    What do you want to see from Ball in 2019?

    With Ball releasing all these limited run plus the regular lineup, I’m curious what you’d love to see them do. What kinda of watch would you want Ball to make? The Grail Ball?

    I’d love to seem a 45mm GMT with the temperature...a travel watch. Because why not

    Would love to see more midsized options such as 36-38mm as I find most of the ladies options too small for me but the 40 is a bit big. 38mm is a great size for a lot of people. Just my 2¢.

    Dear Watch Santa, my wish list is thus:
    1. Please manufacture watches in sizes of 35mm, 39mm or 43mm to suit ladies and men and offer such sizes in future releases.
    2. Please fire the current designer and employ a new person who has some sense of proportions, colour rendition and artistic talent who has less tacky tastes.
    3. Please make all watches minimum 200m WR.

    No more pre-orders, online "auctions"--return to "customers are real persons" ethics, and renew support for actual brick/mortar ADs.
    Return to the more traditional "railroad" styling for at least a few models.
    Produce date wheel colors that actually match the dial color.
    Produce dial options WITHOUT date windows.

    1. Would also love to see support for ADs. I hate buying watches I can't try on.
    2. Love the look of the Skindiver II, but it's just so big and heavy. How about a 40/41mm Skindiver III in titanium no more than 12mm thick with a micro adjustable clasp? That would be cool.

    Watches with a 40 mm case and under 50mm lug to lug. Also, more T100 tritium tubes and some cleaner designs. Some models are overboard with all the tritium tubes of various colors. It's hard to tell the time on some models.

    Not just a 40mm case (they already have those), but a 40mm bezel. Agreed on the shorter lug to lug. Not sure about the T100. I had one once and, dare I say, it was too bright. I'm GTG with flat T25 tubes.
