1. Welcome to the new Styleforum!

    We are currently fine-tuning the forum for your browsing pleasure, so bear with any lingering dust as we work to make Styleforum even more awesome than it was. I'd like to keep you abreast of the improvements we've made over the past few days.
    @notification emails have been added, in response to user requests

    Attached images are now Full Size by default

    Users are now all allowed three (3) links in their signature files,

    SSL certification is now in place so you can all browse securely.

    The server has been reconfigured so that site speeds will improve.

    Notice: Right now the site is slow because we are fixing all the images from the past 4 months. Many of you noticed that these were missing, and we are fixing that problem now. Unfortunately, it is taking up a lot of resources and causing the site to be slow.

    Oh, and don’t forget to head over to the Styleforum Journal, because we’re giving away two pairs of Carmina shoes to celebrate our move!

    Please address any questions about using the new forum to support@styleforum.net

    Cheers,

    It is very tough to capture. Granted I didn't bother trying to set up the proper environment, but I did hit it with some quick editing to resolve some issues though I still wasn't please with the results. I've had mine for a few weeks now and love it. I don't have the leather case yet though, that was the price of grabbing it early ;)

    Which of the two dials did you go with?

    Nice, I did as well. My wife got the cream with the blued hands and logo. I really, really like the watch, both versions. It may be my favorite purchase of 2013, and I made a lot of purchases in 2013. Wear it in good health my friend. [​IMG]

    Okay, I hear the drums, the natives are restless - best I could do below. I will say this dial is just gorgeous and looks about 5 different shades of red depending on the light.

    Gentlemen,
    I have been growing tired of the Rolex brand recently. I feel exposed, as the likes of an ecdysiast.
    Shall I opt for a Panerai?
    Appreciatively yours,

    See Roger, that wasn't so hard, was it? Better than most of what I try to pass off as photography.

    I don't think I like the color red enough personally to go that route for a watch, but I must say that's one heck of a dial....definitely can see where it would give you a lot of different shades to enjoy.

    Neville,

    Your taste in timepieces appears to be superb, unlike your taste in automobiles. I enjoy my Rolex Oyster Perpetual Daytona, as seen in my picture. Panerai are very nice; I own one - a Luminor Submersible. It's very nice. You should also consider a Patek Phillipe - they're very tasteful.

    Regards,
    Abraham

    You guys are a horrible bunch of enablers.

    Have to go with my heart and get a MUT Moon.

    Steel or rose gold? I've only seen the rose gold in person, and while it is certainly immensely beautiful I can't help but think that the steel would be less ostentatious and more versatile, and just as beautiful in a slightly different way. Of course, since now we're talking about getting a watch for the heart and for the ages, cost-efficiency is a non-factor.

    The MUT Moon is fairly dressy regardless of material. Get which one you prefer as it's not a "versatile" watch to begin with IMO (thats not a negative). The dial is gorgeous, good luck in your purchase.

    SF Tourneau = awful still. It's almost like they don't want your money.

    In my opinion, Panerai is too bulky and way too gaudy, especially in settings that require a suit. What else do you have in mind?
