    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.

    As nice as the Arca's are, they don't have the most comfortable last for me.. A bit tight and narrow.

    But you did notice the bracelet, didn't you? They most definitely make one that fits your 15703. By the way, not my photo (obviously) or watch.

    Here's another one:

    You know, I always thought that I didn't like ROOs. And now ...

    This thread sucks!

    haha. Its a different design for sure. the standard RO is fantastic, but the ROOs are pretty loud and in your face...not a watch for everyone thats for sure. But i must say i love it. :)

    In recent years I've steered clear of slim/smaller dial watches. By small I mean 40mm lol.

    Mostly because I've bought Panerai's exclusively.

    I would love a 15400 and it could very well be a choice in the near future.

    Though I would probably move my 5001 Porto if going down that route.

    i was a HUGE Panerai guy for years....I started out with a 112 and went through probably a dozen of them easily. I had both a 217 and a 127 which are 47mm...it took some getting used to when i went to smaller watches. Ive worn a GMT IIc for a long time now...got used to the 40mm size and now im getting used to the AP size.

    Yup had the 127 myself but it only lasted 12 months.

    $20k into one was just nuts, even for a PAM nut like me.

    372 now :)

    love the 372! I got them just before they hit their peak around 25K. i was in at around 9K and sold around 11K. Had i held out just a few months longer, i woulve almost tripled my investment.

    I think I got in at 20 and sold at 21 [​IMG]

    With the 372 on the way, I got out before the potential destruction in value.

    Speaking of Panerai, if any of you guys wanna swing by Copenhagen and pick up my largely unworn PAM 177, drop me a PM.

    the huge price increases panerai had afforded me most of my watches :D I got in at the perfect time.

    how long have you had the 372? I could see myself pretty happy with that.
