Another Karma offering

Post by Mark » Fri May 21, 2021 9:57 am

Here we have a limited edition ##/50 BDWF forum watch. A few oldtimers may remember more about it, if so, fill us in. From what I recall and my watch database, I got this watch on July 27, 2009. A forum member at the time made arrangements to have these dials made for us and assembled the watches. I can't remember who that was and with the archives lost in the ether, we may never know. When someone backed out of buying one I acquired it to keep this guy from holding the bag. Since I ended up with two of these, I am letting one go. As you can see this one is #14/50, the battery was replaced a few weeks ago so it should be good to go for several years. About the watch itself, it's 42mm not including the crown and runs on a Ronda 515 movement. It came with the black NATO it is still wearing. The winner will be chosen randomly and announced on Saturday May 29th. There are likely a handful here that already have the watch so I ask that only those without one throw their name in the hat. As I said, anyone with more information on the watch, please chime in. Good luck.

Thanks for offering it Mark...

I was involved on bringing this one to the original BDWF....A gentleman named Tony did the production, and he used to sell Orsa (sp?) watches. Another member, again who I can't recall helped with the dial design
This was made by the same outfit. Can't recall his last name unfortunately, but he was a good guy.

Still have mine, so I'll sit this out.

EDIT:
Still have some of the original designs in my Photobucket

That's pretty cool. Don't want to add my name as I won't wear with a NATO.

Very nice karma though, for sure.

I still have one of those laying around, the battery's as dead as Julius Caesar. I'll sit this one out, too, but thanks for the karma offering, Mark.

Winning by default sucks, like having the crabs and having arms to short to scratch, but that sweet BDWF watch surely does not. I'll be looking around my collection and I will what I can offer for a Karma giveaway just to keep it going forward.

Very grateful for the opportunity to own a cool watch like that, thank you Mark!

Congratulations NC

Not by default. I had the non badged one at one point. It’s a fine watch that most have forgotten.


Thanks Mark for posting a fine karma.
