You have done a great job with this watch the Crystal , dial and hands totally change the appearance of the watch. That swiss red sapphire is Stunning Cool

its better in real life, didnt think i would like it as i was disappointed at not getting a Yokobies mm300 dial, but it turned out good

Can the forum software auto resize the pictures? I can't see all of them even at 1080p?

I changed my default upload size in photobucket to 800x600 and now when I insert an image it imports at that size by default

just bought a Strapcode SuperOyster for the watch, the good thing about these bracelets , apart from the quality is that they are devoid of any branding so i can etch my own brand on the clasp
