I totally agree. it seems very likely they'd do that. Glad I have the smiley face!when I tried your watch this week at AD, the sales manager told me that they were putting the new "in house" movement in and moving away from the ETA based, just as they have with the new S&G 36/39/41
of course he may be mistaken - but its the same move they made with the BB diver 41 changing movement from ETA to in house
my thought as well. I really like the way the dial on the Ball catches the light. I'm also biased b/c I don't prefer snowflake handsets.I really like the dial on that Ball, and that would be my keeper.
That Tudor doesn’t have an in house movement, it doesn’t even have an ETA, it has a Sellita.In general I'm more impressed with Tudor's inhouse movements than with Balls. I've got three Balls and at this time only one Tudor. Maybe it's my Crown focus but I also believe that the support for the Rolex based products is much better than that for Ball. My Ball watch has never shown close to its reserve capability.
Thanks for the update! I’ll keep my vote for Tudor as cast then. I like the simpler dial, along with the round indices of the Tudor dial. And as much as I am a fan of Ball, I don’t have the same sentimental attachment to the brand that I do with Tudor, so for me at least, the choice was easy. They are both beautiful and you can’t really go wrong with either, but then again you already know this or else the choice would be easy hahaha. Let us know what ends up sticking around! It’s a tough decision but someone has to do it hahahaSorry changed it, which to keep.
