hour-hand got behind the minute-hand. – Black Thunder Mar 11 at 4:47

Hooray! Now I can tell the time!

The watch I normally wear had to be sent away to be repaired but this one arrived right on time (groan, sorry) to be my second (groan) watch! I just wanted to take a minute (groan) to say thanks as this is a seriously cool bit of swag and a genuinely useful item!

It must have taken hours (groan) to organise the contest and the swag so thanks to JNat and everyone else involved :)

A bit of a coincidence that I took this picture while the hour hand was between 6 - 8!
