International brotherhood of Speedmaster sites...
From the comments field:
The previous post made me think (assuming Fabio is from Italy) that there are many very serious watch collector in Europe and Japan, but most of them do not have an active web presence.
I've mused about this often. I personally feel the most intense Speedmaster collectors (and other brands to a lesser extent, except maybe for Rolex) in the world are probably the Japanese followed by the Italians, Germans and Dutch in close order. Perhaps me and my fellow Yank's follow them to round out the top 5, perhaps some other nationality squeezes by. I don't know.
It's a pity, because the online web community would be much more intereting and richer in information with their contribution.
I think Japanese participation with regards to website creation is solid. Japanese participation in watch forums is probably problematic because of language differences. Remember that not only is there a Language difference but an alphabet difference between peoples who use a roman alphabet and peoples who use a symbolic visual language (Thai, Korean, Japanese, Chinese, etc.).
