BALL Watch Company has earned an enviable reputation for delivering Swiss watches exhibiting a hewn from granite solidity and delivered at remarkably keen prices. The Engineer II Skin Diver upholds this tradition.
The 43mm stainless steel case provides a suitable vessel to protect its self-winding movement from: shocks (up to 5000 Gs), magnetic fields (up to 4800 A/m) and water (rated as water resistant to 500 metres).
This is a no-nonsense, honest diver’s watch which offers a masculine mien, bestowing excellent legibility day or night. Indeed, BALL Watch Company has become known for its amazing luminescent dials which glow wonderfully in restricted light, courtesy of its patented micro-gas tubes.
The automatic movement is certified as a chronometer by COSC and the case is equipped with a helium valve, reaffirming its diver’s credentials.
This watch offers widespread appeal, perfectly at home with jeans, a tuxedo or diving suit. In terms of broad appeal, the BALL Watch Company Engineer II Skin Diver equally lends itself to life on terra firma or beneath the waves, courtesy of its impressive specification.
