Introducing the Watch Studies 10K Giveaway10,000 thank you's for all the support!

My greatest asset is time. My second greatest asset is choice. So when I’m given the privilege to choose how to spend my time, well, that’s the dream right there. That, in essence, is what this community means to me. 10,000 followers is 10,000 people encouraging me to spend my time doing what I love - creating. Somehow a simple thank you just doesn’t cut it.

So in celebration of hitting this surreal milestone this week, I’m announcing a very special giveaway. I’ve gathered some of my favorite people, brands, and products together to create an insanely awesome set of prizes. It’s the “all my favorite things I personally use to get inspired and create” giveaway. It’s also the “watch photographer’s starter pack” giveaway. But for simplicity, I’m just going to call it the 10K Giveaway.

A big thank you to my good friends at Topper JewelersThe James BrandBark & Jack, and Vera Forma Leather for helping me bring this to life! Wait til you read what they've got in store for you.

Read on carefully for all the details!

Apple iPad Mini (6th generation)*
Sponsored by Topper Jewelers

Yes, the iPad Mini that I’ve been obsessed with lately. When Apple announced this new generation of iPad Mini in September, I knew it’d be a game changer for photographers who wanted to try their hand at running a photography workflow off an iPad. This incredible prize is sponsored by the lovely and watch-obsessed folks over at Topper Jewelers.

* 64GB model valued at $499 USD

The Wayland (rosewood and damasteel)
The Elko (black micarta)
The Stilwell (titanium)
The Mehlville (titanium)
Sponsored by The James Brand

If there was an EDC brand that shared the same design sensibility and love for the little details as I do, The James Brand would 1000% be it. Designed for both the adventurers braving the elements and the everyday folk braving city traffic, TJB knives are the knives that made the non-knife guy in me want to be a knife guy. And I have to say, with the rosewood Wayland and micarta Elko, complemented by the titanium Stillwell and Mehlville, you're getting one badass and gorgeous looking EDC kit.

Sponsored by Bark & Jack

Adrian from Bark & Jack knows his audience really well. For the watch lover, a conveniently soft and portable 6-slot watch roll to take your passion on the road. For the watch photographer, a sleek black calfskin exterior and beautifully textured suede lining to set the scene for your next banger. Form and function? Yes please.

Leather valet coin tray
4oz leather balm
2 x Commodore Coins (antique silver and black nickel)
Sponsored by Vera Forma Leather

Vera Forma has quickly become one of my favorite product makers, but you already knew that based on how often this horween english tan leather valet tray makes it into my feed. Paired with a 4oz leather balm to keep it looking fresh, and 2 (yes TWO) Commodore Coins in antique silver and black nickel – which, like the tray, are completely sold out – you’ve got yourself one hell of a functional prop kit. PS: Both coins are exclusively serialized as #2 and come with first dibs on Vera Forma’s future coin drops for the same number.
