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,

    PG,

    Great watch, and great find! But imho those do not go well with your attire- you're correct with what you said in TZ- they're better with weekend wear.

    I'd get tennis elbow from wearing that fucker. Do most large watches like this have a smaller size available?

    - yeah, but you know I like to push the envelope.. [​IMG]

    - yes, but not the same.. IWC Mk 10 through to 13 or 14 now.. - or there are some other German makers who do smaller sizes..
    Wow....it takes a special man to sport that!
    - thank you..

    I like 70s Heuers! [​IMG] Here represented by Autavia 11630 (auto), Autavia 73663 (manual) and a manual flyback chrono used by F-104 Starfighter pilots in the Royal Norwegian Airforce. Vintage is the best, style and history!
