Why is it that Ball insists on making many of their watches with the hour and minute hand tubes almost the same length? This makes it very difficult to determine which hand is which when viewing the watch in pitch darkness.
Most other brands that use Super-LumiNova make the lume on the hour hand about 1/3 to 1/2 the length of the minute hand. Ball watches in the Engineer line seem to have the most watches with this issue. There's been many a Ball watch that I've passed on due to this trend.
Is there some obscure hidden reason why they do this?
