A brand known for offering considerable value and high-end construction in the watches they produce, Ball Watch Company is once again introducing another exciting timepiece to their growing Engineer collection. The Ball Engineer III CarboLIGHT is the brand’s latest model and a watch that fuses two revolutionary materials into the case construction. Here, carbon fiber and mu-metal are both used to produce a case that is ultra-light, corrosion resistant, and highly anti-magnetic. Ball refers to this as their CarboNANO technology and currently, the Ball Engineer III CarboLIGHT is available for a very special pre-order price.
Together with the accompanying stainless steel model – the Ball Engineer III IronLIGHT – the CarboLIGHT marks Ball’s latest plunge into the world of producing robust timepieces with innovative materials. Perhaps the model’s most standout feature is its case, which has a distinct uneven pattern that makes each watch unique. This is a distinguishing trait that’s a result of utilizing carbon, which weighs about 50% less than stainless steel and delivers a significantly lighter feel that is long-lasting. Beneath the surface, Watch Ball Drop Online Replica also integrates a full layer of mu-metal around the movement that enables the watch to both attract and deflect static or low-frequency magnetic field lines for interference-free operation. Pair this with Ball’s Amortiser® system that protects against extreme shock, and you have a watch that can get you through anything.
The Ball Engineer III CarboLIGHT is available in both 40mm and 43mm case sizes with a thickness of 13mm. Both versions are carefully balanced and even the larger version is meant to wear comfortably thanks to the case’s lightweight properties. A large crown allows for easy operation and a durable scratch-resistant sapphire crystal with date magnifier rounds out the CarboLIGHT’s sleek design. Water resistance is 100m.
I never assumed that a universe timer dive watch could be helpful, but think about the fact that it is famous enough for Ball watches to have made a second run of them. Because this is the first review of such a watch, we can bulk the old and the new together. What they updated for the reference DG2022A-S3AJ-BK / DG2022A-P3AJ-BK Ball Engineer Master II Diver Worldtime watch is really just the dial. Compared to the first from 2010, the 2016 models look a bit more sporty and legible, in my opinion, but the differences for the new version are rather small. Ball points to how the new variants have updated technology, but what exactly that means is unclear.Ball suggests that the technology which provides the world time drawback is in-house. That’s because they constructed a module over a base Swiss ETA automatic movement which unite to form the Ball caliber RR1501. In addition to the time, date, and day of the week, the motion has a 24-hour world time sign ring that’s popular on both sport and dress watches nowadays. That said, world time sequences of the ilk have historically been exclusively in the domain of dress watches. It had been brands such as Jaeger-LeCoultre and Girard-Perregaux that helped create this very handy kind of complication something folks wanted to see in game watches.
Additionally, the Ball Engineer III CarboLIGHT can be configured with both a blue or a black dial. Both finishes nicely compliment the carbon fiber case composite and the display is as simple as they come. Large baton indexes mark the hours and large sword hands are used for quick and easy legibility. Here, we also see a Ball Watches Light Replica signature – self-powered micro gas light tubes that require no external charging.
Another standout feature is the movement, which is a COSC chronometer certified automatic caliber Review Of Ball Watches Replica RR1103-C. The base is the ETA 2824 with a 38 hour power reserve and 28,800bph operational frequency. Besides the highly precise nature of the movement, the included Amortiser® system helps protect it from lateral impacts. Finally, the Ball Engineer III CarboLIGHT comes with a calf leather strap with pin buckle or a black rubber strap for a more rugged and casual feel.
Currently, the Ball Engineer III CarboLIGHT is available for a special pre-order price of $1,299 until November 30, 2017. Like previous pre-order deals, Ball Watch Deepquest Replica offers complementary caseback engraving for an even more personal touch. The Ball Engineer III CarboLIGHT is limited to 1,000 pieces and you can learn more by visiting the brand’s official site. ballwatch.com
