I'm new to the forum and also, due to the tremendously well-placed benevolence of my fiance, the proud new owner of a new Cannonball. I've been a huge fan of Ball for some time, but this is my first Ball timepiece. I must say, it certainly won't be my last as I like it so much I'm right back into the market for a new casual/sport watch. The Mad Cow and Hydrocarbon GMT both have my eye right now.
In any case, I've really enjoyed following many of these discussion threads and now look forward to participating myself. Attached are a few pics of my new Cannonball with ss bracelet and black face (with Diamondhead and Waikiki in the back).
Sorry for the lame photography, it really is much sharper in person.
