Thanks so much in advance for input. I am relatively new to this forum but find it a great community and resource. I am a big fan of Ball Watches and feel that they are seriously underrated. I owned a Engineer II Chronometer but ended up selling it and I somewhat regret it. I have even looked at re-buying this model.
But here is my question. I have noticed that prices for Ball watches seem to be going down. I just got an alert from one online seller that they are selling an Engineer Magneto for a hot price, about half what they were retailing for a few months ago. i have seen other engineer ii's listed for these same kinds of discounts. I also know that my local AD recently stopped selling Ball watches. (I have read some other posts about how Ball is changing some of its AD relationships and this may just be a result of that).
Before I consider buying one, is there something I should know about why the prices appear to be dropping so much?
Ball is a great company with a great heritage selling quality products but I just wasn't sure what was causing this market change in pricing. I thought some of these watches were a bargain before but at these lower prices they are really a steal. I just want to make sure there isn't something i dont know like if there are certain models, years that had quality issues. I also understand it could be as simple as they are discontinuing old models and closing them out.
Any feedback would be appreciated.
