1. I'd like to announce that animated avatars are now available again. You'll have to reload, but they are once more possible.

    We've been doing a ton of work behind the scenes. The site load speed was already under 1/2 of what Huddler's was, on average, and we installed cloudflare, which means that the site should be even faster. A ton more will go on in the weeks and months to come, and some things will be more visibile, and some less.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    Nope, definitely not. The 38.5mm version is ideal for my (7 inch diameter) wrist. Like all Nomos, though not to the extent of the Tangente types, the Club wears large compared to its size - and don't forget the lugs are very long on this perfect wristwatch. [​IMG]

    Perfect is right!

    The 38.5 non date is also much cheaper than the larger dial/date.

    Thanks. Cheers, a

    I really like blank faced, black watches. The problem is I'm having a hard time searching for them because I don't know the proper keywords.

    "Museum" watches

    While pondering/deciding on a Nomos or Stowa or Sinn, I ordered this with a non EEC discount and a further 15% email coupon Nice. The quality of CWs are amazing, especially for the price. I'll post up when it arrives. [​IMG]

    I was looking at the CW C5 Aviator, but at that price point, I decided to go for a Seiko Blue Spark instead. But I'll probably end up buying a CW in the future anyway.

    ^^^

    Great watch, but such a different style than Chris' Pilot.

    Enjoy!

    Well, I was just looking for an everyday kind of watch. Some people may think the Blue Spark is a little dressier, but be that as it may, I don't think it's too dressy not to wear it as a regular kind of watch. Good thing is that they're both relatively cheap [​IMG]

    That is a beautiful watch, audio. Congrats on the purchase. I think I might get one of these too.

    I'm thinking about getting this Seamaster (2551.80):

    [​IMG]

    Is there anything else I should consider in this price range ($1000)?

    I have this exact watch (Seamaster Professional Chronometer), and it is my favorite watch. Goes with everything. Travels everywhere.

    I personally really like the Sinn 556 on the bracelet.

    http://www.watchbuys.com/store/pc/vi...?idproduct=754

    Also, the Sinn 656 is great as well. But on the bracelet, it's very much over $1000, at least from watchbuys (the AD in the US for Sinn).

    One of my favourites. I own the quartz variety of this watch.

    Mens 1870 J. ASSMANN LANGE Antique GOLD Watch GLASHUTTE just sold on ebay for more than I can afford [​IMG] It's too bad too, I was watching this watch (no pun intended) over the last couple days, and honestly thought I could steal it for a cool thousand dollars. But to my dismay, it shot up from $600 to $2k in the final day [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
