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,

    Would he consider any of the independents? Laurent Ferrier comes to mind

    I don't know anyone who has used their bespoke service. You would need to contact VC through your nearest AD or contact their boutiques in Geneva for pricing info.

    Here is a link on their website regarding custom pieces. http://ateliercabinotiers.vacheron-constantin.com/en2/atelier-cabinotiers-custom-watches

    At a lower price point I have had a custom watch made by Garrick, mine was their original watch the Shaftesbury but they now produce a higher spec watch the Portsmouth in conjunction with Andreas Strehler at £18,000.

    http://www.garrick.co.uk/the-portsmouth/

    It is not my style but they are good people to work with to produce something to your own design.

    Other makers outside the big Swiss who may be able to help include Voutilainen and Sarpaneva.

    Agree. As do:

    Kari Voutilainen - though think it'll be pretty over budget
    H. Moser - one of the more under appreciated companies IMO
    A. Favre
    Volker Vyskocil

    Thanks everyone - do Moser and JLC really do custom? I thought JLC does some minor dial changes to the Reverso, but nothing more

    Magnificent. It's one of those watches that doesn't immediately pop out at you, but the more and more you see it, you realize that it's something truly special.

    Watch paired with a Cucinelli

    I aspire to wear vicuna from Loro Piana and Patek Calatrava someday..

    Congratulations. A friend has this and it's a stunning watch in the flesh. Glows, somehow.

    Been in HK less than 24 hours and it seems as though quite literally everyone has a stainless Rolex (Subs being the most common). Literally, everyone from children to retail employees proudly sport a Sub or GMT. It also seems as though Tudor is pushing hard in Asia as their massive billboards are everywhere.

    I love Cucinelli's stuff but Loro Piana is better for the larger gentleman. Have been buying a lot recently. Not vicuna though!

    Indeed, it's akin to noting that everyone in the USA has a car. That's just how it is. :)
