    Default Tips for new BALL owner?

    I just purchased an Engineer II Chronometer Red Label. Other than not setting the day/date between 8 PM and 2 AM, is there anything I need to know about the watch?

    Thanks for any tips you may give me.

    Thanks for the suggestions. I wear one watch pretty much 24/7. Right now I have two retired Rolexes, both with dead tritium. Rolex uses Super Luminova for replacement hands and dial markings, so the night show is questionable. With the tritium tubes on the BALL, there is always a night show. I can even brush my teeth in the dark with the BALL. My dental hygienist says to brush each quadrant for 30 seconds. With the tritium tube on the second hand of the BALL, I can do that in the dark.

    does the recommendation to not set the date when the time is between 9 p.m. and 2 a.m. still apply on newer watches?

    Yes, I would assume it does.

    I'd recommend you use a toothbrush instead.
