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,

    You are definitely one of the few guys who has wrists that are large enough wear such a large, chunky watch. It wouldn't work for me, but it looks good on you. I guess the real question is whether it really puts a smile on your face. If it does, then go for it. If you have some hesitation, then continue to do some research until you find the watch that is right for you. Good luck with whatever you decide.

    Rolex works, though. You may proceed.

    All via the mail. His normal TAT is 4-6 weeks and he did mine 4 weeks on the button. Google him up and you'll find tons of references for his work.

    GP make their own movements. They are a certainly a less popular brand, which is a euphemism for rapidly depreciating. But noone should buy a mechanical watch as an investment.
