    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.

    Love the Speedy! I didn't like it in the beginning because I lusted after the Planet Ocean in black. Since my fiance upgraded me from Planet Ocean dreams to GMT II dreams, I like the Speedy a lot more. This was only a few short months ago and now I am not a huge fan of the PO.

    Gents, the highs and lows of my day…

    Ordered a new croc strap for my Radiomir and it finally arrived yesterday. Off I popped today, squared the bill and off yer man went to swap it for me. In the meantime I took the opportunity to try on these beauties :inlove:

    Whilst obviously smitten yer man interrupts with profuse apologies- they had ordered the wrong size strap :censored:

    Was given bag full of brochures, books catalogues. Any good to anyone before I take the cellophane off?

    and encouraged to bring the Duchess next time so they can sell to us both :uhoh:

    New strap ordered so have to be patient, new PP dream sequence though! On the whole, today was a good day!:D

    Looks like you had fun, even if they didn't get in the correct size strap. Some great watches...although to me the Nautilus belongs on a bracelet. Without the bracelet I find its like getting 1/2 the design. The others are stunning.

    Bringing the Duchess...that sounds dangerous ! [​IMG]

    And very, very expensive!

    I had lots of fun, certainly opened my eyes. I understand the Naut to be different in many senses to the two others and I get that a bracelet would be better. I actually asked if the strap was black or grey. That said I was smitten by them all. On the wish list...

    Thanks Dino

    Congrats, suaviter....that's the hesalite/sapphire combo, right? Good call. And happy early birthday.



    Cleav, enjoy your consolation prizes! I love getting all the original catalogs, brochures, etc. from brands that I like.

    Just poured a c d rhone and about to open up. Bound to fuel either sweet dreams or bouts of insomnia trying to work out which body organ to sell, or two, or three!

    Thanks KT

    I read somewhere that he wore the Rolex to the base camp and then switched to a different brand to take to the peak.

    Yea, seems like forever since I heard that song!


    I think I was about 10 or 12 years old when that song was popular. My mom liked that song a lot.
