    Finally - Proud Ball Owner

    Went by my AD today, they had pretty much every model in stock. I had my heart set on an Aviator, but it was way too big for my small wrist, my next choice was either a Night Train or Fireman 43mm, both of which are still pretty big for me, but I didn't want to go much smaller. After comparing both multiple times, the Fireman won me over, I just kept going back to it all the time. It's amazing how much better in person these watches appear! I'm extremly happy to finally have a Ball, it is a great early Christmas present for myself

    Anyway, here are the pics, please excuse my poor photography skills...

    Trivia question of the month:
    The history of the Baselworld Watch and Jewellery Show dates back to what year, when there was established the first Schweizer Mustermesse Basel (MUBA) with a special section devoted to watches and jewellery?
