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,

    I'm sure I could find this myself but what was the thinking on switching from a single viewable date window to the three visible dates on the Mark XVII? Seems to ruin the watch for me.

    So that for the minute or so that the minute hand obstructs the date, you can still figure it out by reference to yesterday or tomorrow's date. A solution in search of a problem, IMO.

    Is that why they do that? I'm not a fan of those types of date display.

    @Keith T, just home from a very long day and cheered by your IWC, thanks.

    Looking forward to tomorrow as taking the Duchess to Birmingham (UK) as she wants another pair of CJs, so I'm doubling up with some window (!) shopping with that old IWC itch :uhoh:

    Thanks! Ehhh it's so far off (at least 12 months) that I'd rather not get the juices flowing too much. I do have 2 very specific pieces in mind which I could only justify following a very successful 2014. :)

    A nice package arrived today. I have already lost the light, so I'll try for some decent pics tomorrow.

    ^^^ I know - I generally feel the same - but I want to try to do this piece some kind of justice and I can already tell it's going to be tricky to capture.

    RogerP, you big tease.

    Good is not always the enemy of great.

    Don't make me embed another YouTube video of that crappy Carly Simon song.

    This was a post from 6 hours and 25 minutes ago and already I have 60+ posts to catch up on. Whoa! Congratulations, TC! Being a good kind of busy is always great. Looking forward to what you'll be sharing with your TWAT brethren in terms of new timepieces at some point soon, whether it be in the next 12 months...

    ... or sooner!
