    Welcome to the Best Sub Shootout!

    Welcome to the RWI Who Has the Best Sub Shootout!

    Finally, the answer: Who Has the Best Sub?

    Never before in all of repdom has a review of this magnitude been undertaken. In a world first the staff here
    at RWI have set out to discover once and for all who has the best sub. We decided that we would keep it to
    subs under or close to 200 dollars
    as this is the sweetspot for a decent sub. We have 11 (yes, 11) subs to
    show you from 10 dealers, 10 of them are $208 dollars or cheaper plus a WM9 LV kindly lent by a member
    for this review. Thanks go to BKLM1234 for pushing this one up the list so we could receive it in time.


    The review will consist of eight sections:

    1. Case and Case Back
    2. Bracelet and Clasp
    3. Dial, Bezel and pearl
    4. Crown and Crown Guards
    5. Movement
    6. Overall Quality, Look and Feel
    7. Value
    8. Packaging and shipping

    The above will each be awarded points out of 10 by a team of judges and a total score given at
    the end. An overall winner as well as the value award and a best packaging award will be
    announced at the end. Each section will be a separate post due to the size of the review. The
    review process is well under way and we will have the first post up just as soon as it's ready.


    Hang on folks, this is gunna be a hell of a ride!




    The List.

    From left to right, top to bottom.



    Special Guest Star: BKLM1234's Wm9 LV. Not in the running as the shootout would be a
    foregone conclusion and it's well over the price range we settled on but we had one lying
    around (thanks Roo) so though we'd throw her in to the mix. Many thanks to BK for getting
    this to me in time.

              Oke folks, A little patience is needed here.
              I have over 200 14meg TIF files to sort thru, photoshop and crop/convert. I have another 4 sets to finish before my fellow judges can begin looking at the watches. The judging forms are done, watches have been watertested, checked out by a watchmaker and measured so all that is done. I hope part one will be up within the next few days. I thought you may like a teaser tho. I'll move this along as fast as I can but it's a huge undertaking and thanks to being without power here for most of today I'm another day behind.

              Thankfully, I don't have a life


              Col.

                        i can remember when you would get beat down if you asked who had the best sub. this is long over due in my opinion, i can think of a place or two that will still beat you down for it.
                        The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the iniquities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he, who in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of darkness, for he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who would attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know my name is the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon thee.
