A new Ball and more coming...

Post by biglove » August 31st 2020, 4:14pm

As part of the big reorganization, I got the Marathon TSAR, have a different Ball en route as well as a Sinn 556A-RS.

The Ball Marvelight LE won’t be here until Nov-Dec, got #52/1000 of the “Caring Edition.” The Sinn should arrive in September.

Have long looked at the Ball Skindiver series but never really planned to buy one due to price, but when an AD offered me a $1K discount, I couldn’t pass it up. Stupid eBay verification program delayed arrival by four days but I got a handy, useless, “authenticated” form with the watch.

The BALL DM3108A-SCJ-BK Engineer Master II Skindiver II. Yes, two “II”s in this one. Do have to love Ball and their long ass names.

Specs:
◆ Automatic caliber BALL RR1103-C
◆ Chronometer certified COSC
◆ 15 double-sized micro gas tubes
◆ Automatic helium release valve
◆ 5,000Gs shock resistance
◆ Water resistant to 500m/1,650ft
◆ 4,800A/m Antimagnetic
◆ Ø 43mm, height 14mm
◆ Ceramic luminous unidirectional rotating bezel
◆ Anti-reflective sapphire crystal
◆ Screwed-in crown
◆ Stainless steel bracelet with folding buckle

Nice watch. Do you know how eBay authenticates? Do they open it up?
If they did, they didn’t include a movement photo and didn’t leave a mark on the case back. They did have a tamper proof seal across the case back that locked onto bracelet. Big warning that if removed, no return.

Thanks, all. Super excited to have a Ball back.
