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,

    Well, were I in a position to, it would have to be the Breguet: the Daytona is awesome, but firstly I don't wear gold, and secondly it is more awesome in SS anyway. Also, the Breguet is special and different and...a Breguet. Which for some reason excites me. And either of them would be better value than the naked blonde woman, who will depreciate rapidly and is already missing her packaging (see "resale", above).

    Nothing is rising, believe me. But I still have 7 of 9....that was not bad.

    I get more excited about your shoes.

    Very nice. It reminds me a bit of the Flightmaster that came later (probably because of the chapter ring, and case shape. Thanks for sharing some photos.

    At $100k+ Patek and others should offer left-handed watches with the pushers on the other side.

    LOL.

    I've always fancied myself more of a gentleman-type thief, as my avatar would indicate....sneaking across rooftops along the Riviera, driving fancy convertibles, and shagging Grace Kelly.

    Smash and grab? Never.

    And speaking of avatars, I see stitchy is up to his old tricks again :D

    Looking good TC family!

    Pop quiz: what has a thumb, wears a Nautilus, and is en route to the airport to catch a flight before the game begins because he needs to work on Sunday evening?

    THIS guy.
