Positive feedback from WatchUseek Omega Forum

.
On August 2, 2009, I posted an oblique Thread on the WatchUseek Omega Forum asking "Any current or previous 40th Anniversary James Bond LE owners" to contact me. These folks came to be among the lucky few to get advanced word on the James Bond Watch Registries.

When our work was formally announced in early October, feedback was strong and positive. Here's a sampling.
Here's to hoping your project turns out like you want it to. Good luck! [jbdan, Atlanta, Georgia, October 3, 2009]
I think it's a very worthwhile project ... and perhaps one day, 200 years from now, someone will be trying to track down those Bond watches! [Chev James, October 4, 2009]
I agree. Hope this project succeeds like it should.

I would go so far as to add that such a database forms another line of evidence, in case of a missing watch. How many of us travel with all documentary evidence of ownership? I would suppose that this online resource would at least prima facie be good evidence in case of a sticky situation.

I am not sure why anyone would look at such a thing with suspicion - Surely you are not planning some grand heist, Mr. Deaton

All the best with your project. [ddatta, Bangalore, India, October 7, 2009]

Thanks for all the kind words, guys! And, as always: Enjoy your watches (as those of us on these Blogs are in a more modest way enjoying them from afar).

Going forward, we'll not only update Twitter with LINKs to each of these Blogs, but also provide real-time information (where we're allowed to share it!) regarding research, negotiations, and anticipated announcements.

Thank you to those promoting this project!

Yesterday we made a soft announcement on this project and already there's been some great coverage.

In appreciation of these folks who are helping us get the word out (and helping bring aficianados together), a "Project Coverage" list has been added to this Page. These LINKs will take you to specific items, and are sorted by date of entry.

So if I miss anyone as we go along, anyone who should be added later will claim their rightful spot in the sequence.

Regarding the individual Registries

Resources listed on individual Registries are specific to each Registry. Remember: The real action is on each Blog listed in the right column of this page.

The criteria here is for a specific source that has provided specific information on at least one specific watch. Thus, a Forum may be mentioned if one of its participants provides information. Similarly, book publishers and sources of many other sorts are included as our way of saying thanks.

Initial reaction has been overwhelming!

Now, I'm back to adding Limiteds--
