FINALLY! I plan on making my first expensive watch purchase. Up until now, everything I've had is <$500.
I've always liked Ball for their use of tritium tubes and after shopping around, the DeepQuest has really caught my eye.
I found a local AD in Chinatown (NY, NY) who had a customer's DeepQuest that I was able to look at.
Compared it to a few other watches and I just fell in love with it.
The guy was also able to offer me a surprisingly good price (I was expecting it to cost much closer to MSRP).
Is openly talking about prices "taboo" here? If not, I'll say what I was offered and you guys can tell me if it was good.
I'll probably end up getting the watch in July, after I get a few more paychecks from my new job :D
Until then, it'll be constant research for me, to make sure I get what I want.
Is there anything I should be worried about?
Does anyone have good pictures of the silver dial version? I've only seen the black dial.
It seems like Ball is reasonable about swapping tritium tubes in the future. Am I right?
Also, any other suggestions? I'd prefer to stick to Ball for their use of tritium but im open to all options. I've already looked at Tag, Omega and Breitling online. Not very interested in those as of right now.
