    Thumbs Up Its here!! My new Fireman

    It's finally here! my new Ball Fireman 43mm, orange numerals.

    I really have to thank the members of WUS for all the information, pics, etc that even led me to Ball Watch co. I started my search for a 'real' watch a few months back and after shortlisting a few watches, fell like a brickhouse for the Ball. It has a 'wrist presence' that just does it for me.

    I am very impressed with the weight, the design and workmanship. Even though I have no railroad affinity, I love its heritage and lets not forget the lume!

    I managed to order the watch with both the steel bracelet as well as the gorgous calf leather. Again, the quality of both is simply outstanding.

    It's wonderful to see the manufacturer participate in this forum, really boosts confidence in the brand, and I take every opportunity to sing Ball's praises! Thanks for making this awesome watch.

    Donald

    Looks amazing, I'm a sucker for orange! Congrats.

    I love the stark white hands with blacked out tails, it makes them seem to float on the dial. Super clear and easy to read at a glance.

    Another Ball masterpiece.
