    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.

    All ARs get worn with time - live with it. If it disturbs you, just polish it off.

    How do you guys feel about the AP Royal Oak Chrono? I am fully loaded with vintage Rolex, clean dialed dress watches and the like. I'm ready for some unashamed bling. Thinking of selling a few pedestrian divers and a few seldom user watches to finance this:

    At least it's not an ROO? Right? [​IMG]

    ^ Please consider a plainer dial - blue, black or white.

    The fancier dials detract from the iconic but yet clean design of the RO.

    Perhaps it just me, but i have always disliked those AP, also Panarai - there is something vulgar about them.

    For the price you pay for a AP you can get a nice Omega, IWC, JLC - even Patek if used and lucky [​IMG]

    I've had this Tissot Seastar 1000 for about 6 years or so, and I'm getting tired of the rubber strap. Any ideas for a different strap?

    How about a Hirsch strap? My Sinn U1 SDR

    I like the non-chrono RO but have never liked the chronos that much.
    I'd go for the full tuna can and get the ROO if I was getting a chrono.

    My RO.

    +1. I've yet to see an AP that didn't look cheap and ugly. Now ALS, VC, and PP -- those guys make gorgeous watches.

    You are a bunch of purists, aren't you? [​IMG] Well, to apologise for the horrid picture of the AP (I still love it), here is my Certina for you [​IMG]
