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.

    From your pictures, I realize something that I have to say I don't love. With the new larger 41 mm case size, the Royal Oak chrono has a lot more empty dial space around the date and registers. Here is my 39 mm prior model for comparison:

    I guess that is what happens when the same movement is simply placed in a larger case. I have no problem with the larger case size, but the pictures show what happens when the same movement is used.

    I'm sure it is a beautiful watch as is my own RO but the overall layout suffers here IMO.

    Just for you, Stitchmeister. :)

    And just one more round of ogling to share today: they had one Lange. And it might even be fair to call it the Lange. And certainly, this is "back", baby...

    Yeah, it's becoming our annual spring destination. The Banyan Tree there is really special. Can't recommend it highly enough. Here's the view from our pool villa:

    My big chunky divers for Mimo [​IMG] Serious the chrono diver from JLC is nice and I actually like the color scheme. I think that monster comes in at 46 mm if I'm not mistaken which is too big even for my taste. That JLC Duo is something else. Hey now that Frills has popped his Sub cherry should we egg him onto a JLC? !! Dino I agree with you about all these so called special editions. After a while it becomes an obvious marketing scheme. However I will reaffirm that I do like the overall look off many of the Offshores. I think AP has put out a lot of quality options for their sports watches and i like the variety. I've held the Jumbo and the Volcano side by side and while many will think I'm crazy to compare them, I just felt like they were both great watches.

    It looks like a noncommittal owl. (Aaaand now reading further along I see Dino's already made that observation.) Random question for owners of white gold pieces -- how much do you really have to baby them? Further edit: I'm in London next week so of course I've been noodling around the usual Bond St. shops on Chrono24, when suddenly ... [​IMG]
