      I have not received the watch yet, and was hoping to give it to my wife before our trip to Hawaii. How do I check the status of my shipment?

      Thanks for the congratulations you guys!

      Bethany, we hear you loud and clear and will be doing all we can to meet our stretch goal plans!

      Krystal, it did the trick and we can't thank you enough for helping out. Seriously, we've actually traded stories here in the office about waking up from saying 'thank you' in our sleep repeatedly and with increasing volume. You - and EVERYONE who's been along for this aquatic rodeo - have been amazing.

    7. The Abingdon Co. Creator on December 13, 2014

      Margaret, you're being looked at as a recruit as well! :D

    8. The Abingdon Co. Creator on December 13, 2014

      Bethany, our marketing consultant wants to know if you'd be interested in:
      1) Standing around in jewelry stores pretending to browse
      2) Starting conversations with other browsers
      3) Showing off your watch and telling them about it
      You're amazing!

      @Fandrafter: We saw, and we loved it, and we're learning how to play fantasy football just so we can use your app as soon as this things done! :D

    10. The Abingdon Co. Creator on December 13, 2014

      Marcie, we're glad to have ALL of the amazing support you've been giving us. Hearing about Jackie, knowing you're helping with Marina... it's just wonderful :)

      Couldn't agree more with Bethany Miller's comment below! I am also a Jackie owner and can't wait for my Amelia! This is such an elegant timepiece - it is my most prized possession and symbolizes so many things in my life. Terrific conversation piece as well. I see the Marina in the same light! Imagine: A beautiful, sporty, tough-as-nails dive watch created by a boutique company! Let's support this!

      Love my Jackie and can't wait to own a Marina. This is such a great project and I hope you far exceed your goals. Anyone who's considered buying a watch for highly active people- this is the one. It's the perfect size. I've worn the Jackie flying for nearly 5 years and this thing is still in perfect condition despite my best attempts at being clumsy, exposing it to extreme weather conditions, wearing it on my flying arm, and near constant wear. I have people asking me where they can get one all the time. It's a conversation starter and beautiful timepiece. I know the Marina will be just as bold. Can't wait!

      I am a PROUD parent of my Jackie Sea Plane Green watch - my most prized possession! I don't know how I will be able to choose whether to wear my Jackie or my Marina each day, but what a great choice to have to make! No doubt your campaign will be as successful as your amazing watches. Can't wait for Marina to join my family!

    19. The Abingdon Co. Creator on December 6, 2014

      We're glad to hear your enthusiasm Krystal. In fact, we're discussing making a $1,500 pledge level available where you can select one of each of our watches in any color rather than the 'all white' option we're offering now. Hopefully that'll give us the boost we need to help with.... the big announcement we're about to post as an update!

    20. The Abingdon Co. Creator on December 6, 2014

      Hey Pia, we can't wait either! All of us here are extremely gracious to have you as a backer. Thanks again!

    21. The Abingdon Co. Creator on December 6, 2014

      Lol Candice.... you're actually wrong, but in the best way possible! If you think your Amelia is tough, wait till you get your hands on Marina! She's built for tough environments and will survive 1,000+ dives!

      :D

    22. The Abingdon Co. Creator on December 6, 2014

      Greg, thanks for the comment...and today's interview! We'll be posting your and Juice's chat soon!

    23. The Abingdon Co. Creator on December 6, 2014

      Thanks Chase! We're about to announce something AMAZING that WILL help make this happen!

    24. The Abingdon Co. Creator on December 6, 2014

      Marc, they might've been designed with women in mind, but our Black or Red Marinas would still look sporty on your wrist!

      I am a proud owner of the Amelia in Cloud White and I cannot wait for my next great watch from Abingdon! This is a great professional company and I am sure that together we will make Marina come true!

      I currently own an Amelia from the Abingdon Co. It is a tough & amazing watch. I know this dive watch will be the same! I rooting for this kickstarter and the company!

      I've seen their success in Aviation and love the fact Abingdon and her team are bringing their expertise to the dive industry. Female divers are just as passionate as female aviators....if not more so. I have no doubt these underwater adventurers will be impressed with Marina's unique combination of form, function and fashion. Yeah, I'm a dude, but I've been in the dive industry for 18+ years and definitely see the evolution of a great brand....keep up the good work!

    29. Chase DeLuca on December 6, 2014

      Ra Ra Ra! Go Abingdon Co! The watches look beautiful, and are always of the utmost quality. Can't wait to see this watch become reality!

    30. Marc Ausman on December 6, 2014

      Anyone who knows Abingdon and her aviation watches knows these are going to rock!
      I'm a pilot and a diver, but not a female. Otherwise I'd definitely order one! Love that blue!

    31. The Abingdon Co. Creator on December 3, 2014

      HaHa, Thank you Jeff!

    32. The Abingdon Co. Creator on December 3, 2014

      Shelley, Marina hasn't come true yet, but if we find more backers like you and Dean in the next 22 days, she'll be our fairy tale story come to life! I'm certain I've said it plenty of times, but it can never be enough: Thank you again for everything you've done to help create Marina!

      Hey New York Watch Company! First, thank you guys for backing AND commenting. That's really awesome. We read your watchuseek post and welcome you to message us directly if you have any questions about how our campaign is going. Thank you for your support, and keep us appraised of what your team gets up to!

    34. The Abingdon Co. Creator on December 2, 2014

      Terry - That blue you're thinking about is going to be fully luminous! That means come next June, the entire dial will glow as brightly as you will be when your Marina shipment arrives :)

    35. The Abingdon Co. Creator on December 2, 2014

      Kevin, you're a Kickstarter rockstar. We'll happily support any Lightbulb Mouth House Band Live Album Kickstarter when you guys launch one!

    36. The Abingdon Co. Creator on December 2, 2014

      Fan Drafter - Our campaign manager for this project has asked I pass along the message that he wishes he'd seen your project last year. Apparently he's a fan of 'The League' and your app seems like a great way for a know-nothing to get into FF!

      On the more important note, you have gratitude from all of us on the Abingdon Team for your pledge and your support across the web! Thank you!

      -Abingdon

    37. The Abingdon Co. Creator on December 2, 2014

      George, you're more than a trooper - you're the ideal advocate! I wish I had 200 more supporters like you! Thank you so much!

      Shantis - All of us appreciate that you know how hard we've worked in the past, and that you can tell how hard we're working to bring Marina to life now!

      The excitement for this campaign shown by you and others like you has been extremely helpful during the extra long days we've all been pulling. It lets us know we're on the right track and motivates us to put in the extra hours!

      I've been waiting to get one of your gorgeous aviation watches until I get my pilot's license… but I'm already SCUBA certified! And these are so, so, so stunning. Excited to see these coming true!

      Abingdon has been making ladies' aviation watches for a few years, and I'm happy to see that she has her sights on making ladies' dive watches as well. Based on the company's experience and reputation with their aviation watches, I know these dive watches will be top-notch quality and worth every penny. If you know a woman adventurer who would appreciate a watch designed by a fellow woman adventurer, please back this campaign like I did!

    48. Shantis on November 25, 2014

      You and the team have worked very hard on bringing the aviation watches to market, I am thrilled to see this new project for a dive watch!

    49. Lin Caywood on November 22, 2014

      Great Job with providing yet another stunningly beautiful AND functional women's watch. You are incredibly creative. Best of luck with your campaign!
