    I am a student and currently unemployed (but still looking). Spring Break is right around the corner and I need something to keep me busy.

  • Rich Park says:

    I should receive this DIY watch kit because I could use a new watch!

  • I could tell you about how I just spent half a year of savings on applying for a spousal visa & moving out of a shoebox appartement (basement, one room.)
    I could also tell you about how my current watch is just a boring Lorus I nicked from my dad when he stopped using it.
    And then there's the story about how we can't even afford a couch, and have a single wobbly table and a couple of chairs as furniture for now…

    But in the end, my life is pretty rad here in Sydney with my girlfriend whom I met through World of Warcaft (really!), and I have nothing to complain really!

    So please, just send me the watch kit so I can boast to my watch-collecting colleague 😉

    Cheers,

    I totally need this Kit because I wear so many different hats for work – Im a Psychotherapist by day (sleek – classic look needed here) and then off to teach YOGA in a hot packed studio full of ever so conservative green types (green-eco friendly look needed here)-
    then its my turn for just me- great food at a hip cool place or a glass of wine at a fun new wine bar (fun- super cool edgy look needed here)
    IF ANYONE NEEDS A WATCH KIT YD ITS ME!!!

  • Angela B Parsley says:

    well because im a jewelry maker and “jewel crafter” by trade i would be embellishing or re-working most the watches or making different straps for the redone watch faces as well as putting my own watch faces to the straps provided. thats why i should have this awesome kit!!!

  • @jakecr says:

    I'd love to win this watch kit because I enjoy creating things and I love unique watches. This kit is perfect!

  • Jason Wang says:

    I should have this because for once, instead of taking old watches apart just to see how they work, I can finally put together a new watch and watch it work. What a reversal!

  • Winston says:

    The opportunities yank design allows us to have are magnificent. These designs are truly beautiful, to own them would be a privilege.

    i fly a lot. i would carry the kit with me on long flights, and when the idiot next to me asked me if i know what time it is, i will say “just a minute”pull out the kit and spend the rest of the flight assembling the watch, then answer his question upon completion.

  • Adrian says:

    uhmm i lost my watch…

  • I'm a technology teacher in New Zealand and this is just the kind of kit I need to show my pupils so they can see how industrial design can be applied in any situation. Also, I think it's a really cool kit and few if any, New Zealanders ever win these contests. Therefore, in the interests of geographic equity, I think I am a very good selection for winning this competition.

    I have been in and out of work for about a year. I’m thinking that a stylish new watch might just put me over the top in an interview! Also, I need a project or I might just twist off!

  • When I look around at a heap of objects that most people would consider trash, I see a pile of possibilities. What gives their mind a quick impression of decay and not another thought, sends my mind racing in a hundred different directions. I see potential. I see materials to create something new and interesting. They see an end. I see infinite beginnings. So did my grandpa Steven.
    Nestled in the center of Maplewood you could find an old neighborhood filled with old trees and old one story houses, the generic suburbia of the post war boom. When you came to Grandpa's house in this old neighborhood, you would find nothing generic. Walking up between the garage and the house, just past his giant cherry tomato plant, you would come to a green painted fence casting little diamond hatch shadows on the ground. The posts of the gates were mounted in cement, but it wasn't some boring industrial looking foundation. It had its own unique look, a look of childhood fun and imagination. This was accomplished with the shining glint of marbles placed into the cement as it dried, and a little toy dinosaur mounted into the cement keeping watch on the entryway to the patio. The cement paving stones that composed the patio where ornamented with all kinds of little objects to add color and interesting shapes. Little pieces of sheet metal Grandpa had taking home from the factory, those little red sticks that come in the cheese and cracker packets, and all kinds of other stuff served to break up the bleak look of concrete. TIn the back yard there a huge lilac hedge big enough for us grand children to climb. Grandpa cut paths through them so it became our little fort. On summer days when the limbs where just right, Grandpa would go and cut us branches and then use green balling wire to make use little bows and arrows. Every thing in his house had his craftsmanship and ingenuity in it. always a little backward, but always wonderful.
    Nestled in the center of Oakdale you can find a not so old neighborhood with younger trees and newer homes, generic of the new American suburbia. When you come to the house I grew up in you'll find almost nothing generic. Thanks nearly entirely to my efforts. If you walk into my back yard you will find a stone pathway made out of pieces of discarded granite counter tops. At the end of that path you'll discover a shed filled with tools and trinkets and things I'm sure you would consider junk. Beside the shed there's a blacksmithing forge made out of an old kitchen sink, and some railroad scrap for an anvil. There's a fish pond made with rocks scavenged from a construction sight heap, and over in the corner you might catch a glimpse of an old fence foundation with marbles and a little dinosaur in it, long since taken from its original place.
    My name is Steven and I learned to see the potential in everything to create something thats of worth from my Grandpa Steven. His legacy lives on in my name and the treasures I create in the same way he did.
    My fondest trinkets of his besides the few tools i have form him, is several old watches, non of them are running, but all of them have great potential. My guess is that is why he never threw them out. I have always wanted to get them running again, but taking them into a jeweler just doesn't seem right for the watches of a man who repaired everything himself. I would love to try to use these tools to take apart and clean these old hand wound watches and see if i can get them working again, just like grandpa I’m sure had planed to.

  • TzlaD says:

    I have some watch designs in my head that need to see the light of day,
    and so I think this kit has the tools to provide me with the power to play
    the watch god and start to create.
    Seriously… in times like these, where people have no watches anymore
    we need to have new and interesting designs and functionalities for watches,
    otherwise they'll become extinct.

    So also if I don't get the kit,
    keep on creating people!

  • AndreyDZN says:

    For no bloody reason at all this kit should be mine

  • matthijsbraakman says:

    When I can't create some more time, I would like to receive some time
    When leather doesn't fit my outfit, I would like to receive canvas
    If I would receive time and canvas, I can become an artist

    For now,
    I'm just a designer
