    Picture New Hydrocarbon has arrived!!!

    My Hydrocarbon Diver Arrived today from Preppyboy in the Phillipines. I could not speak more highly of his efficiency in getting me this watch. Preppyboy rocks. This watch is very high quality. I cant help but compare it to a submariner in wow factor. Those extra wide tubes look great. I will have to remove a few links to take some wrist shots. This thing appears to be made for a 9" wrist. Enjoy the shots.

    Great watch Chris!
    Big congrats!
    Just to clarify, you're meaning the bracelet would fit Godzilla right, not the watch itself seems huge?

    Hi Chris,

    Congrats on your new HC Classic II! That's one of my favorites in that line. I love those extra wide tubes...now if only Ball would spec those as T100 x-wides!

    Hi John,

    I'm guessing that Chris means the bracelet fitting brawny wrists...? The HC Classic has a diameter of 40mm, not including the crown, though it probably wears big, what with that unique, built up crown guard...
    Take care,
    Geoff

    Yeah I didn't think it was overly huge but didn't recall the specs.
    Heck of a watch for the money.

    Sorry I left out "wrists". It is actually a bit smaller than I had hoped for but it is a very substantial piece regardless. The buckle on this thing is twice as thick as any watch I have ever handled.
    Thanks

    I have more pics now that I removed some links. I tried to show the thickness of the clasp on the bracelet. My pictures don't show it as well as I hoped it would. This thing is solid.
    Thanks

    Awesome! Love the wide tubes -- wouldn't mind adding one to the stable, looks diferent enough from my Mad Cow to justify it...like I need help to justify a new watch!

    Does your crown guard flip open when you bend your wrist back as far as it'll go ? Mine does, other than that it's an awsome Ball.
