    Im IN LOVE, CAPTIVATED and DESPERATELY WANT and NEED the MAGNATE!

    Dear All, I hope you are well.

    My title says it all........the minute I set eyes on the Hydrocarbon Magnate I melted!!

    Anyone know where I can pick one up at a good price? Anyone unhappy with their magnate want to punish it or give it up for adoption??

    I'm sure everyone here will encourage you to contact your local Ball authorized dealer to obtain one. They can offer you excellent service and of course, Ball's complete warranty protection. You might also find a pre-owned one for sale if you check the sales area regularly. The Magnate is a nice model--are you looking for the black or white dial version? Good luck!

    Thank you for your reply!! My bad, but I forgot to mention I live in the UK, the only stockist here is Selfridges and they have a limited range!

    Yes I adore the magnate, magnificent watch.....I like darker dials so the black dial would be perfect Thanks again!!

    I check the sales forums daily, well actually several times a day, and I do not recall ever seeing a Magnate for sale. I think the owners must be pretty happy with them, and the chances of finding one on the forums is slim, but you never know, it could happen!

    Great choice, and good luck with your search.

    Other UK/European Ball customers, I know, have gone directly to Ball Watch in Switzerland for their purchases....or you could do what other UK buyers have done and telephone an AD in the USA and get one that way. Several UK forum members have done that too. Now, which US dealer to call?? That I will leave to others to suggest. Maybe the guys in the UK can give you a US dealer who will do international sales/shipping??

    - Wears like a dream! I love the HC case for that very reason; heavy watch, very comfortable fit! You can't beat the curvature of the case and lugs.

    Most US Dealers should be willing to ship overseas. Now once you factor in VAT or import customs fees, it may not be feasible to buy out of country. I would try what others have recommended and call Ball Watch Switzerland.

    Your other option is to put a WTB on the various sales forums around, since we do not allow WTB or for sale ads on any of the forums here except the sales corners. Also WTB ads must go in the WTB section of the sales corner FYI..
