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.

    Congrats on the big day. Wishing you many years of happiness.

    I really like that GP. It's almost unsettling with its simple perfection.

    Prost and congrats!

    :cheers:


    Thanks, dudes! It's a rainy Saturday in Norway, and I figured it deserved some non-phone-camera photos after having it for nearly a year.

    Took some shots of a few other favourite chronos while I was at it...

    Fantastic. Thanks for sharing. I'm sad that that line has been discontinued. It has so much character and class.

    Thanks bud! I'm digging your PO by the way, is that the 2500?

    Yes thanks; well spotted! I tried on both the 2500 and 8500, and felt that the 8500 was too thick for my wrist and felt a little more top heavy than I really liked.

    I had hoped to find the time for a long unboxing with a heap of high quality pics, but I never actually manage to get the pictures taken. So: here is my AP ROC in rose gold :satisfied:

    Today was dark and rainy, but this golden sun on my wrist cheered me up considerably. I had a new rubber strap from AP installed today, the same found on the City of Sails edition. The brown leather strap was ok, but a shorter rubber strap made it much more comfortable. The butterlly clasp is totally centered now, makes all the difference.

    Sorry for the dreary cellphone pic, I promise to return with better photography :D

    (But even in the rain, I'm sure you can all see the insane levels of frivolous awesomeness a rose gold Royal Oak chrono constitutes :teach:)

    Met up for drinks with one of my investment partners. I was wearing my Big Pilot, and he showed up wearing this, so we swapped for a bit. Definitely not something I thought I would like. It was the first Patek I have ever had on my wrist--a really magical experience. The weight of the platinum is nice, makes it feel very substantial for a modestly sized piece.

    A slippery slope you're treading there, brother. :)
