I think I'd own quite a bit more Balls, and probably many more watches in general (IWC Aquatimer and Tag Carrera come to mind) if they would just make the date window match the dial.
Nothing ruins a great black or blue dial for me like a bright white day/date popping out. Many Ball's have day/dates that stick out to my eye. I just can't unsee it. It's less obtrusive if it's not a big white rectangle at 3. Does this bother anyone else? It can't really be that much more to have Selita or ETA send you the black one in the context of a $500 movement.
