First post. Never heard of Ball in 2018. Going into 2020 I own five. You could accuse me of getting carried away but I love the lot. It all started with a Submarine Warfare preorder. Then I saw a Trainmaster 60 Seconds and thought it was the perfect Sunday watch, although I don't go to church. The Roadmaster Raffles was a bargain and so absolutely stunning in person. So I put down my foot and said enough! Then Ball goes and releases the Engineer Hydrocarbon Original, which is the Ball grail watch of all time -- believe me! That leaves a Pepsi Roadmaster Vanguard which I have no recollection of preordering. ;)
Why, you might ask? I enjoy watching the sweeping hands of time. I got other brands of watches. I'm not comfortable wearing collectables in public. The Balls fly under the radar yet I admire them as much as some more expensive brands I have.
