Would this be cool or corny...

Post by leoo »

So i was thinking of creating a website, that watch enthusiasts could take a picture of their watch in front of famous places around the world. So people could click on "Big Ben" or "the liberty bell" and see pics all the watches that were there. Or click on "Rolex" and see all the pics with rolex in it.

I got the idea after seeing a watch in cw of the day that was infront of something famous in london, and thought how cool it was. Does that sound like a good idea or just brush this one under the rug and not talk about it any more. :lol:

Why not start a thread for it on here as a test run to see what forum members come up with? If it works, then go for it! :thumbup:

I suspect the website content may well border the 'corny' but stay in the 'cool' so for that reason, I say go for it!

Why not? Good idea Tyke, float it on here and see what response you get. I have a couple of shots I could use I think.

Do watches splattered around Lorns semi-clad figure count :D She's sort of famous (in her own mind at least) and she makes pleasant scenery! :mrgreen:

I'm guessing that picture was taken the day after a full moon?

Ah..HMS Belfast. In that case there must be more London ones?

(...interesting fact for the day..Belfast's paint scheme is called a 'dazzle' pattern...it's not meant to hide the ship but rather make it stand out...but stand out in such a way that it makes it very very hard for enemy rangefinders to 'focus' on the ship,specifically thaose of attack submarines which are only raised for a very brief time)
