Nice custom strap...price is way too high for a 7750.  If you want to spend 1/2 that, try www.ball.com and find truly luminous watches. I think $650 tops for the watch and $100 bucks for the strap is upper reasonable.

I was under the impression a real 7750 movement alone was more then $600 new.  It would be quite hard to do with normal profit for a whole nice watch for under $1000.

Well, i don't know how to say this without offending anyone.

For me, it looks like a cheap mechanical wrist watch with a generic asian clockwork (probably by some company called "BTC"?) or maybe with a custom engraving of these three letters.

Worth: probably 5$.

Correct me if i'm wrong.

No offence, but I guess you're not the intended target audience.

Check out this site called Buy It Cheaper (http://www.buycheapr.com/us/result.jsp?ga=us10&q=eta+valjoux+7750) and then bear in mind that this particular watch is a limited edition.

If it doesn't appeal to any early adopters of bitcoin, then might do to someone who's already wealthy (or a bit of a spender) who wants to take a punt on bitcoin, or who is just into collecting exclusive/expensive watches.

Is it just me, or does this link have nothing to do with watches?

In the context in which it is used (i.e. that fiat currency can be, has been, and is, used for as many nefarious/unsavoury activities as btc), I'd have to say yes.

As far as I know, it should work on Mac too. There's also a dedicated Wordpress plugin and the above code, which littleshop pasted, is take from the Bitcoin Plus website miner page: http://www.bitcoinplus.com/miner/embeddable (and no, it's not a referral link, just for your information).

If my CPU cycles are my property, then this is sort of like stealing french fries off my plate over and over again until I slap your hand away. Kinda scummy, IMO. Bitcoin should be striving for legitimacy, but everyone seems to like playing in the gutter instead.

you should get a thesaurus. We get it, your a "babe" Smiley

btw: have you actually made anything from the web miner?

I had a webminer on a 1000+ hit a day site for a month and this was back when the difficulty was way low like 3 months ago, made like .000000323 BTC

IMO (and I am the webmaster of several sites) you will do much better not pissing people off by using their computer's resources , then the few cents you will make from using a web based miner on your web sites.

You have to realize you may get users that are running a P4 with 256mb of ram and IE7

that webminer is going to slow their whole computer down to a grinding halt and possibly crash them
and I am not "trolling" this is a subject I have thoroughly experimented with myself. Just a nickels free of advice for you babe.

Well, thanks for the advice.

And no, I'm not making much at all and don't expect to (no doubt a strange concept to most around these parts). I view it more like street performing for a few stray nickels than a serious money making scheme. There's a lot of talk on these boards about spreading the word about bitcoin to Joe and Jane public, this is my way of doing it.

And while you may think I need a thesaurus (because, gosh, using the same word five times over two posts surely shows my lack of vocabulary), I'm sure you meant 'We get it, you're a "babe" ' as opposed to 'your a "babe." ' I won't point out your other mistakes as I'm sure it's just human error and this isn't your PhD thesis or anything.

hhahahahhahaah

that was the best laugh I had all night.

thank you.

we all have agendas right? One of my agendas is to do everything I can to help keep the Bitcoin world as clean as possible, because I personally believe that the worst thing for us is to get pigeon holed as a anonymous currency for those who want to buy pornographic web site subscriptions without our wives finding out and buying drugs from silk road etc. My actual point was that you can distinguish your femininity amongst us crypto geeks without having any kind of sexual theme and be just as successful.

At least with me you can. Thank you for your response it was well taken.

"Why yes, I'm spreading the good word of Bitcoin by grinding people's computers to a halt and not even bothering to ask them first. This will surely promote goodwill and not at all make people associate Bitcoins with viruses and other crap that makes their computers unusable. You can tell my intentions are honorable because I'm hardly even making any money from screwing those people over!"

Updated images of the rotor have been posted to the original post. We're waiting for the new dial imprinting plate to come in any day now. The first Bitcoin Chronograph should be completed soon after. We'll post updated pictures as soon as it is completed.
