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.

    A pic of my vintage manual Rolex 6420 from 1958. Bought it in Hong Kong 16 years ago and never wear it.

    Why you didn't wear this Rolex? I like thise vintage.

    I use to wear it occasionally but maybe due to the size it feels too delicate for me. I actually like chronos and sportier watches better. Originally I planned to give it to my teenage son but he likes the bigger watches too.

    No, I don't mind. Its a great example of how Breitlings should still be sstyled/sized.

    I'm not a fan of very large watches, so the size of the vintage Rolex appeals to me.

    I can confidently say that I have never seen a 3 holding a date window snuggly like this before.

    How does the subtle rose gold tinting look? Change color in the light?

    Thanks gdl.. your opinion actually matters to me as you have a lot of knowledge on watches

    Thank you. It looks a lot more expensive than it is

    Looks awesome in the flesh. Haven't noticed any colour changing?
