    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.

    That is beautiful.

    OK, I am not a watch guy and am not sure if I can ever get used to having something on my wrist, but do you find the watches with a splash of color like that one to be less versatile to wear with suits in the workplace? I am sure where I work nobody would care but I want to know what watch people think is most proper.

    Great watch! I have an Omega Seamaster Deville from the same time period.

    Thanks. The splash of colour stop wouldn't stop me from wearing that watch with a suit. The sporty rally type strap is however not ideal, a black or dark brown croc strap usually works better with a suit. Biggest problem is however the large size, which makes it difficult to wear comfortably with shirt cuffs. I see lots of people wearing Panerai or other big watches with suits; while it looks rather clumsy, it is not uncommon at least in a Hong Kong business environment.

    Okay, I get it. It's a clunker. I'm digging the brown dial so the search will continue. Any suggestions?
    If you want a brown dial and a chrono, go with this one: PAM 311, you'll also get a second time zone and a 8 days rÃ[​IMG]serve de marche indicator "for free" [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] On my wish list, unfortunately after too many watches.

    Isn't the Speedmaster available with a brown dial as well?

    Thanks. Although TAG Heuer may not up there in the horological heaven, I have a special weakness for the Monaco model. It's got that special '70s feeling that I sometimes crave... [​IMG]

    Really like the one on the right; any chance you can say a bit more about its details? What does the red/blue lining symbolize?

    Alright - let me rephrase; I mean the Speedmaster Professional, stainless steel, with a brown dial. Smartass...

    Wasn't interested in a manual wind with no date, otherwise I would have jumped on it.

    It's a hint to the movie "Le Mans".
