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.

    I've heard Lange makes an okay watch.

    And since we're doing comparables, I would prefer a 99.1 to a Stowa MO (and maybe even an 1815 over a MO if you twisted my arm).

    I wouldn't want to twist your arm. Maybe just send some subliminal messages "1815, 1815....1815."

    Family resemblance or not, I'd choose what I prefer. If I limited myself to the originators of a certain look, and ignore anything inspired by the original, I wouldn't be very happy. I prefer the Lange 1 to the pano, I prefer the panomaticlunar to the Lange 1 moonphase, as I see the dial as an aesthetic improvement. You value the originator factor more than I do, and likely prefer the overall look of the Lange anyway as well. Different strokes.

    If the post was about the recent brouhaha about Miss Teen Delaware, well, I will neither admit nor deny that I may have seen her in action.
    Would that I had the means to acquire all the stuff I want for friends I appreciate.....[​IMG]

    This one has been getting decent wrist time. No safe queen here. New York summers are going to wear these leather straps out, what with my sweaty wrists.

    You can blame your sweaty wrists, but it's more likely because that Patek is so HAWT.

    Yes, I do place value on creativity and originality. Beyond that I also find the Lange 1 and Lange 1 Moonphase far more attractive than any GO Pano design. I don't own a Lange or a GO, but I recognize GO makes a good quality watch and its significantly less expensive. However a GO would never fulfill my desire to have a Lange 1, so for me it would be pointless to purchase a GO. To each his own.
    Love that 3970!!!! Hot, humid weather? Preserve the strap by giving the Daytona & Explorer more wrist time .

    Now, I might get this post directly into the WAT [​IMG]. Operating knowledge of blogs and forums is NOT hardwired at birth [​IMG] o

    So, here's an ancient Baume et Mercier Geneve with a Bidynator movement. Shown with, I believe, the original crocodile strap of which B&M wants $300 new. AYKM ? Anyway, just look at that face !! Sweet for about 60 years old ?

    The girl has got some serious... talent. I am glad someone caught that :).

    And that Patek is gorgeous. Tough choice between it and Miss Teen Delaware.
