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,

    Fok on behalf of the entire Styleforum team

    ^ I realise that it's subjective and that others may disagree, but in the above wrist shot, at least, that watch just looks farcically large on your wrist.

    Well, I didn't buy it to necessarily keep it. The intention is to leave it unworn and sell--unless I absolutely love it, which I'm not sure about. It is highly redundant vs. the 372, and needlessly more precious.

    Congrats, Foo. Gorgeous piece. Like the 372, a statement piece.

    It's massive. But then again it is a Panerai.

    It should. Secondary prices are around $13,000-15,000 now, versus $10,400 at retail. As production completes and people on waitlists realize they won't get one, prices will only go up.
