    Pen OLD THREAD - Vote thread 10: The Name of the Watch

    VOTE CLOSED
    Results:
    Advancing from the group 1:


    1. Phantom
    2. Aurora
    3. Cockpit and A.C.W.



    Advancing from the group 2:


    1. Valkyrie
    2. Thor
    3. Blackstar and S.S.W.



    Advancing from the group 3:


    1. T.H.O.R. (Taktische Hand-Uhren für Observation und Reconnaissance)
    2. SR-71 Blackbird
    3. Meteor


    The purpose of this vote is to select the name for our watch.


    In the vote form you will be asked to select 3 names from each group that will make it to the semi final 9. After that, you will receive another vote form with those 9 names and we will be narrowing it down to 3. After that, we will discuss the names for a short period of time and then we will proceed with the final vote. If you don't know what each name means, you can read appropriate design thread again where you can find the story behind each name.

    Remember, this thread is NOT for the continued discussion of the crown design. Please use the appropriate Design Thread for such posts. This thread is strictly for comments concerning the vote itself – or for anyone experiencing problems with the voting process and needs to let us know.

    Online vote forms will be sent out to everyone over the next 24 hours (April 7th).
    This vote will run for SEVEN days (from 7th of April – 14th April), or less if all eligible votes are received before the end of the voting period (it would be a miracle). The vote results will be tabulated and posted in this thread upon its completion and in the project summary post of the FAQ thread.

    IMPORTANT! This vote is mandatory and WILL count against your participation count in the project.

    Here are the names:

    Re: Vote thread 10: The Name of the Watch

    Voted.

    We should consider the applicability of some of these names, which are already trademarked or in common use by others. For example, the term Skunk Works and the name Lockheed are both trademarked by Lockheed-Martin, and are still in use by Lockheed-Martin. Their web site Skunk Works® Legal Notice · Lockheed Martin states "these marks may not be used by others on their own goods and services without prior written approval by Lockheed Martin. Learn more about our licensing program."

    Similarly, Grumman is part of the name of Northrop Grumman, and Nighthawk is widely used by Citizen watches, so I believe either of those names should be eliminated.

    We need to make certain that the chosen name does not conflict with existing trademarks, especially where there is potential confusion with aeronautic or watch themes. We just want a good name for our project watch, but the last thing we need is to create a potential legal battle for Herr Steinhart.

    Re: Vote thread 10: The Name of the Watch

    Vote done. Thanks CM you are putting in a shift at the moment. Much appreciated as ever.

    This one was quite an easy one for me. I think the groups must have fallen well for me. There were three obvious choices in each group.

    On a separate note, I support Dave's thoughts above, I think he makes a good point.

    I'm not a lawyer, but I believe skunkworks and nighthawk wouldn't be a problem. Nighthawk is a bird and nobody can claim a name of a bird as their sole property. The noun skunkworks is considered a slang word for loose secret lab developing unorthodox projects, therefore this would probably also work out... However, you made a good point regarding those brand names, like Grumman...

    So please people choose wisely!

    You can trademark any common word - for example apple, windows ... If Citizen trademarked the word nighthawk, you can use it for a night vision scope, for example, but not for a watch.

    True story. The world is a mad place sometimes. If Taylor Swift can trademark 1989...!
