    Ball Engineer II master diver 2007 VERSION!!!! COSC!

    Found this on the sales forum of another site and wasn't sure if it was appropriate to post the url or not.

    It looks like all the 07's are staring to come out in drips and drabs.

    That is one beautiful watch.

    Drips and drabs, depending on the country, I suspect. If you are looking at Marty's Master II COSC, he ships from Hong Kong. They seem to get all new watches there first.

    You are correct, HK always gets all the watches first.

    First on the market and much less expensive than what a US AD is allowed to sell for.

    I appreciate all that Ball had to go through to get permission to sell here in the US, but if I can save hundreds of dollars on each watch by purchasing from Hong Kong, that's what I'll do. I like my AD very much and look to him first for jewelery of any kind, but the moment he told me that he couldn't keep giving me a 30% discount, I turned to the Far East for Ball watches. I'd pay a little premium to buy from my AD here in the States, but not $500 (the difference between buying a Mad Cow from Hong Kong and a US AD). If Ball would permit ADs to give discounts, at least to returning customers, I would buy from my AD again.

    While you may save some up front money, what do you do about a warrenty? Do you just sluff off the watch on someone? What are you going to do when the watch your trans-shipping gets confiscated in transet for not having the proper NRC paper work?

    My AD in Houston works with me, maybe you need to build a repor with one too! I do not discount him when he comes to me for legal work.

    I posted my message above before this forum became the "official" Ball forum. Since I'm now a guest in Ball's house, and in compliance with the spirit of Marc's "Welcome" message mentioning, inter alia, a ban on grey market seller discussions, I'm going to hold off posting more on this topic for now.

    I presume that since WUS is international, this Ball forum permits discussion of purchases from all ADs, regardless of country, and that only "grey market" is off-limits. For what it's worth, all of my new Ball purchases have come from ADs (US and non-US). On the other hand, Ball USA has done alot to get NRC approval for US sales and probably doesn't want people like me harping publicly on the price difference between US and Asian ADs or on the cost-benefit analysis of importing on a personal level. So I won't anymore.

    Feel free to PM or e-mail me to discuss my limited experiences and marginally valuable thoughts.

    The 07 pictured has the white accents, is it going to be availble in any other colors? or is it just white for 2007?
