    Thinking about a third Ball

    I contemplated a mechanical watch for years and never could commit the funds for one. Last year I caught the Engineer Master Diver II World Time on preorder.


    I waited months and have really enjoyed the watch.

    Later I was browsing here on WUS and I found a great used Hydrocarbon AeroGMT.

    Iím thinking about one more. I enjoy the rugged style and lume on the Ball watch. This didnít have the steel band and Iíve experimented with NATO straps.


    Now Iím thinking about one more of I can find the right deal.
    1. Fireman NECC
    2. Fireman Stormchaser Pro
    3. Engineer Master II Diver Freefall
    4. Engineer Master II Diver GMT
    5. Engineer Master II Aviator Dual Time
    6. Hydrocarbon line (starts pushing my preferred budget).

    Any thoughts, pros/cons, leads on a good deal new/used?

    Thanks

    Those 6 watches you listed are all good. Like you, I am attracted to Ball Watches for the chunky and rugged look. I am searching for an Engineer hydrocarbon NEDU as a second Ball Watch.

    Several of your choices overlap with what you already have--I would go for the Aviator GMT since clearly you like access to world time in one fashion or another--the Aviator would be a whole different case and dial type--or for something either further afield, I would check out the Fireman Night Train.

    NEDU looks great, probably out of my price range.

    No wrong choice here, just what you like the best.

    The Engineers are my favorites, but that GMT above is pretty sweet as well.

    Okay, so we're all in agreement that we're just going to pretend that there's not a really good joke waiting to be told about the title of this thread?

    Kind of adding insult to injury, no? Over the years I've learned to ignore such feeble attempts at bathroom humor and just moved along to the business at hand.

    Saw a couple black NECC new under $1100!





    Very tempting. Have half that saved up in rewards points.
