Geoff (sukispop) and his wife Karen met me in San Francisco yesterday at Andy Jewelers on a gorgeous Autumn day to meet Ball's National Sales Manager Marc Ofte, view the "travelling show" and engage in plenty of spirited "watch talk". The store manager Rich Neciuk, had some nice Ball watches to check out and drool over and we tried on most everything. Marc is most knowledgeable, very engaging and full of interesting Ball watch history. If the tour is coming to an AD near you, try and visit. A few photos follow to document the day........
