What are everyone's thoughts on the new Roadmaster Icebreaker up for pre-order? It seems to have gotten mixed reviews so far in the comments I've seen here and elsewhere.
To me, it is Ball's best, most complete effort in design in a very long time. It is pretty much the watch I've been waiting on from them for a long time. In terms of the case and bracelet, they took the Roadmaster design and refined it completely. It just flows really well, and has a cool industrial look with sharp, flowing lines.
The dial also is really nicely thought out. It's balanced and simple with a really cool power reserve indicator. And the handset actually feels like it was made to match the overall case/bracelet design! What a concept. Everything seems to have been carefully thought out and designed with purpose.
I know it's just an online render, but l can find very little to quibble with on this one. Perhaps it would be nice to have the in house movement as an option. Only problem is, what color to get?
