    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.

    thanks TC! most everyone hates the camo del toros. :hide:

    this is the first panerai I've owned with the tuxedo dial....on the wrist it pretty much just looks black until the light catches it. Pretty fun piece!

    what are the forum's views on richard mille and urwerk.

    just came across these brands now and they seem to have become very popular.

    views?

    very cool and quite intricate pieces for sure....for me personally, id never buy one. way too eccentric for my tastes. id pick a RM over an urwerk, but i wouldn't pay for one. too many things id pick over em.

    Love 'em. I recently ordered DTs in a couple different colors and unfortunately they just don't work with my build--wayyyy dainty on me. LOL

    this.

    they make a lot of mechanical marvels, but the aesthetics do not appeal to me in the least for the vast majority of their models.

    Dammit you're making me want to give it another try. My wife saw me wearing the burgundy ones in the house and laughed her ass off so I sent them all back. Sorry for the OT, it seems like we have similar taste--do you have any suggestions for a more substantial/masculine casual slip on, like for denim/chinos with a hoodie?

    Derek can get exotic with his Pannys, since he's owned one of each already :slayer:



    Re: Urwerk and the like, I am personally not that attracted to those type of watches.

    I'm glad they are out there, and I do think the industry needs brands like that-- the innovative people to push the envelope with designs and materials, etc...but for where I am as a watch appreciator right now, they're just not for me.

    And that's not meant to be a 'dis' at all.

    The Richard Mille stuff where he has Rafa wearing one of his pieces (a tourby?) during a grand slam tournament ... really impressive as a technical achievement.

    But I'm just not playing at that level, tennis or otherwise LOL.
