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.

    Gerald Genta, the brand, is a more fashion brand but I like the "success" and "gefica" watches a lot.


    Can someone answer my question now?

    1968 Rolex Oyster. My dad escaped the Vietnam War, Pol Pot's Cambodia, and the Iranian Revolution (in that order) with this on. He gave it to me for my 30th birthday.


    Really nice Datejust (and it was a good year) and cool story to go with it.

    Hawt.

    I've always loved the brown croco strap with white stitching.

    Not my pic since I dont have the watch yet. It is from the original posting from timezone.
    As soon as I get it, I will be swapping out the strap for this:

    Thats a beauty!
    If anyone is into a really large Lange then I can get something special:
    A jeweller (who is also a regular Lange retailer) I know is offering a smaller sized Lange pocket watch from ca.1880s that was redesigned as a wrist watch.
    Unfotrunately it faaar to large for me (minimum 44mm, rather even more).
    It is in perfect condition (1A), looks like new and just like new and was perfetly restored.
    Price is 10k€.

    Oh god.

    Unfortunately I find the interlocking sub-dials, exposed movement and single hands make the overall look a complete mess. Can't fault the finishing or the movement but it just doesn't do it for me. For the asking price, I'd rather go for Kari Voutilainen's new piece - the in-house movement Observatoire.

    The hand engraved dial is stunning but what would you expect for a USD75,000 time only piece.

    ^ Kari's doing his own movements now? Nice.

    I still prefer the Lange though. Move aside Konrad der Grosse - this could be my new grail [​IMG]

    Btw the movement is exposed because its a tourbillion (I know some Ts are hidden, but its pretty standard to show it off).

    Do not want. So many great AL&S designs but this one is a train wreck IMO.
