    Any specific EMII?

    This is the best I've got . . . a Mad Cow next to EMII Classic on one side and an EMII Diver a couple watches down on the other side:

    Oh, how I love the look of that Mad Cow in the dark! I just realized that I've been sitting here staring at your row-of-Balls-in-the-dark photo for almost five minutes Rob!

    In my opinion, of all Ball models that I've owned, the Mad Cow is the easiest to read the time in the dark. The combination of arabic and stick tubes, in different colors, just works perfectly.

    One of the models that's hardest to read at night is the EMII Diver when the inner bezel is turned so that the "15" and "45" are not in their normal positions.

    I don't have a side-by-side shot handy but I can tell you the numbers will fool you. The dial size of the EMII is almost identical to the Mad Cow but they wear very differently. The EMII case is very thin and light compared to the EH-Mad Cow case. I have the EH Chrono which is a couple mm thicker than the Mad Cow, but the same otherwise. It seems far bigger on my wrist than my EMII TMT L.E. even though the dial size is comparable.

    Here are a couple of pics that I took quite awhile back:



    I agree with Rob; my Mad Cow's by far the easiest watch(for me) to read the time in the dark. It's not Ball's brightest dial, compared to some of their T100 rated models...but the yellow tritium arabic numbers, combined with the green tritium hands and markers, make reading the time remarkably quick and easy.

    I love my Mad Cow. I love how its curved lugs mold to my wrist, how the titanium and ss give it an ideal weight and heft. And I love the quality and fit and finish that it possesses...as all Ball watches do.

    Take care,
    Geoff

    i was talking about the EM II diver. but now, i can't keep my eyes off the EM II classic

    and rob brought up a good point that for the EM II diver, the time may be difficult to read when the internal bezel doesn't have 12 at north

    Interesting point, Rob, and quite true. Any suggested improvements from our forum members?

    I think that you guys at Ball more than solved that legibility issue with the EMII Ti COSC Diver! The extra hour markers on the dial did the trick, especially in yellow. Like the Mad Cow, the different tube colors make it easy to read the time on the Ti Diver.

    EMII Diver


    EMII Ti COSC Diver


    Ultimately, I sold my EMII regular and Ti COSC Divers because of the bicolored bezels. I would repurchase the COSC Diver in a heartbeat if it came in a monochromatic (all black) bezel, without the silver or yellow quarter-hour bezel colors. A monochromatic inner bezel works nicely with other divers out there, such as the Longines Legend. Otherwise, the Ti COSC is perfect IMHO.
