    Help finding BALL Hdrocarbon Trieste model

    Hello. I have been bitten by a few of the Ball models but now the one I really think I like seems to be hard to find. Its not that old of a model but is limited from what i can find. I am new to the Ball watch scene and may not be looking in all the right places. Anyone know if this model can still be found. Here is the pic .

    I know there were a few version but the blue hands really stand out. I have not been able to actually handle any of the Ball watches but the pictures look great and the face variation wonderful. It looks like the are a large watches and I have medium size wrist but my other 44mm watches wear well I think. Still reading about the movements but over all seems like a great watch in its price range. I am fairly new to the Automatic wrist watch scene but played with pocket watches many years ago and really enjoy their craftsmanship.

    Thanks .
    Hope to learn alot more about the Ball watches here.

    Not to rain on your parade, but prepare to be looking for a fair while. Already limited in production, the Trieste doesn't resurface very often. I've seen only one or two in the same number of years trolling the Ball forum. Too bad the Orbital II is considered the modern 'successor' (though the similarities are few and far between):

    In other news though, welcome to the Ball forum — tons of great watches to be found and enjoyed here.

    I'm not certain how hard you looked but Jeff Hess's store has this posted:

    This may be New Old Stock. I don't want to post every one some one finds here so this is just an example. If others find one PM the member. If your looking for preowned then I suggest putting a WTB (Want To Buy) post on several forums sales corners (these never go in the general forum, but I'm allowing this a little bit). You might look to Chrono24 site (there is a black one in Spain on there), or other similar sites.

    Dang, if that's actual available stock, I am happy to eat my words.

    Yes, Jeff has the exact one the OP is looking for brand new. If he's serious then this should be his.

    There is a Ball AD in San Jose ( near the huge Asia market) that had a black one when I was out a month ago.

    If you like the blue hands and the look of a pocket watch, check out the white Trainmaster Cannonball or Trainmaster 60 Seconds. I love my Cannonball! The blued hands really pop against the enameled dial.

    The other option if having a chronograph is not a big issue is getting the white/silver Spacemaster. I always loved the blued hands on the silver/white dials so I had this one for a while a few years back. This gives the larger EHC dial size that started with the Spacemasters plus the far superior blue lume in the bezel (versus the Gen 1 green).

    That price listed on the above is madness. I have owned the white and now the black one. There were two this week on ebay alone. I bought one. They should be priced sub $2k preowned.
