I'm not sure I understand what direction of chat this thread is intended to take.....I don't care, I just don't know...

FWIW, the BMW pairing that works for me is Ball for BMW's line of watches. I'm most keen on the Ball for BMW diver, but the rest are good too. The Tourneau line of BMW watches works also, but I prefer the look of the Ball ones.

Frankly, I wish the Ball for BMW diver were made as a quartz watch as are the Tourneau BMW co-branded watches. It's one watch that I don't see much reason for it's being mechanical. Ball has a notable history of mechanical watchmaking, but BMW certainly doesn't, so I don't have much of a compelling reason to buy a Ball for BMW mechanical watch other than that they use tritium lume, which I strongly prefer over SuperLuminova lume on sport watches.

All the best.
