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'd like to see what you guys are working with in this department, so post pics of your watch! Whether it be a timex to rolex, no requirements here. I think a watch is a must in someones arsenal!

    Here's mine, I would really like to get a blue faced version of my Omega Seamaster, I got this in 2008 still looks amazing, very well built. I was gonna re enlist so I bought it as a present for me, re-enlistment bonus at the time as 80k...I ended up not re-enlisting and kept it, but sold the Nikon D80 I used to take these pictures haha

    Here it is next to my Nixon

    ahh crap, but I figured since we don't have one in the streetwear & denim forum..you know...

    Then don't mind me.[​IMG]

    But it will be hard to entice the watch enthusiasts to post here. That one has been quite successful

    that's true, well it was worth a try. I searched the S/D forum for any watch thread like the one in Mens Clothing but there were not here. I rarely hop over to the Mens Style forum....don't know why.

    I love watches and always have at least a small collection of them, but I believe the reason a watch thread only exists in MC is because most SW&D dont care for watches or even wear them at all, SW&D is mostly younger guys used to reading time off a cellphone or whatever, but maybe I'm wrong, idk.

    Paging both BB1 and gdl203; I think this could be a decent thread, if only for the fact that there exists lines between watch aesthetics (MC watches, BB1?) and the clothes that you wear with them. (what kind of watches do goth ninjas wear?) I wear one of these (bought when I thought I was gonna wear some pseudo military aesthetic all the time [​IMG]) It has been a good watch to wear everyday. I plan to buy some more watches later, but I plan to settle on one or two good dress watches, another daily sports watch, and then another military officer-esque watch. [​IMG]

    I really like this watch, and owned it (on a strap) for several years before selling it for something dressier (I wasn't a huge SW&D guy at the time).

    One thing I did with the watch that really gave it a different look was putting it on a NATO strap. The one I used was similar to this one...I liked the look and it is a great way of getting the feel of a different watch for $20.

    I actually plan to have it on an olive nylon strap sometime soon, maybe for Spring. I am just waiting to acquire a new watch before I start changing the aesthetic of the Sinn.

    No way I post after you shut the thread down. And that is not even half of your collection. [​IMG]

    i am going to get a GMT-II this year, though not a new one (don't like the green) and it will have a black bezel.

    1968 Rolex Oyster. My dad escaped the Vietnam War, Pol Pot's Cambodia, and the Iranian Revolution (in that order) with this on. He gave it to me for my 30th birthday.
