Which is your other?

I am thinking of picking up a Ball the next time I am in Singapore in a couple of months. I saw one model that had a similar mesh style bracelet like the Brietling Super Ocean for around $1200 that seemed like quite a bargain. I just looked on their site and did not see a watch with that bracelet. I found in general that some watches, the dealers have more options than what is shown on the site. Especially for Rolex; there's too many variants for them to post all the combo's online.

This was my first one. The Hydrocarbon Ceramic XV voted watch of the year 2012. I got it at around 20% off. The red label I bought used from Topper for more than half off retail. I think they're a great value and I get plenty of compliments on them.

Being that my last name is Ball, I have a little collection of them... here's a repost of a pic earlier in this thread:

Default Re: Wristwatch collectors out there?

Have any of you been to a Ball watch vendor? Their displays are pretty cool.

Ball does a great job on the finishing. Seems like Middle East & Asia are their main markets. In Singapore, tons stores sell them; then again Singapore is the watch capital of the world by a long shot.

Typically, the mid level kind of stores where Breitling, Ball, TAG would be their highline brands. I couldn't find a quick picture of the Ball mesh bracelet, but it's exactly like the Breitling which is super comfortable and en vogue right now.

I like that vintage a lot. I wanted an Omega Aqua Terra but it was a bit too expensive. The red label looks very similar to an aqua terra and at a fifth of the price of an omega, I couldn't resist.

Those Ball watches are super nice. IF (BIG IF) I ever wear a watch again, these would be at the top of the list. Vintage Heuer would be 2nd.
