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.

    speaking of the Sinn 656, I got one this year as a gift and didn't see it yet in this thread. it came with both the leather and the metal band, and wanted to see what other people's thoughts were regarding which one to wear. Maybe when I get bored with the steel bracelet I'll switch it up. [​IMG]

    how much do you want to spend?

    Right now I would consider something under $100. There isn't really any reason for me to have an expensive watch, not right now anyways.

    For less than $100, choices are very slim. Check out Seiko 5, those will probably be the best bang for your buck. Other than that, just get some basic Timex and get an Easy Reader.

    I think the sinn looks best on the bracelet or a nato.

    How are you liking this. Im thinking I'll either pick up the sinn 556 or this in a few months. For a while there I was going to go with the sinn 656, but something about the dial was throwing me off.

    Like it just fine...had a budget so this was best available for me. Will add a Sinn later this year and call it a day, unless of course I become obsessed with watches which is a possibility.

    i absolutely love the 3714 but have always held off buying because i feel it doesnt quite go with the kind of stuff i wear at the moment- jeans/moto leathers etc. does it really work with streetwear?

    Depends what type of streetwear really. A simple knit & leather jacket with dark jeans and boots and I think it works. Same with simple trousers and blazer, it can work. Workwear and Goth Ninja... probably not.
