    White Face Alligator

    Hi Everyone

    Just wanted to say a big thanks to Jeff Hess from Ball. I wrote an e-mail to Ball asking if they had any Alligators left and he went to the trouble of sending me several e-mails answering my questions and tracked down one of the last few in the states! I have sent an e-mail thanking him, but thought you might like to know about the excellent personal customer service from Ball. Being in the UK it is not always easy to get hold of special editions!

    Here are pictures of the Alligator and the Hydrocarbon TMT I already owned!

    Very handsome watch! Ball USA also helped me find a black dial Alligator a few weeks ago--I was amazed but they knew of one US AD who still had one in their store and they were fairly sure it was the last NIB Alligator still in a store. That white dial sure is nice too--I like both dial colors equally!

    Hi David,

    Congratulations on getting your new white Alligator! It looks fabulous alongside your TMT...a beautiful pair!

    Man, looking at both your white Alligator and CalDiver's black one, I can't decide which one I like more. I'm usually a black dial kind of guy...but they both look amazing! I'd be equally delighted with either one!

    Isn't it great to find a watch company whose customer service is every bit as superb as the watches they make? Kudos to Mr. Hess and the Ball Watch Company!
    Take care,
    Geoff

    Chris,

    FYI, it looks like the luminous "pip" fell out of your Alligators bezel. That watch is going to need to go back to Ball to be fixed...

    Re: White Face Alligator

    Thanks for the kind comments guys. It's great to find a forum with such nice people to go with the great watches!

    If I didn't have a black face TMT I would have probably gone for the Black Alligator. But... the white face is unusual, beautiful and the guilloche makes it sparkle. The AR coating gives it an interesting glint in some lights (but still very white in most conditions) and the white face makes the Tritium glow even more!!! The blue hands are just amazing..... I am so glad I got it.

    Love your Alligator CalDiver!
