On your nightstand lies multiple watches, each with their own functions, pros and cons, and aesthetic. Many of these timepieces sacrifice strength or precision at the hands of function or size. The new Ball Engineer II Timetrekker provides exceptional strength and resilience to damage without shorting you on style and precision.
The aesthetic is no-nonsense – straightforward, clean, and functional. Inside the timepiece, a Ball COSC dual time movement module keeps time in two time zones. An anti-reflective sapphire crystal covers the blue, black, or brown dial. At three o’clock, a date aperture stands, while six o’clock holds a day and night indicator. White fills the aperture during the day, blue during the night, and both sync with the local time.
The blue hour hand serves as the secondary hour hand, marking foreign time. Quick set buttons located at eight and ten o’clock move the hour markers forwards and backward and employ a lock system to avoid any unintended time changes. If you’re in the local office, easily hide the blue hour hand behind the local hour hand until needed again.
On the backside of the case, another sapphire crystal offers a view of the internal mechanisms, and etched in gold is the “Official Standard RR Ball Watch Company, Swiss Made.” Around the aperture’s diameter is a serial number for identification, and there is also room for personalized engraving.
A Red Eye Aesthetic
Turn down the lights as you float across time zones. Micro gas tubes in the Arabic numerals and watch hands illuminate, utilizing leading luminescent technology to transform the dial into a luminous face. Green and yellow micro-gas tubes glow on every hour marker and time hands to keep visibility regardless of conditions. The different time zones’ indicators are marked with different colors to avoid confusion.
An Unanticipated Strength
To adventure – to explore unknown territory – requires unquestioning resilience in the face of unforeseen conditions. At 12.8 millimeters thick and sporting a 40-millimeter diameter case, this watch is unsuspectingly strong. The slim size and strength match your stride on the trek, ready to withstand the day ahead. With 100 meters of water resistance, there’s no hesitation to dive deeper into the unknown.
The 904L stainless steel won’t leave you stranded. Chromium, molybdenum, nickel, and copper in the 904L stainless steel imbue the Engineer II Trekker with strength enough for any adventure. It’s resistant to corrosion, rust, and acids. Combined with the Ball-patented Amortiser system to protect the precision against impacts, this timepiece will be a trusted companion for years to come.
