First launched in 2011, the Ball Watch Engineer Hydrocarbon DeepQUEST is a professional-grade deep-diving instrument.
Undeniably tough and equipped with the necessary diving features, the watch has been subtly redesigned to meet new standards. The new generation model in titanium features BALL’s patented automatic helium release valve directly integrated into the crown, while its ultra-tough monobloc titanium case remains untouched and unrivalled.
The case is made of a single block of solid titanium to reduce potential interfaces and thus effects of water pressure. Titanium not only offers extreme corrosion resistance in water, but also outstanding everyday durability and strength, capable of withstanding and absorbing intense impact.
The Engineer Hydrocarbon DeepQUEST is water resistant up to 1000m/3300ft. The strong crown seals have contributed to avoid any entry of water when it is maintained in the screwed-in position. And in order to safely eliminate the pressure from the watch on the way back to the surface and avoid any damage, a patented automatic helium release valve has been incorporated directly into the crown.
The generously proportioned titanium case as well as the wide dial opening and its streamlined design also enable immediate and clear reading of the timepiece’s indications, another essential feature of any diving watch.
The markings on the rotating bezel allow the diver to accurately monitor the immersion time as well as decompression stops. The bezel has been designed to be easily gripped even with gloves on and its unidirectional rotation is an additional source of safety in the event of its accidental movement while in the water.
For the first time in ceramic, it is available in black or in dark green. Virtually scratchproof, the ceramic can withstand daily knocks and the harshest conditions, while its resistance to ultra-violet rays ensures long lasting color.
To allow instant and reliable visibility in every situation, the dial and the hands feature wider H₃ gas tubes in green and yellow colors, some of the brightest tones that glow in the dark.
The tapered stainless steel and titanium bracelet, with the BALL patented folding buckle and extension system, means the watch can be easily and safely worn on the wrist even over a diving suit. The Engineer Hydrocarbon DeepQUEST has a guaranteed shock resistance of up to 7,500Gs and an antimagnetic endurance of an intensity of up to 4,800A/m.
The 42mm diameter case houses an automatic chronometer certified caliber BALL RR1101-C. The Ball Watch Engineer Hydrocarbon DeepQUEST displays hours, minutes, sweep seconds and date.
