    Allow myself to introduce myself....

    I have been a watch collector for many years have had many major brands but recently found ball watches based on their cheesy advertisings... I thought it was just a gimmick but after seeing them in person at an authorized dealer I I knew that they were something very special. My first Ball watch was an engineer master 2 DLC in blue, my next one is actually the very last Ionosphere, in the US and direct from the factory in Switzerland, it is a white dial with charcoal subdials, on the factory bracelet. My next one will either be a generation 1 night train, or a generation 1 engineer masters 2 diver, black on black. I find the generation 1 models are good value for the money and quite unique in dial design. Now here are some picturesName:  uploadfromtaptalk1405464076902.jpg

    ^ thanks all... Man besides a couple microbrews brands and beaters... My collection will pretty much be all ball all the time! They are addicting! And one of the few brands that I don't mind getting brand new. I've also got my eye on the marvelight and the new emll pilot GMT.

    How do like that DLC? I "accidentally" purchased one with yellow instead of blue. Only problem is, I also picked up a PO last week. More than likely I will only end up keeping one but I thought I give it a fair chance and alternate for a week before making a decision.

    It's been my favorite! I've got a lot of watches... Different brands, values... And it's my daily wear! Very rugged... I work construction and do a lot of electrical and plumbing and it's got some scratches... But nothing major... Worth every penny! So much so that from now on I'm going to make my whole collection all ball watches!

    Looks like the Ball DLC is going back. The hands had scratches and nicks on it and also some crystalline solid. Didn't want to deal with that. It is a pretty good looking watch and the lume looks cool. The lume wasn't as bright as I had thought though. The PO is ridiculously bring and looks like it'll be my daily. PO is also more than double the price of the Ball so it's not quite fair. At the same price point, I am sure I would pick Ball. Looks like I will continue only to be a lurker here but I always like browsing the Ball forums!
