    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.

    Here's my dream watch at the moment. 360,000 BPH.

    A watch that actually oscillates 100x a second? How much is that going to retail for?

    Nice LK.
    My grandfather is a big fan of Rados. He is always trying to get me to buy one.

    last time I checked, it was $20,000 USD and all sold out before it hits the market. It's nearly impossible to get one even if you have the dough.[​IMG]

    Very nicely done. Quite unique. The contrast stitching on the strap plays off the dial quite nicely. I like the brown ostrich strap.

    Nice LK.

    I would like to get an original signed buckle.

    See if I were to get a Rado (perhaps one of the stops on our Alaskan cruise this summer) I would want to get one of those ceramic digi ones. Very sporty-techy for that Jil/Raf look.

    hmmm... maybe it's just me, but I don't recall ever seeing a rado with a leather strap. Why don't you just go to your local rado dealer and see if you can purchase one from them? I'd assume they have the ability to order spare parts for repairs and whatnot.

    You need some eccentric tastes to pull those ceramic ones off. I used to be enamoured by all of rado's designs, now, not so much. [​IMG]

    It struck me that were Prada to offer a high-end watch line, they would copy the Rados.

    I've seen some vintage Rado steel buckles, presumably for some of their "dressier" watches. I'm not sure if an authorized dealer could order one unless they were one of those dusty shops that has old stuff lying about.

    Didn't they do a collaboration with IWC? Either way, I prefer the older styles; the new ones are a bit generic, and slightly tacky. Looks like something DSquared might have. Here's a rare Rado--DIE! [​IMG]

    Wow. It looks like an IWC. But it says "Prada" on it. Wow.
