I am new to this site/forum but have been a Ball enthusiast for about 5 years. I have several Ball watches and am now interested in a few for my 76 year old mother. She too loves watches and with the added benefit of the tritium and waterproof characteristics, they will be perfect watches for her.

I am interested in either great deals on new watches or good deals on used ones in great shape. They need to have a stainless steel bracelet because she only has use of one hand and would not be able to put on a leather strap.

Does anyone have any suggestions or can point me in the right direction?

Thank you,

Gary

EHC Ceramic midsize, some of the other dress watches come in ladies models also - 60 seconds, etc. I've seen a few Fireman I ladies models in stores, and then there's the whole Transcendent line

Hi Gary,
I happen to like the lds ohio line and the conductor line.

Thank you for your suggestions. I think a midsized might not be a bad idea. She has fairly large hands so the watch doesn't need to be too dainty. In fact, at her age, I would prefer something large enough for her to easily see the date and the tritium at night. The more tritium, the better. I have been looking for a midsize ceramic in white to buy at an aggressive price, used in good condition would be ok. So far, no luck.

I agree Mike. The Ladies Arabic in white with date magnifier would also be a good choice. Do you have or know of a used one at a competitive price?
Thanks,
G
