    Ball Magneto S anyone?

    Just wondering if anyone is buying the Magneto S? I saw it today and it looks pretty good. The inner bezel numbers light up with regular lame and overall looks solid.

    Any thoughts guys?

    Saw it as well but was a bit underwhelmed by it. Feel that the dial was a bit too matt vs the super shiny bezel

    Absolutely not--hate the fluted bezel, don't need minute markers when there are no hour markers, the usual white date wheel with a black dial, redundant, repetitive.....

    My buddy has one coming and I will get a wrist shot from him and post when it arrives. Not a big fan of the fluted bezel either, but overall it looks like a nice watch.

    I have been following this watch since announced and want to see it in person. I would prefer the watch to have a closed case back instead of the diagram.

    The small window on the crown side of the case inducates whether the case back iris diaphram is open or closed, by using a cover indicator. I dont care for the system and prefer a closed case back.
