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.

    Cheers,

    ^ Nice Reversos. What's the button for?


    Both are nice - my dad has that Explorer. I have those two straps too, wearing the sub today on the black Nato :satisfied:

    No need to have both a 5513 and a 14060 IMO. I actually prefer the aesthetics of a 5513 (though not the later ones with white gold markers) to the 14060, but I didn't know that in 1991. And I'm not sure I would have been as hard on a vintage 5513 as I've been on my 14060.

    reversos are lovely...
    is it established that one can switch out the black bay's bezel for a black pelagos one, as somebody said earlier? those two are the first 'new release' divers that i've wanted for a while.

    can anyone (Cylon perhaps?) ;) note the models of the Reversos above (one with button and round sub-dial vs. the no button, rectangular sub-dial)?

    Pay attention to the square small second dial.

    the new one has all the numbers "facing up" whereas the linked one you have there has the numbers going around the dial.

    I can't decide if I like one more than the other or just don't care.

    minor detail, just throwing it out there!

    Love this watch. Def on the short list :)

    just saw this!

    sadly, cant see any of those images here at work (I'm assuming because they are hotlinked and the firewall is making my life difficult) so I will have a look when I get home!!

    Hi guys, I currently own a few watches but nothing on the upper echelons of watches.
    As my 21st is approaching, my dad has given me the privilege to choose a watch for myself with a budget of 10 grand.
    I have one more year of college and after which i would be moving on to help my dad out with his business.
    So, i'm looking for a day to day / dress watch.
    Currently looking at 3 watches, need some opinions on the watches. (Any other recommendation would be lovely)
