The watch varies a little from the pictorial, mine has black hands, but the watch joins a dozen others from Rolex to Longines I only buy cosc watches so accuracy is essential component. It's my only Ball watch and it is very accurate better than all the others bar none, although we are talking seconds over a few weeks, it is comfortable and easy to adjust in bracelet terms. The luminosity is excellent and I have an old Nite watch which isn't accurate to the same level to compare brightness and the Ball is more subtle but is a great feature that's ads value in my opinion. Would I buy another Ball watch? Yes on the strength of this one's performance.
