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.

    the alarm function is such a cool feature, although i don't think you really use it in irl. we carry enough gadgets around, which fullfil this better. it's more, when people ask you, why there are two crowns...

    Different strokes indeed. I've always liked leather straps. Am looking for one on my Sub 16610 (only because a 5513 looks better on a NATO strap)

    That Reverso is incredible. Wish I got one instead of an IWC.

    Which IWC did you get? And Cyclon, that is probably the best lineup I have seen since I have been "into" watches!

    I agree. I don't consider myself a brandwhore, but I must say, to see hit after hit...

    Strap can work. I like these previous posts.

    This watch is really quite attractive, but far, far too expensive for an IWC movement.

    I thought RL was using JLC movements?

    I think they are using a mix of different Richemont movements. At least JLC makes their own movements, but an IWC movement is a modified ETA.

    Which modified ETA movement are you talking about?

    Sorry, I read somewhere that the RL IWC movement was actually a modded ETA, but looking for it, I don't see anything about it now. So I might have been wrong and this might be an in-house IWC movement. Still $13K for an IWC movement is a bit much.

    That's around what the IWC models using their in-house movements retail for.
