    Ball USA! What are you trying to do to me?!

    First, you get me so hooked on the brand that I'm only buying Balls now.

    Then I find a new AD has opened next to my neighborhood, in the countryside outside of town instead of the mall where ADs belong! It's like opening a liquor store next to an alcoholic.

    Now I see that this AD is building the first dedicated Ball showcase/showroom in the US. What are you trying to do to me?!

    Seriously, I look forward to meeting Jeff and whoever else shows up when the museum tour comes through next month. I'm anxiously waiting to see the Night Train in person before I decide between black and white versions.

    Amen Rob! Hi--my name is Chris and I'm a Ball watch addict. Someone stop me before I watch shop again (this week)!!

    Hey, Rob, at least your new AD won't be open 24hrs(It won't, right? ). Can you imagine, if it was? Man, you could be buying Ball watches in your pajamas, while you're waiting for your late night Hungry Man tv dinner to finish zapping in the microwave! Hey, wait a sec...that could be a GOOD THING!


    Seriously though, Rob, you are indeed a lucky Ball watch fan!
    Take care,
    Geoff

    Hi Chris,

    Just wait for when our Night Trains arrive at our AD. If we can coordinate our schedules and meet there that Saturday, we can hang around and check out what other cool Balls are in...and I'll see what other Ball model I can get you to buy!

    Take care,
    Geoff

    You guys can start your own local support group!! The first step is admitting you have a problem...

    Mrs Obie, you are as wise as Mr Obie, himself(if not wiser! ).

    If it's okay, I'll start--

    Hi. My name is Sukispop, and I'm a watch addict. I am here to admit, in front of all of you, that I have a problem. The problem that I have is--
















    --that I don't have enough money to buy all the Ball watches that I love and want!

    ok...next?

    LOL, you are caught Geoff! It is a good thing that a Ball AD doesn't build next to me, I would be selling plasma and...<gasp> do I say it??? ZIPPOS!

    Love that Night Train!

    Cheers,
    Griff

    GRIFF! Welcome to the new official Ball Watch Company Forum! It's great to have you here!

    I know what you mean. If they were to build an AD right next to my neighborhood, like they're doing in Rob's, I'd be selling plasma...my wife's shoes...our cat...your Zippos...nail clippings....almost anything for my Ball watch fund!

    C'mon, Griff...Night Train...you know you want it!
    Take care,
    Geoff

    My Grand Seiko's position in the collection has become tenuous. I don't think it wants me to go to the museum tour.

    Rob,

    As a fellow Richmonder, I would be interested in more details!! Where is this new AD? Feel free to send me a PM if that's more appropriate.
