Love the photos. I've narrowed down the choices for my first Ball watch purchase and this one is at the top or near the top of the list. Clean dial, dual color, good bezel. It has it all. Questions: Are the indices on the bezel backlit by tritium or is it just normal lume. Also, how does the bezel feel?

The bezel indices are lit by normal lume. They aren't that bright, but after a few hours in the sun (or UV lamp), it does glow pretty good in the dark.

The "dot" indicator is Tritium (as far as I can tell) as it should be.

The bezel feels very good, sturdy and it turns very well. The clicks are very solid and responsive. I think this is an attribute of the Eng. Hydrocarbon series.

Although you may have read, that my particular Classic III is not working properly. It stops after just a few minutes / hours. I have to bring it back to get it fixed under warranty.

It is a good watch, looks very handsome and cool. I'd highly recommend it. I like the chrono version of the EHC, but my tiny wrists just can't sport it. :-(

Thanx

I've got this watch - my first Ball. Very pleased. The bezel lume isn't tritium (apart from the 12 o'clock pip) and hardly glows at all, but the tubes on the dial give a great effect.
Personally, I'm not bothered by the poor lume on the bezel, but some might be.
I'll also add, the case design and the curved lugs make it fit very nicely if you have a small wrist.

Regards,
Charlie

Thanks! I'm impresed, someone actually knows the color "grigio" ! I had no idea what that word is until I saw the color. :)

Acura forums... no, can you recommend any?

Nice watch and car. After I drive the wheels off my 01 TL, I'm seriously considering a TSX.
It is a nice car. Something different than a TL, since I see a lot more TLs on the road here, so TSX stands out more.

I'm in Canada, but FYI: I got this TSX (Tech pkg) for $500 more than the official retail price. So dealership made $500 Cdn profit. And I'm leasing with 0.4% rate (after loyalty discount and put down refundable deposit)
