    Engineer III King

    Hi,
    New to Ball watches. Does anyone have any thoughts regarding the new Eng III King offering?
    Is the Pre Order strategy new to Ball?
    Thanks

    I'm excited about this new offering. I think it's a great strategy for to create interest in the entire Ball line. I'm waiting on a pre-order of of the Engineer III Silver Star. While I like the design of the Silver Star III, I like the looks of the Engineer King III (with the use of more tritium tubes) more. If anyone missed out on the pre-order of the Silver Star III I'd be happy to sell my 40 mm diameter blue dial steel bracelet model as new when it comes in. It'll be easier to explain to my wife then getting 2 new watches in a year.

    It is nice isn t it. I had preordered the dual time voyager yet this one seems even better looking. 40 and 43 both look good.
    A pity that it doesn't include the special shock protection around the balance wheel that some Balls offer - though it has the general anti shock ring around the movement.
    I like the engineering approach as a diversifier. The only feature still on the wish list would be a very hard case a la Sinn or Damasko.

    It looks like a real winner.

    I think it is a great design and a fantastic looking watch. If I hadn't gone in for the Engineer 2 Voyager with the dual time zones I would probably bite on it. But I did go for the Engineer 2 Voyager so gonna have to pass for reasons of money.

    I am also thinking of putting a few on the chopping block to make way for this one. It's one of the coolest Balls I've seen in a while. I won't be selling any of my Balls though. They are all keepers. :)
