    Ok so the time has come. Drumrolllllllll!.......but first a story. So I have admired Ball watches for quite some time. I picked up a Fireman Stormchaser Pro and enjoyed it for awhile when I came across the NECC. I have served at an NECC command and am closing in on retirement in a few years. I found one on here up for trade and traded my Stormchaser for it even up. Iíve also been into Sinn pieces for awhile and want to own one someday but donít have the cash right now. I particularly like the tegimented look. So I got to thinking why not have my NECC finished in a similar manner? So I researched and found John at IWW (International Watch Works) who bead blasted the bracelet and case. Here are the results:

    Looks nice! That is a white dial, is it not? I love that NECC, and want one...but occasionally I see some descriptions saying it is silver.

    White for sure. Has a pearl to it, but definitely white.
