    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.

    My afternoon activity: a haircut in Chinatown. I save about $10 for going to Chinatown for a haircut, so by that math I will only need another 38,659 haircuts to save and pay retail for a Patek 5078P minute repeater. Boom!

    Swung by the Pop-Up Flea in Soho this weekend and met Ben and Stephen from Hodinkee at their booth. Great guys as I expected and bought a couple straps (patina'ed Italian calf and navy shell cordovan) and a waxed canvas watch roll. They had some great vintage watches on sale and I really enjoyed checking them out and learning more. Was also honored that my humble 15202 was included in Hodinkee's recap of wrist shots.

    Thanks buddy! I can't wait myself to see the happy faces of their new owners, and to see my watches worn in the wild (for some folks, literally).

    Thanks for your well wishes and kind words! It is my great honor to be a part of this community! :D

    The next few days and next week will be especially exciting as I expect the watches to reach me and the leather cases to be completed. The Red dial is looking very, very nice in the flesh. Perfect for Christmas and the New Year festivities!

    B - good news. Really looking forward to seeing the red dial version in particular.

    I will admit Queen Bee is an incredibly lovely woman. Not just that - I've watched her live and all that singing and dancing is pretty insane.

    Do you need the GMT functionality? The reason I ask is that watch has a lot going on with the dial. The Planet Ocean GMT is a little cleaner but is larger and takes on more of a Rolex feel which you said you were not fond of: http://www.omegawatches.com/collection/seamaster/planet-ocean-600-m/co-axial-gmt-435/23230442201001

    I'm sure others will chime in as I am stuck on what else to recommend without a little more information on what you like.

    Snowstorm today in NYC. So to prep adequately I first put on my Patek, wore my corduroy pants, and finished with my awesome reverse leather boots from Rider Boot Co by way of Leffot. Oh right I also put in a shirt, pea coat, scarf and fedora.
