Hello everyone, my name is Greg and I live in Seattle. I had no idea there was a Ball forum till the other day. I wanted to share my first Ball purchase, an Engineer II that I bought from a great seller over on the Rolex Forums. I'm loving this watch! I received it on November 10th and it's gained only 20 seconds. Very impressive for a watch that doesn't have an official COSC certificate. I'm also very pleased with it's construction and finish. The trinium dial markers are a knock out feature. I didn't know the Ball brand had been sold and reintroduced until I saw Gary Sinise wearing one in an episode of "CSI NY" a couple of years ago. It blew me away and I knew right then I had to have one eventually.
I have a tt 1987 Rolex DJ with a TOG bezel that I love very much, but Rolex isn't a brand I can afford to jump into collecting exclusively. Ball is a different story. I'll be able to afford more in the coming years and I'm looking forward to my next one.
