At *** I thought the Ballast would be an inexpensive everyday watch. I ordered two, one in the Black/Black/Silver and one in the Brown/Black/Gunmetal. After reading the descriptions of the watches I was impressed. They arrived today and are going back tomorrow for a refund. They describe the watches as having a comfortable leather strap. The leather looks cheap and feels as though it would fall apart without much wear. The stainless steel felt and also looked cheap. The chronograph didn't work correctly and when hitting re-set it stopped at ten minutes before the 12 o'clock position. I own several high end watches and a number of medium priced watches and have been very pleased with each of them. If "Ballast" hopes to compete in the marketplace, it's my opinion that they have a very long way to go! Save your time and money. At ****, I think you can find a much better watch.
