I successfully checked out 9 items at noon and received the shipping notification at 7 pm EST.
How are you liking the Nomos Ahoi? Do you find that it works as a true sport watch that can handle rugged activities or do you consider it more of a casual style watch? I've been thinking of getting one for a beater and would love to hear your opinions and experience with it.
I read it for the articles, of course. They actually ran a very nice special a few months back for their e-version. $10 for a year's subscription.
I'm a big fan of Moser watches, but have always hesitated on acquiring one due to the past financial instability of the company. I remember reading somewhere that it had to be rescued in the past, not sure what its present situation is.

Among other high-end manufacturers, VC uses the same movement while Patek has their own in-house movement at twice the price. I had a chance to handle the Nautilus Chrono at the same event and while it is very nice, I didn't see the...
I attended Watchuwant's watch show last night and had a chance to try on several pieces from their diverse preowned collection. The FP Journe Centigraphe was extremely impressive technically. It apparently can measure 1/100th of a second! This limited edition AP Chrono was surprisingly light, with the case made from titanium. The hands are very interestingly shaped. I also adored the strap, especially the cross-stitching pattern. I can see myself wearing it casually or...

The agency 5% can only be to the traditional tsp. I specified my own contributions to be to the Roth tsp, hence 50/50 split. You can further specify the allocation and % contribution amongst the different funds.
