I’m trying to do something that I thought wouldn’t be much of a problem. I’m trying to find out the production years for a particular watch. I tried every way I know how including every type of internet search syntax and phrasing I’m capable of mustering and yet I can not find the answer.
Sometimes when you purchase a watch you find out that the watch was manufactured years earlier even though technically the watch is brand new.
So, I’m trying to find out what years the “BALL Engineer Hydrocarbon Airborne Chronometer” started and ended production. Even though the watch is great looking and it has a warranty I’d still like to know what year it started production and what year it ended production. I don’t think I’m being picky here and some people may have encountered the same problem. If I had the watch in my hand and could read the serial and model number this wouldn’t be a problem.
After some looking around on the internet the common consensus is that the production year started in 2013 but I’ve been unable to figure out the ending date. I even looked at the Ball Watch website to no avail. I could make some phone calls and I may have to. I will ask the seller for this information if it’s available but I’d still like to know for the future. It does affect the value of the watch.
Does anyone know of a way, or website, where I could find out production run dates of contemporary or relatively new watches. Because when you’re looking at watches it would be real nice to know how old the “NEW” watch your looking at really is.
Maybe I’m missing something here or maybe I’m just a knucklehead.
Thanks in advance, jefred AKA Dennis
