    Lastly, with the watch being constructed in homage to the pan am why wasn't Panama GMT considered as a viable name? Had to ask :)

    When the PanAm GMT project was in it's earlier stages, the folks who were interested voted on the name. Key West won. There were quite a few names suggested, not sure if Panama was one of the candidates. Not sure if there was any tie in with Panama, except possibly it was one of the countries served by PanAm. PanAm is a contraction of Pan American Airlines. The overwhelming choice for a name was PanAm, but that name is copyrighted and still in use, not by and airline,That symbol is now the property of Pan Am Brands, a small division of a regional railway company that owns the storied Pan American World Airways name.Wisely, Bill had no desire to get into a copyright battle over a name, so PanAm was eliminated as a choice.

    I guess that means these watches must really be good. This will be my first MKII.

    Re: Project GMT: Design thread

    WOW, there hasn't' been any activity on this thread in 23 days, must be a record!!! Seriously, there sure hasn't been much going on with the "Key West" in a while.I would have thought that there would have been some new updates regarding the "Key West", but apparently not. Time passes fast when you are having fun, but it passes really slow when you are waiting!!
