In the 1960s, BALL Watch Company introduced its first dive watch for adventure seekers. The new BALL Engineer II Skindiver Heritage Full-Black watch in TiC coated steel case enhances the purpose-built functions of its historic predecessors.
With micro gas tube luminosity appearing underneath curved rotating bezel, on the dial, and arranged handsomely on the hands, the watch’s undeniable avant-garde design is sure to entice.
Clear visibility is of paramount importance to divers and explorers. The Swiss cutting-edge technology of micro gas tubes featured on the Skindiver Heritage makes this timepiece highly functional in the darkness of the depths.
This technology used by BALL Watch involves encapsulating H₃ gas in glass micro tubes— quite unlike any other luminescent material found in watchmaking. When the H₃ molecules strike the internal-colored surface of the tubes, they emit light without requiring any form of external light or energy source. To add some playful action to this all-black timepiece, the tubes form a combination of rainbow-like colors.
Combined with a black dial, this full-black model reveals a new-wave look while remaining top-notch in safety performance.
For easy use under water, the bezel and the crown of the Skindiver Heritage have been finely designed to allow firm grips even while wearing gloves.
The case and the bracelet are made of stainless steel with a TiC (Black Titanium Carbide) coating, and the subtle-domed sapphire crystal bezel adds style while being a central safety piece of the watch.
Unidirectional for better assurance, the bezel is used to accurately monitor the immersion time as well as decompression stops. Water resistant to 200m/660ft and featuring a screwed-in crown, the Skindiver is the perfect companion for underwater expeditions.
The 42mm case features a see-through sapphire crystal case back that offers a unique view of the automatic BALL RR1102 caliber. This movement runs the hour, minute and second hands as well as the day and date functions.
Anti-magnetic to 4,800A/m and shock resistant to 5,000Gs, this limited edition of 390 pieces has been designed for explorers and is ready for adventures.
