1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    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.

    Cheers,

    It verges on the ostentatious, but I like.

    It's like both elements are competing for my eye.

    The top part is too busy and eye-grabbing, which I do not like.

    I think when you see the tourbillon in motion you wont have that problem.

    Minerva's 150th anniversary watch. I've always dug the complexity of tourbillon movements... I'm especially a big fan of the jump hour complication. I've seen much better executed tourbillon designs, but I still like it.

    I am terribly sorry, I am glad you like it.
    To me it looks very sinister.
    I got chills.

    It's a bit too "LOOK AT ME I'M A TOURBILLON" for me, but whatever floats your boat.

    This and any other watch with the tourbillon on show remind me of those Japanese-make cars with neon-lit undersides and transparent engine covers - i.e. showy.

    It sort of reminds me of the new Lange Zeitwerk, although that is not a tourbillion of course. Not sure if I like that or not. On the one hand the level of craftsmanship is beyond question, but it is a fairly dramatic departure for Lange.

    Sorry, not at all. Just another gross unbalanced 'Look, I'm a Tourbillon and expensive' design. Just my 2 cents though...
