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.

    Yes, overall I really liked the original Oversease design more than the current one, but the bracelet getting jammed can be a pain. A buddy of mine had both the time with Arabic numerals and the black dial chronograph version of the 1st generation Overseas. He seemed to have more issues with the chronograph version and eventually sold it. He still has the time only model which is his daily wearer. I've tried on the 2nd generation Overseas chrono and it just doesn't appeal to me.

    Keep saving its worth it! I also encouraged the MRS buy a few pieces of jewelry during the last 2 years to ease the path for this purchase. Plus I sold an Explorer 1 that I bought 10 years ago and rarely ever wore. It was all worth it!!!

    It has always been not now, someday when I have cash blabla.. But If I actually save few pennies every month I would end buying it. The time goes by so fast...If I count how much I spend on clothes every month I could easy buy this watch in a couple of months, need to break the shoe-shopping for a while :D

    Thanks for the response. If I get one it will definitely be the Zenith movement. I was unaware of all the mods that rolex had done to the movement. Thanks for the info.

    not exactly. i work for a company that has both a store, and also a buying operation separate from the store. there are a few locations where we do buying, each one in a slightly different way, geared towards different specialties and clienteles. i work in one of the buying operations.

    Call me crazy but I think this is pretty cool and classic. And it works very well with your outfit.

    Have any of the limited Casa Fagliano strap (brown or the black cordovan) Jaeger Reverso Tribute 1931 models come across your desk? This is the watch I am obsessing over recently.
