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.

    Cheers,

    My wrist is too small. I originally wanted the blue chrono but the extra 1.5mm plus the chrono pushers makes it out of my size range. Even this one is pushing it in size for my wrist.

    Plus overall, I think this one is more versatile. It also gives me a reason to buy an Omega Blue Bond in the future since I can't see myself owning more than one blue dialed watch at a time.

    Nice Mark XVI, I want one in a bracelet myself.


    Thanks. I opted for the strap, and swapped the black gator for the brown buffalo because I really wanted the vintage military watch look, but the bracelet offered on that watch is one of the nicest I've ever seen.

    Also, if you like slightly smaller (40mm and below) pieces, consider the Speedmaster Date Automatic w/blue dial instead of the Bond watch. Slightly smaller, slightly rarer and doesn't have the helium valve which I'm really not a fan of.

    Out of curiosity, did you really pay 160K for that? Not too keen on the emoticons, but if there's a prostrating one, insert here.

    Also, looks like Wall-e.

    No details, I'm afraid - case and dial are unmarked, but I think it's a Landeron movement inside. Bought for close to nothing and lovely in its vintage feel...

    Yes - but figuratively speaking of course.
