    Serial number assistance

    Looking at the following watch: NM1O58D-S4J-WH

    Is there a place to verify the serial number before purchase?

    Serial number given to me by seller is:
    7703017


    Thanks in advance for the assistance.

    For that, I would contact Ball Watch https://www.ballwatch.com/global/en/...r_service.html

    If contacting Ball doesn't work (they, like many companies, often won't do this, especially for undocumented non-owners, simply because that number could then be used to make a counterfeit), there is no archive where you can look the number up, and the number itself does not contain information that could be used to determine date of manufacture.

    Thanks for the replies. I reached out to Ball but have yet to receive a reply. Tricky from the point of a potential buyer looking to verify authenticity of a watch prior to purchase, when and understandably so manufacturers don't want to be taken advantage of and look to protect these numbers.......

    I am afraid Timefleas is correct, but hopefully you will get an answer one way or the other if you are patience.

    Good luck.
