    Here is the first Ball I ever bought....

    Hi all, long time lurker here on WUS. Been more active on PMWF and TZ in the past but I really like the Ball Forum and Dive Watch Forum on WUS so I thought I should start doing some active posting. Anyway, here is a wristshot of a model that I haven't seen anyone talk about yet....
    it's is the Engineer Master II GMT II and was my first Ball purchase. Thought you'd like a shot even if my picture doesn't do justice to the watch. My other Ball the collection is a Hydrocarbon GMT II w/ the fat tubes . I also have a Magnate on order simply because I like the fit and feel of my HC GMT II so much. My mind was made up with Jaymd's posts about his Magnates :thanks. Nice forum, keep up the good work! We all know a great watch company we have here!

    Welcome to the Ball Watch forum. Great choice, as it is one of my favorite GMT's...

    Is that a photoshopped pic, as the lighting looks great on that one.

    Thanks Warren and nope no Photoshopping, just nice diffused natural light. Nice sunny 70 degree day here in Wyoming. I'd better enjoy it while it lasts!

    Welcome, mt_hangglider!

    Thanks for sharing your pic. I don't think I've seen your EMII GMT II at my local AD, either. It's a very handsome piece!

    I hope that you'll visit, often, and hang out with us!
    Take care,
    Geoff

    reading the comfort and fit of the hydrocarbons makes me consider saving up for one. I am going to try on the HC again tomorrow to see how they feel and if they are too heavy at all. I also love the divers clasps on their bracelet unlike the hidden deployant clasps in other ball watch bracelets.

    hi Jaymd,

    I tried on the magnate. Boy did I like it! I didn't want to take it off. it feels much lighter than the hydrocarbon classic but it feels really good. I have a new goal now. forget the fireman ball. Magnate (white dial) it is for me!!!!

    Yep! Thats why i bought two magnates Im sure youll love it although it doesnt have the divers clasp of the other other HCs the push button clasp is more convenient.
