    Next pre-order from Ball (page was only up temporarily)

    Last night I refreshed the pre-orders page to see if there was anything new, and there were three new models, all in 40 and 43mm, and all with four color options (all black, all blue, black with blue bezel, blue with black bezel).


    There was a normal ETA day/date, a M in-house movement, and a TMT movement.


    They seem to have pulled the site down so I thought I'd post the pics since they are still open in my browser :P

    They're still putting the TMT date in the weirdest spot possible, but at least it's not cutting out the marker this time. It's a nice looking sport watch, though.

    Thanks for sharing this peterbee. These new watches look nice, not too hot about the date at the 1 o'clock position but will definitely consider the traditional 3 o'clock one. At least the tritium tubes lume was not displaced by the date.

    However what I found a little disappointed was not to see a double R (RR) on the seconds hand counter balance which is a nice feature on many of the Ball Watches. And one of the reasons I would buy a Ball Watch. Other reason is good WR rating but the current crop of pre-orders have only a 100m (or less) WR which is a bummer

    All I can say is WOW with this one! This may be the most complete watch I've seen from Ball in a long time. I can't really find much fault in these. Such a balanced design. Tritium in the bezel, and I love the look of that new clasp. Love it!

    3-hander with blue dial looks real nice, some neat details on the minute track.
    I would be interested if they didn't ruin them with the date magnifier.

    Really like the look of the day/date and the date with magnifier. I think the TMT is cool but they ruined it with the date placement. Unfortunately, there are no side pics. Plus, does anybody know the proposed delivery date? Just about the pull the trigger on one of the 40mm versions.

    Thanks

    I believe the delivery is April/May. I'm feeling one of 40mm as well, just can't decide which one I like best.

    Six to eight month delivery window - yikes! Is this normal for the pre-orders? This will be my first.
