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,

    That new Patek looks too much like an Omega DeVille. IMO, the Omega actually looks better though.

    3) As long as the new strap has the same width at the end as your Tag strap does you'll be able to use the deployant. Most straps come with lug and tip measurements.


    That's mostly, but not entirely true. He's got to consider thickness as well as width. The band has to taper down enough at the end - too thick and it won't thread through the deployant buckle.

    True, but outside of those massive Panerai custom jobs, I've never actually seen a strap too thick to make it through a deployant end.

    1) There are tons of good strap makers and sellers. I like the DiModell Louisiana Alligator that I got from mywatchmaker.net. If you look Bob up on TZ he offers good discounts for members.

    2) I like honey brown with black. Its a sharp contrast you don't see often.

    Depends on the deployant end. I've got a couple that need the band to taper down very thin in order to fit through. That said, looking at the post again, it looks like the Tag one in question is a Breitling style and will take most any square strap, so I stand corrected. Take Rambo's original advice, which is most will work.
