Autumn has arrived here to the East Coast, United States. The season has settled in beautifully, providing us with an endless supply of photogenic scenery. This is my first Ball watch, an Engineer Master II Diver, COSC. Since Autumn is my favorite season I went out to take some pics of it, perhaps to capture it against a gorgeous backdrop. I accidentally bumped it off a ledge with my camera. It plunged 15 feet into 12 inches of water. Three defacing gouges are now permanently ostensible near the center of the dial, there to remind me that I am human. Even with the horrible injuries to the crystal, the watch's overall condition is still acceptable. They are not noticeable enough to subtract from this watch's badassness. The crystal actually still looks good. I am fortunate and grateful the sapphire did not catastrophically rupture allowing water to rush in and destroy the movement. During the week I monitored the accuracy, and it has not changed. It is off by less than one second/day as it was before the spill. Behold, 5000 g-forces put to an unintended test.
