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.

    I have spent the last fifteen years wearing a Tag 4000 series stainless face / stainless body watch that I like, but now consider a sports-watch. I would like something more elegant for work. My first impulse is vintage Rolex, but I really don't feel like I know exactly what I want yet and don't want to spend vintage-Rolex-money on something that I may not love. In the meantime, I would like something with no gold, with a leather band, with as little ornamentation as possible without being military, and yet, elegant. Vintage Omega? Longines? Mickey Mouse? Any wisdom appreciated.

    I would suggest looking at Hamilton. They have a new Intra-matic that would likely fit your needs. Swiss made automatic movement and the full retail price is under $1,000. They also have a Thin-O-matic, Valiant, and Jazzmaster Viewmatic that may work.

    Check their website http://www.hamiltonwatch.com/ to see these models and see if there is a dealer nearby.

    You can also check Oris and Tissot. They may have some watches that fit your needs - and they are both reasonably priced.

    Both that Hamilton and the Christopher Ward are very appealing. I'm impressed that you gents of Styleforum picked up on the aesthetic I was describing so quickly.
