    You don't see these ones very often. One just sold on Ebay too. I found this one by chance.

    Sorry Groundhog - when I was keying out this post, I forgot your screen name. But I did give credit to another WUS member at least.

    But this Ball has me mesmerized! I'm typically a fan of Glycine.....I like their large dial and the 12-on-top option. But this Ball just looks tough....in a very classy way. It looks slightly 'over-engineered' without being 'bulky' or chunky. It appears a little thicker than Glycine as well and the watch face isn't overly busy.

    What was the last year of production for this Ball???

    Thanks!

    I wish I had the info on this watch that you look for but........alas, I have none. Keep your eye on Ebay and keep searching the dealers. Someone has to have a new one around. It's a fairly heavy watch but the case is so smooth around the edges and so is the bracelet you hardly know it's there. Looks pretty cool at night too.

    Hmmm....

    Thanks for the new pic, groundhog!

    I don't mean to knock your watch - I love it - but ya think that Ball's high standards for quality would mandate that the inside of the '9' at 0900 and 1900 hrs would not be just filled in/smeared over with the actual number paint. Ya think that they'd have that 'void' matching the black of the dial?
