What do you guys think? This is a limited edition of only 200 pieces, available at Gnomon. Pic and link, below.
I just had an impulse buy and ordered this. I think I was so enamored of the look of the GMT they just finished pre-orders on, that I made up my mind I HAD to add a Ball to the stable at some point. The good news...I've been itching BAD to order a new Sinn 103 ST SA...but this swooped in and saved my watch budget for the year and a half.
I'm into dive watches and I'm a lume weirdo. Considering I have no divers in my collection with tritium or a red bezel, I thought I'd roll the dice on this.
There are a few things that put me off a bit. I'm not in love with the hands (yet). I'm not 100% sure I'll like a red bezel. And I'm 50/50 on whether the dial's too busy for my simple tastes.
It'll be my first Ball watch, though I've long admired a number of their pieces. I've handled quite a few from their collection, but I try to keep my purchases limited to $1K (or close to it) and I prefer to max out the L2L at 48mm where possible, so those factors had largely been a barrier to my entry into the Ball world.
My wrist is somewhere between around 6.75", so this is one of the few (maybe the only?) Ball divers that will fit nicely. It's 40mm X 48mm.
I'll try to do an unboxing post when I receive it.
