The Contest is sponsored and organized Watchfinder North America, Inc. (trading as “Watchfinder & Co.”) having its main office at 645 Fifth Avenue, New York, New York 10022 (hereinafter “Sponsor”). Sponsor is solely responsible for all aspects of the Contest.
Eligibility/How to Enter the Contest:
These Official Rules for participation (hereinafter, the “Official Rules”) apply to the Watchfinder & Co. Watch Contest. Participants are required to have read attentively and to have accepted the following Official Rules. Participation in the Contest implies automatic acceptance by the Participant (defined below) of these Official Rules.
This Contest is open only to individuals that (a) satisfy the eligibility requirements to enter Contest set forth herein, and (b) have agreed to and fully abided by these Official Rules (each eligible individual participating in the Contest is hereinafter referred to as a “Participant”). All other individuals are not eligible to enter the Contest or win the Prize.
Participants must be legal residents of the 50 United States or the District of Columbia and at least 18 years of age or the age of majority in their place of residence, whichever is greater, as of the commencement of the Contest Period (defined below).
Directors, executives, employees, contractors or agents (and their immediate families, relatives and household members) of the Sponsor, their parents, affiliates, branches, advertising and promotion agencies or any other company involved in the design or competition are not eligible to win. The determination of Participants’ eligibility at the discretion of the Sponsor will be final.
To participate in the Contest, during the Contest Period (defined below), the Participant must complete and successfully submit the entry form on the Contest landing page, located at www.watchfinder.com/prize-draw, by:
- following the on-screen instructions to enter the Contest including providing all required information and contact details (including the Participant’s first and last name, phone number, email address and home mailing address in the U.S. required – No P.O. boxes allowed); and
- providing your original response (the “Response”) to the following contest question: “If Rolex were to rename the “Submariner” in its watch collection, what should the name be and why?”.
Participants are entered into the Contest when Sponsor timely receives the Participant’s completed entry form. There is a limit of one entry per person. If more than one entry is received per person, only the first entry received will be eligible. In the event of a dispute as to the identity of an entrant, the authorized account holder of the email account will be deemed to be the entrant. “Authorized account holder” of an email account is the natural person in whose name the e-mail address associated with the account has been issued. A selected winner may be asked to provide Sponsor with proof that the selected winner is the authorized account holder of the email account associated with the winning entry. If a dispute cannot be resolved, the entry will be deemed ineligible. Use of automated devices not valid for entry. For the sake of clarity, Sponsor will have no liability if the details entered on the entry by the Participant are inaccurate and the Participant is then not contactable. Any attempt by a Participant to misrepresent itself through the use of aliases or multiple electronic addresses will disqualify that Participant. Entries or Responses to the contest question generated by a server script, macro, or any other automated means will be void. Participants who do not abide by these Official Rules will not be eligible to participate or win.
Selection of the Winner:
Sponsor will judge the Responses and select the one (1) eligible Participant with the highest total score after the Contest Period (defined below) to be the potential Winner of the Prize (defined below), based on reviewing the Response using the following judging criteria/scoring breakdown:
- 50% of total score: originality/creativity
- 50% of total score: audience appeal
At the end of the Contest Period (defined below), Sponsor will calculate the total scores of the Participants from the Contest Period (the “Total Score”). Any dispute regarding the Participant’s Total Score will be determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion.
The Participant that has the highest Total Score will be selected as the potential winner (the “Winner”) of the Prize (defined below).
In the case of a tie, the Participant with the higher “audience appeal” score shall win. In the event two or more Participants provide the same Response that has the highest Total Score, the Participant that submitted the Response first in time will be selected as the potential Winner.
The Participant selected as the potential Winner must comply with all terms and conditions set forth in these Official Rules, and winning is contingent upon fulfilling all such requirements.
All determinations are final and binding with respect to all matters relating to the Contest.
