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.

    So this applies to the business traveller, less so to the holiday traveller?

    I don't mind leaving one in the hotel safe as long as it's in my room which is usually in a nice hotel. Depending on what pat of the world I'm in however, and what I'm doing there then I would agree with the above. Nothing attracts more attention in certain areas than a nice watch and it can cause you waaaaaaaay more trouble than it's worth just having it on.

    Been awhile guys! Enjoyed catching up on previous posts. Meet my latest acquisition! Chose the sector dial because it adds versility and a pinch of youthfulness to this watch. In shorts or in pants no problem! More thoughts and pictures later. Just in time for the chinese new year!

    I think you have confused me with someone else. I've never given any reasons not to buy from EWC. I've never bought a watch there but I sold them one and everything went well.

    I'm not a big fan of two-tone watches, but the brushed surfaces and light-absorbing dial somehow make that spectacular. Seems a Jumbo is just never wrong. :)

    Agreed. However, I think two-tone actually suits the RO quite well. It highlights the bezel and the bracelet. As this is from the first run in the 70's, it also gives that rich, vintage vibe to it. As you say, the dial ultimately ties it all together. I've had and seen many many RO's, and have to say that there's something special about this one.

    Yes, I also find it one of the rare cases where two-tone works. There really aren't many of those, IMO.


    @novelty77: looking forward to your thoughts and more pics on the sector dial. One of my faves.

    Love.

    Also an example of an RO that looks stellar on a oak brown strap.

    Daytona to watch the 24, or at least the last couple hours on the DVR.

    So, you made your mind up and went for subtle and anonymous, then? Boom and a half my brother, that is something!


    Another totally classic two-tone. Point made!
