    Unhappy All Balls! to No Balls!

    Hey guys;

    My sad end to the year: I live with my bother and we both collect and love fine time pieces. but late last nigh when I left to work (graveyard) some home invaders came in a ransacked our home and pistol whipped my bro real bad! I should have known something was up when some guy was posting ADT adds on door knobs late in after noon (Ironic) and my sensor light would not turn on outside. But I'm not always in criminal mind mode. Most the time I'm on get my butt to work mode.
    I guess with the economy getting so bad and thieves being lazy cowards are now getting more desperate. the good thing is we can live to work another day and maybe collect some more in the future. witch hard working people normally move on and do.
    All in all they took watches including Ball, Breitling, Citizen, Omega, and some low end quarts that I was found of because they were gifts. I'm getting some of the serial #s and posting them but doubt they'll turn up.
    I'm grateful I still have my brother and Ball still makes fine time pieces! so were moving out and I'm saving again. Maybe next year will bring something good!
    Here are couple of pics of my White Cow that I will miss.

    I'm so sorry Bro! But, it's just material, at least you and your family are safe! you can always buy more watches, but not another family member...

    Best of luck

    What a bunch of creeps, these home invaders. I'm sorry to hear of this nightmarish event. Completely unreal how cruel life can be sometimes... hope all will be better soon for you and your family and your brother recovers from his pistol whipping.

    Make sure to post the serial numbers up on the Stolen Watch Report.

    So sorry to hear about your experience and your loss. You will pull through, I'm sure. As others have said, you still have your life and your brother. Your collection of time pieces will be replaced in time. Best wishes.

    Regards,

    Trivia question of the month:
    The history of the Baselworld Watch and Jewellery Show dates back to what year, when there was established the first Schweizer Mustermesse Basel (MUBA) with a special section devoted to watches and jewellery?

    You all are a great bunch! thanks for sympathy and concerns, thieves were wearing gloves and left no evidence. I do appreciate the fact they left my brothers life behind, and I would give them a lifetime supply of my Balls or any other watch for that matter in trade for him!!!
    I'll be back and showing off my new Ball sometime in the hopefully not so far future.
