    Having difficulties deciding which Ball to get =/

    Hi Ballers ! Just registered on this forum as I'm same with all of you, just can't keep my eyes of the Balls !
    That's my I've decided my first swiss watch would be a Ball, perhaps the second and the third and so on...
    But here's the problem, I having dilemma in choosing my first Ball Watch, and i have 2 in mind now,

    1) Ball Engineer Master II Diver Worldtime
    2) Ball Fireman Storm Chaser DLC Glow

    Any opinions guys ?

    Both of them excellent choices, in fact I've them both. The one that gets my wrist time is the Worldtime. It is truly unique complication with true world time plus day, date. The lume are unique as well, with applied tubes on surface like most other Balls, but also backlit on the minute marks of diver bezel. I've the tricolor storm Chaser DLC, its rare, but it does NOT compare to the Worldtime in my opinion.

    Also maybe the fact that Worldtime was my first Ball had something to do with my extra fondness for it.

    I agree with this above....the Worldtime is very special.

    Yeah perhaps you're right, i think part of the reason i wanted the Storm Chaser DLC Glow is because it's rare. I saw one the other day, 460/1999. I was quite eager of getting the DLC Glow first as its already discontinued and i dont think i can find a new one around anymore.

    There is really no point in all previous discussions, as it lacks pics.

    So this post is where the real discussions starts. :)

    I believe the WT diver is listed as discontinued on the new price list (actually it is not even listed). I think there is still a supply of both but I would not delay too much.

    ten13th, I will trade you my Aviator GMT and my first born for your white dial World Time. Oh, she is a beauty!! By far, my favorite Ball watch (or any brand). Elegant, yet "tactical" in a way, with it's rubber "leather" waterproof strap, inner dive bezel, and of course , the world time bezel. The black is very nice, but the white really pops. Too bad the white dial only comes up for sale about once a year, and always at the most inopportune time!

    Hi Poodey. We have similar taste. Already have the items you offered up as trade bait. LOL
