hmm, the subject has been identified as the 'PATRIOT' - upon entry into the databse the Watch below was presented as the 'GRANT', which was immediately struck down.

Agree, Patriot. Though the only evidence for the Patriot is the crystal spec it still does not match the ad for the Grant.

Personally, I think this entry should be deleted due to the fact that it has incomplete pics and data that will never be updated since William/Scott was/is not the owner. We already have several examples of the Patriot in the db.

I agree w/ DarHin.  We have an example of the Patriot. The record is quite incomplete.  If there is not useful ancillary information in the thread, it would be a good move to delete from the database.

In reference to deletion from database.  There may be a little useful info in this thread, but it's not in the correct root ID format.  Perhaps the serial number for this case may be useful at some future point in time. 

There are many other watch records which could be entered in the new correct database format, however the owners are either not around or not responsive to making these edits when I politely PM them.  I've PM'ed several record owners, and most are not around or don't reply.  It's just a QA/QC issue, which can be addressed or ignored, depending on what the database is suppose to represent.

Will, unfortunately there is no evidence of the serial #, ie a clear pic of the back, so it is just hearsay at this point.

I have to agree with you on this one.  It would be best if there were docuementation in the form of pictures.  I don't think it's too much to ask, and w/ a picture, we know it's not a typo (or hearsay).  As long as it's "OK" to enter incomplete records, there will be incomplete records.  No data is better than bad data, IMO.
