    Who else finds this one interesting?



    Those tiny blued hands must look AMAZING in the "flesh/steel".

    Anyone have first hand experience?

    It's a great-looking watch with nice depth. It's also one of the favorites of a member of our board!

    Cheers,

    It is even more beautiful in person. A local attorney bought one when the Museum Tour hit Richmond last year. Every time I see him, he's wearing it!

    It's a perfect dress watch that still works for casual wear.

    i love the dial but am not a fan of the bracelet. i'd get it on leather or croc, makes for a dressier watch.

    too bad that the second time zone is marked "elapsed time"


    How did this watch make it through production without anyone getting a "here's your sign" award?

    Hey! That's my watch! Actually, a photo of it. I have the exact same piece, and love it. Congrats on a fine selection. Also wondered why the second time zone was referred to as 'elapsed time" Didn't deter me from buying it though.

    The dial's relieved area with the scroll work does some interesting things when the light shifts position on it. And the glow in the dark is almost enough to read by.

    This is an elegant looking watch and I especially like the guilloche-like pattern on the dial. However, is it just me or is the date window looking like it's set too close to the Ball logo right underneath it? Hard to judge from one pic, but very pretty in spite of that.

    Ah, thank you for defining in words a description of the relieved area on the watch.

    Comments:

    The Tritium tubes provide quite a bit of light. Also in the Elapsed Time dial, they provide an interesting effect with full dial lighting. Quite impressive in the dark.

    The date window and Ball logo are close. However, the proximity is offset by the framework around the window. Seems to work well in person.

    Time accuracy is very immpresive. I have had the watch for several weeks and by estimate it has lost approximately 30 seconds, if that. This is based on time originally set with my cell phone, and monitored from same.
