    New to forum and just ordered my first Ball

    Hey, folks, I'm happy to be joining the ranks of Ball Watch owners. I just placed an order for an Engineer Master II Moon Glow, white face, steel bracelet, locomotive case back.

    I had to make sure the case back had the train because that's part of the allure for me. I understand that Ball started putting a generic RR case back on the Moon Glows, and my AD said Ball USA had just the one white face with train back left if I wanted it. Also, I saw the Moon Glow on the Swiss Ball website one day last week, and then just a couple days later--it's no longer there! Seems like they're discontinuing this model.

    I was torn between this one and the Night Train (what a watch!), but my modest collection doesn't have anything quite as schnazzy as the Moon Glow. How can you beat the retro font on the numbers and the back-lit date? Hopefully the NT won't be discontinued before I can save up for that one!

    Anyway, I'll try to post a few pics when my Moon Glow arrives. Thanks for reading!

    Trivia question of the month:
    The history of the Baselworld Watch and Jewellery Show dates back to what year, when there was established the first Schweizer Mustermesse Basel (MUBA) with a special section devoted to watches and jewellery?

    Ball watch is constantly "upgrading" their watch even for those that is still on the market so it kind of valued service. Hope they replace the "12" on the aviator dial to the legenuary triangular marker.

    It's here! My EMII Moon Glow is on the wrist, and I love it!

    I posted some observations and more photos in the photo album, but here are a couple teasers.
