    Roadmaster M Archangel

    Wondering if anyone is enthusiastic towards this watch. I've ordered one. I'm fond of the ceramic bezel, in house movement, 80 hour power reserve, and of course the tritium lumes!!! 40mm is great for my smallish wrist as well. Ordered the Blue/Blue version!!!

    Saw it advertised for pre-order. Looks really nice but the turn off for me is that the seconds hand counter weight does not have the double R logo as do all other Ball Watches. To me, that is the feature of a Ball Watch.

    I can live without the RR especially with the 80 hour inhouse movement, tritium lumes, and the ceramic bezel! The movement appears nicely decorated as well. I guess to each their own.

    Not sold on the name. Seems a bit left field based on brand heritage.

    Yes, I noticed it doesn't fit within the Railroad theme. Have you checked out the watch, btw? They apparently want to take their watches in a new direction of adventuring. Also the Vanguard and Starlight have been released in this theme. I like the Archangel because it employs the ceramic bezel and 80 hour reserve.

    Has anyone bought, or not bought, a watch based on its name?! Seems to me that would be about the last thing I would be worried about, assumed it otherwise "ticked all the boxes.

    I personally wouldn't care about the lack of the RR on the seconds hand--my other watches have them, so have that base covered, and honestly, the dial looks a bit more modern and attractive without the usual RR tail--good looking watch overall, to me.

    I agree.

    It does not seem cluttered and looks very stylish and clean, IMHO.

    Post pictures when you get it.

    Nice choice.

    Re: Roadmaster M Archangel

    I can take or leave the RR on the seconds hand tail. I don't think any of the new Roadmaster line have it, but I like them. I also like the name Archangel, but I can't say that would factor into my watch buying. I preordered the M Icebreaker, myself. I thought Icebreaker was a reference to ice breaking ships, but the case back appears to have an ice climber on the back, which is a tad confusing, but not really bothersome to me.
