    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.

    Agreed, the rubber strap with the dial is a major reason why I like the watch so much. I wouldn't want to change that up.

    Aquanaut looks so great! I think for myself, I'd be inclined to save up another $5-7,000 and get a Nautilus. It's all theoretical at this point, not having the funds or the stomach to really go above $10,000 yet.

    The thing I like most about this is that it's just a ton of fun. There's certainly value in beautiful movements, rare dials, etc etc, but stopping just to have fun with a watch is so cool to me.

    Went to an MB&F dinner last night. Max Busser is as cool a guy as his reputation makes him out to be. Very open and honest, very approachable.

    To NYC TWATers - MB&F will soon be available in NYC, when London Jewelers open a new place downtown.

    Very cool pieces in person, even if most of them are way too crazy for me personally.

    Finally pulled the trigger on a watch I had been eying for years. Will post pictures over the weekend. It is pre-1970.

    Wasn't aware that London was opening a NYC location. I have purchased all my watches through them.

    The salespeople I met from London were actually into watches, and very personable. Which is much more than I can say about the average salesperson.

    Not bad, there's at least one member on TRF who's done it, but for me the rubber strap for this one is such an integral part of the whole package I see no reason to do it.

    Gents,

    A while back I asked for some suggestions on watches that would help commemorate a big shift in my career. I got some great suggestions from VC, PP, AP and ALS. I finally decided on one to go forward with and will be picking it up in the middle of January in NYC. I've been too excited to wait to have it in hand before dropping this teaser.

    Thanks for all the help, you guys were tremendous enablers!

    I agree. Funny thing, years ago when rubber straps first began to appear on high end sport watches I thought it somewhat incongruous and wasn't a big fan. Now I've come to see them as a viable option for more and more watches.

    I agree the rubber is perfect for it.

    RP - you need to come and post more often again. In fact, calling out @in stitches as well! :D

    seriously we miss you guys. Hope all's well with you both!
