I’ve been using the Ballade III for a couple of months and from the eyes of an average person, it’s a very good watch.
After a month of use, it’s around 2.5 minutes ahead. which should be less than 6 seconds per day.
The date window is between 4 & 5 which can be a bit strange, but you’ll get used to it. Compared to my Orient and Bulova watches… That date window is a really big plus, especially if you plan to use it as a daily watch.
Bracelet is nicely done, no sharp edges and it also doesn’t have a rattling sound.
IMO, highly recommended watch.
