    New to Ball, super impressed

    I just picked up the Roadmaster Challenger 18 in 40mm that was never worn or sized.

    I read all I could about the brand and had a few thoughts as I read complaints on quality and distribution as I was making my decision.

    I am glad I went on my gut and got it.





    The 40mm wears well on my 7 1/2 wrist

    Itís a great looking watch. I am glad you did your research and made up your own mind.

    Ball makes some great watches and you definitely picked up a beautiful piece. Besides, it looks good on your wrist too

    Wear it in good health

    Thanks for the kind words you two. It is running +4 so far today. Hopefully it runs in better

    So my +4 seconds has extended to +10. I reset this morning and this evening itís way off.

    Having a new chronometer and it not keeping time really messes with my head!

    Hopefully Ball will adjust it.

    Itís under warranty so do call your AD and bring it in. I have an Engineer Hydrocarbon AeroGMT II and it is the most accurate watch I have. Gains approximately 10 seconds in a whole month!

    It sounds like you got it magnetized somehow--before sending it off, check for that (see elsewhere here for how to do that if you aren't sure).

    Thanks, I will try that. Otherwise there is an authorized service center in Chicago which is an hour drive
