If you meet a car enthusiast, chances are he’ll have a nice watch on his wrist as well. And we don’t necessarily mean an expensive watch. Some of the most ardent gearheads have Casio G-Shocks and Seikos on their arms. You know what we’re talking about.
But in the same way men appreciate the well-tuned mechanicals of an automobile, there’s a certain cachet that comes with wearing a mechanical watch. And when it comes to such timepieces, Swiss watchmaker Oris has made a name for itself as one of the brands to have. In fact, the company has created a special line of automotive-themed offerings.
If you’re an Oris owner and you enjoy posting the occasional photo or two on Instagram of your watch of the day, then local distributor Watchworks has a treat for you. From now until the end of the month, take a creative photo of your Oris watch and post it on Instagram using the hashtag #10DaysofOris, and you get a chance to win special prizes. Oh, and you should follow the @watchworksph IG account as well.
Watchworks hasn’t specified what prizes it will give away yet, but the word it used was plural, so that means more than just one prize.
Besides, there’s already a certain satisfaction to be derived from composing a watch shot and sharing it on social media. As examples, here are some Instagram photos we collated showing Oris watches and nice cars. The contest is not just for motoring-themed pictures, by the way--this is just our preference.
