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.

    The porch? Dang, Mrs. Stitchy plays by some harsh rules. And heck, at least it is summer time. I am sure you could make the porch quite comfortable this time of year.

    sadly, the muggy bmore nights are miserable. porch would be no bueno. the reality is, she'll notice. then she'll be pissed. then she'll get over it.

    in the morrow, i hope to be able to make the (anti-climatic) reveal. just waiting on one more piece to fall in line.

    Me too, I bought it in Bahrain 1964 and it was £37... it is still with me, but the refurb has been quoted as £350, should I go for it ?

    I tried that once, got spotted immediately. The agreement now is that I can spend my money as I please, but be open about my purchases. I can live with that ...

    Have you tried both on the wrist? They wear quite differently, I find. Mostly due to the bracelets. I love the El Primero Daytonas, and sold my 15300 rather quickly ...

    Somewhat off-topic: got some new shoes from the Leffot sale in NYC last week - Gaziano & Girling Barclays in mole suede. Paired with Phineas Cole socks and 3970P today:

    Yes, I need to get that pant bottom (re)-hemmed...

    But, just had to share this: got myself a Nano Suede Protector from Tarrago and tested it on the shoes:


    How awesome is that? Hah hah!

    ^^ great looking shoes! ^^


    that is pretty much our agreement. with the addendum that the wife still retains the right to get mad at me for frivolously spending our money. :)

    ZOMG minute repeater with blue dial!

    There are surprisingly (relatively) affordable minute repeater pocket watches if you go vintage, 'no? Even PP.

    i once actually saw a no name MR pocket watch in an obscure shop, i forget where. was very affordable, and had a very pretty chime. but i was really young and flat broke at the time. i think it was before i even had any credit cards.

    Chronoswiss used to have a Quarter Repeater that was not so expensive. Had a nice look to it as well.

    I've had 3-4 over the years. A very nice, under the radar brand. In the current line, the Sirius handwound model is lovely. A great dress watch.

    lets get some pics, brother!

    i like a lot of their models, and i really like the success of their relatively new brand, as well as the story about how gerd lang trained michael kobold. good stuff going on there.
