    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Have you ever worn a watch on both wrists at the same time and if so, under what circumstances? Have you ever seen anyone wearing a watch on both wrists at the same time? Did you think it exuded sprezzatura or ritardato? [​IMG]

    Rather a strange post but you have not even answered your own question!

    Before you ask, no.

    This made me laugh.

    I admit that I do, but only at home. I have a couple of watches that don´t fit in my winder so I will come home and put on two watches that I need to wind on my wrists and go about my evening. What my wife thinks about this whole episode is a completely new post.

    only back when I was very young and the Swatch craze was in full tilt...even then it was mostly multiple watches only on the same arm.

    I love this. The crazy things we do for our clothes, watches, shoes.

    Poll should have been "have you ever watched porn with both wrists at the same time"

    A watch dealer I know in TO does this.

    I personally think it looks pretentious as shit.

    The watch would have to have a very long band to fit around both wrists.

    I think that Castro did this. Something about ease of getting to the watch during combat or some other crap like that. Wearing two watches is ridiculous. Wearing it on top of the sleeve is, of course, a mark of great taste, but two watches is ridiculous.

    Wouldn't it be easier to just wear a GMT or a digital?
