Not very exciting for what it probably costs.

Watch is a fail.

A unique anti shock feature? Special night viewing feature? Are you kidding me?

Video is a fail.

Were the interviews done in a Miami Police lockup? Looks like it.

I don't have a clue how much this is. I'd give maybe $50 for it.

I suspect that it will have the cost of a Patek Phillipe and the quality of a Seiko.

Sort of reminds me of a '80s Seiko.

Has Ball ever made a watch that was exciting? I can think of 10 watches I would rather have, easily...

If you want a race/engineering inspired watch then you get a Graham: Graham Stowe

But if you want to go hardcore Graham then: Graham Chronofighter GMT

I had never heard of Ball, so after reading this I did some research. Seems like a decent company and they have some beautiful watches.
