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,

    Fok on behalf of the entire Styleforum team

    I would say the same of the U.S., Except for RGM. And I don't even think that he has a Tourbillon, and is that Chinese thing even authentic.

    That thing is hand-made by Kiu Tai Yu himself (which is why there are so few pieces made), and it is just as good as any of the watches made by the independent European watchmakers.

    I swear, I've logged in more times in the last week that I have in the last 6months.

    Good point. Two of the most celebrated, prestigious and expensive watchmakers in recent years aren't even Swiss: FP Journe of France and A Lange of Germany. The technical complexity, engineering precision and aesthetics far exceed comparable offerings from Patek, Breguet & Audemars, IMHO. Check them out: FP Journe and A Lange & Sohne
    Not to be contentious, but F.P.Journe is firmly ensconced in Geneva, Switzerland, where all of his watches are made. You'll see that on the very first page of his website.

    I am a marketer's nightmare and am not some curmudgeon; in fact, I am probably younger than you are.
    Curmudgeonry has nothing to do with age; I have been a curmudgeon since my teens. [​IMG]
