This New Ball Engineer Master II Pilot GMTis a launch which is revisited as a tribute to all our aviation heroes.
With its close ties to the world of exploration, BALL Watch was fortunate enough to have one of its watches
tested by Captain Poindexter of NASA in 2010. After sending the Engineer Hydrocarbon Spacemaster into
space, BALL Watch conceived a model to honor the memory of the captain, in collaboration with the Poindexter family. Today BALL continues on the same trajectory and presents a new model as tribute to the
pantheon of heroes from the world of aviation: the Engineer Master II Pilot GMT watch. Over the decades,
aircraft pilots have shown constant courage and valor, whether in wartime or during expeditions for the benefit of science. This model is dedicated to them, in gratitude for their bravery and their achievements.
Dedicated to aircraft heroes, the Engineer Master II Pilot GMT watch has been conceived by the renowned designer Magali Métrailler. A resolutely vintage style combined with contemporary finishes brings this unique timepiece up-to-date. The structure of the dial gives the model a sense of perspective while the flange displaying the indexes adds greater depth to the watch. The impressive openness of the 43.5 mm-diameter dial makes for excellent legibility and accentuates the model's finesse.
As with all BALL watches, the Engineer Master II Pilot GMT is all about light, with its indexes and hands fitted
with luminescent micro tubes containing H3 gas. This state-of-the-art Swiss technology is 100 times more
effective than conventional luminous paints yet requires no exterior light or energy source. All the indexes are
green in color while the hours, minutes and seconds hands are colored yellow.
The GMT hand and the ndexes on the rotating bezel have been painted luminescent green. BALL has showcased the luminosity of this model by offering a different finish on the dial.
Its Swiss Made mechanical movement can be admired through the sapphire crystal case back. To perfect the
aeronautical character, a world map has been beautifully engraved in the center of the dial. This discreet touch gives the watch a unique character that is in perfect accord with its theme. A touch of red adds some
contrasting color to the watch and allows for easy reading of the second time-zone. With a quick glance the wearer can differentiate between the two time-zones without cause for confusion.
Thank you very much for following!
Have a nice day!
