The Engineer Master II Diver GMT brings a golden aura to the BALL collection of divers watches that currently includes chronometers, chronographs and mechanical thermometers.
BALL explorer Guillaume Nery, the young French free diver in the constant discipline of Apnea, was the three time world record holder at 25 years of age. His most recent record was set wearing the Engineer Master II Diver GMT, which he had hand in crafting.
The Engineer Master II Diver collection presents series of watches designed specifically with divers in mind. The rotating inner bezel is the first to use BALL micro gas tubes for uninterrupted light at any depth. The gas tubes glows for up to 25 years with no need for batteries or charging by light. The Arabic numbers constructed of gas tubes, a BALL signature design, ensure both the hour and the elapsed time bezel are quickly and easily visible.
Engineer Master II Diver GMT is a master piece of color. The stainless steel case is coated in Diamond like Carbon which gives it a stunning gunmetal Grey coloring. Metals coated with DLC exhibit impressive hardness, low friction, high resistance to wear and even electrical insulation.Golden accents set off the GMT display to make it easily legible.
Red O-rings, visible when the crowns are unscrewed, form a crucial part of the superb water tight gasket system that ensures water resistance to 300 meters. The crowns operate under water to adjust the time of elapsed minutes ring with no difficulty.
For deep diving, illumination is necessary to read the diver’s time piece. At the depth of 100 meters that Guillaume reaches with out assistance or equipment on regular basis, the ambient light is about 1% of surface light. Scuba divers can often reach depths far lower.
