    Incoming!

    Never paid too much attention to Balls (insert joke here) but saw a great deal on a local forum for a lightly used 40mm Ohio still under warranty for another year and a half. For whatever reason the bracelet didn't click with me right off the bat. Although very well machined I guess I'm used to chunkier braceletes so I swapped it out for a custom brown leather with a deployant clasp. The positive first impressions - case quality is superb and extremely well built, easily on par with my Speedy. Lots of depth to the dial too....during my smoke break earlier I found myself staring at my wrist for a solid 15 minutes. The negative first impressions - The watch has been on my wrist less than 24 hours and I've already spent a good amount of time looking through the online catalogue. While my wrist loves me, my Mastercard is soon to hate me.
