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,

    In an ideal world I'd cop patek.

    I was in the jeweler a week or so getting my wife a new watch and some guy had a 1957 calatrava he inherited from his grandfather. It was one of the prettiest watches I've seen, but definitely small by today's standards.

    Will do thanks, port auto but no idea when I will actually cop. Haven't even gone to a watch shop in years, I keep telling myself I don't need one. I was thinking of buying from NY and having them ship.

    Patek one day.

    The AD I deal w/ is in Philly, so no worries on getting raped on CA Sales tax.

    Govberg? They should actually discount IWCs nicely if you bargain hard. Obviously, it's a little tougher on the most sought after pieces (big pilot and port auto w/ black face). I like the new ss port auto with the gold hands and numbers.

    patek and lange seem too old for me. even if i had the $ for the entry level pieces i might go IWC/ JLC instead. Dunno why. Just brand image i guess.

    Yup, I have a good contact there and have bought several watches from them.

    IWC is cracking down HARD on discounts though. They are sending so many of their watches these days to China and less to the US, hence smaller supply and less discounts. IWC used to pretty much be a 30% discount across the board. 30 off can still be had, but truth be told 20% on IWC these days is good.
