Ladies or Gents Ball Watch (ball Engineer etc.) from £529 @ Secret Sales

Found 11th Aug
Yeah, I know, I know £529 starting price for a watch...

However, this price is considerably less than retail and these are great watches, having a very loyal following.

They make their own movements too, which is great. They are generally very well regarded in the watch community and are both smart and functional - the tritium gas tubes inside are amazing in the complete darkness and look fantastic.

The annoying thing about secret sales is that you have to sign up to them before you can view their goods - which I hate, so if you're not bothered about these watches then don't hassle yourself by clicking through the link. Although, secret sales is one of those sites that occasionally have genuinely good deals on last season big labels, if that's your bag.

Here are some of the model they have available on the site:
Fireman Victory on Rubber Strap 40mm. £529.
3011527.jpg3011527.jpgGents Fireman Victory - 40mm. £569.

3011527.jpgGents Engineer Silver-Tone - £749

Oh and many thanks to Knoxen for his initial heads-up on this deal back in May.

If you buy one don’t make the same mistake I did when I decided to change the bracelet. I typed ‘Ball Leather Strap’ into eBay and was horrified at the results !

Got the time on ye, cock?
Decent prices
Prices for a ball watch seem indecent to me.

In fact a bit of a ball ache.

Ball mostly use ETA Movements, good quality but by no means “in house”.

Yup, correct. Thought the quality you get is quite amazing. My ohio is +1s and looks grand.
I've never used secret sales before. Are they ok?

Yes, at least there's a couple people I know who use it a lot. I'd suggest using paypal either way with a credit card. The other thing to remember that many other watches that come up on the site are:

1) Just cheap that with a silly RRP
2) only have 6 month guarantee (these can get the 3 year one if you register them).

‘Unknown’ shows your lack of knowledge of watches, and if you can find a new Tag for half price then I’ll join the queue.

Guilty as charged, I struggle to keep up with all those chinese brands on alibaba.
