This watch does an excellent impression of the Rolex Explorer IMHO...40mm, 904L steel, automatic movement with power reserve, screw down crown, 100m water resistance. Super clean dial with subdued power reserve at the lower 1/3 of the dial at 6 o'clock. Display sapphire case back with beautiful detailing tops it all off. This watch was purchased new from an AD in December 2020. It has not been sized or worn...plastic is still on the bracelet. Selling to free up some funds following a spending tear last month. The detailing and finishing on these "next generation" Ball watches has blown me away. They are now on equal footing with the rest of the premier Swiss brands in my eyes, but their new models are way more exciting (to me) than the same old designs you see from some of the dinosaurs. Value is unbelievable. How Ball has managed to machine 904L stainless steel and package it in a watch with this much detail/quality is a mystery to me, but it has resulted in a phenomenally beautiful watch. It's also a "limited edition" of 1000 if that matters to you, but think about how many Explorers got made last year...you won't see this watch on every other wrist:).

No trades, straight sale only. CONUS only. Canada and overseas at my discretion, and only if I know you. MSRP on this watch is $2399. Selling for $1599, including tracked shipping and Paypal fees.
