    My first Ball purchase, and I am stoked!

    Hi,

    First post here, first Ball watch!

    I wasn't actually in the market for a new watch but came across an AD in the UK, who had one Night Train DLC in stock on their website. The price seemed very favourable and as impulse purchases go, this was one of the quickest.

    I am really, really impressed by the piece itself, and the warranty has been registered so I'm all set.

    This could be the bargain of the year, and I'm looking forward to learning more about the Ball range over time, as unless I'm mistaken they aren't massively popular in the UK

    Welcome and Congratulations! They are of exceptional build quality and are well engineered.

    I've got two so far and have been eyeing number three.

    Congratulations! For me, Ball watches are a real value--well built, competitively priced, tritium lume, wide range of options. I have three and love them all--Trainmaster Power Reserve and World Time, Engineer II Red Label GMT.

    Nice watch and welcome to the forum.
    A tritium lume shot would be appreciated.
