Unexpectedly, I've been wearing the Ball the most, mainly because I tend to watch TV in the dark and fall asleep doing so. When I wake, my 1st instinct is to glance at my watch to see what time it is. The Ball's H3 lume is awesome for that, for it's bright enough that in a half-asleep haze, I can tell the time and go right back to sleep. LOLwhich of your new toys do you wear most??
Re: bold text:about 4 years ago I wen to my AD and planned to buy a APRO 15400. They had the 1st VC Overseas Gen 3 three-hander. I bought it instead. I wear it more than any other watch I have. I later went back and got a 15400 and was told that I go the last one that they had. I even got a discount. Which is a wishful thought today.
If you like the look and have the coin, the basic RO is a great watch to wear. It looks amazing with everything I've worn it with.Wasnt a fan of AP but certain models are growing on me

Well definitely dont have the coin now.. but would love to get one in the future.If you like the look and have the coin, the basic RO is a great watch to wear. It looks amazing with everything I've worn it with.
Having used it for a few weeks now, the one proviso I have to offer is that its antimagnetic capacity is paltry. It may even have none, though I haven't checked. Accordingly, suggest buying a demagnetizer of some sort if you buy an RO like mine.
Mine has gotten magnetized twice. The only things I can think of that may have done that to the watch are my tablet, phone or TV, though I suppose any number of other things - maybe a gizmo at the grocery store? - may have been the culprit. Moreover, insofar as steel retains magnetism even after leaving a magnetic field, the magnetism effect on my balance spring may have been additively wrought.
IDK. I just know that b4 swiping the watch with the demagnetizer, it gained several minutes per day and afterwards, it ran spot on, until it got magnetized again, whereafter demagnetizing restored it to spec, so to speak.
I’ve never been more jealous of someone else’s mindset"Love affair"
No watch will, for me, be a "love affair" thing. I'm not into watches; I merely wanted a few nice ones that I liked enough to buy because they put some panache in my wardrobe. When my Reverso arrives, I will have accomplished that, and that will be the end of my journey; I will then be merely a guy wearing a nice watch.
There are a few watches I've seen that I do really love, but insofar as I'm not willing to pay what I must to buy them, I got over them.
AFAIK, no, but then I wasn't paying all that much attention and haven't checked expressly. Maybe I should...Good info (+ frankly, not surprising). Have you had any other watch magnetized? (I assume you wear them all in the same environment).
