1. I'd like to announce that animated avatars are now available again. You'll have to reload, but they are once more possible.

    We've been doing a ton of work behind the scenes. The site load speed was already under 1/2 of what Huddler's was, on average, and we installed cloudflare, which means that the site should be even faster. A ton more will go on in the weeks and months to come, and some things will be more visibile, and some less.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    Indeed. And a lot of his stuff is a lot less SFW than that.


    What was wrong with it?



    I believe this is what Pam calls 'Sploosh'.

    Quote:Love the 1931 Tribute with that jacket and tan strap with white stitching! Just a fantastic combinations! My only issue is with the "B" shaped monogram. I can't tell if its just the photo, but in the photo at the top the indentation for the B creates kind of an uneven B (maybe thats intentional, maybe its because its part of working with an exotic skin). Until I read that it was sort of a monogram that you requested, I thought it was kind of a sloppy stitching job copying a Casa strap. Now I know its not. Overall love the watch with that strap, but I think it would look even nicer if it did not have the "monogram." Still beautiful combinations.

    Tack, but it looks like it's EU only. :confused:

    Also, the only one I saw that might fit the bill had a better yellow but still a really dark blue.

    I would worry about service - if any of them actually told the time!

    Neither one of them has hands - it is just a movement. The second one doesn't even show off the movement - it has a fully opaque case.

    I mean, just because it doesn't show time, does not mean that the tourby won't need servicing I think! I guess time does become less important though haha.

    I know, from personal experience, that he has shipped international before.

    That said, try this, which is a little different, but the right colours - http://www.ukwatchstrap.co.uk/nato-watch-strap-blue-yellow-FL29.html


    Ugh, an (expensive) exercise in pointlessness.

    Been a lot of love here recently for the Speedy, so I thought I would add a little of my own:

    Speedy on black leather is so good.

    I just sent my Oris worldtimer to be fixed bc the quickset date is not working. I miss it and I'm in Hong Kong so I'm surrounded by watches. I am in love with the jlc master geographic. I've never spent that much on a watch... And I'm a little reluctant to pull the trigger. Anyone an owner that would care to sway me one way or the other?

    Never owned the Master Geo... but there is not much better than JLC for the price. If you want a world timer, and do not want to spend as much money... take a gander at the Nomos Weltzeit (not actually a world timer, but then I am not sure that Oris is a true world timer as well?). I also think that Montblanc has a GMT world timer or two.

    Love the Master Control Series generally, but do not like the alternate crown at 10 o clock OR the lack of a full city ring on the Master Geographic. Personally, I am waiting for a redesign of the Master World Geographic.

    It is now discontinued, and its easy to see why (its hideous)--however, I would love to see them clean the hell out of it in a re-issue

    Alternatively, check out the Frederique Constant World Timer, or the NOMOS Zurich Weltzeit which are more affordable and available now.
