Win a limited edition Trick or Treat Vannen Watch!


As we draw near to the best festivity of the year – halloween, we decided to bring you something special. Something scarily special! We have teamed up with the mighty Vannen watches and you could win a limited edition ‘Trick or Treat’ watch designed by the awesome ‘Dirty Donny‘.

The brainchild of Vannen, David Stowe has created just 150 of these badboys and they come blind packed with just 50 watches in a super rare chase ‚ÄòTOXIC YELLOW’ colour as seen above.

All you have to do is leave a comment here or tweet us using the tags @thunderchunkyuk and #vannenrules and tell us what “scares” you.

We’ll pick our favourite as the winner!

So be quick, entries close GMT 3pm Wednesday 28th October. Good luck!

    I’m scared of flies. Have you heard what they do when they land on your food? Yuk. So me and my cat, Lily, have devised a clever way of dealing with them. She loves to catch flies but sometimes they are just out of her reach. You can often find me balancing precariously on the back of the sofa with Lily held high above my head so she can catch those pesky flies. She loves it. And the scary flies are gone!

    I’m scared that one day I may be hypnotised (nope, this isn’t the scary bit), and under this hypnosis, be taken back to my early days (nope, this neither, although I’m sure some people are scared by their early days…), sat in front of a dim old tube tv (nope, this isn’t it either, even if the picture quality does look scary today…), and shown an episode of the wombles for the first time (yes, this is it! really.). hard to believe maybe, but the way those wombles programmes were lit gave me nightmares when i first saw them as a little ‘un :-)

  • Im scared my handle bars are going to fall off my bicycle when i ride home, they are making really weird clicking noises. and i know nothing about bike. Ouch!
