Interesting ...

I noticed the site went down sometime last year.

Doing a WHOIS search on the url reveals that Rolex USA grabbed the domain name last May.

I'd been racking my brain trying to remember that site; And that explains why I couldn't retrace my way back to it via Google -- it was up till prob mid 2015 (it was entirely new to me at that time).

Too bad that WaybackMachine hasn't indexed any images either... It was hands down one of the most extensive resources available on the net.

Wonder what it says that Rolex acquired the domain name?...
