    Yes, and registered on the warranty as well.

    In many cases, it is the violent shaking and abrubt stopping of one's arm that can throw a mechanical movement off. You would have to gauge whether or not your drumming, at any specific time, might be violent enough to 'upset' the movement.

    Very cool that you are a Jazz drummer. What style(s) do you play.

    Ball watches have an additional advantage of using GTLS tritium tubes for lume. Not all of their watches feature SpringLOCK. Most use ETA movements, they alsohave a relatively new manufacture 80 hour power reserve movement.

    I have several Ball watches, they are well made. Their slogan used to be 'Accuracy Under Adverse Conditions'. There is an Official Ball Forum here on WUS.

    I also have three Oris watches and used to have a fourth. Oris makes a nice watch as well.

    Good point, the movement won’t be violent but there will be lots of sudden movements, it is probably safer not to wear it when playing.
    I play mostly Jazz, bossa nova, soft rock, funk. I am not a heavy hitter, so I don’t play heavy rock or metal. Thanks for the info on the Ball watches, I will check them out.

    As a ex-tenor sax player, I think Oris did a great job with the Coltrane watch, even adding the Blue Train tracks on the dial. It was also around 2,000usd. Ultimately, if you want, and will enjoy, a themed watch, do it and don’t look back.
