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.

    That's a handsome looking piece. Nice pickup.

    Still in the market for an answer to my questions. Anybody?

    ^ Nice Rolex, shirt cuff and jacket sleeve, gaz. Shame about the beads.

    You know, in many parts of Asia, the beads are not a fashion accessory but rather charms that people wear for good luck. This one in particular was blessed by some monk near the big Buddha and its suppose to bring me sartorial luck during the year of the rabbit. [​IMG]

    heh - the irony. I hear in some parts of the world people wear watches only to tell time [​IMG] Would you mind taking/putting up more pics of that Sarpaneva with the custom face? [​IMG]

    Here's the back. This is actually a piece unique. Stepan has never made a K2 with this winding mass design, or so he tells me. [​IMG]

    No, one from our shop - honestly my favourite item (and the best strap I've tried yet, hands down); outstanding value for money. Thin, supple, beautiful leather quality...

    Lovely photo if not for the beads. Really ruins the shot for me.

    Mate, I will for this day onwards post additional wrist shots without beads or bracelets just for you [​IMG]

    I hate to incur the wrath of the wraith.

    There are lots of great watches on this thread, and since I've been following it for the last 4-5 months or so, this one really stands out.. Well done.

    Love it. The managing director I used to sit right next to had the same one. I would stare at it while he was talking to me.

    I can appreciate the actual craftmanship and mechanics of this watch but to my eye, it looks like something you could pick up a Hot Topix for $20. [​IMG]
