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,

    Man was I disappointed when I was first told that IWC stood for International Watch Company. I thought it was gonna be an abbr. of something cool in french, like JL's Jaeger Le Coultre. [​IMG]

    (was) a quite nice brand but most stuff is around 32-33mm w/o crown or smaller so kind of hard to wear considering todays standard..

    Anyone heard of the Favre-Leuba brand?

    Love that diver on the brown strap, and love the strap as well. My favorite of the three.

    Thank you. You're right. You don't need to spend big money to acquire nice things. I have to learn this.[​IMG]

    The Rolex I just posted desided to fail yesterday. The power reserve must be like 3 seconds or something because thats as long as it goes for before stopping. Ill bring it back to the jewler.
