after a receiving a nice letter form customs kindly asking for just over $2k in import tax it got me thinking of what watches I could have got for that if I had bought the watch within the EU. I have come across Ball watches a few times on the internet, and although have never actually handled one, I like the fact that they seem (I could be wrong) to make good looking watches and be a brand who are not trying to imitate or copy other brands, they dont try and pass of thier movements as inhouse and its nice to see. I like the titrium tubes they use and the fact they use ETA means that as long as there are no issues with the case spares are no issue for my watchmaker to get.
They seem to represent good bang per buck, or is this a brand to be taken with a pinch of salt?
I am particularly interested in the Diver World time as I dont have a world time watch in my collection.
