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, Ball 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.
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 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 Ball 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 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.comSponsored Posts are a form of advertising that allows sponsors to share useful news, messages, and offers to aBlogtoWatch readers in a way traditional display advertising is often not best suited to.
