Hi there, we are currently in talks with our vendor regarding how to approach this issue. It is difficult to determine whether this issue has affected only a few users or the entire drop, but if you didn't get the Streamliner, please contact Community Support through your transactions tab so that we can get you the correct watch.

Stiggerten Monty94 We are in contact with the vendor and CS will be reaching out to you individually to gather information and to provide instructions on how to proceed with the replacement. Thanks for your continued patience!
just got an email and promo code sent to me fro JS for 200 off additional for a few of the models , i saw 599.99, which is really good for these watches, those prices and the code they're promoting are good till 7-1-18
How do we know if this is old stock or not? Who organises this drop? There also isn't information regarding warranty with Ball/ Massdrop etc. I know others have asked on the previous drop but no replies.

Surely we should be given a bit more information or whoever organises this drop should be available to answer some of these questions? It would be quite important factor in deciding to purchase...

No warranty, that we know.

Would Massdrop support know?

A watch, or more precisely a movement, that hacks is one where the second hand stops when the crown is pulled out. Useful for precise time setting.

Thank you pdxwatchguy!
Do other Ball models come to Massdrop? Or is this the first or only Ball watch?

It appears that other models crop up from time to time: https://www.massdrop.com/search/ball-watch/drops

Ah thanks for that. There are some specials at Jomashop but i think I will wait for the diver/combat models.
I joined the last drop, and I have been very happy with my Ball Trainmaster Streamliner. I think it is a beautiful, well-made watch that is a bargain at the price. Here is why I say that:

1) The movement - although there was speculation that the movement used was an ETA 2824-2, it turns out on mine has a modified version of the Sellita SW200. I don't takes sides in the ETA/Sellita wars, but my Ball loses less than 2 seconds a day, a number that I am very happy with, although I don't know if others are seeing the same results.

2) The dial, case, and crystal - I have 6 3/4" inch wrists and this 39mm watch has great wrist presence for me. The AR coated sapphire crystal is top notch. The dial and handset are well-crafted and elegant. The case has sophisticated and dimensional polished and brushed surfaces unusual in my experience at this price point. I find the much maligned tritium is bright enough to get the job done. It certainly lacks the pizazz of freshly charged lume, but in the middle of the night my Ball is still readable when my Seiko Turtle SPR779 has gone dark.

3) The bracelet - The bracelet is comfortable and sophisticated. The links are all solid, w/ screws instead of pins, and "flow" (for lack of better term) over my wrist. The 2 "half links" are approximately 2/3rds the size of the full size links, which allowed me, after trial and error, to dial in a great fit. The lack of micro adjustment settings will be an issue for some, but I wear my bracelet loose-ish, so it is not an issue for me.

All in all, I am very happy with the watch especially at the price.

Edit
In response to requests for a lume shot, here is the best I could do. The picture was taken in the dark side by side with my relatively discharged Scurfa diver. I would describe the lume as faint, but readable in the dark. If you are expecting to be blown away by the lume, this is not the watch for you.

I think I'd likely end up regretting it if this ended up being old stock.
More than likely I'll just shell out for one of the Ball watches I've been eyeing.

Can someone who has purchased one please post a genuine image of the watch glowing in the dark? Thanks.
