While the GA Power Collective Panel Discussion will certainly be the main event of Airplanista's Oshbash 2014 social meetup being held Tuesday, July 29th 5:30pm - 7:30pm in the Press Tent at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh, the door prize drawing** is shaping up to be quite popular as well thanks to one of aviation's most notable Swiss watchmakers.
Torgoen Swiss, makers of fine professional aviator watches, has donated one of their model T05101 watches valued at $214 because like so many of the other Oshbash supporters, they too realize that when the pilot population grows, so does their potential customer base. They are a well-known company with a full line of very nice watches designed for aviators.
Here are the details on this prize:
Torgoen Swiss was created by aviation enthusiasts and watch manufacturers with the goal of creating professional pilot watches using the highest quality swiss movements. With aviator watches featuring E6B Flight Computers to UTC or GMT Dual Time hands that displays time in military format, Torgoen's focus is in creating professional pilot instruments. Torgoen watches and straps are made with only the best quality materials, assembled by experts, and uphold the highest quality testing standards. Each piece is crafted, from design and functionality to the distribution, to maintain the highest standards in the watch industry.Torgoen Swiss joins a growing list of other prize sponsors. I advised EVERYONE to try to get to Press Tent early as space is limited and there is no reserved seating. If you cannot get inside, the audio of the event will be broadcast outside across the breezeway to the Media Hospitality Tent where additional tables will be set up. #Oshbash is also being live streamed by otherpeoplesairplanes.com.
The watch itself is a celebration of the 230th anniversary of when John Harrison won his prize for making the most precise timepiece to date and solving the longitudinal problem. This GMT watch is simple, elegant, and extremely useful for pilots, travelers, and those always in multiple time zones. It has two time zones, setting (changing) the normal hands would change the GMT hand as well along with it. To change to a different time zone, one must set the GMT hand separately. For a tough, good quality, and devilishly straightforward timepiece, the T5 provides. This has a Ronda movement.
