WATCH IS NOW SOLD.
I am regretfully selling my original Magnate and one other Ball watch to fund another priority in life. This model rarely comes up for sale. Many other watches have come and gone; this one has been a true favorite since day one. The build quality, legibility at any time of day or night, all-around capability, and visual appeal are all amazing. When I can, I will gladly buy this exact model again. The bracelet is sized to my 7.25" wrist; additional links, if needed, are easily obtainable from any Ball dealer. The movement is running extremely well and keeping very impressive time for me, within a few seconds per day. The bracelet, case and bezel have a number of very superficial small scratches and swirlies consistent with regular but not hard wear. Lume is fantastic but if you know Ball watches, that's no surprise. I love this handset, the crown system, and everything about the overall design, including the very cool case back with the bathyscaphe. Basically, I think this watch is designed to both delight and outlast its owner.

I'm asking [PRICE REDUCED] $1095 and I will even cover CONUS shipping and Paypal fees! Willing to consider non-US buyers on a case-by-case basis and with some added shipping cost. I've bought and sold a number of times here and elsewhere if you'd like references. Thanks for looking.
