    Need to flip but which one hits the road??

    With my B-day quickly approaching, i can't shake the lust for a aqua terra "skyfall" she has haunted me for a while now.
    On that basis i'd like to consolidate a piece to keep within my limits but am having difficulty deciding on which one bites the bullet.
    I could roughly make about the same on each so the return isn't the issue.
    They are both beautiful in their own right but i find the Ball a little too dressy even though it's fit and finish in the flesh is quite something. I also love the look of the Sinn but find it just a tad too small for a "aviator" watch. Plus i am not overly keen on the sellita movments compared to the 2824 of the Ball.
    Deep down however i prefer aviator/diver pieces over dress.

    Soooo i'm kinda stuck.

    Help a horo hoarder out and tell me which would you flip and why?

    Def keep the 104. The Ball with its fixed polished bezel and mostly stick indices will have too much overlap with the AT.

    I'd drop that Ball, I don't think I've ever seen a Ball watch that I liked the look of.

    Between the two, I like the Ball better. But since you are going for an Aqua Terra, I'd flip the Ball because they are much more similar.

    Same here. I guess using tritium tubes on most of their line is cool and sort of unique (at their price point) but why do their designs have to be so fugly? With some models it almost looks like they're purposely trying to make the nastiest looking monstrosity possible.

    If I had that Ball and my Skyfall in the same collection, the Ball would never get worn. Bye bye, Ball.

    Would definitely keep the Ball, actually think it looks great. Don't see the problem owning 2 similar watches if that's the look you dig!?

    I prefer the look of the Ball as well but it fits the same dressy-yet-casual class as the AT so in the interests of variety, the Ball should go. You even say you prefer the aviator style so why have two dressy watches?

    I'll agree with the general sentiment here. The AT does what the Ball does, only much better. If I had the two, I know for a fact that the Ball would never get worn as soon as I got the AT.

    I'd keep the Sinn, if for nothing more than variety.
