The limited-edition Ball Engineer Hydrocarbon Spacemaster Captain Poindexter still makes quite an impression with its massive body and a bold face with broad, pointy hands that look like they were inspired by some super-sword from one of those Final Fantasy series of videogames.
The year of updates continues. This time the American watchmaker Ball Watches has presented its new Engineer Master II Diver (ref. DM2020A-PA-BKGR).
The legendary American brand has just started selling its new member of the Trainmaster line. Ther Ball Trainmaster Eternity (ref. NM2080D-LJ-SL) is claimed to be one of the thinnest self-winding watches in Ball’s whole model range. Although the stainless steel case of the Eternity looks similar to the bodies of other Trainmasters, it is in fact slightly refreshed in order to make the timekeeper both slimmer and more comfortable on a wrist.
Probably inspired by a similarly named family of antimagnetic timekeepers from *ahem* another Swiss-based watchmaker, the new Ball Engineer Hydrocarbon DeepQuest (Ref. DM3000A-SCJ-BK) still has a selling point of its own. Even two of them if you count in the “wow” factor. The first selling point is its impressive water resistance rating of whole three thousand meters (almost ten thousand feet,) which makes it an impressive homage to a true old-school professional diving instrument.
The 2011 Ball Storm Chaser DLC Glow Chronograph (ref. CM2192C-P1J-BK) may be the answer for those looking for a watch that glows, um, all night long. Even if it is an endless, life-draining polar night, you will never have to worry about your beloved timekeeper losing its brightness: the mildly radioactive gas that is stored inside its micro-tube will have enough own energy to keep glowing for ages.
