Similarly, any entry found to be using bots (multiple computer entries made automatically and repetitively from a single IP address) will be void and will result in elimination of the entrant(s). Each entrant declares to know and accept Instagram’s terms of use available from the following address:


The principle and organization of this competition are as follows:

From December 05 to December 25, 2017, entrants are invited to take a photograph of a watch from one of the various brands represented by the organizer. It must be an original photograph and not taken from any press files.

Entrants will then sign-in to their Instagram account and share (in one or more posts) their photographs. Entrants must use the dedicated hashtag #eksowatches in their post to validate their entry. Only posts from public Instagram accounts may be taken into consideration. Users must be followers of the Ekso Watches Gallery Instagram account (@eksowatchesgallery) to take part in the competition.

Any entrant posting photographs other than those requested will not be accepted and their eligibility to enter will be automatically canceled. If an entrant wishes to withdraw their entry, they need simply delete their post directly from their Instagram account.

The organizer reserves the right to reject the eligibility of images or declarations that do not comply with the information above.



At the end of the Competition, a panel of 5 people will judge all the Photos notified to the Organizer through using the #eksowatches hashtag and the handle @eksowatchesgallery in the post. The winner will be chosen from the fifteen photos that received the most likes.

Judging will take place on Monday, January 15 at the premises of Ekso Watches Gallery.

Competition prizes:

  • Prize 1: dinner in Paris with a watchmaker represented by Ekso Watches Gallery (travel to Paris and any overnight stay are not included in this prize.)
  • Prize 2: a magnifying glass by Loupe System
  • Prize 3: a two-watch travel case by Ekso Watches Gallery / Buben & Zorweg

Notifying the winners:
The winners chosen by random prize draw:

  1. Will be tagged in an Instagram post posted from the @eksowatchesgallery Instagram account
  2. They will receive an Instagram notification telling them they have been tagged in a post by @eksowatchesgallery.
  3. Winners will be invited to contact Ekso Watches Gallery by private message to provide their contact details (name, surname, postal address and telephone number).

Provision of prizes:

Winners will receive their prize at the address they provided in the message. If within 7 days after the Instagram notification, the winner(s) has/have not responded to the organizer (by sending their contact details by private message), they will be deemed to have forfeited their prize and said prize will be deemed as canceled.

The information requested in the private message is necessary for the organization of the competition and for awarding the prizes to the winners. It will be received by the organizer exclusively and will only be used as part of this competition.

No cash prizes or any other benefit or other prize will be awarded in exchange for prizes that are returned to the organizer due to an incorrect address or that are unclaimed within the month following announcement of the results. Any incomplete or inaccurate entries will not be taken into account and will lead to said entry being declared null and void. The ineligible winner (having renounced the prize expressly or tacitly, by false declaration, multiple winners per household, multiple entries per person) will not be awarded the prize and the undistributed prize will not be reassigned to another entrant. This prize will therefore be deemed as canceled.

Any fraud or non-compliance with these rules may result in the perpetrator’s exclusion from the competition, the organizer reserving, where appropriate, the right to take legal action against them. Any dispute or claim relating to this competition must be made in writing and sent to the competition address and shall not be taken into consideration beyond a period of one month from the closing of the competition.



The prize will be sent to the winner by post, at no charge, to the contact details provided by private message via Instagram. The prizes will be sent by the organizer within one month of receiving the winners’ contact details.

The photographs must comply with the theme of the competition and must comply with the legal provisions in force. In particular, they must not undermine public order and morality. Otherwise, the photos will be automatically removed from the competition. As such, the organizer reserves the right to withdraw from the competition, without notice, any pornographic, racist, violence-inducing photo or any photo that does not match the theme of the competition.
