The Engineer II is about decipherability and dependability – the most basic highlights for anybody entrusted with guaranteeing that trains run on schedule. These characteristics don’t hurt with regards to a military application, either, and I feel that fills in as a coherent beginning spot to assemble the association between the Engineer II and the Marine Corps. Each watch in this new assortment includes the U.S. Marine Corps symbol on the dial, and is intended to fill in as a no-compromises device watch that can withstand anything you may toss at it. 

The assortment comprises of two watches, each coming in two distinct sizes. To start with, we have basic time and date configuration coming in 40mm and 43mm forms. This 40mm watch is in treated steel, and the 43mm adaptation is accessible with a dark TiC covering for a subtle and current look. The other watch in the assortment is a GMT, and can be had in a 40mm or 44mm case. The GMT includes a force save at 6:00, alongside a 24 hour scale at 12:00 for showing some other time region. The GMT additionally includes a multicolor version of the Marine Corps logo, though on the standard three hand watch it’s somewhat more modest and more discreet. 

obviously, these watches wouldn’t be Balls on the off chance that they didn’t incorporate a lot of tritium gas tubes for light in obscurity. Every one of these watches in the Engineer II assortment highlight huge gas tubes denoting the hours, and more modest cylinders on the larger than usual blade hands. In the event that you’ve never seen the sparkle of these gas tubes face to face, it’s a serious sight, and altogether different from the advanced non-radioactive iridescent paint that’s now ubiquitous. 

The new Engineer II watches will start delivering in July, and start at $1,499. Ball
