The contest will consist of 3 phases. Each phase will have 10 questions and last for 7 days to be run in consecutive weeks. Members with correct answers to the 10 questions of each phase (limit 1) will be entered into the Grand Prize draw for a Christopher Ward C60 Trident Mk3 watch. This means if you successfully answer the questions correctly, you will have up to 3 entries in the random draw. You may enter 1, 2 or 3 phases.

8. Requests for answers, or voluntarily posting of answers, to questions on the CWF or any social media platform will result in disqualification of any entry to the contest by the offending member and could result in cancellation of contest.

9. All qualifying answers will be as stated in the CWArchives.

10. By submission of entry, you consent that your entry, name and/or forum name may be used in advertising or for promotional purposes by CW or its designated agencies relative to this contest.

11. Members/employees of CW, The CWF Admin Team and agencies associated with CW are not eligible.

12. The Grand Prize winner will be announced by Monday November, 16, 2020. Contacting of the winner by CW, via email, will follow announcement.

Due to a proofing error, we have discovered an issue in a watch description that has led to 2 possible answers to one of the Phase 2 questions.

Although we have now made the correction to the CWArchive, either answer submitted or that might be submitted to this question, this week, will be accepted as correct for contest purposes.
