    Wow, what an awesome BALL collection Michael !

    Love the unique look of the BALL watches.


    These two are my favorite BALL watches.

    The chrono is just stunning.

    I would probably hate this on the wrist, but as a desk clock it is stunning to look at. I love how distorted the crystal makes the hands from the side. It's kind of a pretend diver in that it has no countdown marks anywhere.

    I've always been a closet fan of the Corum bubble watch, but sad they lost the fun on the new ones they released. These kind of remind me of those.

    The chrono is just stunning.
    If I had to choose the three best that Ball had made it would be the EHC DeepQUEST(DQ), EHC Black and the first generation Skindiver. The DQ is an amazingly well engineered watch and the way Ball has the crown set up it is and has remained my standard for how a crown should work. I've never tried anything that can match it, and I've tried nearly everything. Also for it's size it actually is very balanced on the wrist.

    The Black just over 100 gram weight and low profile make it possibly a candidate for the best every day watch category. It shares a Ball first 3D ceramic bezel insert with the Airborne. If it dressed up a bit better it could possibly beat out my beloved Rolex Explorer II since it has the superior lume.

    While the Skindiver II has a long list of upgrades from the first generation, the 43mm case and wider bracelet make it not wear as well as the first generation IMO. Given the 40mm ability to fit nearly any wrist size it has been one of my most recommended Ball watches.
    Cheers,
