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.

    I sent my wife to the bank one day - a branch in an affluent suburb - to pick up cash for a large purchase. She asked the teller for $8000 in hundreds. She was told they don't have that much on hand and she should have called ahead. She then asked what they have the big room with the steel door for. The answer was that they did, in fact, have a little more than the requested amount on hand in hundreds but they have a policy of not alloting it all to one customer. The options were to take the money in a mix of smaller bills or call back later in the day and ask if the cash delivery had come in. I'm not making this up. Wouldn't a call like that send a teller running for the alarm?

    My wedding ring is platinum, so any casing other than white gold or stainless doesn't work for me. I highly prefer brown straps and stainless to black, so that is somewhat limiting. These are some I like a lot though, in no order:


    [​IMG]

    I love the classic Cartier face, and I love the shape of the Roadster. For my arm, the large size is a little big, the midsize a little small. I'm also a lefty, so the winder might be irritating as it's very large.

    Not a huge Panerai fan, but this one is nice. Probably the only watch I've seen where a brown strap and black face look good.

    Clean lines, easy to dress up and down.

    My favorite Omega.

    Vintage 18k Constellation. . .
    That is a stunner, although I prefer the pie-pan dials and without a date window. Best yet are the versions with arrowhead markers. I also prefer white and/or honeycomb to colored. On original bracelets, especially gold rice, would be even cooler.

    Please make me happy and show me a bunch of old Connies.

    Omegablogger, do you know where I could get that gold Omega logo on the dial? I have an 18kt vintage Omega Tresor model that has it missing. My favorite Constellation are the Luxe models with the hooded lugs: [​IMG]

    Yes it's my name. I was on the "blackOPS PAM" project since its inception.

    These are some I like


    So here is a home to post your pictures of your watches (I think it's more interesting if we stick to our own watches rather than reposting stock photos or other people's scans)


    oooooooooooo

    I believe RGM Watches in Mt. Joy (Lancaster) PA could remedy that for you. They're not cheap though.
