    History Guide of Model Releases with Photos?

    Hi everyone.

    As I'm researching Ball watches for purchase, I notice that it's very hard to find out when an actual model/version was released by Ball.

    Also, searching for a model name via Google images/this forum will bring up many very similar watches, all under the same name - some reviewed at different times over the years.

    I'm more inclined to purchase a new watch with tritium tubes that was released in the last couple of years.

    Is there a way to find out when each of the models were released? A history of release with photos?

    Even on the Ball website, I can't find this information.

    I'd like to give an example from the Ball website:

    Welcome to BALL Watch - Aviator

    Engineer Master IIAviator
    NM1080C-S14A-BK

    I had assumed earlier that watches which were displayed prominently like this were this years models, but I understand that's not true.

    At the very least, does anyone have any information on the actual release of this model above as I've been looking at it closely? Thank you in advance.

    Maybe I am looking in the wrong places but my searches on Ball Watches turned up nothing much when I first got serious into buying Ball Watches. A Ball wiki page or something similar with the collective expertise of every Ball owner is the way to go. For your case, rather than providing an example like you did above, could you name a specific model that you are interested in and someone might be able to contribute more constructively?

    I did find this very cool PDF just now searching for Ball catalogs. I haven't seen this before but it's over 200 pages. It does seem a few years old however.

    Ahh found a bit more on Toppers site

    Another edit: Here's the 2016-2017 giant catalog too

    DONE!!!

    Thanks so much! Right there on page 9. 2017 model - exactly what I was trying to double check.

    And it was just out in one of the most obvious places! Thanks for doing that legwork, I appreciate it.
