Ball Watch Company has announced that it will launch the Engineer II Volcano, a new timepiece that is created from materials never before used in the world of watchmaking.
The 45 mm watch is produced using mumetal and carbide composite, to ensure its protection against the environments. It will contain an in-house automatic caliber Ball RR1102-C mechanism that is shock resistant to 5,000Gs.
In addition to featuring hour, minute, sweep seconds, and day and date functions, the watch has been certified by the Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute (COSC).

This allows for the piece to be easily read in the dark through its luminescent qualities. It is further complemented by subtle touches of red that play on the name of the piece and the lava of a volcano.
