    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.

    After seeing some nice watch pics in other threads, I thought this forum deserved its very own watch p0rn thread.

    So here is a home to post your pictures of your watches (I think it's more interesting if we stick to our own watches rather than reposting stock photos or other people's scans)

    It is very difficult to concentrate on the Panerai with that fantastic-looking espresso staring me in the face. [​IMG] What I'm wearing today... Wittnauer / Longines from the 50's

    I hear you - sipping an espresso lungo outside on a sunny day is one of those simple pleasures... This was in Verona last year

    Nice watch btw - is it a bumper automatic?

    Thanks; it is a rotorwind movement by Longines.

    I'm going back to daydreaming about a sunny patio and crema-laden espresso...

    That's a fantastic looking watch, Hoff. I'd like to own a 1950s or 60s Longines in gold.
    Here's my modest contribution for now.

    You're making me get teary eyed. I lived in Siena for about half a year and was there for both Palio races. I spent many nights in that Piazza.

    I love Siena too. This pic was taken the day before the august Palio, a couple hours before the last dry run. Whatever people think about the ethics of this race, it is by far the most exciting "sport" event I've ever attended. The energy throughout town is incredible

    I was there in 2004 and it was that year during the second Palio that when a horse turned the sharp left corner (if you're standing in the middle facing the tower) clipped the edge, stumbled, got trampled and eventually died.

    You are right about the energy...especially as the parade ends and everyone is sitting there waiting for the horses to line and not knowing when they'll hear the thunderous BOOM from the mortar cannon.
