    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.

    Hah hah hah!

    One last pic to share from my vacation in the Philippines. It is common to see signs over there like this, requiring you to deposit your firearms before entering various establishments.

    But if I comply with this, will I be giving up my constitutional right to bare arms?

    Hah hah hah!

    Yes, I am wearing my "island style" attire of shirt, shorts and slippers. And my Patek Nautilus. Probably not SF approved but hey, it was warm. Cozy warm. No snow. Unlike, uhm, New York right now. Ugh.

    Frilly, are you from the Philippines or are you just vacationing? Have you been watch shopping?

    I'm there fairly often for business and I went watch shopping at Shangri-la....prices are decent, not great, but the nice part was that they were offering discount + 6 mos with no interest, at an AD.

    I'm not a resident so I couldn't take advantage :( iirc they had a few Pateks

    He was there campaigning prior to a national referendum on whether to rename the country "The Frillipinnes", in his honour. Rumour has it that the original plan to call the country "The Patek Philippines" fell through after the sponsoring company fell short of the expected price in the naming rights negotiation. Frilly, having not bought any watches for a year, was liquid enough to meet the requirement.

    Looking awesome there, Frillster, and careful with those big guns! Your comment about the Philippines being rich/poor reminded me of a conversation we had a long time ago on here when I think I was posing that same point: that a big poor market might still have more rich people than a small rich market. Anyway, tell us how it looks when they make you king. :)

    (Also worth noting that poor countries often have the most conspicuous and entrenched super-rich (kleptocrat?) class--that's how the rest of the populace stays so poor.)

    Just vacationing - wasn't shopping for any watch in particular, but I always enjoy checking out shops and what might be for sale.

    Just stopping by to brag about my incoming ... secret :D A watch that has featured on this thread a few times, nothing fancy, a decent everyday watch. A brand close to my heart. Somewhat uncommon, but not terribly expensive. Historically interesting, a true period piece. Descreet, but loud.

    Hoping to unbox at the end of the week :satisfied:

    Y'all are just a bunch of teases. And NS is the worst of the lot. Okay, he's just the most recent. :)
