    Finally chased it down. Again.....

    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..

    Glad you tracked it down again. It looks like it has a lot of wrist presence. Congrats on catching your Ball!

    The blue in the bezel looks unique and adds more to the watch I think than the standard green version.... Maybe just because it looks different, but the change looks like a professional job...
