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.

    Let's get back to talking about some cheaper, but still good, watches.

    Have posted this several times before, but celebrating my 1-year anniversary of owning my Blue Spark. Still love it and wear it everyday!

    Why did they discontinue the Blue Spark?

    It's the best looking watch they've ever made.

    I was looking for a casual watch and found this one. Pretty happy with it for weekend usage.

    Beautiful indeed! Personally I'd choose a slightly less reddish strap, and opt for a rich, dark brown one; but maybe it's just because of my monitor and/or the camera settings...

    Thanks!

    That's actually an old picture where I had a cheap-o strap with faux cow leather grain. About half a year ago, I purchased an alligator leather strap and attached a deployant clasp. Just snapped a picture of how it looks now.

    Definitely want to get the face refinished because of all the hairline scratches :(

    The color seems to be a bit off; need more natural lighting. Anyway, here's another close-up of the strap.

    Perhaps, but the design is a direct derivative from Grand Seiko, while the Blue Spark is in its own class.

    The Japanese yen is at its lowest rate in years against the dollar. Finally pulled the trigger and picked up a "direct derivative" Seiko SARB065 Cocktail Time for less than $450 new. Beauty is beauty.

    Damn it, this is the poor man's watch thread. I can get a good car for those prices.
