    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.

    I agree with you Warren on Cylon getting the ref 3572 Speedy. The best of both worlds. They are getting harder to find and more expensive however. I got out bidded a couple of times on eBay a while back.

    In the above discussion about ugly watches, clearly you gentlemen are not acquainted with Roger Dubuis...

    great choice, a perfect complement to your lovely JLC.
    my speedy (c. 2006) just says 'the first watch worn on the moon'.
    personally i'd always take the classic hesalite model.

    These look very nice, what straps are those? Also, is this an Omega MilSub (if that term exists)?

    New (to me) PAM244.

    I know some people want nothing to do with a 40mm Panerai, but I'm really happy with this

    Congrats theyare,

    To me it seems like you made the right choice as the traditional 44mm would probably be too big for you. Looks great on your wrist.

    The Omega is a vintage SM300. It's not a military issued example.



    I made the strap myself. I needed some to fit the character of my vintage watches.
