I look forward to the day when Ball hires a new design engineer and comes up with something truly extraordinary...till then, another ever so slightly re-tinkered iteration of another old and familiar previous model, where the only thing that is new (and odd) is the name ("Submarine Warfare"?)...ho hum...
Yeah agreed, the older offerings especially Trainmaster line was very nice, but the new offerings are meh
I know its considered a crown guard system, but why does the Hydrocarbon Aero GMT have it yet only have a water resistance of 100M?
I see the purpose, but why add such heft to a watch that doesn't need it? I was about to pull the trigger on the preorder of the Aero GMT II in blue, but the specs really turned me off. It's a big watch, and when you compare the Aero to this, there doesnt seem to be that much difference in the cases which begs the question of why there is such a lack of water resistance.
I'd agree that it's a lackluster change to an existing line but with a fancy (different) name. Since I've never owned a Ball, I suppose I cannot complain too much. As a prospective buyer of one, I'm not a huge fan of their marketing.

^^ Probably available just in North America. However, I can't tolerate a watch with the Day and Date at different positions on the dial. Looks odd to me, so I won't be buying this anyway if it was available in my region. A bit disappointed with the design direction of Ball Watch these last few pre-orders. They could have made the 3, 6 and 9 with a smaller orange tritium tube and it would balance up in the dark.
I like this watch, but have to agree that the positioning of the date window is goofy. I would prefer 3:00, right next to the day.
I do not see the need for constant new designs. I would prefer a well-thought out design that remains consistent, thus increasing the likelihood that parts will still be made if/when repairs are needed.
Another ruined watch by putting date between 4 and 5 and day separately
I like that it’s titanium. That’s all I like.
