Finally got some Balls...or at least one!

This Ball Engineer Master II Voyager is the first time I pre ordered a watch. I have been very intrigued by the Ball brand since I have been educated on the better quality Swiss watches. For some reason this model really caught my eye and I was able to order it as a very nice birthday gift to me. I like the second time zone feature, the easy to read big date, and they have also placed micro gas tubes on every minute marker which makes for an awesome lume! I was able to get #94 out of a limited edition of 1000, for the year that I was married to Mrs. horn_doc. That helped with my sales job for the permission to spend more than I have ever spent on a watch before!

That's very cool looking, I really like the way the tubes on the hands add a 3-D / forged appearance to them. Happy Birthday!

Well done. Absolutely. That's really, really sweet. And I understand the pre-order prices offered a really eye-popping discount. Smart cookie!

Yes I think it was a little more than half price of their suggested post production retail price. It was a bit anti climatic when it arrived after a few month wait but I'm very happy with my purchase.

I have always found that the lume of tritium tubes looks better in person,and after the eye has adjusted to the dark , than in pics. I could never get a good pic of tritium.

Tritium has a sharp crisp lume that doesn't fade and is quite impressive but not the neon like lume that many profess.

SuperLuminova ,et al, looks great on a full charge but even the best lose a lot with time.

I like balls.
