Limited Edition of 500 pieces.
Ball Watch Company Engineer Hydrocarbon Hunley Limited Edition PM2096B-S2J-BK. The year 2014 marks the 150th anniversary of the disappearance of the CSS Hunley. This submarine of the Confederate States of America Navy played a historic role in the countrys Civil War. Ever faithful to its American heritage, BALL Watch celebrates this major event in the development of the modern Navy by unveiling the new Engineer Hydrocarbon Hunley, the quintessence of cutting edge watchmaking technology. The CSS Hunley measured 12.04 meters long and 1.17 meters wide and weighed 8 tons. It was powered by a crank wielded by a team of eight men. The CSS Hunley was designed to attack ships from the North which were blockading Southern ports. The submarine had a long pole towards the bow fitted with an explosive charge called a torpedo mine. in 1864, off the port of Charleston, South Carolina, the CSS Hunley sank the Union ship USS Housatonic but then went down with its crew following the attack. Although its role in the conflict was limited, the historic success of the CSS Hunley demonstrated both the advantages and the dangers of undersea warfare. Like the pioneering role played by the CSS Hunley in its day, the new model of the Engineer Hydrocarbon collection incorporates the new version of one of the most significant watchmaking innovations in recent years. Developed and patented exclusively by the engineers at BALL Watch, the Amortiser system protects the automatic Swiss Made BALL RR1201 caliber against damage that may result from external impacts. Any significant impact on an automatic watch can cause violent and sudden oscillations of the rotor and result in considerable damage to the movement. Such situations can even lead to a complete stoppage of the watch mechanism. The high inertia of the oscillating mass can also be troublesome when playing certain sports, such as golf, which expose the wrist to repeated external shocks. To protect the heart of the watch, the Amortiser system consists of a protective ring around the mechanical movement that absorbs the energy created by side shocks. This protective ring also has anti magnetic properties to preserve the movement from magnetic fields that can affect the precision of a mechanical watch.
Complimentary CSS Hunley submarine miniature with every watch.
