    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, understood. My question isn't about appearance but comfort related to the position of the strap. Is it more comfortable to have the end of the strap against the inside of the wrist or the buckle. Have attached two pics to illustrate. On the top one, the strap is outside; on the second one, the strap is inside. Based on your experience, which would be more comfortable for a day in the office?

    If it fits properly, it doesn't really matter.

    That deployant style is most popular on Tags. Tag also has one of the best designs when it comes to micro adjustments, you just slide it on any position on the leather.

    Hey guys, can you give career advice? How do you get to the point where you can afford AP, PP, VC, JLC, ALS, IWC etc. I am 24 years now. Very little savings , work all day. Thanks.

    Not sure how much you'll make, but I can give you the same advice I give my staff and colleagues regarding career development: always give added value to your clients -- but don't expect to be paid for it until your next job or assignment. The added-value work will always pay off, as it will separate you from the others doing the same job as you. People who give added-value always advance until they reach their potential, and they learn not to grumble about being underpaid in their current job, because they know that they'll be compensated for that work in their next one, where the added-value will be part of their core function.

    Best of luck ...

    That's your problem. Don't strive to get to the point where you can "afford" AP, PP, VC, JLC, ALS, IWC etc.
    Strive to be successful. All of other "spoils" will come IF that is what you feel makes you successful/etc.

    And in the mean time, there's the Seiko 5 Military. Which is totally cool.

    I think Dino has it right, in that this is a modular chronograph. If you look at the movement, it closely resembles that of the AP Offshore Chronos. There was a relatively recent post on Hodinkee that covered exactly what you are discussing. Among other high-end manufacturers, VC uses the same movement while Patek has their own in-house movement at twice the price. I had a chance to handle the Nautilus Chrono at the same event and while it is very nice, I didn't see the value proposition for paying twice as much just for the in-house movement. Personally for me, I actually thought the AP Chrono's dial, case and bracelet were better than that of the Nautilus Chrono. Blancpain and GO recently came out with new fly-back chronos for their sport watches that look promising but they are too new to the market to know for sure how they rate against the F. Piguet and the Nautilus Chrono.
