Editorial Return of the WorldTempus Big Summer Contest

Get ready for it…

You guys sitting down? Because we’ve got some news for you. The annual WorldTempus Big Summer Competition is back! (Apologies to our Antipodean friends for the nomenclature, clearly biased towards Northern Hemisphere inhabitants.) To be perfectly accurate, it’s been back for the last four days, having started on 1 July. We probably should have told you before, but we’ve been kind of distracted with the news that was released that day about a little thing called Only Watch — ie, the biggest and most anticipated watch charity auction in the world.

Back to the current subject. The last two years, if you recall, we’ve offered beach vacations as our grand prize. This year, we wanted to switch things around. (I think a lot of you will sympathise with our desire for a change.) Instead of offering a beach holiday to our beloved readers, we’re taking it for ourselves! Just kidding. We still love you, our amazing and ever-growing WorldTempus family. We’re giving away a three-night stay in a luxury spa resort in the exclusive and shockingly beautiful Alpine village of Andermatt. Google it. I don’t want to say that it’ll take your breath away, because that’s not a good phrase to employ during a global respiratory disease pandemic, so let’s just say that Andermatt is the kind of place that will make you realise how appalling unpicturesque most of the world is in comparison. God was in a good mood when creating a place like Andermatt.

The WorldTempus Big Summer Competition 2021 runs from now (four days ago, technically) until the end of August. Apart from the grand prize — which you’ll have two opportunities to win — we also have other delectable items such as a hand-made music box by Reuge, a SwissKubik watch-winder to help store and maintain your precious collection, and a TAG Heuer gift pack.

You know the drill. New questions are released every Thursday. Each question corresponds to a prize, and the winner will be drawn from all the entrants who submit the right answer. Loyal readers will find our questions a cinch, but don’t worry even if you’re a first-time visitor to WorldTempus — for each question, we’ve provided a handy selection of article links that will guide you to the right answer every single time. Every question will remain open throughout the competition season, so if you miss one you can always catch up later. Insider tip — bookmark the summer competition page, so you can see all the questions at once and make sure you haven’t overlooked any of our competition opportunities.

Good luck to everyone participating! And don’t forget to send us pictures (and chocolates) when you’re enjoying that view of snow-capped mountains in Andermatt whilst relaxing by the heated indoor pool, champagne in hand.
