Ball Brings Light In Underwater Darkness
With the new Engineer II Skindiver Heritage Ball Watches provides divers with an essential function under water: to see their elapsed diving time. While diving computers have mostly taken over that task, many divers like a watch as a backup. Especially when you dive deep, or at night, the Super-LumiNova doesn’t quite cut it, but the micro gas tubes provide you with the ability to check the time.
At the Engineer II Skindiver Heritage these micro gas tubes are not only limited to the hour markers on the dial and the hands but are also fitted in the bezel. With a 42mm large case, it is the perfect size, while the domed sapphire crystal adds some vintage appeal. The shape of the bezel as well as the profile of the case are reminiscent of times long gone, too.
Inside we find caliber 7309. This is a manufacture movement that is Chronometer certified and has a very generous power reserve of 80 hours. Additionally the Engineer II Skindiver Heritage will also be available with Ball caliber RR1102, which features a day and date display and can be Chronometer certified as well. The water resistance for all models is a healthy 200 meters, which is more than enough to take it with you on a beautiful dive!
