    Gentlemen, I am officially a Ball man!

    I just purchased my first Ball from a fine gentleman here on the forum. It came all the way from the UK. I love all sorts of watches, but for my first Ball I wanted something simple. I purchased this Fireman at a great price. It included the box and bracelet. I added this Hirsch Grand Duke and I feel like it was a great pic. Feast your eyes.

    Simple but beautiful. Love the strap too - perfect combo.

    Very nice pick up! It won't be your last Ball, of that I can assure you once you've seen and handled the quality!

    Congrats, the brown is actually pretty rare. The 43mm Fireman II is a favorite of mine. I've had my B&O Fireman since they first came out.

    I love the Fireman! (And, for a useless cultural footnote, they call it the "Stockman" in Japan--both of course referring to the guy that keeps the fire going in the train engine...) I have the same model, with red accents--enjoy, and wear it in good health!!

    Very interesting. I always like to have a fun fact available.

    Yes, if you stare at the case back long enough, you will see one train coming towards you one the left, while on the right, one engine heading away, with a "fireman/stockman" in the center feeding the fire, next to stacked coal (?) on the right. The lower right shows the roof of the next car...
