    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.

    Only iPhone pics, but I've been hanging out at the GO AD this week. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
    I have such a hard on for that watch. I only ever see the silver and blue for sale though. [​IMG]

    I can't find "the right one". Maybe I'll hold out for something else. [​IMG] Got a new iPhone lately though. Pics are much better. [​IMG]

    When did they change the deployant on the GO ML? This one looks much better than mine and clearly more fitting for such a great watch.

    My understanding is that GO changed their deployant a few years back. I tried one on as was looking to upgrade from the older deployant on my Senator Panorama. It's definitely more comfortable and secure than the previous generation, but ended up selling the watch so never pulled the trigger.

    Love the PML. But there are always a few Senators that I'm more drawn towards.

    Now that you mention it, I found the deployant a little surprising. I wouldn't characterize it as "sophisticated."

    It was more "solid" and "toolish". I have every confidence in it's ability to do it's job, and it was obviously well crafted (I've been staring at it a lot lately), but it was a little, "chunky". A CNC'd block of steel. [​IMG]

    I was offered a pretty good deal on these two, but they just aren't doing it for me.

    So, is it just me that is a little disappointed in GO? This is the first time I've seen them in the flesh, as I live in Flyover, USA.

    I tend to bang the hell out of my watches. So, when I decided to upgrade from G-Shocks and Fossils (still love my G-Shocks), I didn't want to drop a ton of cash, so I got this Lum-Tec M15. Yeah...it's definitely not a high-end Swiss watch, but it gets tons of compliments. And Lum-Tec is known for their lum (obviously with that name) and it definitely glows a nice green. When in a bar, club or theater people notice it.

    Lum-Tec is a boutique watch maker from Ohio. They make limited editions of each of their watches. This is #99 of 100 of the M15.

    I prefer the silver to the black, but I find it very uni-dimensional. It's just "silver". There is nothing about its appearance that reaches up and grabs me by the neck.

    Then I guess they're not for you, nothing wrong with that. My PML is my favorite watch out of my whole watch collection.

    +1 Although, the Senator Navigator Chrono isn't too shabby with the numerals and blue hands and the Senator Chronometer is [​IMG] Their website is abysmal.
