yes indeed, i browsed the site. cool stuff. i think though i would want the watch the most. my kids would destroy the clock somehow i am sure, and i am not a desk clock guy. plus, think of all the awesome comments i would get from the watch!

Today I'm wearing the 5040J along with a pair of very comfortable Gaziano & Girling boots (pic I shared this morning in the G&G Appreciation Thread). 

 

As for the "I'm about to spring into action" shot, that's just in line with what I do every day as a desk worker...

Hey everyone,

 

what do you guys think of Ball watches?  I own a Tag Formula 1 (college grad present) and am looking to start building a collection now that funds are coming in.  Ideally, something a bit more dressy than my sporty black dial Tag.  I had planned to pick up a Hamilton Jazzmaster Viewmatic (http://www.hamiltonwatch.com/en/ladies/american-classic/jazzmaster/viewmatic-auto/H32515555) as my dress watch...and probably still will (is this SF approved?)...but not next.  The reason I'm looking into Ball - I was recently presented with the opportunity to pick one up at 60% off retail price from a friend working at an AD.  This puts them into my $800-$1000 price range, and I figure I can get "more watch for the buck" as my research indicates good quality and a cool history.  What do you guys think about the following two?

http://www.tourneau.com/shop/brand/ball-watch/fireman-victory-51393p

 

Both are available in different faces and straps...I'm leaning towards a silver face with a brown leather strap to be a bit more on the dressy side...but open to whatever

 

Whats the SF input on these?  (apologies if this post should be in the poor man's watch thread - not sure where the dividing line is)

Honestly I've never heard of Ball before but I'm just starting to learn about watches so don't let that stop you. IMO "SF approved" is a very grey term when it comes to these things, in general if it represents good quality for the money then it should be considered SF approved. However you have those cases where if the watch doesn't say Patek Philippe, Vacheron Constantin, Audemars Piguet, Breguet, A. Lange Sohne on it then its automatically a "crap watch". I personally don't believe in the latter as i think its silly but you will always have those watch snobs around. In response to your second question if you are going for a dress watch i would go for the first one. I really like the silver watch face and think the design is a classic. These are just my opinions btw but hopefully someone with experience with Ball watches chimes in.

Ball does have a great history, but I'm not sure it's an unbroken line. I bet Stich can fill us in on that.

 

As for the watches, well, some of their offerings look great to me, and the prices are of course a plus, but they also make some hideous objects that I wouldn't want in my home, to say nothing of on my wrist. At the deal you're getting, if you choose wisely I think you'll be a happy camper.

Thanks for sharing. I'd forgotten about this video. I'm wearing mine today! Was pleased to see a flash of the black-dialled version of my watch in the video. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

On the theme of APs, I'm liking the new SIHH 2013 offerings from Le Brassus (pics borrowed from TimeZone):

Tradition Minute Repeater Tourbillon Chronograph:

ROO Ceramic Chronograph:


And my personal favourite, the ROO Ceramic Diver:


The new Ceramic Diver has made me re-think my plans for buying the Extra Thin Jules Audemars, though I probably don't need another sports watch!
