Ball – Engineer II Green Berets

Ball Watch Company has announced that it will introduce the Engineer II Green Berets, a new addition to its collection for the year.

The green beret was the official headdress of the British Commandos during the Second World War. Still worn by members of the Royal Marines and other units after passing the Commando Course, this is where the new 43 mm timepiece takes its inspiration.

Its titanium carbide case – which ensures that it is lightweight, yet extremely resistant against corrosion and oxidation – encases an automatic caliber Ball RR1103-C movement with hours, minutes, sweep seconds and magnified date display.

Certified by the Official Swiss Chronometer Testing Institute (COSC), the watch is shock resistant to 5,000Gs and anti-magnetic to 4,800A/m. The hour, minute, second hands and dial itself boast 15 micro gas tubes that ensure its readability under a variety of lighting conditions. All of which are housed within a sapphire crystal display with anti-reflective coating.

Its caseback includes a reminder of the American origins of Ball Watch Company, featuring the United States Army “Special Forces Airborne” insignia and the units motto, the Latin phrase “De oppresso liber” (“Free from oppression”).

The Ball Engineer II Green Berets is water resistant up to a pressure of 10 bar (100 meters or 330 feet) and is supplied on a nubuck leather strap with standard buckle.
