BALL ENGINEER HYDROCARBON SPACEMASTER ORBITAL WATCH

It is more evidence of the watch brand’s strong attachment to space exploration, being the result of a long partnership between BALL Watch Company and the space pilot Brian Binnie. Using its famous luminescence technology, BALL Watch has designed Arabic numerals with micro tubes of 3H gas that make the dial much more readable. The same micro tubes of luminescent gas are applied onto the hour markers as well as the hands. The chronograph function operates in addition to the GMT hand that can be set on another time zone in order to offer some useful watchmaking complications. When the risk of shocks has ended, unlocking the rotor brings the automatic winding system back into action. The night-reading properties of the watch are completed by a powerful luminescent paint applied on the bezel.

Together they complete the features of this chronograph. In the northern hemisphere, south can then be determined by turning the bezel to position the south marker on the dial milestone located exactly halfway between the hour hand and 12 o’clock. The four cardinal points of the compass are indicated by stamped markers that stand slightly above the bezel for easy manipulation. The anti-reflective sapphire crystal incorporates a Cyclops magnifying lens positioned over the date window at 3 o’clock, making it easy to read. Other characteristic elements of the Engineer Hydrocarbon collection are the patented crown protection system, the tapered titanium and stainless steel bracelet and the patented triple folding buckle with extension system. Like a compass, the bidirectional rotating bezel is marked with a scale in segments of 5 degrees.

Having led the way in chronometric standards — and on the strength engijeer a past that is closely linked to the history of the American railways — Ball Watch is one of the best-established and most highly respected watchmaking brands in the United States. The system also shows its value when worn by Brian Binnie during his space flights that rely on sophisticated instruments in an environment subject to numerous shocks. This ingenious process instantly indicates the other compass cardinal points on the bezel, transforming the watch into a true navigation instrument.

When the risk of shocks has ended, unlocking the rotor brings the automatic winding system back into action.

A switch in the form of an aircraft propeller is located on the case back, enabling the rotor to be locked and unlocked as desired. The same micro tubes of luminescent gas are applied onto the hour engineef as well as the hands.

Together they complete the features of this chronograph. And the choice of titanium for the material of the case makes it surprisingly light and comfortable on the wrist. Sincethe Ball Watch Company has been eengineer mechanical timepieces that meet the most stringent criteria in terms of accuracy, quality awtch reliability. BALL Watch has even managed to incorporate cylindrical micro tubes directly into the push buttons of the chronograph. The Engineer Hydrocarbon Spacemaster Orbital II is the worthy successor to the limited series of pieces launched in with great success.

This protective ring also has anti-magnetic properties to preserve the movement from magnetic fields that can affect the precision of a mechanical watch. They can even cause the watch mechanism to stop completely. The chronograph function operates in addition to the GMT hand that can be set on another time zone in order to offer some useful watchmaking complications. BALL Watch has extended its line of highly advanced automatic chronographs fitted with its unique anti-shock system.

However, the watch continues to run when the rotor is immobilized by drawing on the power reserve of its caliber. The switch is significantly larger on the Engineer Hydrocarbon Spacemaster Orbital II than on the previous model in order to make it easier to use. The anti-reflective sapphire crystal incorporates a Cyclops magnifying lens positioned over the date window at 3 o’clock, making it easy to read. It is more evidence of the watch brand’s strong attachment to space exploration, being the result of a long partnership between BALL Watch Company and the space pilot Brian Binnie.

Any substantial shock can create sudden and violent oscillations of the rotor of an automatic watch that can seriously spoil the enginedr. During activities that may create external shocks, locking the rotor prevents the energy of frontal impacts from being transmitted to the movement.

The high inertia of the oscillating weight can also be annoying when playing certain sports, such as golf, that repeatedly subject the wrist to external shocks. Using its famous luminescence technology, BALL Watch has designed Arabic numerals with micro tubes of 3H gas hydrocarbob make the dial much more readable.

This state-of-the-art Swiss technology requires no external light or energy source and is up to times more effective than conventional luminescent paints. Titanium also provides exceptional robustness and corrosion-resistance while presenting a beautiful matte finish.
