Yes, Steve, you are crazy, but we all are here.
IIRC, there are a couple Deep Blue owners here, but eventually, the trade comes down to you. Both are nice pieces, in my opinion.

JAW just bought and return one. Send him a PM and ask him about it. If you like the watch better than the Ball...I say go for it! Have you ever looked at the Wilson Watch Works 2000M? I believe that it is around the same price or cheaper...I actually like that version of the 2000m models.

Only you can determine if its crazy or not. There's no sense keeping something you are willing to part with-no matter the name on the dial. BTW the WWW diver is a limited edition of 50- long sold out, the only way to get one would be used.

Yep...I know that, but it is still my favorite. You don't see them too often, but I still think that they are the best of those 2000m divers that has come out! Very cool looking!!!

Not Quite Correct - I ABSOLUTELY LOVE my Dive Master 2K
I returned a Daynight Ops

BUT - I would NOT sell a Ball for a Deep Blue, not even a Master 2k

No Problemo.

Honestly though...if the Ball isn't speaking to you anymore - Let it Go.

The M2K is a very solid watch - well built (even with the common China case - doesn't bother me)
What you'll hear the most is how crazy accurate the base 2824 is - and it IS CRAZY ACCURATE.
They must be adjusting them - cause it just shouldn't be that way.

I've posted a lot on my Deep Blue M2k here:

I have a DeepBlue Master 2000. It is an awesome watch. I LOVE IT. One of my favorites of 40 plus watches. Such a classic design and case. Has a nice heft and weight to the watch. Solidly built, smooth movement. Love the all brushed bracelet. Great screw down crown. All around a great watch. I don't have anything bad to say about it.

Got this pick of my version of the DeepBlue site.

Keep the ball.At least you know who makes it and its a respected swiss brand.Thats something that matters to me.
the deep blue uses the fullswing case as does every other company that pushing it.I don't like the name deep blue so I
don't buy them.If thats what you want,buy it.But its not up to the quality of a ball watch.Once you own the name brands,
these will only disappoint.Most will buy them and flip them on the forums within 6 months.need a massive dive watch
thats original,swiss made and under deep blues price? buy a zeno basel 500m diver.

. . . I do not own either of them, but I cannot imagine giving up the heritage and history of a Ball for a current "hot at the moment" dive watch. No ill thoughts towards the DB . . .

. . . owning both would be another matter, but not giving one up for the other.

"Leave the gun, take the cannois"

Actually I mean keep the Ball and get the Deep Blue also even if you have to wait a while.

I love my Deep Blue but one on one wouldnt sell a Ball Fireman to get one.
