Lately, my Ball Engineer II has gotten the most wear time off work.



But after seeing J's Grand Seiko....for the second time, I had to search for one. And I found one I really liked!

I love Ball watches!

I gave one to my older brother for Christmas and he is enamored with it.

I was going to direct you to the For Sale ad below that I noticed a couple days ago, but it looks like it sold yesterday:

https://forums.watchuseek.com/...on-lnib-4911371.html

It is a beautiful watch. I still think I prefer my classic green Alpinist, but this one is certainly a close runner-up.

On a completely unrelated matter, I'm now four months into waiting on Orient to fix a simple warranty matter on a watch. Fortunately, I've never had to send a watch in to any manufacturer for service, so I don't know what is the typical and expected length of time, but I have to say four months seems just shy of egregious, and so my patience is growing tremendously short.

This Orient is not only my first Orient but will most assuredly be my last.


Update to this: After about four-and-a-half months, my Orient is scheduled to be delivered today. One of the delays involved turned out to be an incidental crystal replacement that I requested, and the replacement crystal was noted internally to have a defect so a second replacement had to be ordered and installed. No idea if the original warranty issue (stoppage) has been addressed or fixed...guess I'll find out over the next week or so as I wear it, though perhaps the order receipt will have some notation to indicate. Based on my dealings with Orient thus far, I'm not optimistic.

I got a comfy Citizen lefty diver today. A Fugu (Japanese for pufferfish) limited Edition Asian market diver. So far I REALLY LIKE LOVE IT. The eight o’clock crown position is wonderful. I can move my hand all around and the crown stays out of the way.

I need to buy more left handed watches with eight o’clock crown positions. Other than missing hacking this thing is great.


Is that Chinese?

If you're referring to the ideogram in the date window, it could be Japanese or Chinese. The Japanese language has two alphabets, hiragana and katakana, and also uses idiograms borrowed from Chinese and called kanji. Given the location on that watch, though, it's most likely the Chinese character for "Friday."

Here's a graphic that may help:

My Tag Heuer Carrera stopped......again and now won't run. It's still under extended warranty, but I've read numerous claims of bad service by Tag repair center in New Jersey.

And advice on a good Tag repair center in the mid or west coast that can handle the 1887 movement without screwing it up?

I like this Orient so far. Domed crystal as well as dial make the dial pop quite a bit, though I couldn't get a good photo wearing it without glare.

I'm not a fan of yellow gold, but like the subdued hue of 'rose gold' markers and hands. The band was a tan suede/shiny black trim combo that I think was chosen to highlight the gold. Not a suede type of guy, and it just seemed too busy.

Replaced with a Barton quick release band in 'espresso' that I think compliments the dial better, and allows the rose gold to appear more subtle.
