    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.

    I think the above is OK aesthetically. Personally, I do not like the roman numerals or the brown face with black strap, but I think it is ok.

    But more importantly, is this really your first watch? How old are you?

    Oops. I mean my first non-digital watch. Used to wear digital Casios and Timex few years back. It was a brown strap originally.

    You think that's hard to tell time? I used to have one of these.

    You got me beat! Might as well be an old school star trek mainframe with random blinking lights on it.

    I own a couple of watches similar to this. Picked them up on Tokyoflash a few years back. Get more comments on these watches than my expensive watches!

    I just ordered this bad boy from the LVMH F&F sale. Same face with a brown croc strap. Opinions?

    It just shipped from NJ so hopefully I'll have it tomorrow.

    Stunning!!!! With the discount you have certainly gotten a huge bang for your buck.

    Here's a link you might find useful in learning more about the wonderful El Primero movement.

    http://www.timezone.com/library/horo...72303874274794

    Walt Odets covers the calibre 410 which includes the moonphase, date, day and month function. The 400 only has the date function. It is also the same movement that Rolex modified for the Daytona up until they replaced it with their own in-house chrono movement.

    Judging by the box, you got a NOS from the mid 90s. Well done.

    Congratulations and wear it in good health

    LOL. Maybe I shouldn't post my others as these are two of my more subtle watches.

    This is my first expensive watch. I choosed between a Panerai PAM164 and this Bvlgari Diagono 44mm and at least my decision went to the Bvlgari one. I love that design! What's your opinion to it?

    Too much Bulgari branding on it ... IMO

    Really? I think the black lunette shows much more understatement than the silver ones, right?
    If you wear the watch it's hard to see that's a Bvlagari lunette because it depends of the light. My friend told me... But i appreciate your opinion, thanks for it.

    I shudder to think how much that costed. Anyways, you asked, I think the Panerai would have been 100x better, and I don't particularly like Panerai.
