All right, so I've been ogling Balls for a few years now (ouch!) and have been drooling at the pics on this forum for a few weeks. Well, I finally decided to do something about that and bought myself a Hydrocarbon Classic II. All I can say right now is that I'm very happy I did so. This is a fantastic watch that just looks like it BELONGS on my 7" wrist. The 40mm case size is a pleasant change from some of the other behemoths being released these days. The Hydrocarbon has a ton of presence without overpowering the wrist. I'm sure I'll be adding another Ball to my collection in the not too distant future!
Some quick 'n dirties for now:
