    New Ball and a question

    I recently acquired a NIB Ball Fireman Enterprise at a very nice price. However, I had a question about the clasp - it looks like the Fireman Racer Classic rather than what I typically see online for the Enterprise

    I don't think its a fake; it has tritium gas tubes (bright as hell, wasn't expecting that!) and I opened it up and it has a genuine ETA 2824-2 in it. I think it may be an older model? But i'm not as up on the details of the various Ball model variations, so thought i'd query here.

    It is an older version, but a great watch.

    For the ~ $500 I paid for it it's a phenomenal watch. I'm very impressed.

    Ball offers a lot of bang for the buck. Enjoy the watch and keep an eye out for the ones that give it a good long look, they're most likely watch people too.
