Latest info received via email today is that every watch fitted with this new movement will come with a 10 year warranty as standard.

That's pretty significant! Especially for an independent brand. Looking forward to the "official" announcement later today.

Re: Red Bezel Tridents

The white dial looks nice.....much more dressier vs the black dial... My exact thoughts on a white dial dive watch. It’s like the tuxedo of dive watches. And a colored bezel adds in that splash of sartorial style. Only for you young bucks with good eyes. I’ve had variations of white dials (red, gre...

Re: Red Bezel Tridents

I read in another thread that the red bezel Tridents are being discontinued..is this actually confirmed or rumor. I hope it's just rumor as I'm just trying to scrounge the cash to get a used one... I thought I read somewhere in the forum that the red dye was not available any longer?? Or something ...

I like the OP39 (114300) but whilst you guys have gone for the blue and grey dials, I have always preferred the white dialled version. Great watches though.
I don't think you could go wrong with any of them!

Re: The term 'WIS'

I'm with you TigerChris - I don't consider myself a WIS - just a person who happens to love watches. I consider the term for the hobbyist who knows every movement, detail, and history of various brands. Of course that's just my $.02

Re: Ball Watch Company - Under Rated Brand?

Thanks for your comments folks. For me this is the only watch I have, that has tritium tube technology for night illumination, and that aspect alone has really impressed me. Budman, if you do purchase the Roadmaster, do please provide an update with some photos etc. I will be very interested. I was...

Re: Ball Watch Company - Under Rated Brand?

Nice looking Engineer III. I've heard nothing but good things about Ball and since I'm from Cleveland, OH (where they started) I've been itching to grab one.I've got my eye on the Roadmaster Marine GMT but it's still on pre-order. If it gets released before the end of the month I'll likely pick one ...

Looks great! I prefer the non-skeleton hands on the professional. I've had mine for over ten years and she ain't going nowhere !

It's one thing having a patinated case but not sure about the patinated bracelet look, does it have a steel underside to prevent your wrist going foostie.
I thought I read that the bracelet is ALL bronze except for the link pins. Could definitely be a problem down the road
