    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.

    Agreed with Mimo, but more about watches than the shoes. There are a lot of watches posted on this thread that I wouldn't even want to wear if they were given to me no questions asked (obviously there are a lot I would gladly take the risk of being arrested over for stealing). But who cares, I'm not wearing it, and they enjoy it. If it calls to you, it calls to you and that's just part of this hobby/obsession.

    indeed. there was also another steel+dia dial ladies DJ, that fancy vintage explorer, and a pepsi dial, but they had already been packaged up to go so missed out on pics. :( what was so interesting to me about the first 3 i posted was that the person who came in with them was a lady, and she had 2 mens models and one ladies model. they were all pristine, and the sub, which based off of the serial # is from 2008 and had the original hang tags with a MSRP of 6k, was factory sealed. none of them looked they saw a day of wear. odd.
    a panny expert could tell right away. someone like @DerekS.
    i happen to prefer the classic RO, but i do like the safari very much. so does @DerekS.

    If I still had a bike, and if it were real alligator and not stamped leather....just maybe :)

    Watch this space. In the mean time, I am waiting excitedly for you to bow to the inevitable.

    I use to really admire that Safari until I tried one on a few months back. It is not nearly as magical on the wrist as I had imagined it. Like you said, a lot of other tempting pieces in the price range.

    Behold! LOL

    Cleav that combo is pretty fantastic! I'm kind of wishing I had gone the Radiomir route instead of my 112. Just dresses up so much more nicely.

    Lately I have had my eye on this:

    HAH HAH HAH! Awesome!

    I was thinking this might be more mimo's cup of tea (or, well, mine):

    But then, collecting shoes involves some costs as well. From Arnold Schwarzenegger's Facebook page yesterday:

    "Ever since I came to this country I collected cowboy boots. It is a hobby that requires a little work."


    ^^^ BOOOOOM!

    oh shit, i need a bigger winder too!

    do you guys put your manual winds in the winder also, just so they don't feel left out?

    Trust Frilly to up the ante! I've seen those up close actually, but perhaps fortunately, Corthays just aren't going to fit me right. Trouble is, when I get some more modest item, I'll be ashamed to show now...

    And what an eye you have my good man!

    Your 112 :nodding: looks good in the winder. I guess the Rad has a wee bit more flex in terms of dressing it up but hey too little time, too little money too much wrist candy going on!

    That you're looking at 513 Rad Oro Rosso? Stella Beaut! That was the watch strap that took my eye for the 183, you'll remember asking your advice at the time.

    I was looking at a Rad California earlier but need a different case colour so the Rosso :inlove:

    BetelG, thanks for the Paneristi love man!
