It’s a question we never, ever get tired of asking. What sealed the deal on your watch? What was the straw that broke the camel’s wallet? The way the light melts across the domed box crystal? The price you got from that uncle with a gambling problem? The day you saw it on someone else and knew you had to have it?

The matt blue dial colour was part of what sealed the deal on Andrew’s TAG Heuer Monaco Calibre 11, pictured here with a brown vintage Time+Tide leather watch strap.

What Sealed the Deal has been a regular segment on Time+Tide for a few years now. But today, we’re opening up the floor to include you. We’re asking, what sealed the deal on your favourite watch/es? Here’s how you get involved:

 

1. Answer the following questions. 50-100 words on each should do it:

  • When did you first see/hear about it?
  • Any story behind the purchase?
  • What was the deciding factor?
  • Any surprises?
  • When do you wear it?
  • How does it feel on the wrist?

 

 

2. As for images, there are three options:

 

3. Whichever option you choose re the images, please include the following shots if possible:

  • Front on
  • Case profile from the side
  • Caseback
  • On the wrist
  • Any fancy detail shots that show a detail you like about the watch
  • No more than 10 pics please

We can’t wait to read your submissions, so fire away! Please send to [email protected]

All the very best, and in shared watch obsession,

Andrew and the team.
