    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.

    So is the Grande Reverso Calendar as big as all the other Grande models, but slightly thinner? I found that the Ultra Thin, while the face is as big as the Grande, 'works' better for me because the case is much thinner, much less clunky on wrist. It looks good, though.

    I haven't seen that model in person, but I favor the slimmer cases. When they get thick like on most of the XGT sized cases, they lose a lot of their versatility.
    Nice RO, although I probably wouldn't wear it on the same wrist as all those bracelets. I wouldn't want the 2 metal bracelets banging against eachother.

    Agreed, the RO doesn't take too kindly to scratches and dings.

    I could go about this, but I'll refrain from going further than saying that this is unbalanced.

    Anyone remember "Kajagoogoo"? Hmm.

    Anyway, sorry for the diversion, I have a question about a question: is there already a thread where one might ask advice about watch restoration? Also, identification?
