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.

    Hey,
    Looking at getting a good quality mechanical watch (manual winding) for my dad this Christmas; and am in a price range of less than $600. More of a traditionally styled watch with a leather or exotic skin strap, something along the lines of this (very rough guide, suggest what you will):

    I like the caseback but I find the face a tad too noisy for my tastes.

    The movement is stunning! Sadly, I just don't love the dial. The positive side of that is I won't have to set up a charity to compete with Stitchy's JLC charity.

    Yours is nicer anyway.

    For me, the OP aesthetic or at least the good strain of the OP aesthetic is thesimplicity. I loved mine - sandwich dial to add a just a little visual interest but otherwise unadorned - hands scaled to the numerals, otherwise blank dial.

    I don't get a PAM with a guilloche dial, reverse cyclops, petite seconde and power reserve.

    the dial is not actually guilloche, that was a reflection from the case on the iphone taking the pic, the dial actually is flat, like below. but i will take pictures once it is out of the safe and ready for sale.

    either way, i agree with you. i specifically chose my panerai because i wanted a simple, no frills, 2 handed watch.

    edited to swap out bad pic.
