    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 should probably get a job first. And Mt Gox should un-freeze my bit coins.


    I think that can that be said for a lot of Pannys bought 10 years ago ;-)

    Lovely pic of the Z, KT. Certainly brightens my day!

    Cold and wet here and blowing a 100mph gale. Hatches battened!

    Lovely Zenith Keith. I could definitely use some warmer weather here too!!!

    I am so sick of snow this season!!! Woa, having to spend the night work to be sure you don't have to drive in during a blizzard, that really sucks!!!! I'm hoping we all get some nice warmer weather soon!

    When it snows here in Blighty I always plan to get snowed in, not out. RNG, I admire you hugely. Stay safe man. That beauty will serve you well

    so a young guy came in today to sell a watch. there were all kinds of red flags anyways, so i turned him away, but i wanted to see if i missed something.

    there was no box or papers (which by itself is not so uncommon), and he had what i believe was supposed to be am omega PO 42 mm 232.30.42.21.01.002

    should have looked like this:

    among the many red flags that went off, the main one was that this watch he had presented me had a solid case back. have any of you seen this model PO, black dial + orange bezel with a solid case back?

    Hey Stitchy, are you sure it was not the PO 2500? That did have a solid caseback.

    They had the orange bezeled PO 2500. It did not have applied indices.

    Thanks!

    Hmmmm, dont recall. But the dude was super sketchy. Would probably not have bought even if I could have been sure it was legit.

    That is, basically the PO I want to get except in titanium. Was it sketchy fake, or sketchy stolen goods?
