    It is nice and kind of a different look for Ball.

    Huh... They must have hired some new people in design. This is truly something different. There's hope for this company!

    Couple things that tell me some new eyes are working there -
    - they made everything fit into a 40mm case (OMG!)
    - they didn't do that horrible split day and date display crap. They probably had to design new wheels instead of forcing ones from other models into the space.
    - the integration of the tubes into the large numerals is their best execution yet. Hopefully they look as seamless in reality as they do in the render.
    - the handset is great
    - while I can't tell if that clasp has micro adjustment holes (hope it does), at least it's a folder and not the damn butterfly
    I'm kinda stunned....

    I'm still in disbelief and can't stop looking at it. With only 2000 being made, this could be the first Ball that doesn't depreciate.

    Ball, for me, has always had at least one goofy thing or penny pinching compromise that ruins a potentially great watch. But this design and layout are so clear and clean.

    A watch with these materials and technical specs from omega would be 8k. I'd like to know a lot more about the development of this. It looks like they're making a statement so someone should get on camera and talk about it.

    Dealers should be furious they're not getting this.

    Congrats fellas for pulling the trigger guys. It looks like a nice watch and I wish I am in a position to buy this but at USD$2,495 is just too much for me as the USD to AUD exchange rate is really bad. Add government taxes, import duties and the watch is well over AUD$4,000 for me.

    Wanted to say that the quick set GMT time using the push buttons is a very good idea and I wished some of the other main stream brands do it too. I am a little disappointed that the Hydrocarbon AeroGMT I got last year doesn't have this feature.

    It’s actually $2895! I asked :( I’m in the same boat
