    Ball (Skin Diver) Down Under

    Sharing pictures of my Ball Engineer Master II Skin Diver. The 40.5 case with 42 ceramic bezel makes for a comfortable fit. Currently sits on 20mm black Isofrane (OEM bracelet stored safely). The Ball brand relatively new to Australia. The watch profile is reminiscent of 1970s style divers IMO. Its very much one of my favourites since purchased in January 2014. Next Ball (yes delighted with quality/price etc) will be a Firemen Storm Chaser DLC Glow (one in stock at local AD)! (marks on bezel in some photos is ‘poor’ cleaning by me) Cheers.

    Yes, IMO particularly on the isofrane. The OEM SS bracelet is relatively light compared to say the Omega Planet Ocean but never the less rubber looks good and sits well.

    Nice collection of divers on that last picture. What's the far back one?

    Welcome and you chose well. I recommend this watch quite often and can highly endorse the combo you have or the Ball bracelet. The watch works with many straps. I have pictures up in the aftermarket strap thread on some sailcloth combos. Enjoy your watch.

    Looks like a Fortis B-42 Official Cosmonauts. Here is mine on bracelet. That Ball is beautiful. Another one for "the list".

    Great looking dial and I'll bet the strap is very comfy too.
