William Massena

Ball watch is growing exponentially in the US, now with about 200 dealers and some prestigious ones such as Tourneau, Topper and Manfredi. Ball introduced a lot of new watches this year and we had a chance to see them at Basel and Paul Boutros took some great pictures for you.

One hundred fifty years ago, during the Civil War, the H.L. Hunley sank off the shores of Charleston, S.C. As one of the first submarines used in a military fashion, the Hunley represented innovation in a new age. Ball pays homage this year to the transport in its new Engineer Hydrocarbon Hunley. The stainless steel case measures 42mm in diameter and includes a unidirectional rotating bezel with luminous paint. The ceramic material utilized on the bezel allows resistance to corrosion, scratches and UV rays. The dial is black with Arabic numerals and a power reserve indicator located at 7 o’clock. In addition, the dial contains H3 micro-gas tubes, allowing greater visibility in the toughest situations. Finishing the timepiece, a tapered stainless steel bracelet with a Ball-patented triple folding buckle. $3899
