We told you this would be fun. After four weeks of voting, you, the Fratelli, have selected the winning Instagram images that have made it through to this, the second semi-final. One more hurdle awaits these champions. Winning this week’s vote guarantees the image a place in December’s final. Better still, it puts the photographer behind the image in the running for some very tasty prizes indeed…

Below you can find the winners of the last four rounds’. Some cases were obvious from the start. In other instances, we saw heavy voting battles (and surprising last-minute swings) between the contestants. However, in the end, there could only be one winner each week. Now we need you, dear readers, to decide who will be the winner of the last four rounds. Remember this week’s winning shot will advance to the finals at the end of the year. The winner of that vote will take home the 2020 Fratello Instagram Photo Challange trophy.

The heats

If you want to see the images that didn’t make it this far, you can check out the contestants from round 5, round 6, round 7, and round 8 here.

Also, if you are not familiar with the requirements, let us bring you up to speed.

The rules are simple. Every week we will pick four watch images from Instagram. All you need to do to be eligible for selection is tag your watch shots with #fratellowatches. We will publish these four images here on the Magazine with a bit of a background story. You can vote in the article for your favorite image.

The winner advances to the next round, which will take place every fifth week. The winning image of the previous four weeks’ votes progresses to the final, which will be held in Week 49, 2020. The winner will be announced the following week in Week 50. That means that only five watches will contest the final in 2020. We’ll start anew in January 2021 so we’ll have ten finalists in year two.

So, without further ado, here are the winners of the last four rounds

@adrian_in_hdr — Sinn 104st

“The inspiration for this shot is the famous Transformer tagline “MORE THAN MEETS THE EYE”, which is how I feel about the Sinn 104st in anthracite dial as it is certainly a timepiece that is more than meets the eye in terms of its versatility whereby it can be both sporty or dressy depending on your strap choice.”

@watchddicted — Omega Speedmaster Professional

“This is the second [Omega] Speedmaster I acquired. I had the first one less than a year and sold it to try another watch. I spontaneously bought a Tudor Black Bay GMT after that. After a few months, I started to look at my photographs nostalgically — I was missing something. I decided to buy another Speedmaster. There could be only one choice — with a hesalite “crystal”, of course. On the day of purchase, I saw “First man” again with the watch on the wrist. In the photo, I used RC modeling tools to make a slightly different composition than before”

@changingtimes001 — F.P. Journe Invenit en Fecit

“I was trying to take photos on our kitchen table before dinner. I have a 6-year-old daughter who loves to “help” and she saw me adjusting the lighting in the room. For my last shot, she threw open the window and said “here daddy!” as I pressed the shutter button. Turns out she knows lighting better than her pops.”

@watchguardians — Hamilton Khaki Field Automatic

“I was just back home from work. I took off my Hammy, as I always do, to take a shower when I saw it under the sunlight. The dial completely changed. I’ve always been mesmerized by the different finishes on this dial. So I tried to capture every shade of it in one shot, the bright and the dark side. That’s how this shot was born. I’m still in love with this watch as if it was the day I bought it.”
