Ball Watches has created a watch that it is describing as its "most robust automatic chronograph" to date.
The Engineer Hydrocarbon Spacemaster Orbital II will officially launch at BaselWorld later this year and is a follow up to a previous line launched in 2010.
The mechanical chronograph has been designed to operate in adverse conditions and has been fitted with the brand’s Amortiser anti-shock system. The system is an anti-magnetic protective ring placed around the mechanical movement that absorbs the energy created by side shocks and so protects the movement from bumps and magnetic fields that can affect precision.
The Engineer Hydrocarbon Spacemaster Orbital II has been developed in association with space pilot Brian Binnie, and Ball Watches said that its development will strengthen the brand’s ties with space exploration.
