I'm considering getting a Ball Watch.

Recently visited a Ball AD.

Problem was, there was so much there, that my eyes kinda glazed over.


Doe anyone here have a favorite?

Eric has a few...

I like the designs but MOST are just at 43mm, a tad smaller than I like!

Oh, and welcome to XMT Toecutter!

Those look like some OUTSTANDING choices there TC ! cheers
Kind of hard to pick a favorite to be honest, but any one
of them gets an A+ imho. The Engineer Master II's are
nice and aggressive, while the Fireman Ionosphere Chrono
has a more classic feel. Liking the markers on that one
too !

Here are a few more for you..

Engineer Master II

I have a Fireman II and love it. Not to mention you can probably get out the door with one for $800.00.

Great watch!

I've owned a first gen fireman(VERY sorry i traded it)and currently own a Mad Cow Hydrocarbon.Imo they are WELL worth the msrp and are a great deal second hand.i owned an Omegs Seamaster pro and besides the movement i would put ball equal in fit and finish.i have heard that ball is planning on having its own inhouse calibers in the next few years so now is the time to buy as i'm sure the prices will jump.oh,and the tritium tubes are coooool!!

Don't think you can go wrong with any of your choices. I've owned the Hydrocarbon Diver Chrono as well as the Classic II diver. Fit and finish is excellent. Both of mine were bought second hand and kept excellent, COSC time. The divers that I've owned do wear bigger than their case diameters would suggest (due to the lug design).
