    COOL! Another model I had not seen before...

    Just came across this one:



    I love the way the faux-subdial on the right balances the entire layout. WELL DONE! Kind of reminds me of this one:



    What do you guys think of it?

    I was very excited about the Moonlight Special when Ball first announced its release. There are so many things I like about it: chronograph, moonphase, day of the month on the outer ring of the face. I went to see it in person and liked it, but -- to my surprise -- I much preferred the Trieste in person.

    The whole feel of the Trieste was just much better IMO. The bracelet on the Trieste was nicer, and the lume (with tubes on the chronograph hands) of the Trieste was also superior.

    Alas, I was only window shopping.

    Still love the Moonlight Special though. Gorgeously complicated piece.

    Yes it is a beauty but then again this model has been out for several months now and we have sold quite a few of them of them. Many very cool complications but I must note that that with all the compications on this beauty it does make it a little difficult to set them all up properly.

    I agree with the white dial. When I saw it online at release, the white dial was the one I lusted for. The AD only had the black dial... along with the black dial Trieste. If I'm buying, it's the white (or silver) dial. With all the detail, it's much easier to read.

    Not that bad to set-up actually. The moon phase is probably the most difficult thing...

    Dial color is all individual choices. I can read dark dials more readly outside then I can white or silver dials. The Moonlight Special is a classy timepiece, make a great addition to anyones collection.

    Many times, the web photos do not do justice to a particular model. I can tell you when I saw the EM II Diver GMT in photos, no big deal. However, when I first put hands on it in Las Vegas, what a difference and change of opinion.

    Get Some Balls!!!

    This is just a standard Valjoux 7751. It is not hard to set once you learn how to do it--even the moonphase is pretty straightforward. Looks great with the silver dial!
