Crown Watch Blog Survey: We Have A Winner!Written by Melissa Kong
When Crown Watch Blog turned one in November last year, we conducted a survey to get to know our readers better. The prize for one lucky respondent? A sleek and stylish Swatch Sistem51 Irony timepiece.
Held from November through to December 2016, Crown's readership survey drew numerous responses and gave us fascinating insights into what readers wanted to see more of on our website. In fact, we're taking them really seriously, and you'll start seeing even more exciting online content soon such as video reviews and watch comparisons.
The Swatch Sistem51 Irony was won by Tan Keng Guan, a 45-year-old systems engineer who found out about the survey on Crown's Facebook page. A watch lover, Tan owns more than 10 timepieces but says they aren't all expensive. "Some brands in my collection include Casio, TAG Heuer, Citizen, Omega and Panerai. My favourite is probably the Panerai PAM 287 Radiomir Black Seal," he discloses.
He also credits his aunt with piquing his interest in timepieces. I was nine years old when my aunt gave me an automatic Citizen watch which I still own today! That probably started it all," Tan shares.

Like most people these days, Melissa tells the time with her phone. She considers serious timepieces works of art and thinks the perpetual calendar is the handiest complication to date (pun not intended). She's also a Grammar Nazi but promises not to judge if you can't tell the difference between "guilloche" and "guillotine".
