    Ball Fireman GLory

    I just got an email from Gnomon watches showing the Ball Fireman Glory in black for sale.

    Had I not purchased one in white I think I would have sprung for this model. Both are simple, classic and styley looking watches.

    The Victory comes with the blue face. Similar style and size but with different markers.

    Both are classy looking watches.

    I was fortunate to pick up silver dial Victory from Ball for just under $700 when they were having their 'MyOffer' auctions in late 2017.

    I bet it would look great in blue.

    I got mine late last year from Jomashop for $595, They had a sale for 695 and I had a $100 coupon so made a good price.

    I did the same last year. I ended up flipping it because the tubes on the hands were not green as advertised in their photo. They were orange and for some reason all those super bright, green hour markers made the orange hands disappear in my eyes.

    Mine are all green except the 12 o'clock marker which is orange.

    Yes, that's what I thought I was going to get. It looks so much better and is easier to read with only the 12 o'clock marker in orange. I'm not sure if there are two versions or what but the orange hour and minutes hand one I had, had to go.
