    Colin, I shipped the watch today so it should arrive 2 days sooner.

    I'll leave it up to you to reveal the destination.

    Re: The travelling Vostok, who wants it?

    I wouldn't mind giving it a wiz around the Black Country. Maybe show it the birthplace of the industrial revolution and maybe a piccie outside James Watt's Foundry. What I will say here is Daboryder did a similar thing last year on the Affordable Forum only for the watch to disappear on its journey which was an awful shame.

    So I think you should be careful who the watch gets sent to and make sure the journey is fully recorded on the forum so its location is known at all times. We don't want a second watch going walkies. It would be nice if this one made it all the way out and all the way back again.

    Just my two penny worth.

    Cool idea, Bloodtkr!
    I'm a long term bookcrosser and find it fascinating to follow a book's journey round the globe from the journal entries online - mine have gone to India, Finland and Iran.
    Pics of a watch will be even cooler - I'd love to take part (have cunning plan)
    PMing you..

    Thanks everyone for the responses and PM's and likes. I never thought this would gain any traction. I just read some of the threads on the watch makers forum. Those watchmakers are hard core dudes and Pithy is on the ball, nice job Pithy.The OP has handled the whole operation and the watch seems to get back to him to ship out.

    There are no rules with this thread. I posted that the first forumer to PM me got the watch. Colin36 can make his own rules for who gets it next. He can choose any method to select the next captor. Just don't PM him until he lays down his rules. Maybe it won't be a PM, who knows?

    The watch has shipped and is on the way to ???? Heck, it might have gone 7 miles up the road to my brother-in-law.

    Well, today the postman knocked at the door and delivered a nice watch!

    Yes, it has arrived at it's first destination..... just south of London, in the UK.

    Photos will be coming soon, just got to get the "work" thing out of the way.

    The travelling Vostok, who wants it?

    Cool idea - I'm up for it
    Like the Olympic torch perhaps we could physically pass it from hand to hand? (Unlikely to be cheering crowds, though)

    Unfortuanately, due to work and family, I did not manage to take him out this weekend.

    Tomorrow, I will take him to work with me and show him my local town.

    More photo's soon.

    I love it. Your photographic skills surpass mine. The shot with the watch fanned out on different NATO's is the best.

    Nice posting.
