    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 guess there's something to be said for not having to send a watch all the way to Japan for service, or just if you want to have a scuff polished out properly. [​IMG]

    And then there's the hideous font jumble.

    But I do hanker after the Ananta Spring Drive Moonphase.

    This may supress the hankering somewhat. Posted elsewhere a few minutes ago:

    "Just received [polishing] pricing from Seiko UK, £380 for the work plus £72 postage (prices arent firm and will vary with exchange rate)."

    Mind you, the Spring Drive polishing quote was for a GS model instead of an Ananta, but I wouldn't be surprised if that Moonphase costs even more simply due to its enormous bulk.

    High-maintenance quartz, indeed. :lookaround:

    Speaking of Nomos, they just landed on Massdrop if anyone's interested. Club model. gorgeous watch. I prefer the lugs on it over their other offerings.. If you wanted a Nomos Club at a bit of a discount..

    You can get the Club slightly cheaper from a "reliable" grey dealer on Chrono24. I assume with shipping and such it about evens out. Good price though, however they don't specify how much it is per model. I doubt you'll be able to get the Datum for instance for that price. If so that's an excellent deal. Had they a Dunkel 36 I'd consider it.

    EDIT: Looks like you get to see the prices in your cart.

    Speaking of deals, you might want to check out Man of the World if you're a vintage fan. They have an extra 35% off right now, and that's on top of "sale" prices in some instances. Not sure if they're a "deal" with that sort of pricing, but I'm guessing some are. NOTE, they pull some of their inventory from the site, but if you search by brand name using the search function you should still be able to pull that inventory up.

    I have more or less decided that the SBGR061 will be the perfect watch for me when I reach 50. When trivialities like lume and water resistance were nececcitiesof the past.

    I am a huge fan,I think Grand Seiko is hugely underrated don't buy it if you want instant brand recognition but if you want a watch with excellent in house movement, accuracy and impeccable finishing do buy one I don't think you will regret it.

    Fantastic. I'd take that over an equivalent JLC any day of the week.

    Noob question. How do we post pics? Do we embed from a image hosting site? Or do we just insert attachments?

    I would love to contribute in this thread!

    You can post your own pics, or you can post pics from a web address (such as internet hosting, Google pics or really any image with an image-related address).

    When you want to post a pic in your post, click on the icon up above the box that you're typing in that looks like two small mountains with a sun (or moon) above it. It's up and to the right, next to the icon that looks like a strip of old-fashioned film (that's the icon that you use for linking to Youtube and other video).

    If you want to upload from your computer/phone, then you can browse to your images folder and choose the image. If you want to link to an online pic, you can insert the address, too. Then, just click post and it will appear in your post.

    Holding my breath until they release the blue-faced Lamda in stainless. White gold is a bit pricey for us normal mortals.

    No idea if it's coming in steel. Wishful thinking at this point!
