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.

    Cheers,

    Some owners have had the links brushed; this one is on a Sub bracelet, not my pic.

    Hype is dying down but seems like some locations are still moving them quick enough that they are more resistant to giving discounts on them.

    The ADs in my area aren't moving though.

    It's beautiful watch and don't think it's too blingy, I can see where people might feel that way because of the polished center links but I guess I am used to it?


    I'd take anything a sales associate says with a grain of salt though, they'd say anything to make a sale.

    She makes bespoke leather goods. You could probably request a box with a motor?

    You should order up a gaussmeter and take some measurements of various items. :D

    Re luxury winders try Smythson or Linley, although range is limited. The Smythson ones look nice IRL and every year they are in the sale. Asprey used to do one too, and can do bespoke.

    I love this BLNR love going on! Had it for a little over a year and on my wrist for 10 months. The micro-scratches on the polished links used to bother me...now I see them as character. Plus would polished links stop you from buying a Daytona?

    @Sweden

    You will find plenty of fans of the various Pilots, especially the XV/XVI. The opinion on IWC as a brand is more varied - some of the royalty here dislike their mass-market push over the last few years, and find the resultant price hike unjustified.

    Personally, I lust after a Portuguese Chronograph - not the latest one, the one with the awkward case shape. It is not loved universally by any means, but there are a couple of owners here, and many more not-so-secret admirers like me.

    But most of all, it's OK to like whatever you like. This is a friendly place, with any fanboyishness expressed and understood, usually, with some self-awareness and humour.

    Now get your pics out. :)
