Watches are great :)

Hence such an active thread. Omega Seamaster is a classic!!

Just a question but what purpose does closing down a thread and opening a new one serve?

I went for the Casio G Shock GW 4000 1AER. Found an online discount code for 6% off and had loyalty points to use from the last watch I bought so should get it Wed. Now I have 3 GShock watches, a Citizen Eco drive chronograph, Accurist chronograph and a Lorus Chronograph. I cam see me buying another Chronograph in Vegas if I see something I like.

Here's the new Casio GShock:

I would presume it's server related. If it's not, I genuinely have no idea.

I weighed in a gold chain I had and bought my first watch, a Raymond Weil. Had it about 2 years now...

I'm sure there's a good reason. Could admin put a link of the old thread in the the first post for those who want to look at all the photo's. :)

To be fair the pictures probably made up most of the previous thread.
BMWP 269 Alloys, BMWP pedals, Darkline rear lights, Aero spoiler, Beesting aerial, Tinted rear windows.
BMWP front bumper, Black grilles, BMWP SSK, Angel eye's, BMWP Strut brace.

Not sure why there is a new thread? Can't see how it affects the server?

Shame really.

If its such a problem maybe we should ban the talk of watches on this "car forum'". I thought this forum was more than just about cars :(
Now:

118D E87 LCI Sport Manual in Black Sapphire (N47)

Begs the question why have a general forum, then wonder why people talk about non car stuff.

Guys....just let it be!!!! This is the general chat section of a car forum. Any subject goes, so I'm sure there is a good reason for it.

Perhaps it is backup issues because the thread was so long? Who knows, and who cares, just get back to watches!

I would imagine its server related. There must be a reason otherwise admin wouldn't have done it.

Not really an issue as we can still discuss them here.

Gives me a reason to post another pic of mine :-)
