    Ball EMII Sportsman Ducks Unlimited watch wrist shots

    So there were a few requests to post some wrist shots of the Ball EMII Sportsman that Rob reviewed in this thread:

    http://www.intlwatchleague.com/showt...(Photo-Review)

    As a recap if you join Ducks Unlimited for $35 you can purchase this watch which retails for $1999 for $1299. Considering what you get is a Ball EMII Titanium diver that is redialed and bezeled as a woodsman/survival/navigator watch on a composite strap. This package weighs in at 102 grams as it comes from Ball. One thing about the case setup that they choose is that the secondary crown for the bezel does not need to be screwed in or out to operate. It has a heavy click to rotate the bezel. For these pictures I put it on a Ball deployant that I have.

    It was in Rob's write up, but I will correct in a few moments.

    1) The Alpinist has some competition
    2) Really cool and interesting functions / specs - that isn't something you see every day. And...
    3) ...Now that I've seen a limited edition duck watch I believe I actually have seen everything.

    That's a lot of watch for the money. The one thing I don't quite understand is the operation/function of the sunrise/sunset indicator. Do you simply adjust the bezel to show the time of the sunrise/sunset?

    I've question this a bit and if you look it is coordinated so sunrise=East and sunset=West. The light and dark half circle I believe is coordinated with the the north and south hemisphere when you are utilizing the watch bezel and hands as a compass. You compensate differently based on hemisphere. When I figured this out it makes more sense.

    I have to admit I missed the review Rob did, so I read that just now. It sure is a beauty!
    Not too sure about the duck on the dial, but it is fun, and I like the idea behind it.

    Regards,

    Martin
