Today: Part 2 of 3 on discovery of the very first James Bond movie watch, a Gruen Precision model worn by Sean Connery in Dr No, 1962.
… but the description is spot-on in terms of the way I approach my research and content presentation, and why there’s no need to spend any effort on the Internet forums where little evidence of intelligence or commitment to persuit of authenticity can be found.
Each of his proposed “Liberty Amendments” [re Radio talk show host Mark Levin’s new book, which I haven’t read and about which I take no position otherwise here] is laid out in a brief chapter that explains its importance, sources it to the writings of the Founding Fathers, and anticipates the more reasonable objections that would likely be raised. Little time is wasted on the unreasonable objections, for Levin does not intend to address an audience of the stupid, greedy, or hysterical. He also knows his statist adversaries are not interested in rationally discussing the death of the Leviathan they nourished for generations.

Those ads say it all: Their stolen content draws you in and supports their ability to sell ads to make them money.
And they really expect you’re gonna trust that sort?
Saw something on Google+ last week about an app to help school kids better credit research they source from the Internet.
Obviously a lot of websites, forums, and blogs that could only have gotten the content of their “definitive” James Bond watch lists from my original work could benefit from that technology.
Well— that, after a course in ethics, and Common Courtesy 101.
Meantime, as a gesture of good will, I’ve started updating my primary James Bond Watches website with “validation” references. So, next time you see someone lay claim to a list of James Bond watches, have them tell you where they got their information.
The Breitling for Bentley Motors T Speed chronograph features significantly as a James Bond watch in the new Jeffery Deaver novel, Carte Blanche.
But is this a bad thing?
