    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.

    It's a white dial/blue numbers IWC Port Chrono on a blue strap, and a vintage Heuer Autavia 11630MH. The other IWC is an Ingy 3227.

    IWC bracelets (i.e. separate from the watch head) seem to be rarely offered for sale. You could try the usual suspects - watch forums, second hand dealers and eBay? Note that my Mk XV bracelet is different to the bracelet for the current Mk XVI, if that matters to you.

    Looks a tad large on the wrist, how comfortable do you find it?

    I'm surprised at all the love on here for GO. People gonna sheeple. Clear demonstration of the lack of originality on the boards - no flame:slayer:

    They have nicely finished movements, but they don't feel like a luxury watch. GS IMO is a superior watch in terms of feel, finish and overall refinement.

    Pardon my ignorance but what does "GO", "GS" and "sheeple" stand for?

    Grand Seiko is superior to Glashuette Original ? Yes, sure, you won't lack originality with statements like this.

    Also, aren't you the one who posted a GP up in this thread - not exactly top of the food chain...

    I believe GP is Girard Perregaux.

    Beautitful IWC...I love the chrono but find them too large for my 7.25 wrist with my sweetspot being between 36-42mm. I prefer the smaller vintage IWC Portugieser Automatic Ref. 3531.

    I find it as comfortable as any other watch. I also wear 47mm Rads at times too.

    For those that need a translation:
    Sheeple = portmanteau of sheep and people
    GO = Glashutte Original
    GS = Grand Seiko

    For those that want an opinion... although GS makes a great watch the finishing on the movement and dials of a GO is still better.
