I used to own a number of Ball watches and sold them off over the years. One was a White Trieste. It was the only watch I ever sold that I regretted and now have finally bought back, this time in Black.
The one real negative with Trieste was that Ball used a terrible lume compound on the rubber ring inside the bezel as many of you know. The seller that I bought this from remedied that by luming it with some sort of super high glow compound I think used in gun sights he said. Now it's better than ever...glad to have one back and won't soon let it go again..
