    Show us your BALL WATCH!!!

    I just came from the Fortis forum thread and loved going through all the pictures of all the members watches and wondered why there's not one for BALL watches, so here's my attempt... (i know there's a list thread but pictures are much better)

    Here's my Fireman I 43mm and 40mm (updated 9/20/09)












    Let's see yours...

    Mods, please sticky (if possible) thanks...

    Rob, you got Balls! Awesome

    Btw, the lights on the black dial Night Train looks different from the one they have on their website. The 12 hour is red and the seconds are all green. Is the one you got the new one and they haven't updated their site?

    The one in my picture is the first generation model that had blue tubes and the "error dial." The second generation had the same color with the exception of a red 12 marker. The current generation is all green lume with a red 12 marker.

    The current version's green tubes are much more visible, but they're not as pretty as the original blue version, IMHO.

    The first generation model read, "Universal Time Coordinated" above the military time window. This, of course, was an error since the watch does not have a UTC feature. The military time window is not independently adjustable. Ball quickly responded to the criticism and came out with a dial that reads, "Universal Military Time," which is what you see on the current models. Ball also offered to retrofit first gen models to have the corrected dial.

    Here's a link to Ball's response to the issue, and the forum's follow-up responses:

    Regarding the Night Train

    All-in-all, Ball's response was first rate.
