    Let me share a secret with you... it's USD$2,495 for me in Oz. Are you in NZ?

    Wow, patronising

    I know, I contacted ball with why that price was different to this pic



    And I got this reply

    “The special pre-order price for Australia the COSC movement with the stainless steel bracelet is US$2875. (15 % VAT and shipping charge are included. This special offer ends on 17 July.”

    This came up on Facebook this morning and I did a double-take.

    I just bought the Tudor GMT about a month or two ago, if I hadn't i'd be all over this. Stunning.

    Looks great overall!

    But wouldn't it be far more useful to quick-set the hour hand? Why would you need to quick-set the home time?
    Cheers,
    Greg

    For some reason no one other than rolex succeeded in a pepsi ceramic bezel. Maybe it is difficult and costly maybe rolex patented it. So if you insist on a ceramic rolex style pepsi then you may need to wait for another 10 years.

    This Ball watch is awesome, still a bit bulky and busy but the company is heading to the right direction in terms of design. The quality of Ball on the other hand is amazing, at least equal to Longines and Tag Heuer IMO.

    Interesting that the discount as compared to retail isn't as great as on previous preorders. They must think this one is going to sell really well.

    I absolutely agree here. I don't want to spoil the party but do you actually change the GMT hand all that often?

    I love the colors but I'm not seeing the usefulness of the quick-set and I've always been a hater of the day complication. It just busies up the face IHMO.

    But, I hope they sell them out and move on to a GMT w/alarm. That's the one I would jump on. (NOT starting a rumor here - I don't think there is such a watch in the pipeline. Just my dream.)

    As much as it is out of my current price league, very tempting non-the-less! Congrats to those that are in.
