The palms are quite elegant, and remind me of the palms used in the JLC Master Ultrathin. This is, of course, the “RR” logo. It’s quite elegant.It’s not in any way evident from wearing the opinion, but these tritium tubes substantially increase the depth of the hands.Those hands are paired with those alluring “enamel” hour mark, each carrying their own tritium tube. Like the palms, these are angled in order to catch and reflect light away from the watch, which generates an attractive contrast. Here, for example, you can view 1 side of nearly all of the markers representing the blue sky.Speaking of tritium, Ball used a yellow and green contrast to the Red Label. As for me, I’d love to have seen the cooler reddish tritium tubes, given the namesake, but that does look good also. The palms and 12:00 marker use yellow, which offers great readability at night. Here the 3:00 is pointing up, and the mark is reduced in size because of the day/date screen. And, unlike traditional lume, this will not die out overnight. Unless that night is 20 decades long. It goes without saying that it requires no “cost” to glow bright.he case is an elegant and understated all-polished layout. I especially like how the angle of this bezel matches that of the domed crystal, making the crystal look far more curved than it really is.hat crystal, by the way, is AR coated double curved sapphire.he Ball features a screw down crown to complement its own 100 meter water resistance rating. Instead, I really like instances that feature an all polished layout since they tend to be the easiest to touch up down the road.In lieu of a screen caseback, Ball provides a cool locomotive theme.
