    I'm a newbie and have been looking for a basic style military watch and I love the fireman night train, i'm completely sold...except the nearest AD is about 250 miles away from me, can anyone reconmend a way to get a hold of one other than me making the 4 hour journey? Also how much do they run for? I dont seem them on the official Ball website either?

    Thanks for your time,

    Hi Jack
    Where in upstate NY are you? I'm in Niagara Falls and the nearest AD to me is in Olean.

    Ithaca, which is about 1 hour/30 min south of Syracuse.

    I looked on the official Ball site and Olean was the closest to me as well...

    JSonn--do what I do and conduct your business with a US AD by phone and have them send you the watch. Works fine as long as you are OK with not trying it on first. In that case though, the AD might take it back in exchange for another watch if it just does not fit/please you.

    good advice, never thought of that...how much do the night trains go for? and why no wrist shots of anybody wearing them? all i've seen are the "prototypes"?

    I don't think the preorders have arrived yet. But once they do, you'll see plenty of wrist shots

    The Night Train is not yet available in the US, but will be delivered to those who pre-ordered next week. The MSRP is approx US$1500-$1600 dependent on what band/strap you choose to get it with. Lots of "I got my Night Train!" threads should appear in next few days.

    Hang on to your hat. Call and AD and get one. only 100 coming in. They should be sent to AD's by monday or Tuesday. One AD is up to 17. One is at ten. Several are ordering 2 or more.

    This sounds like hype, but really, if you want one get your relationship with your AD in order.

    No kidding, No hype.

    Re: how can I get a hold of a Night Train?

    wow, well I feel like an idiot, for some reason I thought they released them already? So what did most of you fellows do, call around to local AD's to find if they were getting any in? What is the official date for the rest to be launched, and why is there no word on the Ball website of them?

    Cheers to you guys who will be getting them soon

    Thanks
