    Picture Ball display at recent Hong Kong watch fair

    Here's a pic of the Ball display at the recent Hong Kong watch fair. Shows the EMII Diver Chronometer, but also shows what looks like the black dial EH GMT II, but with the same wider hour markers as the diver cosc and a different handset (or are my eyes deceiving me)...

    Not sure who is the AD (or regional distributor), but showing any watches at a watch fair wrapped in plastic is not a good business strategy IMO.

    Yes, I agree, but I wouldn't mind at all unwrapping that delicious white dial GMT II!

    I agree, unwrap them!

    Man, how do you like the size difference between the EMII Chronometer Diver and he HC? Still looks like stainless steel to me... lol...

    Saw that Engineer Master II Diver chronometer in newspaper ad two days ago. Looks impressive. If not mistaken, it has 56 tubes!
    Must check out at the local AD.

    The Engineer Hydrocarbon GMT II is the double-sized hour marker version of the GMT model. (The same is true of the EH Classic II.) This is a very fine photo of the watch 'in the wild.' 40mm on the Hydrocarbon, 44mm for the Diver Chronometer.

    Box got one in on Friday (my AD here in Houston). Either I have to make more money or stop going by there so much. He also told me the reason he does not unwrap them from the plastic is so they are not scratched up by people like me who have to try it on.
