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.

    I know that not all of you will like this one. It isn't swiss nor auto but I still love old Seiko quartz watches. They are cheap, neat, reliable workhorses.

    Just left the AD after failing to kop a new piece. When I hinted at what discount I was expecting they first laughed like they thought I was joking, and then got offended when they realized I was serious. Guess I will be doing the whole wire transfer fedex routine. Oh well. :)

    It's something that has been on my wishlist for a long time, probably somewhat predictable but I will keep it a mystery for now. It's in the works and I will surely post pics when it arrives! I contacted the guy who sourced the AP and he assured me he could get it for me quickly at the price I want. Stay tuned!

    Just returned from a lovely NYE celebration at the club

    Thought I'd wear the first watch bought for me by the Duchess, goes with the Black tie I felt. its a RW approx 26 years old, nothing fancy, just sentimental value and for me suits the garb.

    HNY to you all

    Rubber straps make sense if you dive while wearing a watch on top of your suit.

    As you go deeper under water, your suit will compress. Thus, a watch or a compass that fit your forearm perfectly on the surface becomes loose. To solve this problem you over-tighten the strap on the surface so it feels normal at depth. You can certainly do it with a metal bracelet, but it is much easier with a rubber or a NATO-style strap. Also, things get banged up under water and replacing a strap is cheaper than replacing a bracelet. (For the equipment other than watches, bungee mounts are the best solution.)
